Beer and Wine Weekly Update, April 13, 2015
By Joey Bowling, Beer and Wine Manager
I wanted to spend a little page space this week on French and Italian wine classifications. Have you ever picked up a bottle and wondered what all that abbreviated gobbledegook meant? D.O.C., I.G.T., A.O.C., V.D.P....(head explodes)! I hate when that happens.
Let’s see if I can help a little bit.
April Wines Under $10
This month, we are featuring a red and a white from Brancott Estates in New Zealand.
The Sauvignon Blanc has a very nice nose of lemongrass and citrus, with tangy flavors of grapefruit and stonefruit. It pairs very well with poultry or fish dishes, as well as spring yard work!
The Pinot Noir has aromas of plum and roses, with black cherry and licorice. It pairs excellently with either red or white meats, soft or hard cheeses, or your monthly book club.
