It’s that time again . . .  Northshore Magazine’s BONS (Best of the Northshore) competition is on!

Our Cape Ann business community has shown great initiative to generate business during a very challenging time.  Creative ideas from our business owners have kept our community going, generating opportunity and providing employment when needed most.

Each year, Northshore Magazine offers a way to support our Cape’s economy.   The BONS competition helps drive business, engaging the participation of consumers who vote their favorites in several categories, from restaurants, to services, to retail shops (like ours)!  Local consumers, as well as the magazine’s readers and editorial staff all vote for the winners.  A win for one of our local businesses brings much-deserved recognition to Cape Ann as a unique marketplace north of Boston.

Please consider voting for Cape Ann businesses participating this year.  Having won BONS in 2019, for “Best Wine Selection,” I know first-hand how Savour has benefited.  Thank you in advance for your vote and continued support!

 Savour March – April Wine Machines Selections

Whites

Vinosia Fallanghina – Beneventano, Campania, Italy.  Fresh and fragrant with exotic fruits and floral aromas, with apple and pear notes on a background of minerality and spice.  Aged 3 months in stainless steel, with an additional 3 months aging in bottle.  Enjoy as an aperitif.  Pairs well with light appetizers and fried foods, such as Frutti di Mare - $17.99

Clos Henri Petit Clos Suavignon Blanc – Marlborough, New Zeland.  Organically farmed and produced by the famous winemaker of Sancerre, Henri Bourgeois, a fruity and elegant wine with hints of fresh-cut hay and white grapefruit.  This is a great middle-ground between the French and New Zealand style of Sauvignon Blanc.  Pairs well with goat cheese salad, asparagus soup and shellfish. 94 pts. Wine Enthusiast - $17.99

Brundylmayer Neuberger – Kremstal, Austria.  Neuburger needs sun, lime and loess, all of which the Vordernberg vineyards have in abundance. Powerful and concentrated. the apple and herb aromas of its youth give way to more exotic notes as the wine matures. - $19.99

Vietti Roero Arneis – Piedmont, Italy .  "Vietti's 2019 Roero Arneis is fresh, zesty and upfront. The Arneis grape reveals glossy, polished aromas in which citrus and peach are offset by a touch of fennel and mint.  An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish." (Winery notes) Pairs well with Pesto-sauced pastas, lighter fish dishes and vegetarian fare.  91 pts. Parker’s Wine Advocate - $24.99

Sartori Ferdi Garganega – The Veneto, Italy.  “Light gold in color, this voluptuous Veronese wine, crafted solely from Garganega, offers enticing aromas of pear and apricots, with sublte floral notes.  Rich and flavorful on the palate, with a long finish – pairs well with creamed-sauced pastas, white meats, and grilled seafood.” $17.99

Seehof Elektrisch Riesling Kabinett – Rheinhessen, Germany. Trocken, great value, asian pear with a crisp granny smith apple bite. - Limestone is key in Rheinhessen, and it’s what is believed to give the wines their glycerin-like viscosity, as well as the flash of acidity that keeps them from being too heavy. The precise balance achieved at Seehof is one of the things that make the wines such a joy to drink. Elektrisch is a crisp, relatively dry Riesling Kabinett that evokes peaches, honey, and zesty lemon-lime acidity. Pairs well with spicy food, especially Asian dishes.

Muffini Kratos – Cilento Fiano, Campania, Italy.  Organic Farming, Hand-picked, Stainless Steel. Soft, rich nose of green Mediterranean fruit and quartz-like stone. The palate reveals a silky, viscous texture (medium to full-bodied) with notes of saline, limestone, and starfruit. A wonderful wine that drinks well young but has proven to develop positively with a few years of bottle age. Pairs well with antipasti, seafood, white meats, grilled pork chops, hard and semi-hard cheeses. $21.99

Mellasat – Paarl, South Africa.  A white wine made from the red grape of South Africa, Pinotage.  Whole bunch pressing prevents the juice from obtaining color from the grape skins.  Barrel-fermented and matured in cask for 11 months on the lees, gives the wine a creamy, nutty character to balance the tropical fruit flavors of grilled pineapple and banana. Pairs well with Cobb Salad, lobster, avocado, and corn.  $24.99

  Rosés

Domaine Serge Laporte Sancerre Rosé, 2019 – Chavignol, Frances.  The grapes for Laporte’s rosé come from the argile-calcaire, which is excellent for Pinot Noir because it creates wines that are structured and long-lived. They practice organic agriculture with no insecticide and no chemical weed control.  This 100% Pinot Noir rosé is a pale, soft pink color. It has silky aromas of candied fruits (strawberry and citrus) with fantastic acidity and a long, lingering finish. Pairs well with shrimp, lobster, salmon, crab and vegan dishes featuring mushrooms.  $29.99

Domaine Zafeirakis Rosé – 2019, Thessaly, Greece.  100% Limniona, a native Greek variety, from Tyrnavos in the foothills of Mount Olympus.  The domaine is certified organic and has revived the almost-extinct Greek varietal, Limniona, known for its Pinot-like red-fruited and floral aromas and flavors. Made in a style to capture Limniona’s youthful freshness, this is a dry, flavorful rosé that shows bright cranberry and strawberry aromas and flavors with savory undertones of sage and Mediterranean herbs, suggestive of the hillsides of Greece.  Pairs well with steamed fish with oregano dressing, pasta with vegetables, mousaka, mozzarella and prosciutto pizza.  - $19.99

Lelièvre Gris de Toul Rosé – Lorraine, France.  Resulting from direct pressing of Gamay and Pinot Noir, the Toul Gray Wine is a true “Blanc de Noirs”. The absence of maceration with the skins differentiates it from a rosé wine. The two hours necessary for pressurization will be sufficient to give it a pink gold dress. Its aromas of small red fruits and its fresh, lively and long finish reconcile lovers of great wines with rosé wines. Pairs well with specialties of Lorraine, including quiche and shrimp dishes as well as spicy Thai - $19.99

