Double Tasting: "Spring Has Sprung"

April 27, 2019, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Spring is a transitional season for wines. Our palates tend to prefer lighter wines in the spring and many people think this can only be accomplished by switching to white wine. Remember, it’s not the weather that dictates the wine so much as the food. You won’t want to miss our favorite new Oregon & French wine picks, perfect to kick off the coming warm, Spring weather and the barbeque season!

2017 Ferraton “La Tournée” Blanc
Pays d’Oc, France
From a renowned producer of the Rhône valley, La Tournée is a typical bistro wine made of Vermentino and Viognier grown in the warm and sunny Languedoc. After being harvested at night to protect grapes from oxidation and preserve freshness, the wine was aged in vats on fine lees to bring some complexity. The nose shows aromas of citrus and grapefruit and the palate is fresh, fruity - ripe yellow fruit - and with good acidity.

2017 Ferraton “La Tournée” Rouge
Languedoc, France
From a renowned producer of the Rhône valley, La Tournée is a typical bistro wine made of Syrah and Grenache grown in the warm and sunny Languedoc. The grapes were blended together and then aged on the lees to add complexity and depth to the wine. It is a silky smooth red where dense dark fruit leads the way, with leather and spice providing a nice solid framework for the fruit. Medium-bodied, soft tannins and nice long finish. Excellent wine to drink with a beef burger!
