July Wines of the Month

2016 El Xamfra, Cava Rose, Penedes, Spain
Regularly $11.99, July Special Price $9.99
It’s hard to believe that this wine is as good as it is for the price that it is. Light and dry with delicate berry notes, this is as delicious as the day is long. Floral with subtle strawberry and spice notes with a crisp, clean finish, this is a steal of a deal.

2018 Les Deux Moulins, Sauvignon Blanc, Loire, France
Regularly $10.99, July Special Price $9.29
From the central part of the Loire Valley comes this note-perfect, easy-drinking Sauvignon Blanc. Grown on schist and clay soils, this wine shows terrific varietal character and a delicate minerality that’s immensely satisfying.

2018 Garciarevalo, “Casamaro” Verdejo, Rueda, Spain
Regularly $12.99, July Special Price $10.99
Clean and aromatic on the nose displaying tropical notes of pineapple that lead to big, lovely, powerful fruit, fresh grass and a subtle touch of fennel — typical of Verdejo. This wine is smooth on the palate and finishes with fruity, fresh, citrus and sparkling sensations.

2017 Nigl, “Freiheit” Gruner Veltliner, Niederösterreich, Austria
Regularly $18.99, July Special Price $16.14
Lime zest, fresh pear, and white pepper abound on this crystalline beauty from Austria. Incredibly focused with a fantastic mineral purity, this has quickly become a house favorite here at Spirited Gourmet.

2017 J. Girardin, Vire-Clesse, Burgundy, France
Regularly $22.99, July Special Price $19.54
This was one of those wines that I knew we had to have as soon as we tasted it. Vire-Clesse is a tiny village in Burgundy’s Maconnais and it is there where you’ll find some pretty fantastic Chardonnay. This offering from Girardin shows plenty of opulence and body but with a surprisingly strong mineral core. Notes of apple, pear, citrus, and white peach give way to a crisp, clean finish.

2018 Mimi, Rose, Cotes du Provence, France
Regularly $16.99, July Special Price $14.44
This classic Provencal rose is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah and it’s a marvelous example of what makes the wines of Provence so delightful. Fresh berries, stone fruits, and delicate floral notes with a lip-smacking freshness make this wine an excellent accompaniment to seafood, lighter fare, or just as a sipper on its own.

2018 Villa des Anges, Rose of Cinsault, Pays d’Oc, France
Regularly $11.99, July Special Price $9.99
A light-bodied wine, intensely crisp and vividly fresh, it offers complex aromas of strawberries and red currants, with a hint of quince. As an aperitif it is the perfect warm weather gulper and also pairs well with a wide range of salads, seafoods, lighter dishes and grilled white meats and poultry.

2017 Terrebonne, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Regularly $12.99, July Special Price $10.99
This juicy Pinot Noir from Terrebonne is great juice at a great price. The wine shows loads of dark fruits and a subtle earthy spice character. Smooth and rich on the palate, this is great with any kind of food off the grill or softer cheeses.

2016 Terranoble, Carignan Gran Reserva, Maule Valley, Chile
Regularly $17.99, July Special Price $15.29
Savory, dark, deep and delicious! This full-bodied Chilean red wine is made from 100% Carignan and shows aromas of fleshy ripe blackberries and dark plums. Just a portion of the wine is aged in older oak barrels to lend a pleasant textural component. The 2015 was a smashing success and the 2016 is just as delicious, if not more so.

2016 Domaine de Piaugier, “La Grange de Piaugier” Cotes du Rhone, France
Regularly $14.99, July Special Price $12.74
We’ve been fans of this wine for some time now and we hope you’ll see why. This blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault is a lighter, fresher style of Cotes du Rhone that shows a beautiful combination of brambly fruits and spicy minerality. Incredibly versatile, this wine wants to be your friend.

2016 Sottimano, “Pairolero” Barbera d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $21.99, July Special Price $18.69
Produced from a scant thirteen hectares in Neive, this Barbera is a blend of two vineyards that are regularly producing exceptional wines for the Sottimano family. Dark, inky red, with loads of red fruits, minerals and a touch of graphite on the nose with a long, rich taste in which the fruity components and the spicy notes are well balanced by a good acidity.

2016 Revelry, Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, WA
Regularly $18.99, July Special Price $16.14
I wish more people would pay attention to what’s happening in Washington. The quality of the wines coming from the Columbia and Yakima valleys are pretty outstanding and the Revelry Cabernet makes for a perfect example. Perhaps just a touch more restrained than what you might find coming out of Napa, this wine is redolent with deep red fruits, firm but silky tannins, and just a subtle touch of earthy spice that lend the wine a level of complexity.
