Worth Another Clap

Earlier this week, this bottle revisited the dinner table. Drinkers in need of robust obviousness can stop right here - this is not for you. For the rest of us, the translucent color alone is enchanting, and the organic farming practices used in the vineyard mean that you'll feel good while/after drinking it. This wine was reviewed last summer and merits another clap:

2021 Via Revolucionaria Criolla Grande Uco Valley $15 
Clocking in at just 11.5% and made from the criolla grande grape (referred to as pais across the border in Chile,) my notes are sparse simply because the wine disappeared so fast. It's a brilliantly-flavored, bright wine that borders on a rosé in terms of color, but the tension and grip thanks to its acidity makes it magically taut and food friendly. Sourced from a single vineyard at 3,450 feet in alluvial, rocky soils and fermented with native yeasts before being aged for 5 short months in concrete. Amazing, especially at this price. 93 points (Purchased)
