Savour Saturday Wine tasting – Germany and Austria

THIS SATURDAY, August 13, 2 – 4 pm COMPLIMENTARY

FINE WINE TASTING @ SAVOUR WITH OWNER KATHLEEN MORGAN, FEATURING FAVORITES OF GERMANY AND AUSTRIA

Regular customers probably know how much I love Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. In fact, I will be pouring 2 of my all-time favorite Rieslings, one from Austria, Lagler Smaragd, and a 2015 (yes, aged) Riesling from one of the top Riesling vineyards in the world, Graacher-Himmelreich (translated – “Kingdom of Heaven”), made on the German estate of Eifel-Pfeiffer. Most people do not know that Riesling is the most age-worthy varietal, which is why I drink mine aged. Ageing up to 30 years creates a stony, complex, honeyed and heady wine. Drink this one cold on a summer day or put it away for Thanksgiving dinner – nothing better!  Along with these two gems, we have my favorite rosé, made from Austrian Zweigelt, a glorious sparkling Grüner Veltliner, a German red, perfect for chilling, a zesty German Pinot Gris, value-priced at $14.99, and a classic still Grüner from Kremstal, Austria. These wines are often overlooked so don’t miss the chance to come down and try something new on “the road not taken.”

WINES

Stift Klosterneuburg Grüner Veltliner Brut NV, Austria

Varietal: GrünerVeltliner Alc.12%

The Klosterneuburg wine estate was founded in 1114, when, legend  has it, during the wedding, his bride’s wedding veil was blown off by a gust of wind; Leopold vowed to build a monastery where the veil was found. That spot became the Klosterneuburg Monastery, a religious and cultural center, and the location around which Stift Klosterneuburg has been making wines for more than 900 years. In the modern era, Stift Klosterneuburg is a pioneer in sustainability and climate protection; in 2009 it became Europe’s first carbon-neutral winery. The Grüner Veltliner Brut pours nearly clear with frothy, medium-sized bubbles. Aromas of green apple, pears, and lemon zest mingle with a subtle white pepper note. On the palate, pear and apple mingle with peaches and give way to a dry, yeasty finish. 

Pairs well with seared tuna and sushi. $19.99

Hermann Moser Grüner Veltliner Gebling, Kremstal, Austria

Varietals: Grüner Veltliner Alc.12.5%

Weingut Hermann Moser is run by Martin and his wife Carmen Moser, the 26th generation of the family producing wine from the family vineyards. The estate is nearly 400 years old and is located in the village of Rohrendorf in the Kremstal wine-growing region of Lower Austria. Martin is a member of the Traditions Weingüter Österreich association (Traditional Austrian Wineries Association). The association was founded in 1992 and is composed of 23 growers who have together created a single level classification of 52 of their best single vineyards in the four Danube regions: namely, Kremstal, Kamptal, Traisental and Wagram. On the nose, this wine is fruity and flowery, with notes of spice and citrus. It is crisp and luscious on the palate. 

Pairs well with vegetarian dishes, pork, chicken, and cured meats. $21.99

Villa Wolf 2020 Pinot Gris, Pfalz, Germany

Varietal: Pinot GrisAlc.12.5%

Founded in 1756, the Villa Wolf winery was a successful and highly regarded wine estate for more than two centuries.  Ernst Loosen, owner of Dr. Loosen, took over the winery in 1996, launching a dramatic revival of the estate’s quality and reputation. The Villa Wolf varietal line-up features exceptionally affordable, classic Pfalz wines made from traditional grape varieties. The Pfalz (aka ‘Palatinate’) region is in the Rhine River valley in southwest Germany. Because it is one

of the warmer and drier areas of cool-climate Germany, wine grapes do quite well here, where it is possible to achieve full ripeness in every vintage. The goal at Villa Wolf is to produce wines that express the pure, authentic terroir of the Pfalz. Made in the classic style of the Pfalz, Villa Wolf Rieslings are drier and more full-bodied than Mosel Rieslings, with fully ripe fruit flavors and a characteristic stoniness in the aroma.   

The Pinot Gris grape variety was first vinified separately in the Pfalz region, and Germany is second only to Italy in acres planted. Villa Wolf Pinot Gris is made in a combination of large, neutral oak casks for depth and complexity; concrete tanks for a rounded texture; and stainless steel to preserve freshness and enhance the vibrant fruit. It is made in a full-bodied, dry style with fresh, unoaked fruit and a crisp texture. 

