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.

Friday Night Tastings at K&L Redwood City

Above: Mike Dunn pours a vertical of Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon to K&L customers in the Redwood City tasting bar.

Folks in the know keep their calendars open every Friday from 5-6:30 p.m. when K&L Redwood City opens its tasting bar to the public. These tastings are fun, casual events geared towards introducing customers to our favorite winemakers and importers from around the world.  

The cost to taste? Typically $10 or less.

The opportunity to hear Randall Graham (of Bonny Doon fame) recite poetry from his Vinthology "Been Doon So Long" while sipping on biodynamic Albariño, to fall in love with Nebbiolo all over again thanks to the wit, charm (and excellent Italian wine imports) of Oliver McCrum, to taste why it's worth waiting for that Dunn Cab to come around, or to develop a new appreciation for Chilean Carmenere with the master Mauro Von Siebenthal himself?

Priceless.
