It’s time for our July Wine Tasting Dinner! This Saturday we will be presenting wines from Spain accompanied by a selection of Spanish foods.
You will be greeted with a glass of Honoro Vera Blanco–
This white from Rueda exudes intense aromas of white flowers and fresh fruit with exotic tropical notes. Enjoy while you choose your seat and greet your friends!
To begin our Spanish exploration, sit down to a plate of Spanish charcuterie paired with Atteca Atteca- deep cherry in color, it has intense aromas of red ripe fruit (ripe raspberry) combined perfectly with spicy notes of cacao, vanilla and licorice. It is very fresh and fruity in the mouth with a notable ending of fruit and spice. It is a magnificent expression of an elegant 100% Garnacha from Aragon.
Next, Chicken and Shrimp Paella accompanied by EntreSuelos Tempranillo. From International Wine Cellar “(aged for six months in French oak): Inky purple. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of black raspberry and cherry, with pipe tobacco and floral nuances building with air. Fleshy, supple and sweet, offering bright red and dark berry flavors and a smoky, spicy quality. Fine-grained tannins help shape the a long, smoky finish. 90pts.”
And, for dessert Bizcochos Borrachos, Drunken Sponge Cake–topped with Nichols Farm Berries served with Bodegas Dry Muscat-This delightfully dry offering from Juan Gil really shines! Peach, pear, nectarine, lime and orange blossom dominate the nose and palate. Zippy acidity and a super lengthy finish make this a is fantastically food friendly wine.
And, no doubt Keogh will have her own surprises for us!
