Renegade Wines August 2020 Newsletter


We all know that when the weather gets hot Rose and White wines are super-popular but more and more wine drinkers are asking for a red that's chillable and super delicious. Here are five that we think shine.
We begin with two wines from Austria both from the Zweigelt grape. The first from Umanthum is the lighter of the two: fresh, lean, savory ($20).
The second, from Rosi Schuster, is a juicer version of Zweigelt (Rotburger = Zweigelt). Fuller, friendly, fun. Another great chillable red ($22).
We move to Beaujolais and to producer Raphael Chopin. One of our favorite cool reds with bright red berry fruit and a savory complexity ($20).
From Sicily is our favorite Frappato from COS packaged in a fun, squat bottle ($28). Super smooth, precise, bequiling.
Finally, the long-awaited return of everyone's favorite Cinsault from the South of France: L'Ampoule.
The 2019 vintage is better than ever. Light and spicy with great aromatics. Let this one open up a few minutes ($18.50).
We're asked how cold do these reds need to be. It's really up to you. We usually put a bottle in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes before opening. Or if the wine is already in the fridge, uncork and let it sit out on the counter for 20-30 minutes before enjoying.

2019 Clos Alivu Rose (France, Corsica) $22
It's back in stock!
You've probably drank a glass or two and already know what a wonderful Rose this one is.
If not, stop by and pick up a bottle. It's a very worthy wine.

2017 Domaine Anne Gros Bourgogne Cuvee Marine (France, Burgundy) $52
A fresh, exotic Chardonnay with notes of citrus, passion fruit, melon wrapped in soft minerality. Perfect with grilled fish, roasted chicken, brie.

2015 Petrussa Schioppettino di Prepotto
(Italy, Colli Orientali del Friuli) $42.50
Schioppettino is a red grape indigenous to north-east Italy. Almost extinct by the 1970s, it's undergone a revival thanks to the high quality of wine it produces. Its homeland is Prepotto, right on the Slovenian border where this excellent wine comes from. Peppery, elegant, and fruity, medium-bodied with smooth tannins and bright acidity, this is a graceful wine with lots of depth and concentration.
Highly Recommended.
Call or email 805.568.1961 to reserve yours and we'll have it ready ASAP for curbside pickup.
