Such an amazing day!
Beautiful views. Beer. Shots. Coworkers. Kayaking. FOOD. Dodge ball. I haven’t had this much fun being a kid again in a LONG time.
I’m very blessed to have come upon this company and be apart of their team.
Excited for what the further holds for me.

Since discovering Barnaby Flanders @garagiste_wines range it has been a store favourite - we are lucky enough to get the ONLY 12 bottles of this Aligote in WA. Does one have your name on it? 👌🏼🍷

Clos Margalaine: A Garagistes' Wine⠀

Wikipedia explains: The garagistes refers to a group of winemakers in the Bordeaux region, producing "Vins de garage", "Garage wine". A group emerged in the mid-1990s in reaction to the traditional style of red Bordeaux wine, which is highly tannic and requires long ageing in the bottle to become drinkable. The garagistes developed a style more consistent with perceived international wine tastes.⠀

For red wines this means "bigger, bolder, fruitier wines, often with sometimes a higher alcohol content." The new style for white wines is a more pronounced oak taste with some residual sugar. This new style of wine is controversial, and purists claim that the wines will not age well and they don't reflect well the terroir of the region, nor the typicity of the grape varieties used. Characterised as "winemaker's wine whose attributes reflect a disregard for the traditional handling of its particular terroir", the term is sometimes used somewhat as a backhanded compliment; in light of this, vins de garage wines come from previously unknown estates without proven track record or pedigree. Alternately, such wine is referred to as "super-cuvée" or "microchâteau". The wines produced by these estates often receive very high wine ratings from Robert Parker (a US wine critic), and are usually sold at prices driven high by rarity, hyperbole, and fashion.⠀

Clos Margalain is the second wine of Chateau Marojallia. Marojallia is a Medoc “garagiste” wine that in its short history has developed a cult following. Though it is located in the Margaux appellation, the 9-acre estate it is not part of the historic 1855 classification, given that Marojallia was established only in 1999. About 12,000 bottles of Clos Margalaine are made annually.⠀

Inspection day for our new house! But had some friends over for a BBQ at our current house.
_________________
The pinot noir really sung right out of the bottle with lush red fruit and a mineral and earthy finish. Really nice and layered with everything elegantly in balance.
_________________
As you know I don’t drink a lot of rose, but @garagiste_wine has fine value offerings and this certainly satisfied. Fruitier on the front end than expected, but crushed stones and mineral on the finish made this a really solid value. Should have been served colder, but despite @corkcicle was really hot in dc today.

Christmas in May...

Good way to kick off summer with the case of rosé... Will think long and hard before cracking into the #altostratus Pinots.

Get it while it's hot (it's not actually hot, that wouldn't be ideal. You get the point). @blackcloudwine for more details.

Happy Sauvignon Blanc day!

We have decided to join the international celebration of this versatile grape to abolish some unfair prejudices about it and showcase how we think Sauvignon Blanc should be done!
Four of the greatest SB on our list will be offered by the glass tonight.
From the tropical and fresh Iona of South Africa to the herby and aromatic Wild Sauvignon of New Zealand via the classic, elegant French Menetou-Salon by Jean Teiller and the awesome Aussie Côtier from the uber cool guys at @garagiste_wines .

Name: 2008 Piers Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain
_________________
My Rating: 88
_________________
Price: $28 from @garagiste_wine
_________________
Glass from @coravin. Part of Garagiste's own label taking grapes sourced from the finest vineyards and selling at a fraction of the price. Have had great success with other Piers, including the 2008 "Saffran", but this was not my favorite.
_________________
Nice nose of sweet red fruit and a bit of dust. On the palate, a bit lightweight for a cab. Red fruit up front and some heat on the back end. Short finish of fine tannins still present but in a good place. Entirely pleasant, but not quite as high of a level as the other Piers offerings I have tried so far.
