May Wine Time with Marina Quirk

Seville Quarter Wine Time

This notably aromatic and decadent Marcella’s blend is a viscous experience for wine drinkers. We selected this wine for one of our Friday wine tastings as it sits well in a lineup after something dry or acidic like a sparkling Brut or Prosecco. This is done in consideration to preserve the tongue and palate, ensuring an enjoyable experience that showcases each wine. My wine mentors have deeply instilled the saying, “What grows together, goes together”. Marcella’s blend is harvested from the Santa Barbara County, where Rhone varietals are receiving great praises and accolades. The ocean-cooled valleys, mountain ranges, and Eastern winds provide the Central Coast with microclimates and successful AVA’s like Santa Ynez and Santa Rita Hills. Easily pair this wine with marinated chicken skewers with peppers and grilled pineapple.

Hitting an equal contact of stainless steel and oak, this bright and expressive Marcella’s blend is viscous, juicy, and floral. Comprised mainly of Viognier 86% Roussanne 8%, Marsanne 3%, and Grenache Blanc 3%, this California Rhone inspired blend is a perfect summer wine to enjoy on your porch with good company. Seville Quarter is proud to offer part of the Fess Parker portfolio, showcasing The Big Easy blend, Ashley’s Pinot Noir, and the Santa Barbara Chardonnay. You can pick up this bottle of Marcella’s for $13.49!

There is an exuberant quality to this wine. Unsure if it’s the love of his wife Marcella (which the wine is named after) or the bustling harbor painted on the label that reminds me of the beautiful Gulf Coast, but there is certainly something about this wine that reminds me of home.

Cheers, Pensacola.
