A Curious Coupling … That Works

‘Natural’ wine: fabulous or faddish scam?

So when I met Michael Cody, co-founder of Sedimentary Wines, a Vancouver-based importer of high-end natural wines, I challenged him to serve me a “real” wine (as he calls them) that I would enjoy as much as that initial Jura. That is how we arrived at Hawksworth Restaurant, where the orange Radikon is starting to grow on me as its tannins melt into fatty bites of prosciutto.

“You need to have food with these wines,” says Mr. Threlfall, who fell for natural wines at Terroirs Wine Bar in London. “It helps all that tannin and acidity make sense.”
