Week of September 18th, 2018

White Wines

  • Burgundy, Loire Valley, and Piedmont - with a little South Australian kiss. This Chardonnay blend brings lushness with linearity using the weight of Eden Valley and the crystalline notes of the Adelaide Hills. Higher tones in the wine come from herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc and pithy Arneis adding plenty of texture and stone fruit flavor. Dry and zesty, with lifted aromas flavors of citrus, melon and white blossom.
  • Located in the commune of Haux southwest of Bordeaux’s city center, this chateau has produced estate-bottled wine since the 16th century. Its renovation in the 19th century yielded the distinctive façade now pictured on the label of each of their cuvees. This white Bordeaux is as complex as most from the Pessac-Leognan appellation but without the associated high price tag. A delicious juxtaposition of crisp and creamy, with the slightest hint of wood, this begs for a seafood dish.

Red Wines

  • Bright, medium to deep crimson in color, opening with violets, sea spray and fresh Mediterranean herbs. There is a lovely hit of blueberry, a hint of black tea and the quintessential Australian note of dried eucalypt. When you first try the wine, there is an initial burst of fresh fruit sweetness, balanced beautifully with savory notes of fresh herbs and a lovely acid that complements the blueberry Danish opulence. This is a fresh and vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon with focused, yet friendly tannins.
  • This 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache Noir blend from France's Languedoc region has a beautiful red purple color with intensive brightness. The nose is discrete, opening on notes of cherry, leather, candied and red fruit. Averaging a vine age between 20 and 30 years old, growing on large pebbles, flint gravel, and chalky-clayey slopes, only 18,000 bottles are produced each year.
  • Syrah and Mourvèdre are natural partners, having grown together in the Rhône valley for thousands of years, and that relationship continues to thrive in South Africa. In this blend, black currant and cherry fruit aromas are balanced with exotic spice and earthy undertones. The wine is smooth with a dry, lingering finish. Perfect alongside the braai (South African for BBQ or Roast).
  • This Stellenbosch winery's reserve series of wines are limited production, limited release treasures to savor. Velvety, soft ripe fruit and a savory touch of oak make this an intriguing wine made with Malbec, the lesser-known Bordeaux varietal. Enjoy with a savory seasoned steak, double-cut grilled pork chop, or exotic meats such as roast wild boar or lean buffalo steak. Pair with the "Lamb Shanks Osso Buco" from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!

September Featured Flight: Malbec Regions of Argentina

Argentina is currently the largest producer of Malbec in the world, and it is grown extensively in every wine region of the country, from Salta to Patagonia. Malbec expresses itself very well in regions with broad temperature ranges and calcareous, clayey or sandy soils such as those found at the foot of the Andes. These geographic and climatic features make Argentine Malbec stand out particularly for the quality of its tannins: sweet, silky and mouth-filling.

Salta (Northern Argentina)
The northern region of Salta is one with high altitude and plenty of sun. Malbec from this region expresses a unique personality: aromas of very ripe red and black fruits, black pepper and paprika, with a very solid structure of solid, sweet tannins. This Malbec is intense ruby red with great vivacity and violet notes. Red fresh fruits such as raspberry, strawberry and cherry combine with a spicy aroma given by the use of oak. This wine can be cellared up to four years.

Uco Valley, Mendoza (Central Argentina)
The province of Uco Valley is mountain-flanked in nearly every direction and dominated by miles upon miles of lush vineyards. The province harbors several of the country’s most highly reputed wineries, many of which offer biodynamic vineyards, award-winning architecture and design, and creative chef collaborations. Uco Valley dominates the country’s wine production, and their Malbecs are more elegant, with distinctive spicy and floral notes. This Malbec is a silky and delicate wine with wonderful depth of fruit and aromas of black fruits, black pepper, tangerine skin and flint. Superbly refined tannins deliver a sexy texture plus a bright and minerally finish.

Patagonia (Southern Argentina)
In Patagonia (Neuquén and Río Negro), the climate is slightly colder and altitudes are less extreme. This helps the grapes retain acidity, yielding wines with notes of ripe black fruits combined with a marked mineral tone. This Malbec is intense and bright red with violet tones. Aromas of red fruits, plums, and blueberries, with vanilla and some soft, spicy notes also present. Silky and ripe, this wine is fresh and balanced with an elegant and fruity finish.

Pairings:
Serve Malbec with leaner cuts of seasoned or spicy red meats, dark meat poultry, roasted pork, hard cheeses, charcuterie plates and the “Grilled Lamb Kabobs” from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
