Inboden’s Wines of the Season
Late Spring, Early Summer – 2019
For this upcoming season, we’re featuring six wines to pair with your favorite spring foods!
Mo Rose’ Poderi Morini – $13.99
A pink, Centesimino based, wine, made with the Charmat method. More than a wine is a real wild card matching, very fragrant and popping in the mouth, with roses, pomegranate and wild strawberries in the foreground that cool and ends up in a dry finish. Combine this puffy rosé with a simple, delicious dish like Tataki tuna wrapped in eggplant and you’ll be a happy gourmand.
Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc – $12.99
Stony aromas suggest crushed vitamin and lime. This is not thin but not really full either. Crisp flavors of green apple and citrus come with notes of bell pepper, while the finish is mildly green and briny tasting.
Le Vigne Cuore Della Vigna – $45.99
Stewed pomegranates and red currants are lifted by vanilla and baking spice on the nose of this blend that’s named after the “heart of the vineyard.” Rounded cherry and mulberry flavors show on the palate, which gains complexity from the licorice and red-flower flavors. This is easy drinking and boasts smooth tannins.
J Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Pinot Blanc – $16.99
The stainless steel fermented fruity Pinot Blanc is all about the Santa Maria Valley terroir. Straw yellow in color, notes of apples, citrus and cantaloupe on the nose and pears and light minerality on the palate with a medium body and crisp finish. Enjoy with salads, sushi or Thai food or in warm weather by itself.
Duck Pond Fries Family Cellar – $11.99
This light-bodied and pleasing Oregon Pinot Gris features lovely notes of green and white melon. Produced by the Fries Family, this Oregonian wine hails from the region of the Dundee Hills. Lots of fresh orchard fruit aromas and flavours. Great aperitif. Finishes with tropical fruit and lime. Pair with fresh seafood.
Grassini Sauvignon Blanc – $34.99
The bouquet expresses bright notes of honeydew pith, key lime zest, grapefruit, and white spring flowers. Ripe citrus and slate flavors balance with bright acidity on the palate, with hints of mandarin, white peach and apricots. This wine’s long finish, depth in structure, and mineral undertones pay homage to its Happy Canyon heritage
