Wines of the Week
Each week, we select a few wines from our shop for a 10% discount and some spotlight as to why we think they're so great!
-NV Nigl Brut de Brut, Kremstal, Austria - Weingut Nigl is located in the Krems Valley, near the ruins of the medieval Senftenberg castle, over 25 hectares of micah, slate a loess soils, all farmed sustainably with natural winemaking techniques. The Brut de Brut, which is equivalent to extra brut, is actually a blanc de noirs, made from mostly Pinot Noir with some Zweigelt. The wine shows aromas of red berry fruit, light sourdough, followed by a lively yet creamy palate, finishing with bright acidity and lingering flavors of raspberry and strawberry. It is a great wine with raw bar or sushi.
-2018 Blanc de Noirs Trocken, Carl Ehrhard, Rheingau, Germany - This is a white wine produced from Pinot Noir. After the grapes are harvested by hand, they are gently pressed. The wine is then made without skins which would otherwise add color. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, then 50% is aged in oak barrels for 3 months and blended right before bottling. It is a very elegant and dry wine with a floral bouquet, creamy and smooth palate with flavors of melon and kiwi and ripe acidity. A great accompaniment to fresh cheeses, salads, and poultry.
-2019 Weingut Brundlemayer, Gruner Veltliner Terrassen, Kamptal, Austria - Some of the most geologically diverse terroirs in Europe are here, in the heart of the Kamptal. The Danube and Kamp rivers and the wooded hills of the Waldviertel forest create a climate with large diurnal temperature swings, essential to a long growing season. These rocky, terraced vineyards are not the steep, jagged terraces of the Kremstal or the Wachau; these are larger wider terraces, each creating its own micro climate. The most famous vineyards in the region are located in the village of Zöbing. Bründlmayer has a very high proportion of old vines, with many plantings over 50 years old, and a parcel in the Heiligenstein planted in the 1920s. Their 90 total hectares are certified organic. The Kamptal Terrassen Gruner Veltliner is sourced from younger areas of the best terraced vineyards at different elevations around Langenlois. It shows aromas of hay flowers and fine spice, green nuts, zest, and apple peel, with a dry, juicy palate, with firmness, medium body, and light, subtle fruit aroma and mineral on the finish. It is a great pairing with spicy southeast Asian cuisine or curry.
-2019 Weingut Roterfaden, Rosswag Co-op 'Terraces' Red Vineyard Project 002, Wurttemberg, Germany - Wurttemberg is the 4th largest wine region in Germany, located far in the south, with almost 11,500 hectares of vineyards and about 70% being red varietals. There are about 15,000 family owned vineyards, thus co-operatives are responsible for a large proportion of the wines made here. Roterfaden is a tiny producer, farming biodynamically on dry stone terraces with pure limestone, where the Lemberger and Pinot Noir varietals show particularly unique notes. The Terraces Red Vineyard Project 002 is a field blend of red grapes that are co fermented - Lemberger, Trollinger, Regent, and Schwartzriesling (Pinot Meunier). It shows fresh red fruit aromas with hints of sweet vanilla, and gentle tannins on the palate, followed by a fresh and lively finish. It is a great pairing with lamb, mushroom, and soft cheeses.
