HUGUES BEAULIEU PICPOUL DE PINET, FRANCE Was $12.98 Now $10.98 3 Liter Box $32.99
100% Picpoul, aka Folle Blanche. Pale yellow color with green tints. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit. Lime flavors, with typical focusing acidity, are hallmarks of Picpoul. This wine impresses novices and hardened geeks equally. Known as “the Muscadet of the South” in France, this is to the Mediterranean coast of France what Albariño is to northwest Spain.
ARIOS TRAJADURA, PORTUGAL Was $14.98 Now $12.98
Aríos “Aguafuerte” Tajadura 2015 was picked at optimum ripeness, fermented at low temperature in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks. Bottled young to preserve the natural fruity aromas and fresh flavors characteristic of Trajadura. This wine sports complex aromas and flavors of peaches, apricots and other stone fruits with an underlying lemony character. Serve chilled with any shell fish, sea food, poultry or any delicately flavored dishes.
LUNA BEBERIDE MENCIA, SPAIN Was $14.98 Now $11.98
“Bright violet color. Fresh red and dark berry scents, along with suggestions of white pepper and licorice. Juicy and tightly focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering sappy blackberry, bitter cherry and lavender flavors supported by a spine of zesty acidity. Finishes with firm grip, chewy tannins and very good length, leaving a subtle floral quality behind. This wine was raised entirely in stainless steel and bottled without filtration.”

PETALOS DEL BIERZO MENCIA, SPAIN Was $24.98 Now $18.98
“Aromas of ripe berries such as blueberry and raspberry with slate and stone undertones. Full body plus silky and refined tannins that deliver a savory and delicious finish. Some pie crust and ripe fruit undertones too. Made from a selection of different vineyards of pure Mencía. Superb value. Drink now.”
