Organic

Natural

Wine made from organically or biodynamically grown grapes with minimal intervention avoiding the use of chemicals, additives and technology.


Tasting Notes

Pinot Squared is 2/3 Pinot Gris and 1/3 Pinot Noir co-fermented, and left on the skins for 2 months. It spent 12 months aging in used barrel before bottling. A very light-bodied red that defies categorization, it is both delicate and natural in style. Pair with muhammara and feta.

Staff Pick Notes

Jakub Herzán is amongst the renaissance of natural winemaking in East Europe. He has been working his family estate in the Moravian village of Kobyli since 1997. He’s always practiced organic and biodynamic farming and has vinified with minimal intervention. His P2 wine is a brilliant and inventive blend of 66% Pinot Gris and 33% Pinot Noir. Both wines are vinified and aged separately. They see 30 days of skin maceration and are aged in old oak barrels for 1 year. The wines are blended before bottling with no sulfur added. In the glass, the wine appears cloudy with a pale pink/straw color. It has seductive aromas of lychee, strawberries, fruit cocktail, and hibiscus. The palate exhibits flavors of fruit, apple skins, and baking spices. A sense of energy comes from a stony minerality and fresh acidity. Serve with soft sheep's cheese.

Pinot Grigio is an Italian synonym for the French Pinot Gris variety, but many more people have had Pinot Grigio than a Pinot Gris. At its most basic level, the grape produces varietals that are smooth and easy to drink, and perfect with a huge range of dishes that just beg to be paired with a fresh white wine. There is an entire spectrum of Pinot Gris/Grigio, however, the best of them being...
