Notes from the Wine Cellar – Montinore “Borealis”
Certified Organic -39% Gewurztraminer, 37% Muller-Thurgau, 19% Riesling, 5% Pinot Gris
It’s very rare that we feature a domestic wine, but this Alsatian inspired blend from the Willamette was too delicious to pass up. A great wine for spring or summer, the aroma practically covers the full fruit spectrum with notes of peach, yellow apple, pineapple and with bright citrus popping out, accented with whiffs of lychee and fresh rose petals. On the palate it starts with a soft, slightly sweet expression of ripe peach and pear balanced with a citrus zing, which evolves to a delicious long, crisp finish of tropical and stone fruit.
A perfect pairing for our spicy soft shell crab with green garlic curry! Available by the glass or bottle.