Pairs well with salmon, chicken, pork or savory vegetarian dishes. $14.99

Weingut Lagler 2020 Ried 1000 Eimerberg Smaragd Riesling, Wachau, Austria

Varietals :Riesling Alc. 13%

The Lagler family has lived on the beautiful estate at Rote Torgasse since 1789. Yet it was only in the late 1970s that the Laglers decided to go from winegrowing to winemaking. Instead of selling his grapes, Karl Lagler began producing first class, fruit-driven wines from old vines planted on terraces of marble, gneiss, and granite combined with natural farming techniques, yielding excellent results. All work is done by hand, including harvest. Today, Karl Lagler Jr is crafting some of the most exciting wines of this area in the family’s tradition of producing wines of purity and definition that are respected worldwide. This Riesling has wonderful ripe apricot and plum notes on the nose with a lime zestiness. On the palate, it is round and fruity, with ripe, mild acidity.

Pairs well with pork, shellfish, spicy food, and cured meats. $37.99

Eifel-Pfeiffer Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Feinherb 2016, Mosel, Germany

Varietal: RieslingAlc.10.5%

Eifel-Pfeiffer has been dedicated to the cultivation of wine, especially Riesling, since 1642. The winery’s vines grow in an ideal microclimate in the steep slate slopes that slope down to the Moselle. The fine slate, mineral weathering soils offer wonderful conditions for the Riesling. Heinz Eifel’s decades of experience and the inspiration of oenologist Anne Eifel-Spohr combine to form a future-oriented family winemaking team. Rieslings with an individual character are the result of this philosophy. This almost clear colored Riesling from the Mosel opens with a gentle pineapple bouquet. On the palate, it is medium bodied, nicely balanced, round, and juicy. Flavors of Asian pear and lemon blend with hints of minerality and a dash of white pepper. The finish is off-dry and nicely refreshing. 

Pairs well with Asian foodchicken, and cured meats. $14.99

Schloss Gobelsburg Cistercien Rosé, Austria

Varietals: Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Pinot Noir Alc. 12%

SCHLOSS GOBELSBURG, a Cistercian monastic estate, is one of the oldest wineries in the Austrian Danube area with a documented history that dates back to 1171. All the vineyards are located on slopes and terraces around the valley of the river Kamp near the town of Langenlois and the village of Gobelsburg. The valley of the Danube and its side-valleys belong to the cool climate areas of Austria. Some vineyards are even too cold for red wine making. Zweigelt, St. Laurent, and Pinot Noir grapes grown in the cooler sites of Gobelsburg and Langenlois are used for the Cistercien Rosé. The Rosé CISTERCIEN shows a lovely fresh pink and offers a clear and fresh, subtle fruit and lovely zesty bouquet of red and white fruits. Medium-bodied, with lovely acidity and zippy on the palate. The Cistercien Rosé drinks like a white wine and is a lovely pairing for everything that asks for freshness and more acidity. Pairs well with shrimp, crab, lobster, salmon, and crab cakes. $18.99

Roterfaden & Rosswag Co-op “Terraces” Red 2019, Germany

Varietals: Lemberger, Trollinger, Regent, Schwarzriesling Alc.12.5% 

The Roterfaden & Rosswagred blend comes from grapes grown in terraced vineyards well over 1,000 years old covering nearly 15 acres. This site in southern Germany is also an official nature preserve. The Roterfaden winery joined with the co-op of the town of Rosswag to work these terraced vineyards to make this unique red blend.   Pairs well with salmon, roast chicken, and pork and vegetarian dishes featuring mushrooms. $29.99

 While you’re in the store, take a look at some of the new beers we have for summer: a citrusy saison from Cambridge Brewing Company called Working Class Hero; an NEIPA from Riverwalk Brewing called Hit of Haze, and one of the best Belgian-style white beers this side of Belgium, Allagash White — made with coriander and curaçao orange peel, it’s lovely on a hot summer day.

WINES

J. Hofstätter Pino GrigioAlto Adige DOC, Italy

Varietal: Pinot GrigioAlc.13.5%

Alto Adige is one of Italy’s smallest wine growing regions, and the northernmost, bordering on Switzerland and Austria. It has become one of Italy’s top white wine producing areas, and J. Hofstätter is its largest family estate winery. The HofstätterPinot Grigio pours a bright straw yellow and has an attractive aroma of citrus fruits, peach, honeydew melon, and pear; it is medium rich, fruity, well-structured, and direct on the palate with orchard fruit flavors and tangy, fruity acidity on the finish. 

