(Kamptal, Austria) Nibiru - Grundstein Grüner Veltliner 2019
Linear and mineral, dry and crisp. Very refreshing with just a touch of texture, and a distinct saline finish. Will comfortably accompany most meals. A great entry-point into the wines of Julia & Josef, a young couple who are only on their third vintage but showing impressive maturity.
(Navarra, Spain) Azul y Garanza - Blanco 2019
Easy going but very moreish white, crisp and fresh. The aromatic is very enticing, and on the palate the wine is soft yet generous. A perfect every day wine that should please all tastes. Made by Maria, Dani, and Fernando, a dynamic trio who slowly converted an abandoned cooperative building in their village of Carcastillo to a fully operational winery. A huge commitment to biodiversity in the vines leads to wines of pronounced purity.
(Tuscany, Italy) Fattoria di Sammontana - Prunecchio 2019
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).
