Free Friday Tasting: Who’s Ready for Spring?
Now that we are through the (inevitable) rainfall and nastiness of the May Long Weekend, spring can properly begin, and we are featuring 4 remarkably fresh and lively wines for the season:
Most of you will know Hexamer for their Quarzit and Trocken Rieslings, but they are actually much more famous for their sweeter wines. This Kabinett, from the Altenberg vineyard is lively and fresh, and would be perfect with sweet BBQ sauces.
Next up, from Angiolino Maule, we have a lightly orange wine called Sassaia. For those of you curious about orange wine, this is a great place to start, as it is very approachable and easy to drink.
Rounding out the whites is the Harslevelu from Meinklang. We have tasted their Gruner Veltliner and Burgenlandweis before, but this native Hungarian grape, mostly used to make Tokaji Aszu, is a beautiful, aromatic, and rich wine perfect for dinner parties.
Finally, we are so happy to have the Rogue Vines Super Itata back at last!!! The “sister wine” to the Grand Itata, this spicy, smoky, and powerful red is just the thing for grilled red meats, or just to have with friends.
Come try these out, it’s a great lineup for a Friday wine tasting!
