GERMAN REISLING

                                                                                

 

 

From renowned German vineyards, this Riesling is captivating and complex. Crisp flavors of honey, peach, and lemon finish with a lingering minerality. Riesling is an aromatic white wine grape variety that originated in the Rhine region of Germany, where it is still the most planted grape variety grown throughout the country. In Germany’s most famous winemaking region, the Mosel, it makes up a whopping 60% of total plantings. While it is now also grown in almost every cool wine making region in the world, German Rieslings are still considered amongst the finest. In the best vintages, German Rieslings are prized by wine collectors the world over. Riesling typically displays flowery, almost perfumed, aromas as well as high acidity. Because of this hallmark acidity, it can be used to make dry, semi-sweet and sweet wines.

 

ITALIAN NEGROAMARO

 

                                                                          

 

Negroamaro is a red wine grape variety native to southern Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Apulia and particularly in Salento, the peninsula which can be visualised as the “heel” of Italy. The grape can produce wines very deep in color. Wines made from Negroamaro tend to be very rustic in character, combining perfume with an earthy bitterness. The grape produces some of the best red wines of Apulia, particularly when blended with the highly scented Malvasia Nera, as in the case of Salice Salentino.

This Negroamaro is richly jewel-hued and full bodied.Mild hints of wood and spice on the nose play with fruity notes for a complex aroma.On the palate, ripe berry is complemented by ground baking spice and silky tannins with a long finish.

Dry, full bodied, medium-heavy oak, 14.5% alcohol
