Aloha Grapes Gang —
Gosh, we've got an interesting line-up of wines for you at this Thursday's tasting. We'll be tasting three reds that are delicious and ready for your Sunday afternoon BBQ: Andre Brunel's Cote du Rhone, Tasca's Regaleali Rosso and A-Mano's Primitivo. We'll also be tasting two white wines that make me dance: Zoe from Greece and New Age White. Both are zingy and full of fun!
Looking forward to seeing you and your friends this Thursday. Randy
WINE TASTING REDS:
Andre Brunel, Cote-du-Rhone, Cote-du-Rhone, France ($15 per bottle) –
Wonderful red berry fruit both on the nose and mouth. Medium in weight; Brunel's CdR is a quaffer and goes well with a range of food, including KTA's teriyaki pork.
Tasca, Regaleali Nero D'Avola, Sicilia, Italy ($15 per bottle) –
We've tasted Tasca's Regaleali before but this is a new vintage. It still shows bright red berries with Surinam cherries on the finish. A great food wine, especially with grilled chicken.
A-Mano, Primitivo, Puglia, Italy ($13 per bottle) –
Finally a Primitivo worthy of Grapes. A-Mano showcases wonderful black plums, oregano, spice and fresh blue berries over a medium frame. Soft and easy to drink, make sure you buy a couple of bottles, since it goes down really fast!
WINE TASTING WHITES:
Zoe, Peloponnese, Greece ($12 per bottle) –
Zoe is made for a hot beautiful day. It's made from the Rodis and Moscofilero grape varietals and shows bright, clean lemon flavors with minerals on the finish. A great wine to start your pau hana with friends.
New Age White, Mendoza Valley, Argentina ($12 per bottle) –
New Age White is made up of Argentina's Torrontes grape varietal and Sauvignon Blanc. Bright and zesty with a hint of sweetness, you serve this wine over ice with a squeeze of lime juice (yes, you read correctly). A great party wine!
A wine tasting service fee of $5.00 per person will be assessed at the door. This service fee will be discounted off of any bottle purchased at the wine tasting. Thank you for your understanding.
