Here’s a handful of organic wines that we have encountered recently that we certainly recommend trying:
Anima, Avondale, Chenin Blanc, 2013, South Africa, ~15 €. Nice honey tone, a little pineapple and citrus, elegant and subtle oak. The wine is full-bodied without being heavy.
Vacqueyras Garrigues, Domaine Montirius, Vacqueyras, France, ~16 €. Clean and nice fruit flavours without the slightest aging in oak. As the name indicates there is some garrigue aromas, especially Provencal herbs and juniper. The grapes are Grenache and Syrah.
Pura Fe, Antiyal, Garnacha Syrah 2013, Maipo, Chile, ~16 €. Antiyal was founded in 1996 by Alvaro Espinoza, one of the world’s most influential biodynamic winemaker. Here we have an intense, tasty and ripe fruit and also a good structure.
Mas Sinén Negre, Priorat, Spain, ~19 €
50% Garnacha and the rest is Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Concentrated and powerful wine, some oak but everything in perfect balance.
Cavalier Cesare Canonica, Langhe Nebbiolo , Piemonte, ~19 €. Good acidity and firm tannins. Exactly what you want from a Nebbiolo.
