Each month, WineShop At Home releases four brand new artisan wines. In the August 2020 wine club, our members receive a special treat with a new brand, Suburban Fracas. Check out all the details and see what’s coming in your box.
Our le Cadeau California Rosé Sparkling Wine has a pretty pink-purple color. The nose displays white flower fragrances like acacia and orange blossom. Later on, notes of raspberry, watermelon and hay complete this expressive and aromatic nose. The attack in the mouth is dry, round and pleasant. There are citrus aromas, which provide – from the midpalate to the finish – a good amount of acidity for structure and ageing potential. This is a medium-bodied wine with longlasting bubbles, which are a sign of quality in sparkling wines. Enjoy right away, during the holidays, for special – or even casual – events. Appetizers and desserts are the food pairing of choice such as savory pastries, grilled chicken skewers, shrimp cocktail, strawberry cheesecake or chocolate lava cake.
Our Suburban Fracas 2019 Melee is a sweet white wine blend made from a clash of two varietals. It is not often that Sauvignon Blanc encounters Symphony. The result is a turbulent, flavorful wine displaying aromas of pear, apple and grapefruit. The fragrances are very intense in the most revealing way possible. There are also mineral undertones that lead to a bright finish. The sweetness coats the mouth for a rich mid-palate and flavorful finish. Intense fruit notes are also present in the mouthfeel with pineapple, lychee and some bergamot candy characteristics. Enjoy this sweet Melee with a cheese platter, sweet and sour pork, pasta with seafood or light desserts.
Suburban Fracas 2019 Tannat was made from 100% sustainably-grown Tannat grapes from the region of Lodi. A deep dark color is one of the key attributes of this varietal. After losing yourself in its beautiful dark robe, you will find a rich nose of plum, blackberry and cherry, followed by intense toasted oak notes in the finish. This dry red wine displays a lot of strength in the attack with big tannins from the fruit, which taper off toward the end to become more refined and almost silky.
Our Suburban Fracas Reprobate red blend displays a massive nose of blueberry, blackberry and cherry. This is a young, inviting red wine. Some of these characters are also displayed in the mouth. However, the dominant factor is the tannins. Layers of tannins develop nicely in the mouth. All seven varietals comprised in this blend are known for bringing color and body to wine. The mid-palate and finish provide some relief with the presence of residual sugar. Later, we have light toasted oak notes in the finish. This wine is very dynamic and will pair well with a wide range of dishes like grilled steak, pork carnitas tacos or crispy potato cakes with Cheddar and scallions.
