Join us to sample two awesome new arrivals from Claverach Farm Wines!
2015 Slavcek Sivi Pinot Grigio, Slovenia
On Sale $10.99
From a winery over 200 years old, this wine surprised us with its elegance. Brief skin contact gives it an orange hue. It is then aged in neutral acacia and Slovenian oak made from the trees immediately surrounding the vineyards. This wine is a complete expression of the area in which the grapes were grown. On the palate, it has notes of dried apricots and figs, with an earthy, spicy finish…unusual and exciting for a Pinot Grigio.
2014 Wildekrans Pinotage
On Sale $15.99
Finally we’ve found a Pinotage that we think is not only a classic example of this region’s most famous grape, but it’s really, really good. Pinotage is a Pinot Noir-Carignan hybrid that was bred to withstand the S. African climate. We rarely bring in Pinotage because it typically underwhelms us, but this one is an exception. Aromas of smoky vanilla and clove lead to a medium-bodied palate of bright red berries and cherries.
