WELCOME TO OUR GLOU GLOU NATURAL WINE BOX!
Natural wine is famous for its chuggable low ABV, easy drinking wines! There is a great review of what it is and its history by Sprudge Wine if you want to know more about it!
For this box, we've taken 6 bottles of what should be over $166.65 of natural wine and discounted it to $149.99 so that you can glou your heart out!
Here's what's in the box:
Les Tondeuses | Domaine Mamaruta
Carignan/Grenache blend. Made from 70 year old vines. A beautiful example of a Fitou wine. Named for the lawnmowers of the vineyard (the cows), this wine is packed with fruit and perfect glou glou! With an explosive nose of red berries, cherry, spices, the mouth is round although tense, for a crunchy juice at will.
Embuscade | Domaine de l'Envol
The best comparison I can make is that it is like a very dry Lambrusco and we’re super excited to drink it with barbeques or by itself with only 12.5% alcohol. The loosely translates to ambush, where you enter a party and are ambushed by the wine because it’s time to party. Raphael gave it this name because it is exactly that, once you pop it it’s miraculously gone in a flash because it’s such easy drinking.
Blauer Portugieser | Nibiru
50/50 whole bunch and destemmed Blauer Portugieser grapes. Unfined, unfiltered, spontaneous fermentation. We recommend serving slightly chilled!
Benimaquia Tinajas | Vinessens
Manual harvest into small crates with the muse fermenting on skins in clay amphora with no added SO2, 6 months on skins. Deep bronze color. Lovely sweet peach and apricot on the nose with the same plus lemon and some grip on the palette. Quite dry with some tannin and leaving you wanting more.
Saignee Rosato | Aldo Viola
Delicious blend of Nerello Mascalese, Perricone, and Syrah. This is the wine that Holly tried and convinced her to import natural wine only! Get ready for a lovely earthy flavor and bit of funk on the end. This rose can get you through the winter with its dark and brooding acidity.
Sylvaner | Domaine de l'Envol
This macerated Sylvaner has so many notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and a tiny hint of tannin that makes it a perfect light orange wine. It spent 2 weeks on its skins with no sulfites added and came from an old vineyard close to Raphael’s village with limestone and marl terroir.
Piranha | David Large
This is a negoce wine grown in clay/limestone. It’s well structured, and is a little stronger than its 12.5% alcohol would assume. The name Piranha stems from the fact that when he got started, David was considered a small fish in the region. However, Piranhas are tough, toothy, and should be taken seriously!