Perla del Garda Delle Siepi Rosé  - Lombardy, Italy.  100% Rebo (a cross between Merlot and Teroldego developed by Rebo Rigotti c.1920), planted on slopes ranging from 492 to 820ft above sea level near Lake Garda  Bright and fresh with notes of underripe peach and nectarine, bright acidity and a rich, savory finish.  Pairs well with Chicken and pork dishes, featuring mediteranean flavors of tomato, herbs, and olives.  Excellent with feta cheese and tabouleh.  $19.99

Reds

La Kiuva Rouge de Vallée – Val d’Osta, Italy.  Predominantly Picotendro grape, the local version of Nebbiolo in the Valle D'Aosta: the most illusive, mysterious and smallest of Italy's regions: medium bodied, floral, juicy and filled with an array of violet and spicenotes. Fabulous value! Pairs well with salmon, artic char, dishes with herbs and mushrooms, and great with soft cheeses like Taleggio.  $19.99

Anna Maria Abbona Dogliani Dolcetto, Piedmont, Italy.  Anna Maria’s vineyard is the highest elevation in all of Dogliani. The original plantings, the work of Anna Maria’s grandfather in the 1930’s are still being utilized today, producing incredibly beautiful dark fruited gems with wonderful natural acidity thanks to the high elevation and cool, breezy nights.  The grapes are organically farmed and hand-harvested, and the wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks for ten months. In the glass, the Sorí dij But 2019 has an inky, ruby purple color, with flashes of crimson just at the edge. Aromas of sun-warmed wild blueberries, Damson plums, and crushed violets alternate with more fleeting suggestions of porcini mushrooms, black licorice, cracked peppercorns, and Earl Grey tea as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine is juicy, supple, and bursting with luscious black fruit flavors that echo the nose, including ripe amarena cherries, pomegranate, black mission figs, and cinnamon bark, all seasoned with a hint of sea salt minerality, and beautifully balanced with a thread of black raspberry acidity.   A medium-bodied red that pairs well with many foods, including tomato-sauced pastas, roast chicken, pork and lasagana.  $19.99

Qupé Syrah – Central Coast, CA (Qupé is a native American word for California Poppy) Deep purple color with aromas of blackberry, black raspberries, and hints of cola and leather.  Flavors are savory with a spicy smoky character, refreshing juicy acidity and a touch of French oak. The wine was aged for 16 months in François Frères Burgundy barrels, 15% new.  The Syrah grapes are sourced from various vineyards on the Central Coast starting as far south as the Santa Ynez Valley up to the Adelaida District in northern Paso Robles.  Pairs well with roast pork, duck breast with berry sauce and Cuban black bean soup.  $20.99

Ondarre – Rioja Reserva, 2015, Rioja, Spain. 2015.  This is a big, smoky, toasty Rioja red blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha and 5% Mazuelo wine grapes aged in American and French oak barrels. Dark berries, cherries with dried sweet tobacco leaf, dark spices, chocolate and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm. Ondarre is located in the town of Viana, about eight kilometres from Logroño, it is part of Bodegas Olarra Group founded in 1973 and has since been known as the Cathedral of La Rioja.  92 pts. Wine Enthusiast. Pairs well with cheesy pizza, grilled pork chops, roast chicken. $19.99

Chateau Pey-Bonhomme Les-Tours Bordeaux, France.  75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec – Right Bank, Cote de Blaye, indigenous yeast – Lush plum and mocha, firm tannins and balanced acidity, very dry. Chateau Peybonhomme is located in Bordeaux’s right bank of the Gironde, near Blaye. This organic/biodynamic vineyard is said to be on the best limestone and clay soils of the region.  Pairs well with roasted meats, especially lamb and tenderloin.  $19.99

Maverick Twins Barossa Valley, Australia GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre).   The 'Twins' is the optimum expression of varietal character from wines which are “twinned” from across different vineyards sites.  This wine has a deep purple color with aromas and flavors of wild berries, sweet pea blossom, rosemary, and black olive. With a medium-to-full body and a medium-to-long finish, this is a very Aussie GSM with ripe juicy berry flavors. The Twins wines are a blend of two vineyards, combining the dry heat of Barossa Valley grapes with cooler, high altitude Eden Valley fruit, the combination synergetic and electrifying. Warm, supple, brooding. Pairs well with roasted dark meat chicken, duck, and pork tenderloin.  $19.99

Menhir Pietra Susumaniello – Salento, Italy.  Susumaniello is one of the rarest grapes grown in all of Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Salice Salentino and the areas surrounding Brindisi, in Southern Italy’s Puglia region. Classic Susumaniello has a deep ruby hue and aromas of red berries and plums. The more concentrated version, such as this Pietra, has peppery notes as well as dark chocolate.  This big wine does best with richly-flavored meats, such as wild boar and prime rib.  Also great with a juicy burger on the grill!  $22.99

Tomaresca Torcicoda – Salento, Italy.  The Torcicoda Primitivo Salento IGT from Tormaresca sparkles in the glass in an intense ruby red and unfolds a complex bouquet, with aromas of ripe, plums and black cherries, followed by spicy notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. On the palate, this Primitivo is dry, gentle, balanced, of beautiful complexity, with present, soft tannins, pleasantly tasteful. Harmonious, appealing, with a lingering finish.  Aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels with malolactic fermentation, followed by ageing for 10 months in the same barrels. After bottling, the wine matures for another 8 months in the bottle.   Pairs well with cold cuts, savoury pasta, game, braised lamb leg or medium-ripe to ripe cheeses.  $21.99
