Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Low rain and plentiful sunshine results in fantastic ripening conditions for this certified organic wine.
Hand-harvested, with a strict sorting process, fermentation is in stainless steel with indigenous yeast.
Deep and ripe with silky tannins and a minerality that just won't quit, this is a versatile wine that works well with grilled meats, fish and vegetable gratins.
Yellow+Blue. When you mix the two together, you get green, as in environmentally conscious, forward thinking and committed to positive change. With the high cost of fossil fuel driving up the cost of shipping, they saw the price of good imported wines rising out of range for the average buyer. In their search for a way to lower these costs for quality-conscious wine drinkers, they found a solution that is also great for the environment. Then they got a little “greener” by partnering with organic wineries that use only traditional, natural winemaking processes. The result? Great tasting, certified organic wine that’s better for the planet and available at a great price.
The Agrelo and Lujan de Cuyo subregions sit just to the southwest of the city of Mendoza, in the foothills of the massive Andes Mountain range to the west. The soils are quite poor, which causes the roots of the vines to seek deep sources of nourishment, and subsequently improve the fruit. Agrelo, in particular, also benefits from a very cool climate, which slows/evens the ripening process and makes for excellent Chardonnay fruit.
