Wine of the Week
CHATEAU MONTAUD COTES DE PROVENCE ROSE', FRANCE. A blend of 40% Cinsault, 50 Grenache, 5 Syrah, 5 Tibouren (a little known, but highly regarded wine grape, which imparts an earthy, floral aroma). One of our most popular rose' wines in the Provence style: fresh, light, dry, with hints of fruit: melons, citrus, and strawberries.
MUGA ROSE' (ROSADO), SPAIN. A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Viura (a little known white wine grape, used to introduce a slight nutty flavor). This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of citrus, green apples, and apricot. Unlike 99.9% of rose' wines worldwide, Muga Rose' spends a brief period of time in used* oak barrels.
*USED as opposed to new oak barrels which would be too interactive, and introduce characteristics (heaviness, tastes of butter and vanilla, and texture) not desired in a rose'.
