...MOVE AWAY FROM SAUV, CHARDONNAY, PINOT & SYRAH...
We can all get stuck in the familiarity of grapes that we know. Broaden your horizons. 3 whites & 3 reds.
In the whites, from Italy, I Clivi FRUILANO is an umami-led, savoury and racy white from the North. Moving stateside, Folk Machine White Light (White Heat) inspired by the Velvet Underground packs in a load of varieties for a seriously unusual blend: TOCAI / RIESLING / VERDEHLO & SAUVIGNON BLANC. Bruno Lupin Frangy from Savoie in France is made from ALTESE, it is refreshing but luxurious.
In the reds, Oludeo Monastrell 2016 is made by Irish wine maker Simon Tyrell in Spain, it is made with MONASTRELL and has a nice bit of age. From Greece, Lyrarakis KOTSIFALI is a little known Greek red that is deliciously smashable. Finishing with the forgotten grape of the North of Italy; Trediberri Dogliani DOLCETTO, the ultimate pizza wine! STSWine
