Melée Wine

We have just the wine for you!melee2We just received the third vintage of Melée wine and it is already a staff favorite!!

“The wine is rich and multilayered, with boysenberry and crushed strawberry on the nose. The palate is more boysenberry and fresh plum, followed by classic Provance herb notes and a soft plush tension that ties the whole package together. A crisp finish of anise and currant closes out the package.

This wine was aged sur-lie in French oak for 18 months. Bottled unfined, it’s tasting delicious now, but will continue to mature for the next 8 to 10 years.”

Be adventurous, give it a try and if nothing else at least it has a kickass label 🙂 ….Seriously though, you really don’t want to miss out on this one!
