4 bottles of the fancy stuff right here.
Rosi Schuster, Aus Den Dorfern.
"From the villages", this is a blend of Gruner Veltliner from a handful of villages around Burgenland where Rosi and Hannes make their wines.
This is bright and textural, really rich but mineral and elegant at the same time. This is really top flight Gruner.
Vale da Capucha, Arinto.
A rich and generous Portugese wine with a lick of minerality keeping things proper. The soils are mostly Kimmeridgian clay, similar to those found in Chablis, with high proportion of ocean fossils elevating the calcium carbonate content. His vineyards are just 9km inland, with fresh Atlantic breezes to bathe the vineyards, further enhancing the saline element in the wines and tempering the warmth of the region.
Tomas Cacik, Frankovka.
An unfiltered blaufränkisch (Frankovka locally) from the Czech Republic, made by former chef turned winemaker, Tomáš Cacík. His minimal-intervention approach strips the winemaking process right back, and the deliciously unadulterated result has fresh red-fruit aromas with a lovely hint of leather, bright acidity on the crisp, crunchy palate and succulent strawberry-flavoured charm.
Domaine Raspail-ay, Gigondas.
Classic big southern Rhone drinker here. Super traditional old winery, meaning it's essentially a natural wine, before it was cool!
Vegan, no fining and only light filtration, this is full of baked red and black fruits with the classic garrigue herbiness and a note of meat stock.
