Mix, mingle & cheers w/ other Barsha Wine Club Members!
Hi Barsha wine lovers! Cheers to 2017! We chose delicious organic wines to help kickstart a healthier new year. Classico has a nice zippy Vernaccia and a spiced Rhone blend. Riserva features a rich Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand and a supple carignane. Let’s toast to a healthier, happier new year!
Tenuta Le Calcinaie Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2015
This wine is made by the “soft crushing” of organically grown Vernaccia di San Gimignano grapes only. The fermentation takes place in steel tanks that are temperature controlled. Pretty Vernaccia, with good structure, balance, and charm; it is bright and zippy, with floral and citrus notes that are complimented by lively fruit.
Domaine Clavel Pic Saint Loup “Bonne Pioche” 2011
The Pic Saint Loup is a wild and limestone territory; It gives us this unique wine and gourmand, with the brilliant robe, and the racy aromas that recall the scents of the fragrant scrubland. A vineyard conducted in organic farming (more effort, listening and risks) with a deep concern for the respect of nature. Certified Organic.
Intense nose dominated by red & black fruit, followed by violet and resinous herbs.
Palate: black cherry & blackcurrant with sweet spices, white pepper. A tangy mouth, nourished by a final with tannins still young but very mastered.
Clos Henri 2014
Marlborough, New Zealand
From Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé in France to the Southern Wairau Valley of Marlborough, the Sauvignon Blanc variety takes a new dimension. The Bourgeois Family is devoted to making premium wine in a restrained and elegant style that captures the terroir and expresses it in its purest form.
Ripe tropical and citrus bouquet, with underlying flinty minerality. In the mouth the wine is textural and rich from the lees aging with layers of minerals, lime, orange blossom and profound acidity balancing this dry, extremely elegant wine. Organically grown.
Porter Creek 2013
Old Vine Carignane
Owned and operated by father and son, Porter Creek is a winery and vineyard estate situated just adjacent to Porter Creek (one of the major tributaries to the Russian River on Westside Road) in the most prestigious part of the Russian River Valley appellation. Porter Creek focuses on organic, hillside-grown, vineyard designated wines of grape varietals from the Burgundy and Rhone. Like previous vintages this wine shows dark ripe fruits on the nose and soft tannins, but with more concentration due to the extremely low yield of one ton per acre.
