Fresh & Fruity

Featured Wines:

2018 Yalumba “Y Series” Unwooded Chardonnay – Australia; $9.99

I have always been a fan of the white wines that Yalumba produces. This part of Southern Australia is very hot and tends to produce wines with little acid, but like their Viognier they produce this little unoaked Chardonnay is crisp and refreshing. A big portion of the Yalumba property is dedicated to native wildlife rehabilitation. This label depicts the Cape Barren Goose an endangered species in the area. Through this inspiration the winery focuses on sustainability and minimal intervention wine making, which is unique due to how large they are. This wine is produced through a natural (“wild” yeast) fermentation and truly displays the qualities of the region. Surprising minerality with grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors. - $1.00 Sample

2018 Campuget Costieres de Nimes Rose – Rhone Valley, France; $10.99

The Chateau de Campuget dates back to 1640, but has been owned by the Dalle family since 1941.This rose is made from classic Rhone varietals, but the region being in the warmer southern part of the Rhone leads to a little more round fruit flavors than some of the very light styles common throughout France. Lots of minerality and refreshing acidity along with juicy raspberry and strawberry flavors. - $1.00 Sample

2015 Brassfield Eruption Red Blend – Lake County, California; $18.99

Started in 1973 as a cattle ranch and wildlife preserve by Jerry Brassfield in the High Valley region of Lake County in northern California. The estate has grown to over 2700 acres which they started planting with vines in 2001. This blend comes from their Volcano Ridge Vineyard which is unique volcanic rock accumulated from the eruptions of nearby Round Mountain Volcano. Mainly Malbec with support from Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Mourvedre. Brimming with rich blackberry, raspberry and plum notes. Ripe fruit reminiscent of blueberry pie is balanced by an underpinning of baking spices. Very rich, but smooth full tannins. - $1.50 Sample

2016 True Grit Petite Sirah – Mendocino, California; $15.99

The True Grit series is produced by the Parducci family who have been making wine in Mendocino since 1932. The 2016 vintage was great for the Petite and received 90 points and a Best Buy award from Wine Enthusiast. This bad boy is BIG! All estate grown with huge gripping tannins. Aromas of ripe fruit, white pepper and vanilla, followed by an intense rush of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and caramel flavors. - $1.50 Sample
