Platinum Wine Club: Details & Selections Of The Month

For our 20th anniversary we created the Platinum Wine Club, allowing you to explore the world of wine 2 bottles at a time. We give you a wine you probably know (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay) and then one that’s off the wall, something you would probably never pick up on your own and to take you out of your comfort zone. We have done a Txakoli from Spain, a Claret from the Columbia Valley & a Gamay Beaujolais rose from Burgundy, to name a few. You can also structure the Platinum Wine Club to fit your needs! You get a sheet, explaining the wines, where they are from, tasting notes and food pairings too.  Here’s how it works:
 
The basic membership is 2 wines a month for $30.00.
You can also do 4 wines a month for $60.00
You can just do a 2 bottle, 3 month membership for $90.00, payable in advance. The same applies for 4 bottles for $180.00, payable in advance.
You can pay for 6 months in advance and get 1 month free

Platinum Wine Club September 2021 

You’ll need to work with me on this on! You have had to have one of the 3 grapes in this blend, which was made famous in southern France, most notably in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The abbreviation GSM is used worldwide, though. Grenache gives the wine spice, Syrah structure & color, Mourvedra provides the tannins. 

The Known: La Galope This blend of Grenache, Syrah & Mourvèdre has a deep ruby color, its intense aromas of garrigue (distinctly herbaceous, peppery or smoky tones reminiscent of the low-lying vegetation that grows wild particularly the South of France.) Also, by ripe fruit followed by spicy notes. Warm and fleshy on the palate. 

La Galope are unique bottlings from the Domaine de l’Herre’ winery, a historic property founded in 1974 in the heart of Gascony, at the foot of the Pyrenees, in South-West France. The micro-climate of Gascony and the sand clayey soils make a perfect terroir for varietals typically associated with Bordeaux. The vineyards are sustainably farmed. 

Food Pairings: fattier steaks like a ribeye, any grilled or barbecued red meats, roasted chicken, mushrooms, or charcuterie. The wine also pairs well with meals including spices and herbs such as rosemary, sage, and red pepper.

Produced using stainless steel fermentation, the wine is delicate with elegance and a dry, gentle, velvety taste. 

It’s straw-yellow in color and a characteristic bouquet of delicate nuances of sambuca, peach flowers, sage and white pepper. Its taste is of fruity apples and pineapple with a mineral undertone.
