Summer Release Radar
Well, it's finally here - the season we've all been waiting for... MELTING TRASHCAN SEASON! (Or as it's known to the non-Arizona portion of the country, Summer.) And that begs the question, what are you doing to beat the heat? I know for my part, I'm busy drinking as much cold white wine in the pool as possible. I've even been known to test out nearly any bottle for it's "Spritz-ability Index," aka, how good it tastes when mixed with seltzer. I have no shame about it. When you can bake cookies on the hood of a car, and touching your sealtbelt results in 3rd degree burns, there's no room for judgement.
So what do we have coming your way here at Aridus to help you cope? I'm here to give you the scoop - some very spritzable wines. Of course, this past Friday we released the latest in our Tank Series, the Tank 19 white blend, a crisp blend of Chardonnay and Malvasia Bianca. Thanks to everyone who came out! Spritz-ability Index: 13/10
On June 15th, we'll be releasing out 2015 Chardonnay. It's a tasty little number with fresh apple notes, and sweet oak aromatics. Spritz-ability Index: 11/10
At the peak of July, on the 20th, we'll be releasing out 2017 Sauvignon Blanc. It's a grapefruit and mango bomb, and especially refreshing. Spritz-ability Index: 14/10
Finally, we're rounding out our summer releases with our 2016 Graciano. Okay, okay - it's not a white wine, not even a rose, but we think this one will be just what you need when the sun goes down and you're working the grill. Spritz-ability Index: 12/10 (try it as a kalimotxo - equal parts cola and wine!)
But OH-HO, what's this? Anyone who lives here knows that it's still hot in September, so here's your bonus sneak preview release... On September 14th, get ready for our 2016 Montepulciano!
Stay cool out there, folks!
