WINE CLUB March 2017 Selections

“The first rule of WINE CLUB is… ALWAYS talk about WINE CLUB!”
The Wine buyers (Andrew and Dale) pick two wines each month for you that we love, and you will too. One white (or rose, or bubbly) and one red. The total value of wines will exceed $40 (usually between $45 and $50) and the longer you sign up for, the better the deal! (see below for pricing and perks)

Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina Rubentis, Spain 2016
Txakolina, (pronounced Chacolina) or Txakoli is a style of wine from the Basque area of Spain, that’s made from grapes native to the region. 50% Hondarribi Beltza (red) and 50% Hondarribi Zuri (white) the white and red grapes are worked together, and go through a cold maceration for about 12 hours, (during which the wine gets its color from the red grape skins) then fermented in stainless steel for 20 days. The resulting wine is fresh and clean with bright red fruit flavors, a super crisp acidity, a bit of minerality and a touch of salinity. It’ll remind you of Vinho-Verde. Traditionally the wine is served in a large tumbler and poured from a height to enhance the slight effervescence. (although it’s great in a wine glass too!) In Basque, Txakoli is commonly served with “pintxos”, tapas-like appetizers served on a spike, a toothpick or skewer, usually a mix of seafood, sliced meats, cheese, breads, peppers, olives… This wine will pair well with almost anything, do an image search for “pintxos” and you’ll get the idea! (you’ll also be hungry!)

Feudo Maccari, Saia, Sicily 2013
Nero D’ Avola from Sicily. We had the 2012 as part of seminar last year, it was one of our favorite wines that night, we decided to revisit Saia for WINE CLUB. The current vintage is 2013 and it’s yummy. Blackberry on the nose dark cherry on the pallet, big without being bulky or dense, clean, pretty, and complex, while still a big full flavored wine. The tannins are substantive, but not blocky. Drinks great now, should be amazing in a couple of years, and should hold up well for 8 or 10 if you want to sit on a bottle. Pair with grilled steak, venison, wild boar, stews, roasts, blue cheese, charcuterie
