Staff Picks: What We Tried This Week!
Bernardi Prosecco DOC Spumante Biologico, NV
Grape(s): 100% Glera
Josh quoths: Ripe apples and pears aplenty, giving way to heaps of lovely floral notes. Good mouth-watering acidity, with a very healthy Granny Smith finish. A wonderful aperitivo to enjoy as the early Autumn sun dips down below the horizon – but if you’re hungry then some scallops would be a real hit with this.
Pol Opuesto Que Grande Sos, 2017
Grape(s): Field blend of inter-planted Criolla Grande, Muscat (White & Pink), Criolla Chica (aka, País, Mission), the Cereza grape, Tempranillo and Bonarda.
James keeps it brief: Juice! Pure fruit juice! Chill it down, take it on a picnic and finish the bottle by the River Wey! N.B. - any local river will surfice...
Sokol Blosser Dundee Hills Pinot Gris, 2017
Grape(s): 100% Pinot Gris
Peter posits: Organic Pinot Gris from one of the finest producers in Oregon. A nice zip of acidity balances out the more tropical fruit flavours. A great match to seafood or lighter chicken recipes.
Scherer Gewurztraminer Reserve, 2017
Grape(s): 100% Gewurztraminer
Emma elucidates: Settled on the stunning plateau near Eguisheim, this Gewurtz is hand-picked and aged for 10 months in 100-year old oak barrels. A lovely straw yellow colour, it has equal amounts of fruit, spice, residual sugar and acidity. The perfect partner for Chinese and sweet oriental dishes.
