Great wine doesn’t have to cost a lot…
Ted Clark, Wine Consultant, Pop’s Wine & Spirits, July, 2017

"Everybody’s looking for great whites wines to drink in the Summer heat…

My pick is an outstanding wine at a ridiculously low price.

From Alsace, The 2012 Jean Baptiste Adam L’Auxxerois, Vieilles Vignes is a unique white wine called Pinot Auxerrois – This is the perfect wine for Summer sipping. Dry, light citrus, persistent mid-palate, great finish… great with seafood or just hanging out at the beach…

A lovely wine for $30…

A steal for $7+!!!

Tasted last week, the staff bought out and sold the first drop. More is arriving tomorrow.

Everybody loves a great Pinot Noir…. Closeout…
"New Zealand makes some of the most compelling Pinot Noirs… but no one wants to pay $50 for them…

The 2011 Seresin, Rachel Pinot noir drinks $45-55 a bottle but tastes a lot better under $20!!!

A blend from all three of their vineyard sites, Rachel is named after Michael Seresin’s mother. The vines are cropped to produce enough fruit for just one bottle per vine… This fruit is handpicked and completely destemmed before being fermented with wild yeast.

Certified organic and biodynamically grown

The extraordinary nose exhibits aromas of black cherry, truffle and chocolate. This is a very full, concentrated Pinot noir with a dense core of rich fruit, alongside savoury spice all underpinned by silky-fine and mouth coating tannins.

Long on the finish, with a cleansing acidity, this is a poised, yet powerful wine.

At 19.68 a bottle it is Outrageous!!!!!!"

2011 Seresin Pinot Noir, Rachel, Marlborough, New Zealand, 750ml
$56.25 - Good Wine Stores
$19.68 - Pop's Single Bottle Price
$19.68 - Pop's Mixed Case Price

Lastly, a killer Brunello Closeout…
"How about a 96 Rated (Decanter Magazine) 2011 Brunello from Silvio Nardi that was $67.59…

Deep, ruby-red with intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. The wine is in it’s prime now and will continue to age well. Shows a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors, framed by noble, velvety tannins.

Tastes a lot better for $37.17!!!

Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper.

96 Points – Decanter
"Wonderful youthful freshness and drive here. Cool, crunchy berry fruit, fresh thyme, and spice and leather aromas, and what a big impression on the palate. It is clean and classy with a touch of astringency, very fine tannins, and a long, complex finish."
