Aussie

Sunday Sippers

March 24th,

11-5pm

This Sunday we are headed down under to sample a couple of new arrivals in the shop, starting with a Viognier and ending up with a Shiraz-heavy blend.

2018 Yalumba The Y Series $11

Viognier

South Austrailia

Cornsilk yellow in color with green hues. Aromas of white flowers and honeysuckle dominate the nose, with ginger and five spice to finish. The white flowers and ginger lead into a creamy mid palate with a silky textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees aging give the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate.

2015 Pikes Los Compañeros $15

80% Shiraz, 20% Temperanillo

Clare Valley Austrailia

Clear and deep ruby in appearance, Los Companeros greets the nose with seductive blueberry fruit framed by suggestions of chocolate, mint, earth, and spice. On the palate, this wine is rich and dense yet approachable. The concentrated dark fruit and chocolate are tempered nicely by fine, silky tannins and balanced acidity. On the finish, the wine shows harmony among its structural components and suggests a comfortable cellaring period of three to five years.

Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday, we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.

We are convenitnely located at 1127 34th Avenue (at Union). For more information:

South African Wine Tasting -- 11-5pm

This Sunday we are once again headed to the Southern Hemisphere to sample a couple of new arrivals from South Afria starting with a Chennin Blanc and ending up with a Shiraz-heavy blend. Lubanzi was created to do good and have fun doing it, they recycle 50% of their year-end profits with the Pebbles Project, an organization that works to improve the lives of those who labor on South Africa's wine farms.

2017 Lubanzi Chenin Blanc $15

100% Chenin Blanc

The nose brings tropical and stone fruits first, eliciting thoughts of tangerine and lychee. The palate is round and fleshy, purshing forward lychee again, along with white peach, apricot and green apple, all carried by a touch of elevated acidity. There is brightness and a hint of freshly baked bread throughout.

2016 Lubanzi Blend $15

58% Shiraz, 30% Cinsault, 3% Mourvédre, 3% Grenache

The wine is a lush, dark ruby color. The nose suggests equal parts fruit, savoury, and spice, eliciting thoughts of plum, liquorice and a touch of ground coffee. The palate shows dark fruits at first, before giving way to lighter red fruits, such as strawberry and raspberry. Finishes with a touch of spice and raw earth. Slight tannins, countered by an elevated acidity.

Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday, we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.
