FRIULI

JERMANN PINOT GRIGIO 2016

IGT Venezia Giulia

Jermann’s PGs are notably more robust and complex

than is typical of this popular white wine style. You

can expect this to deliver delectable notes of peach,

apple and orange citrus along with some tropical

fruit tones. And, of course, the varietal’s zesty, food-

friendly acidity. This wine is a Vintages customer

favourite. Try it with a seafood stew.

ROERO ARNEIS 2015

DOCG

(Massucco)

TASTING NOTE: 100% Arneis. A beautifully floral

and subtly spicy nose, with layers of stone fruit,

hazelnut and flower blossom. The palate is dry and

fresh, with creamy intense fruit, a fine, bright acidity

and underpinned with a lovely mineral note. Score:

PIEROPAN SOAVE CLASSICO 2016

DOC

TASTING NOTE: Made with Garganega and Trebbiano

di Soave grapes, this is an enchantingly aromatic

Soave with pretty floral notes, white peach, baking

spices and suggestions of fresh herbs. Crisp acidity

keeps things taut and edgy. Pair with seafood or rapini

risotto. (Vintages panel, May 2017)

MOSEL

LOOSEN BROS. DR. L RIESLING 2016

Qualitätswein

“Mosel wine producer Ernie Loosen’s basic Riesling

is a great buy ... Slightly sweet, it has the tartness

and minerality so characteristic of wines from steep

Mosel vineyards ...” (S. Irene Virbila,

latimes.com

,

Nov. 19, 2015). Pair with spicy Thai noodles, breaded

calamari and jalapenos, or a green mango salad.

RUPPERTSBERGER GEWÜRZTRAMINER

HOFSTÜCK SPÄTLESE 2016

Prädikatswein

Gewürztraminer makes incredibly floral, fragrant

wines, and semi-sweet examples such as this deliver

intriguing flavours of lychee syrup, rosewater, citrus

peel and candied ginger. This will be a delight to

sip, nicely chilled, on its own or with ripe cantaloupe,

honeydew melon and creamy cheeses. It’s also a

great go-to for tough-to-pair foods such as German

pancakes, sushi with wasabi, or spicy ginger pork.

– REDWINE

BADEN

KILIAN HUNN PINOT NOIR 2014

Qualitätswein

TASTING NOTE: Baden is a rarity among German

wine regions in that it focuses on red wines just

about as much as white wines. The volcanic soils of

Tuniberg, where this wine was grown, produce

particularly intense versions of Pinot Noir. Ripe red

berries, vanilla and smoky notes introduce a sleek,

flavourful wine that’ll pair nicely with chicken

stroganoff, or schnitzel with mushroom gravy.
