The Wine: Show Pony Rose' 2019
Wild strawberry - sherbet - jalapeño margarita. White cabernet, direct pressed pinot grigio with just enough sangiovese to blush its cheeks. On the nose, herbaceous and musky leading to some kinda subtle boiled lolly vibe. Acid is a driver here, minerality for days. That jalepeño vibe at the end makes me wanna smash eight or nine fish tacos. Wildy refreshing. This one screams for some sunshine, some friends and some tumblers. Salud! - Mark and Alicia, wine makers.

The poster-children for packing up shop and moving to the country, Mark and Alicia have been at this game for a while now, and it is definitely showing. They are very much a part of a general maturing of the natural wine community, which sees a lot more patience for holding back releases, letting things settle in bottle and it is paying off.
