Pairs perfectly with grilled fish and shellfish, grilled poultry, salads, berries, stone fruits and charcuterie.
Ameztoi Txakolina 2019 (Basque Country, Spain)
Light, crisp, refreshing and low alcohol, Ameztoi Txakolina is bottled with a touch of residual carbon dioxide gas to give it its natural, signature, spritzy style. Made exclusively from indigenous Hondarrabi Zuri grapes, this is a fun wine with salty and briny notes, crisp acidity, and refreshing effervescence that complements seafood dishes.
Carussin “Lia Vi” Barbera d’Asti 2017 (Piedmont, Italy)
Organic and natural, this is a perfect springtime Barbera that is ready to drink now, but you could cellar it for 2-3 years. On the nose, it’s intense and complex with hints of fruit compote, currant, cherry and plum. Energetic, bright, fresh and a tad funky. Pairs wonderfully with hard cheeses, pasta (even pastas with a little spice) and grilled meats.
Tikves Vranec Special Selection 2017 (Macedonia)
There’s growing interest in wines from Eastern Europe, an often overlooked region despite its ancient grape growing tradition and indigenous varieties. Tikves Winery’s Vranec is intense, dark ruby red in color with a rich full body and supple tannins. Raspberry, earthy, black currant with peppery spice and chocolate notes. Enjoy Vranec with duck breast and lamb.
Gen Del Alma Jijiji 2020 (Uco Valley, Argentina)
A 50-50 blend of Malbec and Pinot Noir, this natural wine has a huge vibrant nose of red fruits, violets and caramel apple. Rood acid lifts the palate with notes of rhubarb, red cherry, orange peel, mushroom and flint. It’s juicy, dark, vibrant and a little funky. Though offering bigger tannins than the average light-bodied wine, Jijiji is defined by freshness and bright acid.
