WHINE TIME with Alicia Mertz

Friday, August 7th

Rojac RefoskKiralyudvar Tokaji Furmint Sec: Clean, crisp, and like nothing I've ever tasted! Fresh peach and apricot on the nose, moving to honeysuckle on the palate. This wine shows botrytis characteristics and will surely perk up those taste buds. Drink on a special occasion or pair with foie gras, smoked caramelized salmon, or even a classic custard.

Slavcek Pinot Grigio: Arguably one of the most interesting Pinot Grigios at Red - hand harvested fruit with notes of white peach & herb with Earthy undertones, dry and crisp with rich minerality. This wine could easily be a "porch pounder", also trying pairing shrimp & quinoa stir fry or white fish.

Rojac Istra Refosk: The perfect everyday drinking wine! Bright cranberries, brambled berry notes, medium body, and mild tannin. Perfect on its own, or try it with lamb burgers or grilled veggie kabobs.

Kavaklidere Cankaya: The favorite white wine of Turkey! Fresh white peach blossom on the nose and white fruits on the palate. Well balanced, mouth filing, and a lively finish. This wine matches perfectly with seafood salad, grilled chicken dishes, or light tomato sauce pastas.

Kavaklidere Yakut: The favorite red wine of Turkey! Bright cherry and strawberry on the nose, and again reflected on the palate. Full bodied with strong, ripe tannin and a hint of spice on the long finish. Perfect with Caribbean Jerk chicken, red meats, and hearty stew.
