Rebula Goriška Brda Ribolla Gialla

A really lovely value skin contact from Slovenia. Delicate oak on the nose, one expects a bit of sweetness but it is bone dry and acidic. It’s surprising but turns out to be great for food (branzino for us). Super clean and elegant for a skin contact wine. Curious if anyone has had an aged bottle… would consider cellaring a couple bottles. — 3 months ago

Vare Vineyard Ribolla Gialla 2019

[notes for RB 2019 Gittens Vineyard] Orange wine. Destemmed, 6 months on skin then 6 months aging in emphorae. Ex alnort-robert amphorae. Hazy and orange in color. Jasmine, Gatorade, white pepper, citrus, dried orange candy, sour cherry. High acidity, med tannins, med+ finish. Lovely texture on the palate. — 6 months ago

Skin Fermented Carneros Chardonnay 2021

Overall subtle despite the skin on fermentation: good minerality and apple fruit notes and acid, just a small touch of the natural wine taste. Loved it! — a month ago

Enderle & Moll

Müller Thurgau 2020

E&M's "Muller" I've had many times before. Consistently good, even if it doesn't really fill the role of natty wine for the natty crowd, which is clearly the intention here (they make a Weiss and and Grau and and Weiss & Grau which are way wilder imho). Baby skin contact - you can hardly notice. Refreshingly light at 11%, it has a little cream and yeasty element, a little cool to the touch. Notes in the apple, pear, floral vertical. — 4 months ago

Fontanasanta Vigneti Delle Dolomiti Nosiola 2020

This wine would deserve more reputatuon in my personal opinion.
If you don't know that it ages in clay amphora on the skin for quote a long time, if you don't know that is biodynamic and that altogether there very minimal intervention in the whole process you would just go...WOW!!! It reminds a Chassagne-Montrachet for elegance and balance, a good one i mean
Complexity is there, easy drinking and potential to age. Quite long too. What more do we want? Price for the quality is fair, not cheap, bit not overly expensive(arou d 40euros served in a restaurant)

Weiss & Grau Burgunder Weißburgunder Grauburgunder 2021

Lyle Fass
9.3

Killer nose. Loads of lemon/lime. Floral, super clean nose. Very nice. Less wild. Veg clean and pure. Juicy and pure. Apricot and juicy pears. Very elegant and not very “natural” which is a good thing! Lovely inner mouth aroma. 3-4 day skin contact. — 6 months ago

The Hermit Ram

Skin Fermented Field Blend Red Blend 2021

I think this had 6 or 7 different varietals in the blend, including some I never thought would work together (Cabernet Sauvignon AND Gewurtztraminer?!?!) But the result was a very tasty, juicy red that was light-to-meduum bodied with refreshing acidity and red fruits. A great summer red option. — 7 months ago
