Famille Coulon, Vin de France Rosé BiotifulFOX (2018)

Category: Wine – Still – Rosé
Geography: Rhône Valley, France
Appellation: Vin de France

For seven generations, the Beaurenard Family has produced some of France’s most exquisite Rhône Valley wines—especially their Chateauneuf-du-Pape.  Just north of Provence, they’ve recently started making a rosé which is equally elegant—offering all of the finesse of a French rosé while being one of only three completely organic and biodynamic wineries in the area!  Light and lovely, with beautiful berries and a dry finish, this wine is great with chicken salad or a fabulous friend!


Mora e Memo, Tino Vermentino di Sardegna (2018)

Category: Wine – Still – White
Geography: Sardinia, Italy
Appellation: Sardegna
Vermentino is a fashionable aromatic speciality of Sardinia – it can make some of Sardinia’s liveliest whites, with a slight prickle of gas.In a region dominated by co- op’s, Mora e Memo stand out for many reasons. This beautiful estate sits high in the hills in the South East of Sardinia just a few kilometres from the sea. Focused on the indigenous Sardinian varieties of Cannonau and Vermentino the combination of mature vineyards, sensitive farming and a delicate touch in their modern and technologically well equipped cellar results in elegant, vibrant mineral wines- very different from the rustic Sardinian norm.
Bright straw-green. Strongly herbal and minty notes to the pomaceous orchard fruit on the nose. Then bright, dense and saline, displaying an impressive spectrum of unripe stone fruit to tropical fruit flavors, complicated by a note of anise. Finishes big, round and long. A very fleshy style of Vermentino (it spends roughly two months on the lees) that packs a lot of power. The wine’s name, “Tino,” is a diminutive of Vermentino, though it’s so big and round you couldn’t be blamed for thinking they should have called it “Tone,” as in “Vermentone.” The vines are planted on mainly schistous clay soils with a little limestone.

Elena Walch, Südtirol Alto Adige Schiava (2018)

Grape: Schiava
Geography: Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
Appellation: Südtirol – Alto Adige
Elena is a feminine force to be reckoned with in the northeastern region of Alto-Adige. A former architect, Elena Walch became a wine producer in 1985 after marrying into one of the oldest wine families of Südtirol. Now she manages two historical estates at the sites of Castel Ringberg and Kastelaz. In these two distinct terroir on the hillsides above the village of Tramin (45 miles south of Austria), Walch produces Italian, French and German varietals.

Bright ruby in colour with a delicate hint of cherry on the nose. On the palate, it is harmonious and elegant due to naturally mild acidity and tannin with a pleasant bitter almond flavor on the finish. An elegant, fruity red wine with good lengths.

An interesting wine for Mediterranean and Pasta dishes, as well as antipasti. Serve chilled.
