Boy, do we have a spectacular tasting lined up for you this Saturday.

Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio $15.49
The mixed limestone and clay loam of the Penon Vineyard ensure the harmonious aroma of the wine. As its taste is characterized by a well-balanced acidity and a persisting full flavour, this wine can be perfectly combined with light starters and dishes with fish or white meat.

Elio Perrone Bigaro $18.99
Elio Perrone Bigaro is a blend of Moscato and Brachetto. A translucent ruby in color, the Brachetto not only gives the wine its beautiful color, but it shifts the flavors from tropical fruits in the direction of red fruits.

Finca Sandoval Signo Bobal $21.99
This delicious wine is made with the most typically native Manchuela variety, from an old vineyard planted in 1939, and a small proportion (around 10%) of Syrah. It has a gorgeous bouquet of dark cherries, boysenberry and briary that is very well-defined and expands with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. It is a tightly controlled, focused Bobal with good backbone and a clean, fresh, almost broody finish that is very appealing.

Fairview Pinotage $19.49
Dark purple in the glass, smoky notes with intense dark fruit aromas, framed by oak spice. Fleshy dark fruit continue on the palate with firm tannins and lingering flavors of spice and dark coffee.
