Punggl Pinot Grigio – Alto Adige/Südtiro

Our featured wine this month comes to us from the north of Italy, the autonomous Alto Adige/Südtiro region. Bordering with Austria and Switzerland, this areas noted for distinct German and Austrian influences on the local wine makers. As a result of its varied history, Alto Adige/Südtiro grow a wide variety of grapes, many unique for Italy.

Nals Margreid’s Punggl Pinot Grigio is a fine example of the regions white wines. The winemaker claims it is the rich soils of Punggl Vienyard in the South Tyrolean village of Magreid, that give it its unique characteristics. The wine is aged half in oak barrels and half in steel tanks.

With a score of 92 points, Wine Enthusiast describes Punggl:

This is delightful, with amazing intensity and unique smoothness. Aromas of honey, peach and cantaloupe linger on the finish, with a fresh note of mountain flower. This is a simple wine, but a perfectly executed one.

Stop by Village Beer and Fine Wine today, and take home the taste of Alto Adige/Südtiro!

Palate Wrecker Hamilton’s Ale – Green Flash Brewing Co.

In 2002 San Diego, CA brewery Green Flash Brewing Company was founded. Specializing in brewing what they call “assertive and distinctive beers” Green Flash quickly started making waves. Village Beer and Fine Wine is proud to feature Green Flash Brewing Company’s Palate Wrecker, a complicated potent double IPA.

Green Flash describes Palate Wrecker:

Our Double IPA is the result of a complex and innovative double brewing process that is exclusively ours. After the first mash, we sparge the second round with hopped wort, adding a hit of kettle caramelization.

Fans confirm, this one pours a brilliant orange color, and packs an extreme hoppy punch. The folks at Beer Advocate rate Palate Wrecker “exceptional”, with a score of 93. The score is even higher over at ratebeer, with an overall score of 99.

GD Varja Barolo Albe

Looking for something exciting for your wine rack this month? How about a nice Barolo from Northern Italy? Village Beer and Fine Wine is proud to feature GD Varja Barolo, which is blended from grapes grown only in the Barolo commune. The wine maker describes Albe as one of their “most approachable and open Barolos” and one of their “best values”. While the winemaker states the wine ages well for 3 to 5 years, they also are quick to point out that it “is an absolute pleasure to drink now.”

Wine Spectator gives the 2008 GD Vajra Barolo Albe 94 pts:

The rose, strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors are beautifully displayed on the elegant frame in this pure and delicately wrought red, which shows harmony and depth.

With the last likely chance of snow behind us here in Rockville, its time to look forward.  And we have new spring seasonal beers arriving every week to help you out with that. Already on our shelves this month, we have Magic Hat Pistil Dandelion Ale and Sam Adams Spring Thaw variety 12 pack.

Magic Hat’s Pistil Dandelion Ale is a unique spring experience. The Vermont brewer describes Pistil as:

a refreshing, sun-inspired spring ale. A subtle floral spiciness from Apollo and Northern Brewer hops is balanced by earthy notes from dandelion leaves, while acidulated malts provide a smooth, slightly sour malty body.

Looking for a bit more spring seasonal variety? Pick up a Sam Adams Spring Thaw variety twelve pack and take home 6 different exciting beers: Alpine Spring, Double Agent IPL, Maple Pecan Porter, White Lantern, Irish Red and good ol’ Boston Lager.
