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: 

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

Go Niners! Go Ravens! Go team!   So as some of you may know, I'm originally from the other (Chesapeake) Bay Area and will be rooting accordingly. That said, both teams have had terrific seasons and I'm just looking forward to a well played, hard fought superbowl and Har-Bowl II (remember the result of the first Har-Bowl, right?)  

Team allegiances aside, here are a few Superbowl picks that all of us here, as well as many of you I'm sure, can agree on:  

2011 Isastegi Sagardo Naturala (Natural Cider) Pais Vasco - $9.99

2008 Cantiga Crianza Rioja - $14.99

2008 Asenjo y Manso Crianza Ribera del Duero - $17.99

Good night, and good luck!  

Salud, Joe
