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.

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: When It Rains It 'Flors'

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Long time, no Sherry! That's what I was thinking to myself as I sipped one of my last bottles of Equipo Navazos Manzanilla en Rama "I Think" recently. Well, when it rains, it flors (this pun's for you, Majeski!). We have a few new faces in the section, not to mention a host of new sherries due to arrive later next week from a bodega that arguably boasts the most diverse and impressive line-up of wines from the region. Of course I'm referring to Valdespino. More on those next week, just keep your eyes peeled.

For now though, in no particular order I have some wines which have recently arrived which may be of interest to some of you.
