Three Cheers for Beer
August 2nd is International Beer Day, and we’re serving 2-for-1 draft
Estrella Damm and Stella Artois at participating markets. Come thirsty.
Pinkies up! Our Coral Gables market is now carrying Matear Yerba Mate tea. This local company is run by Paola and Veronica, who want to share their heritage through the tradition of brewing and imbibing yerba mate.
Pick up some supplies to make organic hot mate or iced mate (tereré)
and take part in the ritual of sharing.
Now Carrying Matear Yerba Mate Tea!
We have a lot of Rosé wines from all over the world
in store waiting to refresh YOUR summer!
In August, we’re going to Europe and have chosen the Muga Rosé
2017 from the famed Spanish Rioja region and a legendary family producer.
This Rosé is a very good example of a powerful and quite impressive ‘old world’ style wine.
Blending Grenache, Tempranillo and a healthy dose of white Viura/
Macabeo grapes (added for extra freshness) the wine is then kept
for a short period of time in small wooden vats and ‘sur lie’
(on the lees, an extended fermentation process) for 3 months,
to give it its impressive mouthfeel.
With ripe white and Saturn peaches, yellow apricots, lilac,
ground almonds and nectarines on the first olfactory impression,
it has a great fresh and mineral focus on the first taste.
After that initial floral Rosé garden, it lingers
on and on with great lemon acidity, freshness and length.
A broad mouthfeel and the focused minerality is a great palate
cleanser and therefore Muga’s Rosé is also a very good food companion.
A grilled chicken Paillard, salmon with miso or white creamy sauces,
pasta dishes with cheese, Pizza Quattro Fromaggi and grilled green
vegetables like broccolini, green asparagus or Padrón peppers are
perfect when paired with this wine. Shrimp and shellfish with garlic
and parsley are also a good idea to have with this very satisfying Rosé.
Also consider: Las Perdices Malbec Rosé, Trumpeter
Rosé de Malbec or one of the many other Rosés / sparkling Rosés
available at our markets.
