CELLAR CLUB AUGUST 2019

Posted by Rose Friedlander on

Ah, summer - a time when people like to imbibe in a little something called "summer water." We're talking about rosé wine, the pink drink that keeps many a pool party goin' strong! This August we are paying tribute to the pale pink, salmon and pale ruby-hued wines as we enjoy the dog days of summer through rosé tinted glasses!
Thank you for being a member of The Cellar Club!
Wine Pick #1:
2018 Domaine Casa Rossa Rosé
Vin de Corse-Figari, Corsica, France
Vins Breban is a third-generation, family-owned négociant founded in 1960 by Raymond Breban who had, like many before him, fallen in love with Provence and devoted his life to the production and promotion of the wines of the region.  Helmed now by his son, Jean-Jacques, their reach now extends to the island of Corsica.  Here, the clay-limestone soils, abundant sunshine, moderating ocean breezes and mountainous topography all combine with the Breban ethos of quality, authenticity, and respect for the culture and farming practices of their partners to produce wines of exceptional character.
Wine Pick #2:
Conquilla Cava Brut Rosé NV
Penedes, Catalunya, Spain
Conquilla is the Catalan word for shell and, indeed, the soils are comprised of sedimentary limestone rich in fossils from ancient seabeds that now tower above the sea. This sparkler is made from 100% estate fruit that sees 8 hours of skin maceration followed by secondary, temperature-controlled fermentation. 12 months aging sur lie follows imparting complexity and body. This is a remarkable and pleasantly addictive sparkling wine that easily rivals others priced at twice the price. The August weather could ask for no finer a dining companion!
CHEESE PAIRING OF THE MONTH:
Jasper Hill Harbison
Harbison is a Jasper Hill cheese named after Anne Harbison, the original contributor to the making of this cheese. It is a soft-ripened cow's milk cheese with a bloomy rind, wrapped in strips of spruce cambium, which are harvested from the woodlands of Jasper Hill.  When ripe, Harbison has a very spoonable texture that continues to soften until consumed. It's woodsy and sweet with lemony, mustardy, and vegetal flavors.
