Wines of the month
Michel Fallet, Brut Rosé, NV – Champagne, France
The hot summer months are the perfect time to enjoy some pink bubbly and the Michel Fallet ‘Tradition’ Rosé is available nowhere else in the world outside of France but Cayman. With delicate flavours of strawberry and fresh bing cherry, it’s extremely versatile at the table and there is always something to celebrate!
S.A. Prüm, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett 2007 – Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany
Astonishingly, the Prüm family has been making wine in the Mosel region of Germany since the early 12th century. The shockingly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard on the banks of the Mosel river has the purest form of blue slate in the region and it undoubtedly translates into the wine. This Riesling has just a touch of residual sugar, with flavors of stone fruits like peaches and apricots. The high acidity makes for excellent food pairings or as an aperitif.
Masi “Masianco” Pinot Grigio & Verduzzo 2008 – Friuli, Italy
This blend of Pinot Grigio and Verduzzo is rich with lemon peel, melon, and tropical fruit flavors. The Veneto’s region winemaking specialty of apassimento (drying the grapes prior to fermentation to give more body and richness) is used with the native Verduzzo grapes. This is a great beach wine as well as a perfect partner for fresh grilled fish.
