Featured Wine

 

Below are the February, 2009 Featured Wines for the Wines by Jennifer Wine Club.

 


White Wine

2007 Clemen Reserva

Vinho Verde D.O.C.

 

2007 Clemen ReservaLocated in the northwest section of Portugal, the climate in Vinho Verde is particularly different from other wine regions in the country, with high levels of precipitation and humidity and lengthy periods of fog and low temperatures, producing wines of character, depth and expression. This Atlantic climate and the granite soil are the main factors that give Vinho Verde wines their much appreciated characteristics: young, fresh wines with fruity aromas and relatively low alcohol levels.

The Clemen Reserva is a vibrant wine, with clean, fresh fruit aromas leading to flavors of citrus and a hint of minerality balancing bright acidity on the medium-long finish. The winery hand-harvests 100% of their grapes to ensure quality.

This blend of 50% Alvarinho and 50% Trajadura is a perfect accompaniment to grilled fish, seafood and white meat.

Red Wine

2006 Penley Estate

"Condor"

Coonawarra, South Australia

 

2006 Penley Estate "Condor"Founded in 1988 by a direct descendent of Australia's pioneering Penfold and Tolley families, Penley Estate is located in the heart of Australia's greatest Cabernet region. With its warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters, Coonawarra's climate is similar to both Bordeaux and Margaret River, each renowned Cabernet-producing regions.

The "Terra Rossa" soil is by far the most famous aspect of the terroir here. This rich, red earth with its small percentage of clay is incredibly free-draining, making it perfect for vine growing. The wines of Coonawarra should show classic cassis and blackberry flavors, with both these characteristics derived from the soil.

The Condor symbolizes Penley’s determination, energy and quiet persistence towards winemaking excellence. This blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet shows fragrant berries and spice on the nose, complemented by rich cassis and violets. The palate of juicy red berries, leather, and dark chocolate is supported by classic Coonawarra tannins, allowing the wine to be enjoyed now and over the next 5 - 7 years.

 

"Penley Estate is one of the finest Coonawarra producers, fashioning wines of greater richness, nuance and aging potential than most of their peers." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