Pairs well with pasta and fish dishes. $21.99

Domaine Marcel Deiss2020 Alsace Complantation, France

Varietals: Alsace white AOCAlc.13.5%

Located in Bergheim next to Ribeauvillé, in the heart of the Grand Cru area, the Marcel Deiss estate was founded in 1947. Currently managed by Mathieu Deiss with the help of his father, Jean-Michel, the estate aims for quality based on terroir rather than on cloned grape varieties; the winemakers adhere to biodynamic methods of very low yields and agroforestry. This wine comes exclusively from the vineyards of Domaine Marcel Deiss. It is made with the 13 varieties of grapes that represent the Alsace AOC, including Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Sylvaner, and Muscat.The wine expresses the depth of the Alsatian terroir. Notes of lemon, white flowers, pineapple, and yellow peach mix on the nose. On the palate it is lively and remarkably fruity, full and ripe but still fresh. Pairs well with a wide variety of dishes, including seafood, chicken, and pork. $27.99

Steinbock Riesling

Varietal: RieslingAlc.11%

The owners of the Hofstätter winery in Italy’s Alto Adige have a passion for Riesling, which is why in 2014 they took the

opportunity to revive the traditional Weingut Dr.

Fischer on the Saar River in Germany.This Riesling is straw yellow in the glass. The wine shows pineapple and citrus aromas on the nose. It is soft and refreshing on the palate, with striking minerality and an elegant body, and finishes off-dry. 

Pairs well with fish dishes, salads, and sushi. $17.99

Chateau Puech-Haut Argali Rosé, Languedoc, France

Varietals : 60% Grenache, 40% Cinsault Alc. 13%

Languedoc is one of the most exciting regions in France right now. Château Puech-Haut is a prestigious estate in the eastern Languedoc producing top quality wines for very reasonable prices. The wines from Puech-Haut are rich and lush but also show the earthy and mineral character of the rocky clay-limestone soils of the region. They benefit from both its proximity to the Mediterranean and the rugged, mountainous interior. The Argali Rosé pours a pale pink color and has a complex citrus nose. It offers clean, crisp notes of white peach, strawberries, and hint of flowers on the palate. Lovely as an aperitif. Pairs well with rice dishes, Mediterranean cuisine, salads, and vegetables.$24.99

Averaen 2019 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir AVA, Oregon

Varietal: Pinot Noir Alc.13.6%

The seeds of Averaen winery were sown at the International Pinot Noir Celebration in 2013 in the Willamette Valley. The winemakers from Banshee Wines in Sonoma were struck by the similarities between the cold, foggy Sonoma coast and the Willamette Valley, and realized making high-quality Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley would be far less expensive than in Sonoma. The first Averaen Pinot Noir was released in 2015 to high praise, and they have continued to produce fine Pinot Noir ever since. The 2019 Averaen Pinot Noir is juicy, with flavors of dark cherry, cranberry, and blackberry. Black tea, anise, blood orange, and vanilla accents add complexity. The texture is ripe and plush with a line of acid running through. Pairs well with seared salmon or tuna, mushroom dishes, pulled pork, and barbecue. $22.99

I Greppi Greppicante Bolgheri Rosso 2018,Tuscany, Italy

Varietals: 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon Alc. 14%

Bolgheri is a relatively young yet prestigious Italian appellation located in the Maremma on the Tuscan coast and named after a town in the north of the region. It is known mainly for deeply colored, supple yet age-worthy red wines, usually based on the Bordeaux grape varieties. Until the 1970s, the area was regarded elsewhere in Tuscany as a swampy zone producing nondescript white wines and rosés, and better suited to other farming, in contrast to the prime Tuscan vineyards further up in the hills. Then in 1978, in a blind tasting arranged by Decanter magazine, a wine from Bolgheri beat out several Bordeauxs. Ever since, the reputation of the area has grown. The Greppicante Bolgheri Rosso has aromas of currants and blackberries and hints of rosemary and flowers on the nose. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with lush fruit, rich meat, and leather flavors and a long finish. 

Pairs well with foods in rich sauces, stews, duck, veal, and mature cheeses.$29.99

 While you’re in the store, take a look at some of the new beers we have for summer: a citrusy saison from Cambridge Brewing Company called Working Class Hero; an NEIPA from Riverwalk Brewing called Hit of Haze, and one of the best Belgian-style white beers this side of Belgium, Allagash White — made with coriander and curaçao orange peel, it’s lovely on a hot summer day.

