Post Mistress Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Wine
A woman of unimpeachable rectitude, the Postmistress is trusted to preserve the town’s mail affairs. Her nimble fingers sort carefully wrapped parcels, letters from distant places and a single postcard, written in a familiar hand. Whilst eager young men queue daily for her attention, for the Postmistress there is only one man who always delivers.
Campuget Rose’s color an intense peony pink. Its bouquet is very aromatic, exhaling scents of small red fruits such as raspberries or blackcurrants. In the mouth there is a perfect balance between vivacity and mellowness. The final taste is very long, leaving a delicate impression of fruitiness.
70% Syrah, 30% Grenache
Castle Rock Pinot Noir Cuvee
Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir is produced from grapes grown in a carefully selected group of California vineyards, at which the climate and soil conditions provide excellent growing conditions for this Burgundian varietal. The wine is elegant and medium-bodied, offering aromas of cherry, tea and herbal spice. On the palate it is smooth with a silky texture and mild tannins, giving flavors of black cherry, plum and spice, and finishing long and harmoniously, This versatile food wine pairs well with lamb, veal, salmon and light pasta dishes.
Two Mountain Merlot
(Columbia Valley, Washington)
Yep, this is Merlot the way it should be, in our not so humble opinion. Getting you started with an interesting blend of blackberry and coffee on the nose. On the palate the wine hints of rich toasted barrel, bright vibrant Bing cherry, and the finishing with a wonderful taste of really ripe red fruits, a hint of toffee, and soft tannins. You’ve got a winner!
Cono Sur Bicycle Cabernet Sauvignon
(Central Valley, Chile)
Deep, impressive ruby-red colour, which suggests concentrated grapes harvested at the right moment. Its nose is governed by pleasant notes of plum, raspberry and sweet spices, while in this wine’s mouth chocolate and subtle hints of vanilla can be appreciated. A very structured, balanced, long and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine is a great option to accompany burgers, grilled meats and chorizo. It also goes great with strong cheeses, lamb, hearty stews and pasta, beef – strong, marinated or barbequed – poultry, and highly seasoned sauces.
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Carmenere, 3% Syrah, 2% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 1% Carignan, 1% Alicante Bouchet
This is the special offer from earlier this week. We’re opening it up to taste!
A full case only costs $81.50 for members. I recommend getting a case to have wine on hand for parties and every day dinner time! The savings is at least $50 off the normal retail price by the case!
Pancho’s Sangria, well known throughout Spain, is made from a secret family recipe for a ‘homemade’ style of Sangria. Pancho’s past is a mystery – was he an infamous Mexican General? Was she a world-famous airplane stunt pilot? Was he a creation of Hollywood, the ‘sidekick’ to a celluloid cowboy of the Old West? Was he an acclaimed Spanish winemaker hiding his love of Sangria behind an innocuous nickname? No matter what Pancho’s roots, we’re just glad he is making his Sangria. This wine works well with nothing more than some ice and a fruit garnish.
Pancho Sangria is bright red, with violet highlights. In the nose, there is an explosion of red fruit aromas, with some citrus and a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, the red fruit and citrus continues, with the cinnamon enhanced by a bracingly fresh mouth feel and finish.
This Sangria should be served well-chilled as an aperitif (over ice with sliced fresh fruit) or with Spanish, Mexican or spicy foods.
