Andrea Calek Blonde 2019
Type: WhiteProducer: Andrea CalekCountry: FranceRegion: LanguedocGrape: Chardonnay, ViognierYear: 2019Farming: Organic/ NaturalIf we had a knack for making wine this expressive, we'd abandon post too, just like Andrea Calek did to leave the Czech army. That's a good story, but what's in your glass is better. Honesty and four hectares of vines in Southern Rhône, France. Mostly his estate-grown Chardonnay and Viognier, this white unfiltered a little more serious than most but still seductive and fun. Biodynamic and made without any additions. Pear, apple, apricot bursting in the glass with a gorgeous honeyed minerality topped with a squeeze of orange, lemon zest.
