What We're Drinking

 

 

 

In December, we drink Champagne at closing at K&L- and we prefer to drink it out of magnum when possible. The highlight this year was the Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L) magnum ($74.99) that we had on Christmas eve. This single vineyard beauty comes from the Gouttes d’Or, a very steep east facing parcel in the little village of Brouillet. It was creamy, delicate and perfectly refreshing! We all say to cheers to you, and hope your holiday is filled with fun and friends!

NZSB Value For White Drinkers

2011 Sherwood Estate Stratum Sauvignon Blanc $9.99 - This is a great example of top value Marlborough SB. This is a hand made wine produced by the fully accredited sustainable Sherwood Estate Winery. The fruit is sourced from all estate vineyards, (Rowley Crescent, Sandy Creek and Stoney Range vineyards) that are situated at either end of Rapaura Road in heart of Marlborough. Nighttime picking and immediate whole cluster pressing keeps the juice fresh and vibrant, two characteristics that describe the finished wine perfectly. Some 3 months of lees contact add a hint of mid palate weight to the wine which gives a nice textural finesse not found in many wines in this price point. A sub $10 Marlborough SB that is hand made not factory produced, give some a try you won’t regret it!
