The Warrior Crate, La Sorga


La Sorga: Fier Heretique ‘18

Fier Heretique: Proud Heretic
Complex, heady, gastronomic, fruity, medium bodied…the list goes on. Given the name, brace for a rose that defies preconception from established dogma- if you’re new to natural wine then your adventure starts now. If you’re partial to a delicate provencal rose you need to turn the hell around & scurry away, stat. Grown from limestone & clay the red grapes are directly pressed & the white grapes are macerated in the resulting juice, as whole bunches for 25 days. After a year of ageing in concrete I picture this wild card wine being wrestled into submission for bottling.
Chill down & open 20 minutes before serving…then kick back & enjoy the ride!

La Sorga: Grand Pestilence ‘17

Antony is a bonafide point of reference for natty lovers the world over: A legendary negociant buying grapes from exceptional organic/biodynamic terroir from over 30 vineyards around the Languedoc. Grown on schist this glorious lightish red blend is made by macerating whole bunches of Carignan for 60 days with partially de-stemmed Grenache. Notes of white pepper, rose & peony lend a lush herbal freshness to balance an underlying sour cherry, raspberry fruit-fest. Buzzy & bright, this ode to Grenache (note the 3 varieties) is hella fun despite the serious name. Get involved in the smashfest, aged for a year in concrete.

Varietal: 90% Carignan, field blend of Grenache Noir, Blanc & Gris
Faugeres, Languedoc
Organic, skin contact, unfiltered, vegan

La Sorga: Espirit Atilla ‘16

Whole bunch maceration for 90 days delivers a deep crunchy body with a dark fruity vibe. The vines vary in age with the oldest Syrah, at 35 years, thrusting a deep thick root into the earth to reach the mineral goodness of the iron rich clay & limestone. Don’t believe the rumor of natty wines being un-ageable…this beast could hit the cellar for 20 years & come out shining. The violet aromas will pair beautifully with lamb and the year spent ageing in concrete & amphorae has broadened the palate like a dream. Embodying the spirit of a true leader, this vibrant powerhouse will put hairs on your chest & evolve you into the courageous warrior you were born to be. Snowflakes beware.

Varietal: 60% Syrah, 40% field blend of Carignan, Merlot, Alicante Bouschet
