Bodegas Eguren Viura La Tierra de Castilla Spain (suggested retail $9.99) Refreshing white wine "Reinares" made from Viura grapes grown in the vineyards of the region of La Tierra de Castilla. Harvested grapes undergo a 20-day fermentation at a controlled temperature followed by stabilization in stainless steel tanks. This wine is pale and clean, with fine, herbaceous aromas and hints of lemon and a pleasant fullness and lusciousness. It is great with tapas, stuffed mushroom caps, grilled peppers or grilled fish.
Las Perdices Viognier, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $13.99) This is a great South American interpretation of the premier white varietal of the Rhone region in France. It is 100% Viognier from Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo and is greenish-yellow color with floral aromas of peach and apricot. On the palate it is complex and unctuous, with a long finish that continues the floral notes. It is perfect to accompany spicy dishes, fish, and Asian food, especially sushi.
Conde de Alicante Red, Alicante Spain (suggested retail $8.99) Wine Enthusiast “Best Buy” and #52 in their “100 Best Values of 2015” This dry red blend consists of 60% Monastrell and 40% Tempranillo. Wine Enthusiast Magazine 11/1/2015, 87 Points: “Warm red-berry aromas are simple and fresh, a hallmark of a good Alicante wine. This is a touch sharp and drawing on the palate, with cherry, plum and berry flavors. Crisp and focused on the finish, this ranks as an ideal everyday quaffer.”
Domaine des Karantes “Bergerie” Red Blend, Languedoc France (suggested retail $11.99) This red blend from the south of France contains the classic grapes of the region; Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. After careful harvesting and sorting the Bergerie Rouge is fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshnes and natural fruit character of the wine. It recently received a regional trophy at the Decanter Wine Awards. Bergerie Rouge has a cherry red color, red fruit, strawberry and cherry aromas with notes of spice and vanilla. Well balanced and round, this wine is soft and fruity; a friendly and enjoyable wine.
Bodegas Carelli “34˚” Malbec, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $9.99) 34° is a family produced easy drinking wine range from Mendoza. The family have been making wines for 3 generations in Mendoza. The flagship wine for Carelli, this Malbec does not disappoint. Great plum and cranberry perfume with some good spice and leafy secondary character. Soft but plentiful tannins work well with the acidity and depth of fruit flavor on the palate, making the wine very drinkable, with or without food.
Chronic Cellars “Suite Petite”, California (suggested retail $16.99) This is not a typical Petite Sirah, nor are any of the Chronic Cellars wines typical. This wine is 87% Petite Sirah and 13% Syrah from Paso Robles. This is a robust wine that delivers without any of the dry astringency that usually accompanies wines of this particular blend grown in this particular AVA. It has a uniqueness that should inspire a lot of other winemakers to walk out on that proverbial limb and take a risk. With just a trace of residual sugar, the wine becomes more accessible to a lot more consumers, hey that might not be every ones cup of tea or in this case cup of wine but the appeal to a broader audience is undeniable.
