*Eder 2019 Tinto, Rioja Alavesa, Spain – (95 % Tempranillo and 5% Viara) Delicate aromas of cherries and black fruits with notes of walnuts and spices on the palate. Well balanced with a punch of tannins on the finish. This versatile wine is particularly well suited for grilled red meats.
* Boucabeille 2019 Cotes du Roussillon, Languedoc-Roussillon, Fr.-  From organic farmer Jean Boucabeille the “les Terrasses” comes from the terraced hillside vineyards where the vines are grown. A 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Carignan blend it’s a gutsy wine that is all fruit and texture with herbs and garrigue, delicate blueberry and red fruits wrapped in a finish of refined, determined tannins.
Barnard Griffin 2018 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, Washington State - Classic Washington crisp, refreshing Chardonnay with citrus and apple notes and subtle, discreet oak and spice undertones medium to fuller bodied it finishes with notes of flint and good minerality.
Hillinger 2019 Pinot Gris, Burgenland, Austria – 100% Pinot Gris, known as Grauburgunder in Austria, this is a perfect July picnic wine. From certified organic vineyards with aromas of exotic fruits and fresh nuts, all of which is pleasantly reflected in the mouth along with lemon/lime citrus and green apple fruit on a long crispy finish.
Domaine de la Chesneraie 2019 Touraine Rouge, Loire, France – [60% Côt (Malbec) & 40% Cabernet Franc] Grown on silex and clay soils this appealing red has aromas of smoky herbs, ripe red fruits and crushed white pepper. There is some complexity and structure on the palate and it finishes with mouthwatering minerality and refined tannins. Great with hamburgers or ribs.
Tournon 2017 Shiraz “Mathilda,” Victoria, Australia- “Say what you will about Michel Chapoutier, he’s certainly brought an Old World style to his Australian ventures. The 2017 Mathilda Shiraz is dark and earthy, with hints of roasted meat, black olive and asphalt on the nose. Yet on the palate, there’s a New World sense of blueberry and blackberry fruit that’s ripe without being sweet yet dry and savory on the softly dusty finish. At the recommended retail of $16, it’s a solid value.” (WA 1/19)
