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


White Wine


2005 KONRAD SAUVIGNON BLANC

Marlborough, New Zealand

 

2005 Konrad Sauvignon Blanc

The winery is wholly-owned by Konrad and Sigrun Hengstler. They originally migrated from Germany to Australia and then, having decided to become involved in the wine industry, made the move from there to New Zealand to plant Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough.

The two company-owned vineyards are located in the heart of the Marlborough wine growing region at the top of New Zealandís South Island. The sites, one in the Wairau Valley (20 hectares) and the other in the Waihopai Valley (10 hectares), have been planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Noir since 1996.

Konrad Vineyard


The Wairau Valley vineyard is a very warm site producing early ripening wines. Waihopai Valley, much closer to the frost line, is considered more of a cool climate vineyard. The wines of Konrad are selected from the two sites and then blended to achieve an optimum balance between rich, ripe flavors and fresh acidity. The technique has been very successful, producing award-winning wines, selected for medals in Auckland, London, and Singapore.

New Zealand Wine MapWith longer average hours of sunshine than any other part of the country and the free-draining, silty, alluvial loam, the terroir is superbly suited to viticulture. Plants are irrigated throughout the summer and trained on a vertical shoot positioning trellis. In early spring, the Waihopai Valley vineyard is exposed to frost, therefore frost protection through an overhead sprinkling system has been installed. Reduced spray programs and focus on traditional techniques, such as shoot thinning and leaf and fruit plucking, are evidence of the companyís commitment to vineyard-controlled quality.

This wine features a wonderful array of lemon-lime mineral notes coupled with tropical apricot aromas, leading to an exquisite palate of citrus and passion fruit flavors. The focused fruit expression is enhanced with the lively natural acid balance which gives this Sauvignon Blanc a wonderfully long finish.

The wine pairs beautifully with seafood, poultry, pasta and Asian dishes, or just by itself.


Red Wine


2004 MEINKLANG PINOT NOIR

Neusiedlersee, Burgenland, Austria


2004 Meinklang Pinot Noir The Meinklang wine estate is led by the Michlits family and is Austria's leading organic wine estate. It is located next to Lake Neusiedl in the eastern part of Burgenland. The family has a large respect for nature and follows the biodynamic principles of the Demeter Association in their wine cultivation and farming methods. The family also cultivates farmland and manages Angus cows at the site.

The excellent quality of the wines are evidenced by the many accolades it has won: twice named "best Austrian organic winery"; awarded the highest rating for the Zwerest 2002 at the world's largest organic wine competition; three gold medals at Biofach 2006; as well as being rated in the top three organic wineries worldwide.

Burgenland, Austria MapThe hot summer days and cool nights of the Pannonian climate are perfect for making juicy grapes with powerful deep expressional fruit flavors.

The nose is dominated by ripe fruits and strawberry and a smell of jam flavors suggests good healthy ripened grapes. A dark ruby color and complex berry aromas dominate this typical Pinot style. Due to its well-balanced tannin structure, this Pinot is a winning partner for nearly every dinner.
