Syrah, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
This stupendous, single-varietal Syrah from Southern France is not only an incredible value, it’s also incredibly delicious! Maison Ventenac practices sustainable agriculture, never using chemical treatments on their soils and farming as naturally as possible. Fermented and aged in concrete without sulphites, this supple & slightly crunchy red goes down real easy with notes of red cherry, blackcurrant and black pepper. We could drink this everyday and never get bored of it, a real Goldilocks wine!
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Abruzzo, Italy
Cristina Tiberio is a former chemist who trained in Champagne, Chablis and the Mosel before taking the helm of her family’s winery in Abruzzo, Italy. This is one of her many elegant and affecting odes to the regional Italian grapes that have defined (and until recently, were neglected in) the region for centuries. The grapes are organically farmed from 50 year old vines and vinified as clean, low-intervention wines that are approachable and food-friendly, something for you but also your Merlot-obsessed uncle! Drinks like Tilda Swinton in I Am Love, silk-lined, pedigreed and impeccable with notes of IKEA lingonberry jam, ripe cherries and blackcurrant cassis on a palazzo, not a villa, darling. As the night (and wine) wanes, Cuban cigars emerge with a hint of raw leather and river earth. Pairs perfectly with meaty proteins, Marcella Hazan’s tomato sauce & someone else doing the cleaning.
Cab Sauv, Cab Franc & friends, Niagara, Canada
From just around the corner we have this wild & luscious Bordeaux blend from our pals over at Rosewood! Inspired by the fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland, to us this gives off more of a Narnia vibe, wintery & orchestral, with notes of dusty cocoa, dried herbs, hot blackberry crumble & toasted oak. It’s a velvet cape!
