WINES THIS WEEK
Perfect Weekend Wines + Returning Favorites!
ES - Niel Red $13.99
Charred, blackened aromas of mint, licorice and burnt tire overshadow the wine's black-fruit components. This feels thick and dense, with chewy weight. Medicinal, herbal flavors of black fruits are peppery and a bit green, while mint and cough drop notes control the finish of this 85% Garnacha Tintorera and 15% Monastrell blend.
IT - Lu Rappaio Primitivo $18.99
In Apulian dialect means "the bunch." From Primitivo grapes, it is deep intense ruby red in color. This lovely wine smells of blackberries and strawberry jam, rosemary, violet, and humus. Smooth in the mouth complex, full bodied and pleasant. First courses with meat or tomato sauces, polenta and grilled meats.
Returning Old Friends
NZ - Little Sheep Sauvignon Blanc $14.99
Lively and fresh aromas of citrus and cut grass jump from the glass tantalizing your taste buds. The palate is clean and crisp with high toned acidity that is balanced by citrus fruit and cantaloupe melon. Great with shellfish, vegetarian dishes, and goat cheese.
AU - Frisk Riesling $12.99
Victoria, Australia- It's a mouth-revving Riesling with a bite that sings with mountain-stream purity, bold and unapologetic. Notes of lemon sorbet, and white lilies. Pairs well with anything sweet or spicy.
More off dry than sweet, this Riesling is called a needle wine for it's slight "prickly" effervescence.