Savour Saturday Wine tasting – Mexican Wines

THIS SATURDAY, July 23, 2 – 4 pm
COMPLIMENTARY
FINE WINE TASTING @ SAVOUR WITH MAX MURPHY, OWNER TOZI IMPORTS

We at Savour are very excited to introduce you to some incredible wines from Mexico with the owner of the importing and distribution company, Tozi Imports. But first, a great story . . . Tozi was born out of love. First, sommelier Max Murphy fell in love with a woman from Mexico. When he visited Mexico with her, he fell in love with the wine. Max and Kenya married in Mexico, and Max chose Mexican wines to serve at the wedding. When Max’s family and friends clamored to buy the wedding wines back home, the idea for a wine importing business was born. Come meet Max and let him introduce you to some of his favorite wines.

                                                             — Kathleen


The first three wines come from the state of Querétaro in Central Mexico, 6,500 feet above sea level. This is the southernmost wine region in the Northern Hemisphere. The area is extremely hot, dry, and has a 40-degree diurnal shift. Central Mexican red wines tend to have a lower ABV (alcohol by volume) and higher acid than wines from Baja. This makes them wonderful food wines!

NV Viña Doña Dolores Brut Reserva 

Varietals: 50% Macabeu, 50% Xarel-lo

Made using the traditional champagne method, this lively sparkling wine sits for 18 to 24 months on the lees, followed by 1 year in the riddling rack and 1 year of bottle aging. It has strong stone fruit and tropical fruit notes with a crisp, dry finish. $17.99 – great bargain for such a labor-intensive wine!

2019 Vivante Tinto

Varietal: Malbec

Fermented in stainless steel and immediately bottled, this wine has notes of bright red cherries, plums, and hibiscus. It is fruit forward and very barbeque friendly. Can be served slightly chilled. $14.99

2018 Viña Doña Dolores Cuatro Regiones Red Blend

Varietals: 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 10% Malbec, 3% Marselan

Aged for 16 months in American and French Oak, this wine is meant to represent all of Central Mexico. The winemakers source grapes from the four wine-producing states (hence Cuatro Regiones) of Querétaro, Guanajuato, Aguascalientes, and Zacatecas. This is a medium to full-bodied red blend with complex flavors of dark red and black fruits, leather, and tobacco. $17.99

These next three wines come from the Valle De Guadalupe in Baja. This is Mexico’s version of Napa Valley and is where 80% of all Mexican wine is produced. There are more than 150 wineries, and the valley sits 15 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean with low hills to the west and high hills to the east. It is classified as a Mediterranean climate and sits at a point where two tectonic plates meet — the soil is a mix of sand, clay, and granite.

2017 Vinos Lechuza Chardonnay

Varietal: Chardonnay

Fermented in stainless steel, this wine sits for 9 months on the lees. It also undergoes partial malolactic fermentation, resulting in a pleasant creamy texture, without the use of oak. The lees provide brioche notes along with honeydew melon, pineapple, and green apple. $34.99

2018 EmevéArmonia de Tintos Red Blend

Varietals: 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 25% Shiraz

This wine sees 12 months in new French oak. Full-bodied with notes of blackberries, blueberries, and plums, it also has a pleasing vanilla finish and is very crowd friendly. $29.99

2019 Monte Xanic Cabernet Sauvignon

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Aged for 12 months in second use (more neutral) French oak barrels, this is a medium to full-bodied Cabernet with notes of plum, cassis, and baking spice with soft, velvety tannins. $29.99


Now, a word about beer . . .

While you’re in the store, take a look at some of the new beers we have for summer: a citrusy saison from Cambridge Brewing Company called Working Class Hero; an NEIPA from Riverwalk Brewing called Hit of Haze, and one of the best Belgian style white beers this side of Belgium, Allagash White — made with coriander and curaçao orange peel, it’s lovely on a hot summer day! Ann Cortissoz, our new beer expert, is now making our selections and can help you find exactly the right choice for the beach, a summer gathering on the deck, or a barbeque in the backyard. What a great way to celebrate this joyful season on glorious Cape Ann!

THIS SATURDAY, JULY 16, 2 – 4 PM COMPLIMENTARY FINE WINE TASTING @ SAVOUR WITH OWNER KATHLEEN MORGAN

There’s something about summer that makes us want to drink pink wine. I don’t mean that sickly sweet stuff that some of us remember from the ‘70s and ‘80s. Modern rosés are crisp, light, flavorful, and dry. And they are perfect for a summer afternoon or evening on the porch, the beach, or the boat. I’ve picked out five rosés for this week’s tasting, which means that along with the four rosés available to taste on our wine tasting machine, you’ll be able to taste nine rosés on Saturday. Come down and find your favorite! — Kathleen


