MEN 'S FOLIO Singapore|July 2020
Upon the announcement of the Circuit Breaker, the first goods to get wiped out at supermarket shelves were toilet paper and preserved food. Oddly in the recent weeks, ingredients like pasta, tomato sauce and anything atypical to Singaporeans’ diets were next. While they pointed to a general hankering for cuisines that are usually eaten in restaurants, it also hints at another deep-seated itch — what does one purchase when the allure of online shopping for gizmos and garments no longer bear any appeal? Several establishments have levelled up their delivery options to feed these needs. Some will introduce one to exotics (the best butter in the world or natural wines) and some will deliver an alcoholic fun pack that happens to make him the best dressed on Zoom too.
THE WINE BAR DELIVERING CLOSE TO 100 DIFFERENT NATURAL WINES
To put it simply, natural wines are made from grapes that have been organically and sustainably farmed and produced without sulphates. What one is going to get from each bottle is a fresh and brighter flavour without the heaviness of ordinary wines — the latter causes a hangover if one imbibes too much. When considering which bottle to get from RVLT’s selection of 100 bottles, the three most popular are a juicy white bottle of Kindeli “Blanco” Sauvignon Blanc-Chardonnay, a bottle of red Frederic Brouca “Champs Pentus” that has a juicy velvety mouthfeel and the deep, intense Roc des Anges “Segna de Cor”. Founders Alvin and Ian are also available to recommend other options suited to one’s taste. One would be remise too to think that the descriptive word “funky” to describe wines is a bad thing for once as it alludes to it defying expectations.
