Looking for a big Pinot Noir worth breaking quarantine? Try Cerulean Pinot Noir!
The 2015 Cerulean Pinot Noir from the Columbia Gorge appellation of Washington State is a vivid, medium-bodied wine with notes of dark cherry, clove, and vanilla. Composed exclusively from grapes grown on their Acadia Vineyards estate in Underwood, and barrel aged for eighteen months, it displays a confident structure and concentration with hints of earth in its long finish.
Bold and meaty, is shows musky flavors of fig and plum with a background of underbrush and ample tannins that make it ideal for pairing with grilled meat or game.
Cerulean is a tough brand to find in Colorado, but worth the hunt. They also produce an engaging Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
April is Pinot Noir Month in Colorado. Celebrate this universally loved, food friendly style by stopping by or engaging delivery from better stocked, local, family-owned wine emporiums in your community, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods.
Hay Maker New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshing wine whose time has come.
This sustainable find from New Zealand is a surprising step up from local favorite Matua with its pale straw color and lifted notes of fresh grapefruit, guava and nettles, which lead to a lively palate of fresh, concentrated fruit flavors. Its bright acidity provides a crisp, mouthwatering finish.
Hailing from New Zealand’s legendary Marlborough region, Hay Maker’s well-crafted design really hits the spot this time of year. Try teaming it with roasted chicken, seared fish with Asian spices, or with a well-stocked charcuterie board.
Hay Maker is strong, dependable entry to the Northern Colorado wine scene.
There is a wealth of fantastic wines from the down under area of the globe. You can pick up a bottle of Hay Maker, as well as many other wonderful choices from New Zealand and Australia at large, local liquor stores, like Wyatt’s, who offer you a global approach to spirit and wine tasting.
