FORGET SAUV, GRIGIO AND CHARDY, THESE ALT. WHITES ARE ALL DRY AND INCREDIBLY DRINKABLE - HAVE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE!
From Italy, Novaripa Agronika from Abruzzo and made from the little known grape PASSERINA is a saline and crisp white from, it's crying out for a bit of white fish! From the cooler North of Italy in Friuli Giulia, Vini Stocco FRUILANO is a savoury, Umami-led number with more texture than your average Grigio. From the South in Campania, Domus Vini Terre Borboniche from Beneventano is made from FALANGHINA, and it will immediately transport you to the South of Italy.
From Spain, Success Experiencia from Conca de Barbera is made from the little known grape PARALLEDA, a chief component of Cava. 50% skin contact, this could be seen as a great intro to so-called Orange Wine, but atypically for the style, it is super smashable. Mateos Inconsciente from Rioja is made from TEMPRANILLO BLANCO, it is a fruity and exotic number from a region where the reds usually get all the attention.
Finishing in Portugal and the increasingly popular region Lisboa, Quinta do Gradil 1492 Branco is made from ARINTO. Right on the coast of Portugal, the Atlantic Ocean imbues this wine with a magnificent salty freshness.
ALL DRY, ALL DELICIOUS
