Spring is definitely upon us! Although it’s not really out with the old, it is definitely in the new. We’ve scoured the nether regions of the wine world, and have stumbled across a few gems that we are pleased to offer by the bottle here at The Fearrington Granary! Come out and enjoy these new additions to our wine list any night of the week, or score a deal with our 1/2 off bottles of wine every Monday!
ZLATAN – Plavac: $38/bottle
All the way from Dalmatia in Croatia (I was just as surprised) comes this incredibly delicious, deep red that is infectiously good…if that makes any sense. The Plavac Mali grape is a genetic relative of Zinfandel, and if that kind of full fruit and peppery spice is your fancy this is one to try!
ALLAMAND - H Blend: $70/bottle
This is a huge blend of 40% Malbec and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza in Argentina with much of the deep fruit character of the respective varieties powering through the nose and the palate.
REYNOLDS FAMILY VINEYARDS - Napa Valley Chardonnay: $65/bottle
Classic Napa style Chardonnay, with deep exotic fruit and slightly more evenhanded approach with the oak influence not as buttery and creamy as the regal Ramey Chardonnay that is on our list from Sonoma.
COLLI DELLA MURGIA – “Tufjano”: $35/bottle
This organically farmed white is completely unoaked and incredibly aromatic. Loads of exotic citrus, daffodil, honey, and the slightest flashes of green tobacco. It’s relative dryness and brighter, fruit-tinged acidity make it a great pair for fish and simpler dishes with lots of fresh veggies!
