As we wrap up the end of 2020 here at Madrona Wine, we’d like to take a minute to thank all of you for your support and patronage in this very odd year. We look forward to the point in 2021 when we are all vaccinated and can return to a more relaxed, more social way, of running a wine shop. ‘Til then we will happily meet you at the door.
We’ll be open this week:
Tuesday & Wednesday Noon to 6pm
Thursday (New Year’s Eve) Noon to 5:30
Closed New Year’s day
Open Saturday & Sunday Noon to 6pm
Next week we will go back
to our non-holiday hours:
Wednesday to Sunday Noon to 6pm
Closed Monday & Tuesdays.
One last wine for 2020 arriving at the shop on New Year’s Eve. We’re taking this as a good omen for 2021
Magic Door, La Cle de la Femme Champagne $36
This Champagne is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The grapes are grown in top vineyards sites in the Marne Valley. These vineyard sites are made of sedimentary soils of calcium, silica, and limestone which impart layers of minerality into the wine. It is then left on the lees for 20 months. It shows expressive aromas of apple and white pear along with more subtle notes of almond, buttered toast and baking spices.
