Michel Guignier Beaujolais 2020 – Guignier’s 2019 Beaujolais bursts with aromas of Morello cherries, sweet berries and toasted almonds, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy palate that’s succulent and enveloping. Produced from certified organic vineyards, this is a great value! (O) (B)

Sikelè Bianco Grecanico – This wine opens with a buckwheat honey and cedar nose, aromas which translate into those flavors on the palate, with herbal and light tobacco aromatics, a balancing acidity, and chestnuts on the finish. The beautiful texture of this is a great “intro” to “orange” wine also known as skin-contact, white wine.

Red $30 and under

Niepoort Conciso 2014 –  From 100 year old vines in central Portugal, this just-med bodied red blend is terroir-driven & dry with secondary character from 7 years in bottle. Structured and expansive, the wine commands attention.  (O)

Pittnauer ‘Perfect Day’ 2020 –  ‘Perfect Day’ is an orange wine for every occasion. The unique blend of separately fermented Chardonnay, Muscat,  Gruner Veltliner, and Traminer creates a balanced, easy drinking, skin-contact white with just a touch of tannin to give it some structure. The palate is clean, like biting into a perfectly ripe nectarine with a touch of white grapefruit, lemon pith and savory, wet stone finish.

Red Wine $30++

White, Orange & Rosé Wine $30++

Wenzel Furmint Aus dem Quarz 2019 – Organically and biodynamically grown Furmint. An indigenous Austrian varietal that has characteristics of orchard fruit and lemon with a succulent yet refreshingly crisp + mineral finish. (O) (B)

 

Pavese Ermes Blanc de Morgex et de la Salle 2020 – Made from a grape called Prié Blanc, this wine comes from extremely high altitude, just minutes from the summit of Mont Blanc. Mountain flowers, rocky minerality, great acidity, layers of delicious interest. (O)

 

Goncalves Faria Vinho Branco 2015 – The 2015 Gonçalves Faria Branco is a field blend of Bical and Maria Gomes, fermented in stainless steel and aged for 18 months.  Full bodied for the region and mouth coating, with a slightly tart edge. This gorgeous white shows both concentration and structure.  This is built to age and will be better a few more years down the road, but if one decants it for thirty minutes prior to drinking, it is already quite enjoyable. A lovely bottle. (O)
