Sunday is Easter and we’ll have two French Rosés open to sip on as you hunt for those Easter eggs.
2018 French Pool Toy $10
This playfully packaged wine (bottled in a plant PET fully recyclable bottle) is as serious as those other Côtes de Provence Rosé wines (well, maybe not) but it does have tart red fruit & a crisp refreshing flavor for the beach, park, boat, hike, hot tub. 12.5% alcohol by volume
2018 Figuiére Le Saint André Rosé $15
25% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauginon, 25% Grenache, 25% Cinsault
Provence Rosé from La Londe-les-Maures, between Marseille and Nice, where the vineyards’ proximity to the sea lends freshness and soft minerality. Aromas and flavors of peach, orange skin and white flowers are accented by refreshing acidity and a salty minerality thanks to the influence of the sea. 13% alcohol by volume
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.
