This Sunday we are headed down under to sample a couple of new arrivals in the shop, starting with a Viognier and ending up with a Shiraz-heavy blend.

2018 Yalumba The Y Series      $11
South Austrailia
Cornsilk yellow in color with green hues. Aromas of white flowers and honeysuckle dominate the nose, with ginger and five spice to finish. The white flowers and ginger lead into a creamy mid palate with a silky textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees aging give the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate.

2015 Pikes Los Compañeros      $15
80% Shiraz, 20% Temperanillo
Clare Valley Austrailia
Clear and deep ruby in appearance, Los Companeros greets the nose with seductive blueberry fruit framed by suggestions of chocolate, mint, earth, and spice. On the palate, this wine is rich and dense yet approachable. The concentrated dark fruit and chocolate are tempered nicely by fine, silky tannins and balanced acidity.  On the finish, the wine shows harmony among its structural components and suggests a comfortable cellaring period of three to five years.

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.
