From l to r:

(Tuscany, Italy) Fattoria di Sammontana - Prunecchio 2020

An exciting blend of Trebbiano, Sauv Blanc, and Malvasia. The Trebbiano Toscano brings a saline and mineral edge, the Sauvignon brings freshness and texture, whilst the pinch of Malvasia adds a gorgeous aromatic lift. A refreshing wine that punches above its weight year after year.  Made by Daniele & Dario, the fourth generation at this Tuscan estate. Within the range they make a balanced mix of traditional Sangioveses along with experimental wines vinified in clay amphoras (see the orange wine section).

(Puglia, Italy) L'Archetipo - Fiano 2019

Pure saline elegance. This wine is made from the Fiano Minutolo variety, known for its soft floral aromatics and distinct mineral character when produced naturally. Enticing nose, and a complex, lean, fresh, textured palate with a finish that lingers. Perfect for the dinner table. Made by Valentino Dibenedetto and his four children, who together run the project L'Archetipo. Rooted in the concepts of synergistic agriculture, they are at the forefront of Italy's no-till regenerative viticulture movement. Farming vines alongside ancient grains, the aim is proper soil health, which ultimately leads to grapes and wines of insane balance and energy.

(Languedoc, France) Mas d'Agalis - Le Grand Carré 2020

Primarily made from Terret, with some Chenin, Clairette, and Vermentino. A proper southern French white but without the weight or warmth. This is soft, delicate, and lightly perfumed. The perfect balance of texture, minerality, and freshness. Absolutely delightful. Made by Lionel Maurel, a fourth generation grower who took over the family vines after stints working with some of the biggest names in the natural wine world across France.

He primarily works with an 'infusion' style of winemaking, favouring gentle and light extractions as opposed to the more powerful examples that are common in this region. His wines are delicate, elegant, and fresh - real expressions of his immediate subzone and soils.
