New England Wine & Spirits

Saturday June 16

1:00 to 4:00

 

1.  Torres Verdeo, Verdejo, Rueda Spain             $11.99          

Sale 2 for $20.00

Rueda is the home of Verdejo, and although relatively new, Verdejo is now the largest selling white wine in Spain. Intense and fragrant, it offers clean floral notes with a slight hint of ripe quince and pear along with a silky, smooth texture. Verdeo pairs well with seafood, fresh salads and spicy food, but is also great on its own.

 

2.  Jean Paul Thibert, Macon Fuisse                      $17.99                      

Sale $14.99

Jean Paul Thibert’s winery and vineyards are located in Fuisse in the Macon region famous for Pouilly

Fuisse.  Another white Burgundy is produced from the Chardonnay grapes in Fuisse and that is Macon

Fuisse, which doesn’t have the complexity of Fuisse, but also doesn’t have the higher price.  Aromas and flavors feature rich, ripe, pear, apple, and peach fruit with accents of toasted hazelnut and grilled pineapple.  Full and fleshy enough to give almost any Pouilly-Fuisse a run for its money, but crisp and minerally on the mouthwatering finish.

 

3.  St. Francis Chardonnay, Sonoma                     $16.99                        

Sale $13.99

St. Francis has been making fine Sonoma county wines for over 30 years. Estate-grown Chardonnay grapes from Sonoma Valley are blended with carefully selected fruit from Carneros, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley to produce this wine.  Lemon curd, guava, honeysuckle, and plenty of citrus notes all flow to a pretty, seamless, elegant white that shines from its balance and purity.

 

4.  Ogier Cotes du Rhone Blanc                                $16.99                     

Sale $13.99

Typical of white Cotes du Rhone, this wine is a blend of several white grapes including Grenache Blanc,

Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.  The wine opens with floral aromas with peach and figs, the mouth is clean and bright, with ripe nectarine, hints of candied lemon, and a savory aromatic finish.

 

5.  Torres La Casta Rose                                              $11.99          

Sale 2 for $20.00

A blend of Garnacha and Carinena produces an elegant cherry color with fine floral aroma reminiscent of flowers such as mimosa and iris, complemented by fruity hints  of plums, and cherries. Its smooth, rich palate and delicate aromas are prolonged in the finish.  The perfect rose for summer parties and cook-outs.

 

6.  Maison Foucher Chinon, Loire Valley            $18.99                      

Sale $14.99

The climate of the Loire Valley is too cold for most red grapes, but Cabernet Franc seems

to find a perfect home here.  Chinon is 100% Cabernet Franc and produces a wine with a

combination of red and black cherries with spice and a light smokiness.  Perfect summer wine

if you give it a slight chill.

 

7.  Mossback Pinot Noir, Russian River               $19.99                      

Sale $16.99

Mossback Pinot Noir is a blend of Russian River Valley fruit sourced from growers that winemaker Dan Cederquist has worked with for decades. This Pinot Noir has bright flavors of cranberry and raspberry combines with barrel spice and a little leather. It is a seductive wine, medium bodied with a long finish.
