Case Imports Tasting – Friday July 25th, 4pm- 8pm –
Trevisiol Brut Cuvee Edoardo Sparkling – 20.57 – This Expressive Italian Chardonnay Sparker Is Not Dry, Not Sweet, But A Perfect Balance Of Both! Pale Yellow. Floral, citrus fruit. Harmonious, elegant and fresh fruit. Very well balanced. Area of production: Valdobbiadene, Collalto. Appellation: Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOC. Paolo Trevisiol – “The difference between himself and four previous generations? Paolo’s sole interest is in making a small amount of quality wine, as opposed to the large productions of the past; he still rotates every bottle of his top spumante by hand!”
Saveurs du Temps Rosé 2013 – 18.97 – Organic. 75% Grenache / 25% Syrah. Costières de Nimes – Located in the Southern Rhone, close to Provence, the Saveur du Temps estate was established in 1929. Translated, it means “flavor of the time” and we can’t imagine words more true this time of year. Lots of red berry and watermelon, this rose is crisp, dry, and certainly a bargain! Pretty, balanced and fruit-forward red, white and rose wines. This rose blend of Grenache and Syrah is produced by a union of small winegrowers dedicated to their vineyards located just west of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Fresh and lots of lush red berry aromas.
Grand Boise Cotes de Provence Rosé 2013 – 24.57 – Organic. 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 20% Syrah. Fermentation in stainless steel vat, aging in stainless steel vat and barrels. The wine is made from vines which are being converted to organic farming, under the control of the organic label “Qualité France”. Within the perspective of the most natural cultivation possible and respecting nature, no synthetic chemical is used. A robe with glints of violet. Good freshness and with plenty of breadth in the mouth, with subtle scents of red fruit. Grand Boise is a unique place in Provence dating back to 1610 when the vineyards were first planted and is located on a hill with beautiful views of the Ste Victoire Mountain. Now certified organic.
Dessert – Cantina Vallebelbo San Maurizio Moscato d’Asti 2011 – 12.97 – Wine Enthusiast – Fresh, piquant and bright, this Moscato d’Asti opens with slightly green aromas of wild flower, cut grass, wild sage and dried hay. The wine is plush and creamy, with a long, sweet endnote that recalls honey, marzipan and peach. 5.5% alcohol.
