What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Hope for Japan

As if a devastating 9.0 earthquake wasn't enough. The subsequent tsunamis and now potential nuclear disaster in Japan should make us all grateful for the relative security with which we all live. People in Japan are without clean water, food or shelter. But there is hope. And that hope springs from the millions and millions of people around the world doing whatever they can to assist relief efforts. Rather than tantalzing you with some food and wine pairing, or encouraging you to buy a bottle of this or that, I ask that you take the $10 you would might have spent on wine today (or a pint at your local pub, or a latte, whatever) and to donate it to one of the many organizations that are working diligently to help the survivors in Japan. From the Red Cross to Shelterbox to WANDAA, there are a wide variety of groups helping in the relieft effort. Check out Crowdrise.com to find a project you support, or create your own. Together we can all bring a little hope to Japan.
