October Wines are something special. For the reds, we offer dueling Malbecs. Two different brothers, two different tastes, both delicious! The whites feature a Sauvignon Blanc and a Rose. The Rose is a great transition as we embark on the cooler temperatures. We hope you enjoy! Cheers!
Argentina's best small-family growers express their individual passions with single-grower, single-vineyard wines. Each wine named after a grower family demonstrates the wide range of Malbec aroma and flavor profiles generated by distinct Mendoza appellations. La Posta translates to "the tavern," where the farmers meet to discuss their soils, their vines, their quest for superior flavors, and their passions for life. In collaboration with wine pioneer Laura Catena and esteemed winemaker Luis Reginato, the hard work and skill of the people behind the wines are expressed in La Posta. 92 Pts James Suckling
The vibrant nose of red and black cherries and ripe plums combines with floral touches of violets and rose petals. It holds a nice tannic structure that is full on the palate. Vanilla, chocolate, and some spice appears to make it more complex.

Villa Maria's key focus is to be environmentally responsible and to operate using sustainable practices in order to protect the land for future generations. They have farmed Sauvignon Blanc organically since 2010, gaining BioGro certification in 2012. Summer was dry and mild with Marlborough's signature high sunshine hours and cool nights delivering fruit in the best possible condition. The early autumn 2021 season provided Marlborough with very stable weather conditions therefore fruit was able to reach optimum physiological and flavour ripeness. The fruit for this blend came from Belmonte, Winery Block vineyards in Wairau Valley & Resolution, Templar & Waterfalls Rd vineyards in Awatere Valley.
Lifted aromas of citrus fruits, lime and grapefruit that leap from the glass. The flavors on the palate showcase fresh herbs, lemongrass and passionfruit.

This Rosé is rare to find as most of it never leaves France where it gets served in many 2 and 3 star restaurants. This "Symphonie Rosé" delivers fine scents of white peaches, gage, hints of aniseed and a little Vanilla without ever having touched a wooden barrel. 92 Pts from Wine Enthusiast!
On the palate there is a fruity juicy play with subtle mineral acidity and a phenomenal finish.
