September 2020 Manager’s Picks

For the past 5 years, Hugh Hamilton, our favorite Australian winemaker, has been kind enough to host a tasting at MWS. Due to covid 19, he’s unable to come to the states. To honor Hugh, we have chosen his wines to be the manager picks for this September.

The Villain Cabernet Sauvignon: On the nose:A compelling perfume of roses, cherry wood, and incense.

Palate: Char, roses and Darjeeling tea. A fine texture as of emery. Pairing: Porcini crusted Rib Eye will do nicely.$19.99

Scallywag Chardonnay Nose: Peach, nectarine and rockmelon blossom. Palate: Silky, fine-textured and intense. Our ‘Scally’ drips with delicious fresh fruit and possesses a depth of flavor. Pairing: Scallop and basil dumplings or chicken and pumpkin filo pastries. Asia or Europe? Your choice! The Scallywag is versatile. $12.99

The Rascal Shiraz Nose: Blueberry and black tea backed by blackcurrant, cherry wood, and subtle varietal violets. Palate: plush palate amply supported by well-placed fine French cooperage. A subtle earthy-charry spiciness leads to a lingering finish of bright crunchy fruit. Pairing: Simple. A whole lamb leg. $19.99

The Floozie Rose’: A very delicate aromatic lift of cherries, raspberry and rose petal. These delicious aromas are joined by pink lady apples and strawberries. Finely balanced acid leads the dry palate to a beautifully crisp finish. $15.99
