Think Exotic. Gewurz, as it is known to its friends, tends to shy away from the traditional French cuisine end of town.
“Yes officer,” I’m Sotally Tober when penning these literary masterpieces! Ooops, Hic! Sorry. Apparently, we now know that's a family fun card game, cheers Google. Kind of actually goes well with the general image of Grenache. But time to Tober up. This is a little more serious than your typical cheeky strawberry and raspberry rendition of Grenache. This is more akin to a fabled old-vine Grenache, having heaps of texture and silkiness to be sipped and savored, even slightly chilled. Being so distinctive, we wrapped it in some rather attractive fine French oak. “Yes your Honour,” it does pair rather well with irreverent card games like “Crabs Adjust Humidity.” Ooops (Sp) Hic! Sorry again.
A pure expression of the varietal that started Brecon on its wildly successful Albariño ride. Aromatics veritably jump from the glass with hints of Sauvignon Blanc and day lily blossom (that edible flower). Being varietally true it's all citreen, with crisp fresh limes dominating the palate. So refreshing, yet the finish is surprisingly rich with a softness and biscuity toastiness, reminiscent of a classic champagne.
What's in a name, besides a great saga? Well, Brecon loves how this name rolls off the tongue and how it “oh so fits” for many occasions, even if the acronym is accidentally risque. Longtime Breconites might recall our debut vintage of this wine attracted 99 points. Our crumbley vino maker actually suspects this one is reminiscent of that original bottling. Lush dark fruit and layers of peppery spice. You might also notice there are two underappreciated varieties. This is quite the feral blend indeed. The perfect pairing at a lazy hammock hangout! The day will just fly by.
Like the lumen sucking darkness I once immersed myself in a lava cave in Iceland. Darkness you can absolutely chew on! OK, perhaps the chewy bit might be related to the wonderfully ripe tannins from this single vineyard expression. Amazingly, sunny Paso Robles can take some of these lesser known varieties to new dizzying heights. Bright velvety fruit, bags of varietal character, fantastic structure, and excellent mid palate fruit weight. No need to go Icelandic volcano watching to warm your tootsies. This Petit Verdot pairs perfectly with any mildy chilly or blustery evening.
