Here in the North East, every one is excited that spring has arrived. Well almost every one. In the Muller household we are happy to have winter (ski season) last as long as possible. Then have it magically be 78 and sunny! ( Which of course never happens because we have to troll through mud season first.) This winter has bestowed beautiful ski conditions upon us. And in this season of fun, fresh air, and good ski food we have enjoyed many bottles of rich Cabernet ( to keep Il Divo happy) and an array of lush Brunello’s to compliment our pasta refuel dinners. But in the spirit of a new season, it is time to shift into spring veggies and, different ski’s….
Here are two delicious and organic wines to kick off your spring with:
SEPP MOSER GRUNER VETLINER 2011 KREMSTAL AUSTRIA: This fresh bright white wine is the pride of Austria. It’s yellow green color and zippy apple and citrus flavor is a great match for spring veggies and soft cheese. A nice wine to consider for your Easter dinner of ham and scollop potatoes. The Sepp Moser vineyard is a biodynamic farm that takes great care in pride in having the most earth friendly organic methods of farming. An amazingly great priced wine at about 14.00
3 DEGREES PINOT NOIR 2010 MCMINNVILLE OREGON: Always a food friendly choice of wine, the pinot noir has a bright cherry flavor and complex mustiness that is another great companion to spring dinners. The 3 Degree’s has been a big hit amongst my corporate clients. Everyone enjoying the lighter feel than a heavy cabernet and how it compliments a wide array of appetizers from cheeses, salmon and roasted veggies. Another earth friendly biodynamic wine. You can easily find this fantastic pinot for around 18.00.
