1. 2015 Joao Portugal Ramon Alvarinho (Vinho Verde, Portugal) – Don’t get this confused with a simple Vinho Verde. Yes, it’s from the same region, but this of a completely different breed! 100% Alvarinho from a single vineyard planted on rocky/granitic soils and seeing a touch of French oak, this is rich, exotic, spicy and creamy white wine. I know that description sounds like Chardonnay, but it’s not like that either. Come taste it!
2. 2016 Ostatu Rosado (Rioja, Spain) – This is a perennial customer and staff favorite from one of our favorite Rioja producers. The 2016 is again delicious! A blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Garnacha from some of the estate’s oldest and highest elevation vineyards, it is fermented in stainless steel and bottled soon after. Tart, crisp and laced with lime, white cherry, strawberry and floral notes, this is super refreshing and ideally served with a nice chill.
3. 2011 Vina Bujanda Rioja Reserva (Rioja, Spain) – 100% Tempranillo from 30 year old vines planted in the Alta and Alavesa zones of Rioja. The wine sees 20 months of oak aging (French and American oak) and 20 months of bottle aging before release. The result is a savory and complex red that exhibits notes of spiced blueberries, leather, mocha, and cacao.
