Wine of the Week – DeMorgenzon Maestro White 2014

We have to confess, this is definitely one of our newest favorites- a beautiful white wine complex and delicious! It received 92 points from Wine Spectator and a distinguished wine writer, Jancis Robinson, applauded its elegance and combination of fruit and acidity. “This lad can make wine!” Robinson declared and we can definitely agree. The combination of fruitiness – pear and citrus –  and complexity makes it a wine you’ll want to have in your cellar. It combines Roussane (26%), Chardonnay (25%), Grenache Blanc (19%), Chenin Blanc (17%) and Vigonier  (13%) for a full bodied result that makes you want to return to it again and again. From Stellenbosch, South Africa, the grapes are grown in vineyards where music is played continuously and is believed to have “a beneficial effect” on the wine. We loved it and see why it won a 2015 Decanter World Wine Gold Award.

Wine of the Week – Marchese Fumanelli Terso Bianco 2009

Marchese Fumanelli has been making wines in Italy’s Valpolicella region since 1470. This lovely white is distinctive with its blend of 50 percent Garganega and 50 percent Trebbiano Toscana. Golden green in color, it delivers an elegant balance of fruit and minerality with a nose of white acacia blossoms and honey. We loved it for its distinctiveness and notes of fresh apricot, apple, mint and eucalyptus. Totally different from other whites,it delivers a unique experience that we found captivating. The wine is 13% ABV. The wines are imported by Pasternak Imports in the U.S.
