Merkin Chupacabra Bubbles NV A refreshing blend of Chardonnay, Malvasia, and Sauvignon Blanc from Buhl Memorial Vineyard in Willcox, AZ. Each of the grapes in the blend add a different dimension to this wine. For jumping aromatics, we depend on the Malvasia. For body and backbone, the Chardonnay plays its most important role. Acidity is always crucial in sparkling wine and this is where Sauvignon Blanc comes into play. With fine bubbles to dance over your tongue, this wine is fun in a glass.
Merkin Vineyards Chupacabra 2018 65% Syrah 20% Mourvedre & 40% Grenache from MJK’s own Buhl Memorial Vineyard in Willcox County in Southern Arizona. These grapes are aged in Neutral French Oak to give the grapes time to relax and come together as a full bodied red. This wine keeps getting better every year and it comes down to the vineyard. The vines are totally in sync with the land and sky and are producing the most delicious fruit. The 2017 version is woven together seemlessly to create a delicious and complex red wine. Easily sipped without food or bring it together with BBQ meats, slow cooked meals or char grilled vegetables” Matt@Sip Wine.
