Wines of the Week!
2012 Anton Bauer Zweigelt
Shining ruby and crimson. Bright cherry fruit. Rich berry flavors are complemented by finely integrated spice and pepper notes. Smooth tannins are balanced by a streak of nice acidity. Zweigelt is the most exported varietal from Austria. It's a perfect "stand-in" for lighter, food friendly reds like a Pinot Noir, Gamay or Dolcetto. This wine loves food and can even handle a little time in the fridge if you're so inclined. It's Austrian origin beckons a classic thin pork schnitzel loin with bacon and mushroom gravy but so versatile you can go salmon, pasta, and by all means, Thanksgiving turkey.
2015 Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer
Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer is clean, fruity and wonderfully light on its feet, showing off the aromatic charm of the variety without being heavy or ponderous. It has a deliciously juicy texture and a delightfully delicate aroma of spice and fresh roses. It's very refreshing to drink on its own and makes a perfect accompaniment to spicy Asian cuisine, pork with apple chutney and a perfect match with your holiday bird!
Secateurs Chenin Blanc
92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2012 Secateurs Chenin Blanc has a light but pure bouquet with lemon peel, grapefruit and hints of wet wool. The palate is crisp and vibrant. This is so well balanced - uncomplicated but delicious." Scores of 90 points plus, year after year!
