CLASSIC VARIETALS

February 11, 2017

Last week, the focus was on regions and the beautiful characteristics they imbue their wines with, so this Saturday we follow it up with a trio of wines made from three of the classic wine-grapes, with a palate cleanser in the form of a refreshing sparkler from Italy, although Glera, the grape used to make Prosecco, should be considered a ‘Modern Classic’.

Jeio Bisol Prosecco ($14.95): Fresh, fizzy, fruity and unambiguously delicious, this has all the hallmarks of a new favorite in the making. A great everyday wine that will also wow for special occasions, this bottle of bubbles belongs with you.

Kumeu Chardonnay ($35.99): Pale gold and clear, this amazing wine is fragrant with lemon and line blossom – almost Riesling-like – and ripe meyer lemon, rather than peach fruit, but still with a fine, lifted cut to finish out this world-class white.

Bergstrom Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir ($45.99): Dark burgundy in color with a youthful violet hue at the rim of the glass. Its lovely aromatics are a sweet and savory mixture of dark fruits like blackberry, marionberry and blueberry, a dustiness resembling cigar tobacco, a rocky mineral quality, along with savory herbiness.

Whitehall Lane Merlot ($25.99): This velvety, lush, mouth-filling Merlot has aromas and flavors of blackberries and plum that are expertly balanced by oak nuances and a hint of mocha, while remaining structured and elegant as a good merlot should.
