Dan's December 6 Pack
This is a 6 pack of wines hand-picked by Dan for the holiday season. Everything in this case is drinking beautifully right now and offers everything you might look for in 6 different bottles of wine; drinkability, vitality, richness, lightness, character, complexity.
This case includes the following 6 wines and a complimentary copy of Pipette Natural Wine Magazine:
2018 Jauma Chenin Spritz
Pétillant Naturel Chenin Blanc from James Erskine (Jauma) in South Australia. Bright, fresh and cleansing; laced with acid, delicious, clean and pure summertime refreshment! Organic, no added sulphites. $45
2018 Gentle Folk Scary Gully White
Delicious, fresh, textural white from Basket Range. Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay co-fermented together with Gewurztraminer skins for additional aromatics. Organic. $40
2017 Momento Mori Bianco
A lightly-handled, skin-fermented Fiano from Dane Johns in Victoria, Australia. Picture the aromatics of an 'orange' wine with the soft, gentle touch of a white. Organic, no added sulphites. $59
2018 Jumpin' Juice Sunset
Not at all a common blend, but one that Patrick Sullivan should be commended for; Sauvignon Blanc (approx 95%) and Cabernet Sauvignon. Pressed with just enough time on its skins to give it a beautiful copper/dark pink colour, this is a rosé for December weather. Biodynamic. $34
2015 Domaine Matassa El Sarrat
100% Mourvèdre from the schistous southern slopes of Calce, Languedoc (the South of France). This is a wine that defies all odds for me - a classically dark-fruited, deep and intense varietal, here it is handled in the most gentle fashion; harvested early by hand at just 11.5% alc/vol, fermented in concrete and then gently pressed into large, old wooden barrels to rest for a year. Soft and supple. Biodynamic. $56
2016 Hervé Souhaut Syrah
High-altitude, cool-climate Syrah from the toothsome granitic soils of Arlebosc, Ardèche (a little-known appellation to the West of Hermitage, Rhône). Winemaker/vigneron Hervé is a French legend, and rightly so; working under Thierry Allemand until taking over his wife's family estate in the 90's. His wines are a juxtaposition of density, finesse, concentration and lightness. Organic. $49
Only 12x six packs available.
