Just as a dynamic actor can be pigeonholed as a particular character, plenty of captivating grapes are vinified in one style for so long, we never expect to see much else from them. But not all producers are keen to typecast. Around the world, winemakers craft terroir-driven bottlings that demonstrate the full spectrum of their fruit. Ahead, discover three script-flipping selections that reflect varieties in a different way than you may be accustomed to.\r\nMartha Stoumen Wines 2018 Honeymoon\r\nMendocino County\r\nHistorically used for blends and distillates like Cognac, some assume Colombard is neutral or lacks personality. Even vinified solo, it\u2019s noted for basic, albeit crisp, white wines. This blend of 85% Colombard and 15% Chardonnay proves otherwise.\r\n\r\nFounder/winemaker Martha Stoumen selects dry-farmed Colombard grown on deep-rooted vines planted in 1948. She says they give \u201creally amazing depth of flavors,\u201d and likens them to a \u201c blank slate\u201d to which she layers \u201ccolors\u201d of character from prolonged hangtime on the vine and lees contact in the cellar. Some of 2018\u2019s harvest was botrytized, which also layered complex honeyed umami flavor.\r\n\r\n\r\nRogue Vine 2018 Grand Itata Tinto\r\nItata Valley\r\nAmicable and aromatic when partnered, red-fruited Cinsault is generally light-bodied and low in tannins. It\u2019s usually associated with ros\u00e9 blends from the South of France.\r\n\r\nThis varietal bottling from Chile\u2019s Itata Valley offers a distinct contrast. Made with native yeasts and no filtration, it\u2019s smoky, with minerality, striking red berry notes and fresh acidity.\r\n\r\n\u201c[In Itata,] the granite is the soul and energy of the Cinsault grape,\u201d says Winemaker Leo Erazo, who believes the grape\u2019s capabilities are best expressed with low-yielding old vines and a focus on soil.\r\nComando-G 2018 La Bruja de Rozas Sierra de Gredos\r\nVinos de Madrid\r\nWhile Grenache is known for its versatility and red fruit, Spanish Garnacha is often considered a workhorse variety, with a reputation for burly wines anchored by notes of dark fruits.\r\n\r\nFernando Garcia and Dani Landi, founders of Comando-G, aim to pioneer a move in the other direction by leaning on the granite-laced, high-altitude terroir of Sierra de Gredos. Light, elegant, earthy and aromatic, with high acidity, they consider this their \u201cvillage\u201d Garnacha, more akin to Burgundian Pinot Noir.
