Staff Pick Notes

A pleasant young wine with aromas of flowers, such rose petals and flavors of red berries followed by a pronounced minerality. It is a youthful fun wine, easy to drink but, at the same time, with different layers: mainly Grenache, it's blended with Carignan and Syrah. These two partners give body and concentration. Vertigo Mas Amiel is organic and the grapes are handpicked. Concrete vats are used to retain freshness. Roussillon is a beautiful region in France close to Spain. Less known than other French region, it makes great affordable wines and this is a perfect example!

For years, this naturally high-yielding grape suffered from overproduction, but New World winemakers have lately taken up...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...
