Below are the March, 2007 Featured Wines for the Wines by Jennifer Wine Club.


White Wine


2006 Montes "Leyda Vineyard"

Sauvignon Blanc

Leyda Valley, Chile

 

2005 Montes Leyda Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

 

The single most exciting current development in Chile is the range of fine white wines now emerging. Leading the way is the Montes "Leyda Vineyard," a very well-made, deeply serious Sauvignon Blanc that is both lively and richly flavored.

The assertive aroma offers loads of pretty pink grapefruit and ripe, citrus tangerine, with a bit of confection. Itís medium-bodied in the mouth, with a good dose of herbaceous sweet pea and asparagus that stops well short of the garden salad crunch of typical New Zealand versions of SB. This is a right-down-the-middle Sauvignon Blanc, with a little something to please everyone, including lots of bright fruit and brisk acidity, as well as some stony minerality on the finish.

 

Alluring mix of herb and fruit notes, with chive, sweet pea, honeysuckle and lemon verbena followed by a bright, minerally finish. Begs for food. Nicely done. Drink now. 8,000 cases made. - Wine Spectator, 88 Points.

 

FOOD PAIRING RECOMMENDATIONS: Seafood, shell fish, chicken, grilled vegetables.

Chile's Leyda Valley is a newly designated region near the Pacific Ocean that is starting to gain serious attention among wine aficionados. Located just south of the Casablanca Valley, the first commercial vines were planted in Leyda Valley in the late 1990's and the first harvest was as recent as 2001. Itís just 12km from the coast and even cooler than the Casablanca Valley. The constant sea breeze blows inland and dries the grapes slightly, adding to their concentration. Leyda has quickly established a glowing reputation for high quality Sauvignon Blanc.

Red Wine


2004 Lake Breeze

Grenache

Langhorne Creek, Australia

 

Lake Breeze WineryLake Breeze is one of Australia's most awarded boutique wineries, achieving an extraordinary level of success in Australian Wine Shows, including 16 trophies and 51 gold medals since 1994.

The grapes used to make this classic wine were selectively harvested from six rows of the family's 72 year-old Grenache vines. They were hand picked when very ripe to enhance the flavor and body of the wine, which shows an intense aroma of ripe berries with pepper and earthy overtones. The palate is rich and spicy, with a long soft finish. With correct cellaring, this wine will age gracefully over the next 4-5 years. Only 320 dozen produced.

 

Langhorne Creek, Australia Wine Map

Langhorne Creek is one of Australia's oldest and fastest-growing wine grape districts. Vineyards were first planted in the 1860's at Langhorne Creek on the banks of the Bremer River. The region rests between the Adelaide Hills and Lake Alexandrina, only a one hour drive from Adelaide.

Langhorne Creek is renowned for its full-bodied red wines. The grapes have an intense quality due to the location and unique natural influences. Cool afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina help to create a surprisingly cool climate, which allows for a longer, more even ripening period. This is coupled with deep, rich alluvial soil, which is deposited by the unique annual flooding of the Bremer River.

The Lake Breeze winemaker/manager Greg Follett, and proprietors Ken and Marlene Follett have visited us at Wines by Jennifer in the past and we look forward to seeing them again soon to learn about all the new happenings at Lake Breeze!

 

 

Wines by Jennifer is also proud to announce our new "Cellar Club", featuring a new wine each month suitable for long-term aging. Call the shop and ask for Jennifer for all the details on this exciting new Club, or visit our Featured Cellar Club Wine page for details on this month's selection.
