Wine Pick #1:
2016 Ladera Sagrada Papa Godello
Valdeorras, Galicia, Spain
The steeply pitched vineyards of Ladera Sagrada represent the largest holdings in the Valdeorras DO with many vines 30+ years of age. All estate fruit, organically grown, hand-harvested and sorted, this superb wine conveys the geography of its origin. Godello, a grape that can communicate more than fruit and possessing the ability to age like Burgundian Chardonnays, gives aromas of rosemary, thyme, and oregano underscored by a firm, mineral character. Slow fermentation-no malolactic, 12 hours of skin contact, natural yeasts and aging in stainless tanks showcase the true nature of the fruit and its setting.
Wine Pick #2:
2016 Alazan Pinot Noir
Casablanca Valley, Chile
Kingston Family Vineyards is a boutique winery located on the farm that has been in the family for a century. They believe making wine is a journey and has evolved significantly over the 14 years since their first vintage.
The 2016 Alazan is one of the least extracted but most fruit-rich and energetic Alazans to date. Total production was less than 4500 bottles and represents the winery's top Pinot Noir. A top pick of Somms and collectors alike, the wine follows the tradition of founder Peter Kingston in being named for one of his beloved horses, burgundy-colored Alazan.
CHEESE PAIRING OF THE MONTH:
Cablanca Goat Gouda
An impressive import from The Netherlands that's made from 100% pure, pasteurized goat's milk, this cheese has a firm form and rich, creamy texture. You'll notice a delicate, citrusy "tang", but the taste is milder and sweeter than cheese made from unpasteurized milk. This goat gouda is exceptionally versatile as it is great on pizzas, in a salad, or even on its own.
