Weirdly Wonderful Wines

weirdlywonderfulwineTues-Thurs Tasting
November 17-19

This week we taste three delicious – but different! – international wines. Featuring:

  • Domaine Lupin “Frangy”, Savoie, France – This organic white made from the local grape Altesse is a vibrant mouthful filled with notes of baked apple, rich almond nougat and a hint of gingerbread all balanced with a touch of cream in the mid palate yet a clean, minerally finish. $21 btl, $8 btg
  • Macedon Pinot Noir, Macedonia – Grown on the same latitude as Burgundy and Russian River Valley, this layered Pinot kicks off with ripe red and black cherry flavours and a hint of earth, then gradually opens to silky flavours of caramel and raisins. $16 btl, $7 btg
  • Goru Gold, Jumilla, Spain – This blend of Monastrell, Pie Franco, Syrah and Cab is hand harvested and aged one year in French and Romanian oak to make this highly aromatic — and acclaimed (WS: 93 pts) – red tasting of ripe black berries and plums, rich baking spices and a hint of balsamic and toasted oak. $16 btl, $7 btg

Tasting: $13

Paired with: Bacon & Date Flatbread with Chevre Drizzle
