THE WINES

 

Martin Zahn Pinot Blanc 2015 - Alsace, France

THE WINE'S STORY

Alsace is in the eastern corner of France and lies between the Vosges mountains

and the French boarder with Germany. The Martin Zahn operation is in Ribeauville. which is at the base of the Vosges Mountains. These mountains peaks reach up to 1400 metres, and provide valuable protection to vineyards from strong winds . Martin Zahn is a wine co-operative, under the ‘Cave de Ribeauville’ grouping of producers and was voted the best in France in 2016.

SOMMELIER NOTES

The hallmark of the Alsace white wines is their minerality, consistently they are fresh and flinty, and make claim to some of the most popular and food friendly wines in the world, crisp and light weight

Paccamora Nero D’Avola IGT 2014 – Sicily, Italy       

THE WINE'S STORY

The Curatolo Arini winery home is in Marsala on the western most part of the Sicilian coast. Marsala is quite magical, it is the home of the stunning fortified wines known as Marsala, which has a literally ancient history, having been occupied by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, and Spaniards. It was also the starting point for Garibaldi’s Italian unification crusade.

Curatolo Arini hold the added honour of being the oldest family owned Marsala produced in Sicily.

M+Q NOTES

Nero D’Avola is an indigenous red grape of Sicily that is mostly grown from inland vineyards at high altitudes, that are bathed in sunshine. The result is an elegant, medium bodied wine with notes of red cherries and plums with a hint of white pepper.

FOOD PAIRING
