Greetings From CT Wine Authority


This week we are showcasing wines from two of the world's most distinctive wine growing countries, New Zealand and Australia.   We are pleased to feature the Oyster Bay Pinot Noir and the Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay.  As always, we invite you to join us at either of our locations this Saturday for a sample of this week's featured wines.

 

Although world renowned for some of the most celebrated Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand is gaining notoriety for other varietals.  Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling are just some of the up and coming wines from New Zealand.  The country's climate, warm during the day from strong sunlight and cooler at night with breezes from the sea, creates a great environment for the cultivation of grapes.  The maritime influence creates long and slow ripening periods that make New Zealand wines so unique. 

 

Yalumba is Australia's oldest family owned winery.  Our featured white wine is from the Yalumba Y Series which highlights single varietal wines that show exceptional quality at a great everyday price.  The Unwooded Chardonnay is a full bodied, fruit driven wine that accentuates the unique style and expression of South Australian wines.  It will pair perfectly with lightly grilled chicken or fish dishes and a summertime salad.

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavors.

Wine Spectator: Light, polished and highly perfumed, with lavender and spice overtones to the currant and cherry flavors, lingering easily. Drink now through 2014. 7,000 cases imported. -HS

Wine Maker's Notes: With every vintage we are working with more established vines from a steadily growing number of small vineyard blocks. Each site is chosen specifically for its uniform soils of moderate fertility providing for slow ripening and enhanced flavor development. With Pinot Noir, the fruit is always the primary focus, but of course we have many opportunities to influence it with traditional winemaking techniques to add subtlety and complexity. We use both barrel and tank fermentation and we also mature with a mix of new and older French oak.

Tasting Notes: Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant cool climate Pinot Noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavorful with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and gentle sweet fruit tannins to provide serious structure and length. more

For five generations spanning 160 years, Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made their Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.

Wine Maker's Notes: Our Unwooded Chardonnay style is captured by picking the grapes when the flavors are fresh and lively from the vineyards bearing Chardonnay fruit with lifted tropical flavors. In 2009 the grapes were harvested early to create a crisp and "food-friendly" wine. Cool processing and fermentation were used to retain the freshness of the grapes, and the wine was allowed some time on its yeast lees after blending to build some richness of flavor.

Tasting Notes: Pale straw with light green hues, the Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay displays aromas of honeydew melon and nashi pear, with hints of grapefruit and pineapple. The palate is silky with flavors of ripe nectarines, guava and grapefruit with a fresh acid finish. Serve with Thai chicken salad or gnocchi with sauteed prawns and a burnt butter sauce.more
