Go Au Natural with these beautiful Natural Wines!
Natural wine is both an ancient old trend and a winemaker’s movement! There is not one definition of natural wine, although the effort is to present wine in it’s purest form -made from unadulterated fermented grape juice and nothing else. It can be farmed organically in a mission to produce “living wine” without pesticides or additives. Here are the Natural Bottles you can purchase right now at Bottles by Sickles.

2018 | Rhône Valley, Fr | 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 10% Cinsault
Clear pale pink in color with a fine nose of peach, raspberries, red currants and pomelo. Lively and full on the palate with aromas of fresh red berries. Refreshing and expressive with a clean finish.
Viñedos del Jorco, Cebreros Las Cabañuelas
2018 | Madrid, Sp | 100% Garnacha
This bottling fis composed entirely from bushtrained Garnacha vines planted on granite in the Sierra de Gredos Mountains. The wine offers up a classic nose of raspberries, blood orange, pepper, garrigue, stony soil tones and a topnote of wild fennel. On the palate, the wine is bright, full-bodied and transparent in personality, with a good core of fruit, tangy acids, moderate tannins and a long, complex and well-balanced finish. This is gently chewy today, but quite approachable. It will be even better with a few years’ worth of bottle age. 2020-2035+.

There is a touch of natural wine funk in the background that adds interest. The finish is medium in length. 12% abv. Enjoy it with Mediterranean fare.
