MacArthur Beverages presents South African Wines
With Alyssa & Ian from Red Wolf Imports
Saturday June 23rd 1:00pm – 4:00pm
THE RED WOLF EMBODIES LOVE AND PASSION FOR ADVENTURE, TRAVEL, WINE, FOOD, AND SHARING GOOD THINGS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
MEET THE RED WOLF
After working for nine years in healthcare, Alyssa realized that her true passion lies in sharing wine with people rather than torturing them as she did in her prior role as physical therapist. Alyssa started on the WSET track in 2016, and has loved meeting the wonderful people living the wine life.
As a recovering lawyer, Ian sometimes feels like a cliche. He gets weirdly excited about the role that random chance plays in the carefully orchestrated process of making wine. Fortunately, he loves paperwork so is an invaluable asset to this importer team.
They will be pouring the following wines:
Sku: 71289 | $14.99
2016 Babylon Storen Mourvedre Rose
Showing strawberries and rose petals on the nose, strawberry yogurt on the palate with a fresh acidity for a delicious, lingering mouth feel. Made in a Bandol like style this wine has nice freshness and a bit more length and complexity than the typical Provencal rose. During the hot summer months, the wine is very versatile for pairing with food but also great on its own.

Wild fruit, prune and berry with toasted cedar, vanilla and gun smoke on the nose. Palate starts out racy, with bright red fruit and firm tannins, developing further complexity of sour cherry, cola, green olives and smoke. Great to pair with gilled meats especially game or BBQ.

On the nose, aromas of freshly crushed red pepper kernel, intense blueberry and subtle black cherry are with a faint hint of smoky baking spices.

Wonderful to pair with Lamb, Grass fed Beef, Venison, and Bleu Cheese.
