Beat The Heat!

It is going to be a toasty weekend here in Madrona.  You can pick your favorite weather site to guess what the temperature is predicted. But here at Madrona Wine we have a lot of pink in the forecast. The air conditioner is at the ready if that isn’t enough to make you chill out.

Saturday is our Rosé Roundup.  We have five very distinct Rosés lined up for France, Italy and Greece. Come find out which one cools you off the best.
2016 Routas, Provence Rosé  $14
2016 Galantin, Bandol Rosé  $20
2016 La Spinetta, Il Rosé di Casanova  $20
2016 Oenops, Apla Rosé  $18
Fiorini, Lambrusco Corte degli Attimi  $15

Sunday we’re pouring two very cool wines from Greece, a delightful rosé of Xinomavro, followed by another obscure Greek grape, Liatiko.

2016 Diofili Xinomavro Rosé  $13
From Greece this very dry rose offers great acidity, intense raspberry and strawberry flavors with a crisp mineral after taste.

2014 Douloufakis, Liatiko  $15
From Crete, the Liatiko is a delicious rarity. Medium-bodied and soft but with a tangy cherry edge and a spicy, dried roses and lavender streak, the wine reminded me of a pleasant potpourri with cinnamon sticks. Organic

Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.

DOC Rioja and a shot of Priorat

Saturday, June 17th, 2pm

Denominación de Origen Calificada, is the highest category in Spanish wine, reserved for regions with above-average grape prices and particularly stringent quality controls. Rioja was the first Spanish region to be awarded DOC status in 1991, followed by Priorat in 2003. These are the only two regions considered “above” DO status.  This Saturday we’ll be trying several wines from Rioja and one from Priorat.  Come see what difference the C makes.
 
2015 El Coto, Rioja Blanco $12
100% Viura
Viura makes fruity wines with floral notes and notable acidity.  The El Coto Blanco is intensely aromatic, well balanced, with body and the fruit has a refreshing tart character. Pleasant acidity combines perfectly with an exquisite aftertaste of flowers, fruit and fine herbs.

2016 El Coto, Rosado $12
Tempranillo, Garnacha
This rosé is produced by bleeding of the free-run juice from the grapes. The wine has aromas of fresh strawberries and caramel. On the palate, it is fresh as well as fruit focused.
 
2013 El Coto, Crianza $13
Tempranillo
El Cotos Crianza ages for 12 months in select 225 liter American oak barrels and 6months in the bottle before leaving the winery. In the wine glass it presents a clean, bright cherry color with a garnet edge. On the nose, it maintains the freshness of the fruit, with notes of vanilla and the most emblematic aromas of toasted oak. On the palate it is silky and persistent presenting a taste of well blended spice.
 
2011 Beronia, Reserva  $18
94% Tempranillo, 4% Graciano, 2% Mazuelo
The Beronia Reserva is aged in mixed oak barrels of American staves and French tops for 20 months to allow a paused and harmonic evolution. The American oak gives a sweet character of vanilla and coconut while the French oak gives spice, making for the perfect balance. It is then aged in bottle for 18 months before release.  The wine has an attractive nose with candied fruits and plum marmalade in perfect harmony with sweet aromas such as chocolate. On the palate, the characteristic Tempranillo notes of cherry and strawberry are accompanied by licorice, balanced acidity and silky tannins.
 
2014 Marco Abella, Loidana Priorat $35
44% Grenache, 38% Carignan, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon
The Loidana ages 12 months in French Oak barrels from five different coopers.  It is a blend of the Priorat’s two indigenous varieties, Grenache and Carignan with Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure and depth. This wine is smooth on the palate and remains harmonious to the finish. Loidana offers notes of red fruit and black berries with hints of spices.
