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.

Take the K&L Blind Tasting Challenge This Weekend! 

Put your Palate to the Test!

Join us for our first-ever 2-day Blind Tasting Challenge, hosted by the expert staff at K&L in Redwood City. The Challenge includes the Blind Chardonnay Tasting on Friday 10/12 (5pm-6:30pm) and the Blind Cabernet Tasting on Saturday 10/13 (1pm-4pm). Attend both tastings and vote on your favorites! The lineups will be revealed after the tasting, and the most popular duo of Chardonnay and Cabernet will be featured the following week on Uncorked.

This is a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of these two important varietals and their potential for incredible diversity in expression based on factors of terroir, climate, viticulture, and winemaking technique as you sharpen your blind tasting skills and learn from the pros. If you think you know Chard and Cab, think again...

All palates welcome! The main goal is to learn, taste, and have fun, and anyone is welcome to attend and share in these tastings, voting is optional. No RSVP required. Come on down!
