Gaia Santorini Wild Ferment Assyrtiko 2017: “This is a Santorini unlike any other. Cold macerated for 12 hours on the skins, then fermented without any added yeasts in an array of French and American oak barrels, as well as some made from acacia, it could stand in for a young Meursault. The initial oak scents are quickly subsumed in a tsunami of saline, chalky flavor, broad and savory, the texture as creamy as a meringue. It lasts on salt, lemon and chalk, ready to take on sliced leg of lamb with avgolemono.”

Muga Rosado Rioja 2017: #93 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2018. When Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932, it was actually called Claretes Muga, or “Rosés Muga,” due to the company’s specialty of high quality traditional claretes from Rioja. A clarete is a rosé that is produced from cofermenting red and white grapes. This was particularly common when the highest proportion of red varietals in Rioja was dominated by Garnacha. Today, Muga continues this tradition with Muga Rosé, which is Spain’s most respected and demanded rosé.
