Reds (1 of each)
MA Arndorfer, Vorgeschmack Red, 2018 - Kamptal, Austria ~ 11.5%
80% Zweigelt and 20% Pinot Noir. Delicious red that can be chilled but also has sufficient poke for food. Zweigelt gives a simple fruity rustic quality (blue-and-blackberries), Pinot Noir confers some structure, tannin and mineral seriousness.
Ferdinando Principiano, Dosset, 2019 - Langhe, Italy ~ 11%
100% Dosset. Deep ruby with violet tinges, intense and complex with subtle notes of ripe red and black fruits as well as prunes and liquorice. As the wine opens it shows some spiciness and an earthy touch. Light and elegant tannins
Pol Opuesto, Que Grande SOS, 2017 - Mendoza, Argentina ~ 11.5%
100% Field Blend! Super juicy with bright red fruits and finely grained tannins.
Whites (1 of each)
Bodegas Ameztoi, Txakoli de Getaria 2019 - Basque, Spain ~ 11%
100% Hondarrabi Zuri. Pale green, faint aromas of green apples and plums, very light bright, sharp and salty with biting acidity and a savoury saltiness as well as the classic Txakoli "spritz".
Matthias Warnung, Basis Gruner Veltliner NV, Kamptal, Austria ~ 11.5%
100% Gruner Veltliner. The nose is open and ripe with good apple pie and bell pepper aromas. The palate is rich with fleshy fruit and good acidity, with fresh herbs, flowers and light pepper tones.
Celler Credo, Miranius, 2019, Barcelona, Spain ~ 11%
100% Xarel-lo. The freshest, most genuine expression of the Mediterranean Xarel·lo grown on calcareous soils. The wine is light-medium bodied with great vivacity and apple-rind and citrus flavours.
