We have some GREAT new wines to showcase today for our weekly wine tasting, come in and shelter yourself from the wind !
-Chiroulet "La Cote d'Heux"- Gros Mansang- France
A great new find from Gascogne! The grape varietal here is "Gros Manseng", showing a lovely display of Apricot, Quince, with Spicy floral notes! Great wine, great price, and a fun varietal to become familiar with!
- Menti "Monte del Cuca"- Garganega- Italy
This is a true, classic 'orange' wine. Garganega grapes are pressed and allowed to ferment along with the grape skins, resulting in a fuller body, saturated, and exciting wine. Garganega is usually the grape associated with Soave production, but this bottle offers a bold and interesting traditional style that is a thrill to explore !
- Suriol "Sang de Drac"- 100% Tempranillo- Spain
This wine was unavailable for a long time, but its finally back, and we are very happy to have it! The Suriol house makes a number of fantastic wines from the Catalan region in Spain, including a knockout Cava.
- Haute Cot(e) de Fruit- 100% Malbec- France
This Malbec comes from Cahors, a region traditionally known for excellent Malbec, and this bottle lives up to the reputation. This is a non-fined, non-filtered expression of organic agriculture, going back to traditional wine manufacturing!
