2020 Blanco (Forlong, Bodegas)

Bodega de Forlong, Blanco, Cadiz, Andalucía, Spain 2020

{organic} 90% Palomino, 10% Pedro Ximenez (Amphora aged)

LEMON, SAGE, SALINE MINERAL. DRY, JUICY, CLEAN & PRETTY.

As the label suggests, this wine is all business when it comes to seafood. Juicy, dry and evocative of the sea, even before the aromas of your seafood dinner have chimed in. Made from the key grapes of the Sherry (Jerez) region, but not given the distinctive sherry-aging treatment; so think subtle Chablis, Verdicchio, or Muscadet as benchmarks. This young couple, Alex and Rocio, are hitting it out of the park. A Wine Authorities exclusive.

Serving Suggestion: Fried oysters or clams. Shrimp a la plancha. Flounder meunier. Simply stir-fried vegetables. Surprisingly, it is also great w/ fatty, umami-rich dishes.

Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Nature (Bulliat, Vignobles)

Vignobles Bulliat, Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Nature, Beaujolais, France

{organic} 100% Chardonnay

CRISP ROME APPLE & KOREAN PEAR, ZESTY CHALK

Ferociously fresh, the Brut Nature bubbly from Beaujolais’s Bulliat excels exceptionally. Made entirely from Chardonnay (as is the case with much Crémant de Bourgogne as well as Champagne further north) and, without even the faintest whisper of sweetness, it’s bone dry while maintaining a rich, mouthfilling ripeness reminiscent of crisp pear and creamy apple. A vibrant mineral component comes through elegantly and athletically on the finish. Pop!

Serving Suggestion: Bite-sized spinach-artichoke quiche w/ fontina & crisp, buttery crust. An hors d’ouvres champion!

2020 Grenache Blanc / Roussanne (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Grenache Blanc / Roussanne, Languedoc, France, 2020

{sustainable} 60% Grenache Blanc, 40% Rousanne

RIPE NECTARINE & TROPICAL FRUIT, ZESTY WHITE PEPPER, GENTLE TOAST

Full-bodied yet balancing its rich ripeness with healthy acidity, this impressive Eastern Languedoc offering carries itself like what would often be a more expensive Southern Rhone white. Time in oak barrels (utilized after a couple years’ service in Burgundy’s Beaune) has imbued a light toastiness that doesn’t detract from the extroverted tropicality or freshness and adds an extra dimension of luxury.

Serving Suggestion: Triggerfish w/ avocado oil & aioli w/ onion rings. Savory, twice-fried plantains & cabbage salad w/ cilantro & orange-glazed carrot ribbons.

Lambrusco Rosato (Lini Oreste & Figli)

LINI, Lambrusco Rosato "Labrusca Lini 910", Emilia Romagna, Italy (2009)

Lambrusco Salamino, Ancellotta

DRY, LIGHT BERRY, HINT OF TANNIN, EFFERVESCENT

"Labrusca" is the Etruscan name for Lambrusco coming from the Latin labrum, meaning "edge." It is believed that Lambrusco grapes grew naturally along the edges of fields cultivated by the Etruscans food crops. Lini was established in 1910 and today is quite possibly the finest Lambrusco in all of Emilia Romagna. Fabio Lini and his daughter Alicia are responsible for this delicious dry, pink version of Lambrusco. Tart and thirst quenching with light tannin from the grape skins, this gentle pink wine has a firm backbone, perfect with picnic food.

Serving Suggestion: Chilled lightly, this dry rosato is picnic wine for everything from chicken salad, tuna salad, humus and veggies, chips and dip. At the dinner table, try a prosciutto and fresh mozzarella cheese pizza.
