TELLER WINES

June Teller 12

 Whites

Dal Maso (Garganega), Italy               

Floral with an unusually rich mouthfeel. Layers of Apricots, peach, a touch of citrus balance out the finish.

 

Claude Val (Chenin Blanc, Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, Chasan, Mauzac, Sauvignon Blanc), Languedoc, France        

6 white varietals combine for a lush, aromatic and crisp wine. Vibrant, fruity and fresh. Acacia and tropical fruit on the nose and palate.

 

Casal Garcia (Vinho Verde Rose), Portugal                  

The winery was started in 1939 by Roberto Guedes. Crisp and refreshing, made with indigenous red grape varietals from the Vinhos Verdes region of Portugal. Beautiful dark pink color with equally beautiful flavors inside the bottle.

 

Spicy Goat (Riesling), Germany                   

This dry Riesling is from the world famous “Bockstein” Vineyard (bock=goat; stein=stone). IT is edgy and unique. Winemakers Nik Weis and Martin Hofstatter created this for hot people! Perfect with all oysters.

Chateau Turcaud (Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon), Entre-Deux-Mers, France             

This lively, refined wine is perfumed and bright. The 13 hectares of vines are grown on siliceous-gravelly soil, producing excellent grapes of remarkable structure and complexity. One of our Fleet Street staples for the past 17 years.

Gruet (Chardonnay), New Mexico                  

Albert Gruet left his home in France to come to America. Here, in the soils of New Mexico, he has managed to make the same sparkling wine as his family does in Champagne, France, using the traditional method. Aromas of intense notes of brioche, followed by green apples, lemon zest, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit. Enjoy with all your celebrations all year round!

 

** We recommend chilling your whites but taking them out of the fridge  30-40 minutes before serving for the flavors to open up in room temperature.

Reds

 

Heavyweight (Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Cab Franc), California    

Consistently a knockout, with blackberry and currant swift and lingering. Rich fruit flavors don’t faint or dodge. They’re straight ahead and swarming. Like the best heavyweights, the flavors come at you in combinations.

Ludovicus (Garnacha), Spain                  

Organic, delicious, boisterous. Exuberant black cherry/kirsch liqueur notes, medium to full body, terrific purity. Bistro style, succulent wine that goes with any food.

 

Fuso (Barbera), Italy       

Natural, non-filtered, declassified grapes make for an excellent vino. Cranberry and raspberry notes with zippy acidity and soft tannins. Enjoy on your porch or deck all year long, and also with lighter Italian fare.

Sposato (Malbec) Mendoza, Argentina                

One of the Sposato family’s flagship wines. A true, classic Malbec. Deep purple color. Exhibits a high intensity on the nose and palate of black fruits, raspberries and violets.

Domaine Mas Barrau (Cabernet Franc), Vinde Pays du Gard, France        

Made with organic grapes, with wild ripeness of sweet scented fruit twinned with an edgy woodland perfume. The palate is incredibly long and rich. Scrumptiously juicy fleshy flavors that are counterbalanced with a savory crunchy, rooty character.

Crusher (Merlot), California   

Another staple at the shop. These Merlot grapes are grown in the windswept California sunshine. Spicy, dark fruit flavors and a seamless finish. It’s no wonder this wine is consistently a customer favorite year after year.

 

  

 **We recommend chilling all of your reds down to 60-64 degrees before serving.
