This week’s case consists of the favourites from ALL the lockdown tastings past. Join Elliot this week as he goes through some of your old favourite wineries, those that you may have missed that others liked and those you’d just love to see more of from your favourite wine makers.
What’s in the case this favourites week:
Jacques Bruere Brut Rose: The Jacques Bruére 2011 Cap Classique Cuvée Rosé Brut is to be enjoyed on its own or with seafood-based canapés. Truly versatile and can be served with oysters, salmon, tuna, prosciutto, sushi, Asian style dishes, rich cheeses, and redberry desserts. Faint lemon and raspberry scent. Silky richness filled with red berries and balanced with subtle mineral undertones.
Storicca Valpolicella Classico Ripasso: Dark red, almost impenetrable. Intense and elegant nose with aromas of ripe cherries and blueberries with a slight spiciness due to refinement in oak barrels. Very firm on the palate, soft tannins in good balance with nice acidity and hints of pulpy fruits. Serving at a temperature of 18°C. Open the bottle one hour before serving at room temperature.
Dr Loosen Bernkastler Lay: the Lay vineyard has somewhat gentler slopes and richer slate soil than the estate`s other vineyards to produce a dense, creamy-textured Kabinett with a typical racey Riesling acidity.
