The Funky Bunch
This pack features (l to r):
(Mosel, Germany) Staffelter Hof - Portugeezer Pet Nat 2020
A very limited pet nat (sparkling) made from two Portuguese varieties (Arinto and Fernao Pires) that were planted by Jan Klein a few years ago as part of a climate change experiment. The grapes have ripened beautifully and make up this top notch sparkling wine. It is tense, super crisp and refreshing, serious and fun at the same time, with a juicy acidity that is balanced by its creamy bubbles
(Penedes, Spain) Entre Vinyes - Sotaterra 2020
Epic orange wine made from 80-yr old vines of Macabeo. Two weeks of skin contact and aging in amphoras buried in the middle of the vineyards. This wine has such a lovely herbal character, fresh stone fruit notes, some sweet spice and a flinty edge. Full of character yet low alcohol and super fresh.
(Conca de Barbera, Spain) Lectores Vini - Pomagrana 2020
The ultimate light red. 100% Trepat aged in steel tanks. This is pure juice, with notes of cranberry and pomegranate, and a gently spicy backbone. Light, pure, juicy, an absolute pleasure. Fantastic as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to most meals.
(Hlohovec, Slovakia) Slobodne - Majer NV
This is a pretty special red. This multi vintage blend is made from Blaufrankisch, Alibernet, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was made over the course of various years, and is a blend of wines aged in a varitety of vessels including barrels, steel tanks, clay eggs, and more. The result is a rounded and textured red with very soft tannins, a juicy core but complemented by sweet spices and earthiness
