The Arrival of Summer Wines

David
Posted by David on Apr 15, 2014

Summer is so close I can almost taste it and by taste it, I mean the glorious flavors of strawberry, bing cherry and minerality of Rose. Our first delivery of Bieler Rose is arriving right now, which means warm summer weather is right around the corner. Following on the heels of the 2013 Bieler Rose from Provence are some new additions from other corners of the globe. We are adding the Zios Albarino and Skouras Moscofilero to our summer lineup.

Bieler Rose

RoseThe Bieler Rose is a classic example of Provence style Rose, clean fruit flavors, streamlined minerality and bone dry. Paired with salad Nicoise, grilled shrimp and cheese or left on its own, it is a fantastic way to enjoy a warm summer evening.

Zios Albarino

The Zios Albarino from the Rias Biaxes region of Northern Spain is great pairing for Spanish food and seafood. There is this underlying saline note as a result of being so close to the ocean that reinforces the seafood pairing. With notes of green apple and lemon, the lees aging adds weight and body to this lush wine.

Skouras Moscofilero

whitewineThe Skouras Moscofilero from Peloponnese, Greece is an expressive white wine made from 100% Moscofilero, a native Greecian grape typically grown at high altitudes. With notes of orange blossom, white flowers and honeysuckle, there is a bright acidity that makes this a great food wine or a refreshing glass by itself.

Stop by The Chopping Block to grab a bottle (or two) for that nice evening that's just around the corner.

What's your favorite warm weather wine?
