JULY WINE CLUB


We are in July already! With this new month comes a new artist for our wine club! You may know her!! Hailey has been working at The Breeze for a couple of months now and is doing our next few months of cards. Be sure to show her some support by following her Instagram @slothyink.


Let's get into it!


BORA TIER


MONTE BERNARDI ITALIA TI ADORO


Region: Tuscany, Sicily, Le Marche IT

Grapes: Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Malvasia Nera, Nerello Mascalese, Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero


‘Ti Adoro’ is this winemaker's ode to Chianti’s traditional fiasco wine, creating a kitchen sink of grapes from the region and intended to celebrate Italy. This is a sharing wine! Put in a litre bottle for just that; To be passed around the table with friends and family at dinner. 


This fun and easygoing wine is biodynamic, using all organic grapes. Blending from grapes across Italy, fermented together to make a light wine reminiscent of Chianti but with more black fruit and spice on the palate. Made to go with just about any food you put on the table, and interesting enough to keep you coming back for more. 



WEINGUT ROTERFADEN & ROSSWAG COOPERATIVE “TERRACES”


Region: Wurttemburg, Germany 

Grapes: Riesling, Kerner, Weissburgunder 


This is grown using biodynamic practices in Swabia, the hometown of winemaker Hannes Hoffman on steep, terraced vineyards of pure limestone. Everything, from cellar to vineyard, is done by hand, using only native yeast. The name “cooperative” comes from the vineyards being harvested & farmed by co-op members. 


This wine offers aromas of citrus and white flowers, with a medium body of lemon and fresh orchard apples, carrying a nice minerality to round it out at the end. Terraces carries a nice mouth feel and rich flavor, with a dry and refreshing finish. 


The minerality and freshness of this wine would make it the perfect pair with any seafood dish! 



LE MISTRAL TIER


NATURE’S REVENGE PET NAT ROSE 


Region: Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Grapes: Grenache


Let’s brush up on what a pet-nat is!Short for pettilant naturel, this is the oldest form of winemaking there is! The first fermentation happens au-natural and all on its own, with indigenous yeast that are present on the grape skins and air.  The second fermentation, and the one that makes the small little bubbles we all love, happens in tanks and finishes fermenting in the bottles. Unlike classic sparkling, like Champagne or Prosecco, there is no additional sugar or yeast added to create this fermentation. 


This vineyard has beautiful clay and lime soil with shale and sandstone underneath. All organically farmed! This landscape immediately is going to offer a nice freshness to any wine that is grown here. This rose has notes of wild raspberries fig jam and a hint of grapefruit, with a bit of clementine and white peach on the nose. Such a beautiful drinker with a nice silky mouthfeel with a nice, bright acidity. Finishes with a little bit of a salty breeze characteristic :)



FLOREZ KNOLL TOP 

Region: Santa Cruz, California

Grapes: Zinfandel


Florèz Wines was started by James Jelks in 2017. James grew up in the Santa Cruz area and was schooled in winemaking at nearby UC Davis. He worked in wineries all over the world for 10 years before returning home to make wine in the Santa Cruz area. He is farming some vineyards himself, always dry-farmed, and is also sourcing some fruit from organic and sustainable vineyards. He always works with native yeasts, does not use additives except for a minimal amount of sulfur at bottling, and does not filter the wines. The labels are Japanese-style woodcuts by James’s friend!



DIVISION WINE CHARDONNAY TROIS 

Region: Van Duzer Corridor

Grapes: Chardonnay 


These grapes come from the Draper selection clones brought from Meursault in the 1960’s. Grown on a biodynamic farm on the coast that experiences diurnal shifts (high daytime temperature and low nighttime temperature) which helps boost the freshness of the wine, while preserving the chamomile and orchard fruit tones often seen from this vineyard. 


This baby is quite acid and mineral-driven. Expect notes of Asian pear, nutmeg, white flowers, and cardamom, rounding out with some saline notes. 


This would be great with some summertime oysters!
