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.

Wine of the Week: Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake ($15.99)

It's Sake Time! Taste our pick of the week - the Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake - and Melissa's other favorites this Friday 7/8 at K&L RWC!  Details

Pick up a bottle of this irresistable Sake for your next sushi or creative food pairing endeavor. In stock NOW at KLWines.com!Looking for something different to pair with your next experiment in molecular gastronomy? Our Sake buyer (and professional chef) Melissa Smith swears by the Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake (330ml $15.99), a new arrival to our expanding Sake collection. One of her favorite sparkling sakes, this little bottle of joy is made from Gohyaku-Mangoku Rice by the Suehiro Sake Brewery in Fukushima.  It is drier than most other sakes, but has a hint of sweetness, making it better suited to more adventurous food pairings than regular sparkling wines.  "Its got the honeydew notes and the yogurty flavor that I commonly associate with these sparkling sakes," writes Melissa, "a great light body, and fine bubbles. I am VERY excited about this sake (and love saying the name)!"

And we have to admit, the label is pretty cute, too.
