The Funky Bunch (4-pack)
This pack features
(Piemonte, Italy) Cascina Zerbetta - Shan Pan 2021
A unique sparkling wine made from Sauvignon Blanc in Italy's Northwest. This wine is refermented using no sugar or yeast additions, but rather using grape juice extracted from late harvest grapes of the same vineyard. It's funky, toasty, aromatic, and the perfect balance of fruit and yeasty complexity. Its soft bubbles make it a pleasure to drink.
(Catalunya, Spain) Lectores Vini - Pomagrana Blanco 2021
Very expressive Xarel-lo, partly aged in barrel and partly in steel tanks. Lean but full of flinty, salty notes, and a surprisingly complex and long finish. Epic white wine. Lectores Vini is a collaborative project between Fredi Torres and Marc Lecha, seeking to showcase pure expressions of the Montsant region along with Priorat and Conca de Barbera, all located in Catalunya.
(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
(Languedoc, France) Mas d'Agalis - Navis 2019
A serious, structured red from Southern France. This Mourvedre & Grenache dominant blend went through strict selection of the best bunches, was made in an infusion style for a delicate expression, and was aged in barrels for 18 months. The result is a wine that is drinking beautifully now but will keep improving. Potent aromatic of red fruits and wild herbs, a medium/structured body, and a complex, long finish.
