You are invited to join us this Friday for another great wine tasting at Stellar Wine Company. We've put together an outstanding lineup of four wines specially selected to please wine lovers of all levels and their friends. Our very own Rob J will be providing musical entertainment.
We'll start this tasting with an Albariño, considered by many Spain's premier quality white wine. Albariño, is actually a grape from northwest Spain used to make dry, aromatic white wines. The one I'll be pouring is "Lagar da Condesa", a top Albariño with flavors of peach, apricot, almonds and citrus (tangerine and lemon). These wines are traditionally paired with fish and seafood, but also go quite well with poultry, mediterranean cuisine, rice dishes and salads. The popularity of Albariños in the US market has increased to levels unimaginable just a few years ago, taste ours and you'll see why.
Next I'll pour a "Protea" South African Chenin Blanc from the country's Western Cape wine region. This wine has a crisp, smooth texture, aromas of pear, citrus and honeysuckle, and a bright after taste that make it ideal with sushi, grilled fish, stir-fried asian dishes and salads.
Next on to Italy to taste "Il Ghizzano", a delicious, medium-bodied red from a coastal hamlet in northwestern Tuscany that's blessed with the perfect soil and climate for winemaking. The wine is a fruity, fresh Sangiovese-Merlot organic blend perfect for everyday enjoyment with food or on its own.
I'll wrap the tasting with a Torres Santa Digna Reserve made with Carmenere, Chile's signature red grape. This is a full-bodied, red wine with ripe berry flavors, balsamic touches, slight smokiness and a spicy finish - a great easy drinking, "value wine" that bonds perfectly with burgers, steaks, stews and roasts.
See you all on Friday!
