New Arrivals from Below the Equator

Wines from Chile, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia take center stage this month.

2017 Parceleros Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina

Parceleros is named after the growers or vigneron that handles the vineyards and small blocks that grow this wine is a tribute to them. This wine is made from carefully selected parcels and handcrafted style with attention to detail all season long. This malbec is full of amazing flavors of blackberry, plum, and black cherry with sprinkles of cocoa powder, leather and a sweet tobacco finish from the oak. The juice spends 3 months in neutral French oak barrels

2017 Huentala Wines Sombrero Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina

This wine is jam packed of floral aromas with highlights of violets, lilacs, and freesias. The palate is full of cherries, blackberries, basil, thyme, and walnut. This is one of my more unique Malbecs stylistically that runs dry in the mouth with optimal tannins and well integrated acidity and spends 9 months in oak barrels which gives it a long finish that is persistent and haunting mineral trace.

$19.99 per bottle

 

2017 Abras Torrontes, Salta, Argentina

This wine is modern and typical at the same time with intense notes of jasmine, orange blossom, lime peel, peach and Muscat grape. The roundness of the mouth feel with good volume and fullness while refreshing acidity. The finish brings back all of those amazing floral characteristics that were on the nose along with a great expression of minerality.

$19.99 per bottle

 

2015 Perez Cruz Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Andes, Chile

 This wine is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon with 4% Petit Verdict to add a hint of spice. It spends 14 months in 100% French Oak barrels 50% new and 50% Used. With Fruity aromas, spice, berry, and chocolate character this wine has a medium body with firm but silky tannins

2013 Terranoble CA1 Carmenere Andes, Colchagua, Chile

Grown at the foothills of the Andes in the Colchagua valley this wine is rich with intense aromas of ripe red fruit. The round tannins with lush concentration of fruit on the palate truly reveal the terroir of the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The wine spends 12 months in new French oak.

$23.99 per bottle

 

2013 Terranoble CA2 Carmenere Costa, Colchagua, Chile

The constant breeze of the pacific ocean constantly cools these grapes so there is a slow ripening process; this gives the wine a dark fruit and spice characteristic with a deep intense red color. The aroma gives off an elegant spice and smoke with slight earthy notes from the costal terroir. With great freshness and intense silky well balanced tannins after spending 10 months of oak aging in French and American oak 

$23.99 per bottle

 

2016 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula Victoria, Australia

This wine has great power and structure with a core of lovely rich ripe cherry fruit along with a slight herbaciousness and a hint of a smoky finish from the wood treatment.  This Pinot is hand harvested and 100% destemed and spends 20 days on the skins then is aged in 100% French Oak 25% of which is new and spends 17 months in wood with no fining or filtration. 

 $32.99 per bottle

 

2018 The Darling Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand

This wine screams Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc but in the most gentle way. It has everything you look for in a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with out being overly aggressive or offensive. With wonderful aromas of tropical fruits and a pleasant herbaceous green pepper on the nose, the flavors are followed through on the palate with a crisp citrus finish. The weight of this wine comes from being on its natural lees for as long as possible giving it a good texture and mouth feel and a long crisp acidic finish.   

$19.99 per bottle
