Disznoko 2013 Tokaji 5 Puttonyos 500ml

Disznóko estate is named after the vineyard of Disznóko, first recorded in 1413. The name Disznóko means "wild boar stone", referring to a large volcanic rock found at the heart of the vineyard or according to some geographers to the shape of the hill where the vineyards are planted. Most of Disznoko's vineyards were picked as First Growths at the 1735 Classification of Tokaj (over 100 years prior to that of Bordeaux!) The 2013 Aszu has hit the sweet spot of perfect balance between its vibrant acidity and delicate sweetness with layer upon layer of complexity. A blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zéta & 10% Hárslevelu; the late ripening and development of botrytis in 2013 produced intense notes of citrus and white flowers evolving in the glass into stony minerality and  luscious apricot with a satiny texture and long finish. Ethereal yet concentrated and absolutely elegant. Giselle Hamburg

Domaine Tatsis (Goumenissa, Greece) 2019 Macedonia Xinomavro/Negoska 'Young Vines

From Goumenissa in central Macedonia, the ancient capital of Macedon and birthplace of Alexander the Great. One of the first Greek wineries to convert to organic viticulture in the 90s. They release their appellation Goumenissas with significant bottle aging for a true representation of the wine as it should be enjoyed unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur at bottling.. A blend of  80%Xinomavro and 20% Negoska, the nose is redolent of tomato leaf, wet earth, black cherries and a touch of black pepper.  High acidity and structure from the Xinomavro paired with the higher alcohol yet soft tannins from the Negoska dances on the tongue like a gymnast flipping through the air. For lovers of  Nebbiolo & Tuscan Sangiovese. The 2019 vintage is a, lighter, more elegant expression, velvety and sleek. Pair with local dishes like roast pork with leeks & mushrooms as well as wild boar with chestnuts and olives. GH

Halkia Reddish 2022 Corinthia (Greece) Agiorgitiko

Anna Halkia is a small organic female grower and winemaker in Corinth, Nemea, the largest winemaking region of Greece and home to the Agiorgitiko grape (which is the most planted red Greek grape). Anna grew up in Australia with her immigrant parents, and moved back to Nemea as an adult. In the early 2000s, she decided to create a basic winemaking facility in the back of her house, where the family’s vineyards are located. Necessity turned her to wild fermentation and lo-fi winemaking. Anna also applied and received her organic certification. This is the light version of her regular Agiorgitiko with only a couple hours skin contact. Like a pale, ruby rose, it shows notes of berries and  garrigue with bright, peppery acidity. Eminently chillable, it's the perfect foil to all your picnic, barbecue and grilling needs. Guaranteed not to put you to sleep on Thanksgiving!  Giselle Hamburg
