Below are the June, 2006 Featured Wines for the Wines by Jennifer Wine Club.


White Wine

2005 Vavasour Riesling

Marlborough, New Zealand

 

2005 Vavasour RieslingVavasour Wines are the pioneers of the Awatere Valley. They were the first to plant in what is now regarded as one of the premium grape growing regions of Marlborough, New Zealand.

The soils here are free-draining and the climate is dry, warm and frost-free. The area has a climate different from the rest of Marlborough, so it produces wines with a unique and distinct flavour.

Each year outstanding parcels of grapes are earmarked for special attention. When the resulting wine is regarded as outstanding, it forms the small quantity of wine under the Vavasour banner.

This wine is delicious and shows crisp, clean, focused lime characteristics and really stands out. It displays a beautiful lift to the nose, offering classic lime and green apple aromatics, with a hint of minerality running up through the fruit. Vividly clean and bright, this has a racy edge to the lime and juicy apple fruit that is countered with some deceptive mid-palate richness. Finishing long and lingering, this has excellent drive and fruit intensity that really shows off its youthful vibrancy. Drink this over the next 12-18 months to maximize its youthful zest. This wine is perfect with roasted chicken, seafood pasta salad, or on the back deck on a warm summer evening. Enjoy!

Red Wine

2002 Quinta do Carmo Dom Martinho

Alentejo, Portugal

2002 Quinta do Carmo Dom MartinhoThe Alentejo District covers about one-third of the total wine growing area of Portugal and lies between Lisbon and the Algarve in the very south. It is already established in producing some very good red wines which have a bouquet of ripe fruits, yet remaining soft on the palate. They use six principle grape varieties: Aragonez, Antão Vaz, Castelão, Rabo de Ovelha, Síria and Trincadeira.

The Alentejo is a mystical place of gliding plains, sudden mountains, and the largest cork forests in the world. The Alentejo's Cork Country is a lightly populated region with open horizons where the rhythm of life follows the rhythm of regional songs. This fertile land produces more than half of the world's total cork supply.

The winery was purchased by Domaines Baron de Rothschild and was completely renovated to produce the quality of wines that is expected worldwide of the famous Rothschild family. This wine just explodes with flavor: full of bright cherries, with black plum highlights on the palate as well as the finish; an outstanding effort that will pair well with cheese-filled grilled sausages.
