2016 Luis Seabra Indie Xisto

2016 Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Branco (outstanding)

2016 Aphros Vino Verde Phaunus Pet Nat

2014 Dirty & Rowdy Antle Vineyard Skin Fermented Melon

2019 Pearl Morisette Primesautier (a little too weird for me.  like earl grey and washed rind cheese when first opened)

2017 Big Head Wines Big Red Select

2018 Leaning Post Pinot Noir the Fifty.

2004 Two Hands Bella's Garden Shiraz

Some Australian shiraz starts out as alcoholic fruit-bomb but then settles down after 15-20 years into something quite enjoyable.  That does not appear to be the trajectory for this wine. If anyone wants to relieve me of the Lily's Garden and Run Rig that are left in my cellar, I'm available for transaction.

I recall buying the 2005 (if I'm not mistaken)...very high ratings.  Tasted like crushed grapes, is in they forgot the winemaking altogether.  Maybe purple jesus in a bottle.  And I liked 2005 Aussie Shiraz back then.  This is not wine.

2017 Koncho & Co. Rkatsiteli Qveri - this was really good.  almond paste, white flowers and honey, but dry as a bone.  Will be seeking out more.

2018 Meinklang Morgen - A rose made from Sankt Laurent, i think my first experience with this grape.  Tasted like a good dry hopped sour.  Not great for a wine though.

2017 Iuli Umberta - Big Menh.  Generic barbera.  Had hoped for more.
