27 Apr 98 Rock’s Amelia and Dave Schuemann peel back the wine label
Sips of the Week
Yard Dog White Blend, McLaren Vale, Australia $12.99
Winemaker’s Notes: From this white is pale straw; zesty, high-pitched aromas of lemon and lime zest and white flowers. Dry and precise, with lively citrus and orchard fruit flavors that show good clarity and lift. Finishes tangy and dry, with good cut and subtle spiciness.
43% Chardonnay, 28% Semillon, 20% Pinot Gris, and 9% Sauvignon Blanc
Revolution Malbec, Argentina $12.99
Winemakers Notes: Displays layered fruit, spicy flavors, good balance, and a medium-long finish. Argentina is in the midst of a Revolution. The same restless spirit which is the soul of the Argentine people has ignited a revolution in winemaking. This revolution has hundreds of young winemakers bringing out the natural beauty the vineyards of Argentina have to offer. Best reflected in its signature wines; Malbec and Torrontés. These wines express both power and elegance, soulfull yet unique. A reflection of Argentina itself. It is our passion to spread this spirit of rebellion and originality ¡Viva la revolución!
