Carlo & Sylvia Piemonte Brachetto

Wine Maker Tasting Notes

“Floral and musky notes – with light nuances of forest fruits. Sweet, aromatic and balanced in the mouth, with an enjoyable savoury finish.”

Carlo & Sylvia Piemonte Brachetto is frizzante. The winemakers suggests serving Carlo & Sylvia Piemonte Brachetto as an apertif or with desserts and fruit.

We also have a Carlo & Sylvia Mosacto D’asti, a sparkling white wine, native to the same region. If you’re a dessert wine fan, Mosacto D’asti is a wine to consider.

Founders Dank Wood – Imperial Red India Pale Ale aged in bourbon barrels

founders-dank-wood

Founders Brewing Co. continues to come up with great brews that our customers can’t get enough of. This month we’re excited to feature the third release in Founders’ limited barrell aged series – Dank Wood, an Imperial Red India Pale Ale aged in bourbon barrels

Founders describes Dank Wood as the “perfect alchemy of wood and hops”, with tasting notes that include “rich caramel” and a “strong malt character”, with an added complexity from the bourbon barrel-aging.

Beer aficionados seem to agree, with Dank Wood sitting on Beer Advocate currently at over 4 out of 5 points.

Protea Dry Rosé & Cabernet Sauvignon

proteaFor June we’re featuring a pair of wines from South Africa’s Protea Wines, Dry Rosé and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Protea Dry Rosé is made of 63% Mourvedre, 20% Shiraz, 16% Cinsault, 1% Grenache from South Africa’s Darling, Swartland and Wellington regions.

The vineyard describes Protea Dry Rosé  as:

“a vivacious mouthful of juicy strawberry and cherry flavor.”

Protea Cabernet Sauvignon is described by the winemaker’s as:

“A beautiful deep ruby…immediately shows aromatic notes of blackberry, espresso and spice. On the palate the wine is full and juicy.”

Both of these Protea wines come in beautiful clear glass bottles with frosted artwork. Visit the Protea Wines website for ideas on making use of the bottle when you’re finished.
