2011 Epica Sauvignon Blanc

From the winemaker – “Here’s to fresh starts. A burst of passion fruit, fig and green tea refreshes the palate and offers up a new perspective. Catch a taxi, change your whereabouts and enjoy the epic new adventures that lie ahead.

Best served with shellfish, poached or grilled seafood, salads and asparagus dishes.

2009 Chateau De La Huste Bordeaux

This blend of 90% Merlot – 10% Cabernet Franc was produced in France at the Chateau De La Huste family estate, owned by the Rulliers since 1860. The Chateau de la Huste’s vines are on one of the highest parts of Saillans. In old french, La Huste means the bump.

The grapes are picked by hand when they are fully ripe and put in baskets. Sorted minutely before and after full destemming. Fermentation in concrete tanks with built-in thermoregulation which guarantees better control of the fermentation process. Long vatting period (3 weeks) for a slow and gentle extraction of the phenolic agents. Malolactic fermentation in barrels. 12 to 15 months in new barrels (having matured 1 or 2 barches of wine). 20% of the barrels are replaced every year and toasting levels are selected for optimum enhancement of our wines’s fruit flavors.

Wine Spectator Review March 2012 Issue – “Subtle tobacco and roasted mesquite notes lead the way, followed by mulled plum and fig fruit and a fleshy but stylish finish that lets the fruit stretch out nicely.”

Great with rack or leg of lamb, lamb chops, roast pork, pork chops or tenderloin, or Parmigiano, Romano and other hard cheeses as well as cheddar and other savory, firm cheeses.