Wines

Casa Canevel Proseco Rosé DOC, Treviso, Italy

Varietals: 85%Glera,15 % pinot noir, Alc. 11%. Located in the finest region for the production of Prosecco, Valdobbiadene, Casa Canevel (meaning small cellar) graces the table with this shimmering rosé spumante. Casa Canevel produces refined sparkling wines from the local Glera grape. The rosé pours a light, golden pink and is fizzy in the glass. Aromas of strawberries, grapefruit, and apples are followed by an elegant acidity and fruit nuances on the palate. Perfect as an aperitif, the wine also pairs well with hors d’oeuvres, fish, and poultry. $17.99

Chateau de Campuget Rosé, Nimes, France

Varietals: 30%Grenache noir, 70% Syrah Alc.13% The Château de Campuget is above all the adventure of a family from the North who came to settle during the World War II, not far from the Mediterranean… in the Costières de Nîmes. Since 1942, a single objective of Chateau Campuget has been to produce Great Wines of the Rhone Valley while respecting terroir and identity. The rolled pebbles of the Rhône, the sun of the South, the Mistral, the Syrah, the Grenache are some fundamental elements that make up the identity of Campuget. Domaine de Campuget dates back to 1640, but they make a very modern rosé. Its color is peony pink, with aromas of red berries and currants. On the palate, raspberry and strawberry flavors blend with a crisp acidity to make a very refreshing glass of wine. Pairs well with picnic foods and anything from the grill. $14.99

Domaine de Capreoles Cossinelle, Beaujolais Villages, France. Varietal: Gamay Alc. 13% Capreoles means vine tendrils, and references the history and tradition of the vertical growth of the vine, the connections between growers and of the relationship to the earth, which is solid granite under the vineyard soil. This family-owned vineyard practices organic farming, and they named their rosé after the ladybugs (cossinelles) their daughter found in the vineyard during their first harvest. The wine is pale pink, with delicate peach and strawberry notes on the nose and palate. Pairs well with summer salads, seafood, and soft cheeses. $19.99

Herdade do Rocim Mariana 2021, Alentejo, Portugal

Varietals: Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Alc.12.5%

Herdade do Rocim is located in the Lower Alentejo region of southern Portugal. The estate was founded in 2000 with the aim of focusing primarily on native varietals. Since purchasing the estate, Catarina Vieira and Pedro Ribeiro have completely regenerated the vineyards and built a new, state-of-the art winery. They planted higher-quality varietals, indigenous and local varieties, and also some international grapes, such as Syrah and Cabernet. They have also recently started to produce olive oil from 90-year-old trees, with the intention of recapturing the traditions of the region. The organic Mariana rosé is a delicate pink color, with red and blue berries on the nose and palate. It is medium-bodied and dry, with an earthy finish, and has good tannic structure, and balanced acidity. Pairs well with fish, shellfish, and pizza. $17.99

Domaine de Fontsainte Gris de Gris Rosé, (Kermit Lynch Selection) Corbières, France. Varietals: 90% Grenache Gris, 5% Carignan, 5% Mouvèdre, Alc. 12.5% The first vineyards at Domaine de Fontsainte, in the Corbières appellation, were planted by the Romans. Artifacts found in these vineyards, such as an old coin dating from the time of Marcus Agrippa in 25 A.D., are a testament to its antiquity. The original domain was built around a thermal spring, which was later named for the local, twelfth-century patron saint, Saint Siméon; hence Fontsainte—the saint’s fount. Yves Laboucarié’s family has been making wine here since the seventeenth century. The Fontsainte vineyards surround the hamlet of Boutenac in the area known as “The Golden Crescent.” This swath of land is one of the sunniest in the appellation of Corbières, enjoying south-southeast exposure, and protection from the cold, northeast winds by a large 500-hectare forest. The cooler sea breezes from the Mediterranean help this sun-soaked terroir achieve balance as well. A full-bodied and lush wine, brimming with strawberry summer fruit, but dry and crisp. Pairs well with shrimp cocktail and salad Niçoise. $17.99

Friday, July 15th at Minglewood Harborside we are suggesting a $5 cover to see DJ Vito perform at 9pm. The money raised at the door will entirely go to the Silva family 

The Silva family have recently been dealt a horrible blow. A fire at their family home recently and then a robbery at their local business. Thankfully everyone is safe but they need help. Yellow sub has been a staple in this community for years and the Silva family have always stepped up for others in times of need. Now it’s our turn to help them. Friday, July 15th, we are suggesting a $5 cover to see DJ Vito perform at 9pm. The money raised at the door will entirely go to the Silva family. A link will be provided for those who would like to contribute to their go fund me. Thank you ✌️
