The Office Lush's Top 6 Picks (that you can't afford to miss!) The Office Lush's Top 6 Picks (that you can't afford to miss!)

 

 

I hear the word "cult" and my thoughts immediately fly to crazy people with even crazier followers – where the hell do all these kooks come from? I'm not trying to be controversial here people, but  America is a pretty common answer. It comes as a massive surprise then that I'm thinking of forming a new cult (minus evangelical brainwashing and the standard mass suicide unhappy ending). I'm not crazy, and neither is my suggested cult leader. He is winemaker Eduard Pié Palomar.
Like any good head-of-a-sect, Eduard embodies incredible energy and charisma, talent and passion, with a hefty dose of oddball thrown in for good measure. Like his personality, Eduard's winemaking techniques are out there. In the Baix Penedès along Spain's Catalan coast, he uses local varieties from single vineyards, fermenting all his wines with native yeasts in terracotta amphorae. Some amphorae are sunk in the ground between vineyard rows, where they spend the winter under rain, snow and grazing sheep. "It's a romantic concept," says the fresh-faced 32-year-old winemaker, who calls his vineyard-made wines "liquid terroir." Perhaps I should revisit my "he's not crazy" stance.

Over our Friday tasters, Boss Man read me one of the many incredible reviews for the winemaker: "(This is) the amazing thing about Pié Palomar: in these raw circumstances he makes limpid, pristine wines with none of the oxidation, funk, murk or abundance of volatile acidity you might expect." Took the words right out of my mouth. For those of you who require slightly less high-brow feedback, I would also say this: these wines are damn fine. So very, very good that I'd risk social ostracism to join a cult (but how good – a cult dedicated to wine worship!) Find out what you've been missing.

The Sicus Sixer is $199 (RRP $340) including delivery.

2016 Amphora 
Xarel-lo

 

Boss Man (also known as the Talent Scout) caught wind of Eduard's emerging cult status several years ago and pursued him immediately. Eduard was thrilled by the Australian flirtation, and their ensuing bromance (conducted in hilarious Spanglish) is quite lovely – Eduard signs off all his correspondence with "big hugs!" God bless the Euros, they're so in touch with their emotions.

2016 Cartoixa Mari Amphora Xarel-lo Vermell Rosé

 A true wine fanatic, Eduard completed studies in oenology and viticulture, then trained as a sommelier while working with reputable local producers to gain quality hands-on experience. Ten points for being thorough. He committed to his own project full-time in 2011 at the age of 25, the first in a long line of farmers to pursue an alternate path. Good call, Ed.

2016 Cartoixa Amphora Brisat 

 Eduard works alone in a rugged, isolated environment, and oversees every aspect of his winemaking with obsessive-compulsive detail. He says he wants his wines "to be inspired and informed by their environment to the maximum extent, evolving in the same earth in which the vines pass their lives, accompanied by the same birdsong". Oh my. A real live Willy Wonka.

2016 Garrut Amphora Monastrell

If you're forging new paths and challenging old methods, you need to be prepared for disappointment – sometimes experiments don't work out. About 10% of Eduard's wine never makes it to bottle. With his rejected batches, he sometimes makes vinegar. The rest he recycles an old-fashioned way: "I give it to my grandfather," he says. "He drinks everything."

2016 Amphora Malvasia

We are very precious in the office and couldn't possibly drink instant coffee. We buy only the very best freshly roasted beans from a supplier who believes as much in terroir as any winemaker. Even better, our supplier trades in contra – we get our 5kg of coffee every month and they take wine in exchange. They have chosen Sicus as part of their deal every month for two years straight.

2015 Amphora Sumoll

The owl – wise, thoughtful and ever observant, much like Eduard himself – presides over every one of his bottles. These stylish vessels grace the tables of many a chic Barcelona bistro, as well as multi-hatted restaurants much closer to home. Bring a slice of Michelin-starred indulgence to your dining table, minus the hefty price tag and the waiter with attitude.
