Crisp and fresh aromas with pear and light white floral notes. Mouth-watering acidity with pleasing minerality and beautiful balance. Enjoyable. -Tasted by Margaret Kim, Marquis Wine Cellars Wine: Chenin Blanc Producer: Leo Steen Vintage: 2012 Country: USA Region: California Appellation: Sonoma Price: $32.90 (inc tax) Buy here!
Fascinating complex wine! Traditionally made, bone dry Muscat from certified organic and dry-farmed grapes. Take your time and savour, allowing the aromas and flavours to unwind in the glass. Gloriously floral nose with mandarin oranges, pineapple and the sweet pepperiness of fresh basil. Taste is minerally and citrus with great depth and texture – 6 months spent on skins will do that. Fermented and aged in large clay amphoras with minimal intervention. A singular wine that deserves attention. –Tasted by Christopher C., Marquis Wine Cellars Name: Viejas Tinajas Muscat Producer: De Martino Vintage: 2013 Country: Chile Region: Itata Valley View this wine on Marquis-Wines.com here
Vibrant acidity and black fruit combined with spice, leather and mineral accents. This wine has layers of complexity, long length and a mouthwatering finish. Drink now or tuck it away for 8-10 years. -Renny P., Marquis Wine Cellars Name: Il Carnasciale Toscana Producer: Podere Il Carnasciale Vintage: 2010 Country: Italy Region: Tuscany Appellation: Toscana IGT View this wine on Marquis-Wines.com
A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Carignan and 5% Mourvèdre. The Grenache vines that are used for this wine are over 50 years of age and have been bio-dyanmically farmed for many years now. Dark in colour, with savoury, spicy flavours. This wine is a must try and can be drank now but it will easily age for the next five years. -Chrystala G, Marquis Wine Cellars Name: Saint Damien Cotes du Rhone Vielles Vignes Producer: Saint-Damien Vintage: 2013 Country: France Region: Côtes du Rhône Appellation: Gigondas View this wine on Marquis-Wines.com here!
