WOW: Wine of the Week

Seeing Stars!
Line 39 Wines

Summer nights call for something special.  This is the time of lengthy talks outside on the deck, patio, porch and ShopUncorked.com has the official beverage of those nights:  Perelada Cava "Stars" Brut and Perelada Touch of Rose "Stars." AND, those nights can be served up over and over again at a price under $16 per bottle!

Product Description

"Since 1987, every summer Castillo Perelada hosts one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe. This cava is a tribute to all the artists who year after year honour us with their presence, shining like the stars of the Empordà sky under which they perform.
Wine has been made at the Perelada since the Middle Ages, as shown in several documents and parchments from the period to be found in the library. When Miguel Mateu bought this ensemble of monuments in 1923, one of his primary objectives was to revitalize the wine producing tradition, a tradition that is more alive than ever these days and which has incorporated the most modern technology to create wines that make full use of the nuances of the soils and vines of the Empordà." - Winery Notes

Castillo Perelada Cava "Stars" Touch of Rose N/V Tasting Notes

Pale pink in color.  Bright and limpid.  Its fine bubbles detach forming a crown around in the surface.  Its aroma is clean, floral and fruity, long-lasting and elegant.  Complex on the palate, very fruity, smooth, silky, with an excellent balance.
Blend: 90% Garnatxa, 10% Pinot Noir

WOW: Wine of the Week

Do the Deutz!
Line 39 Wines

ShopUncorked.com is CELEBRATING this week - just 6 days until Mother's Day and what better way than to celebrate with Deutz?!  And what better to do that with than with a bottle of Champagne?!  We are pleased to share that  ShopUncorked.com now has two offerings from the Deutz House.  Pop a cork and enjoy! 

Product Description

"Since 1838, Champagne Deutz, one of the oldest members of the former and prestigious Association of Grandes Marques, has been making champagnes of a distinctive style characterised by a perfect harmony of finesse, elegant vinosity and complexity. Sourcing from more 245 hectares (approx. 600 acres) of vineyards, amongst the finest of Champagne’s crus, as well as a rigorous selection of the choice bunches, allow Deutz to use only top quality grapes. The wines are slowly and carefully aged in the cool hush of the 3 kilometres of the House cellars which have been carved in the chalky soil of the famous historic village of Aÿ. The “Deutz trio Prestige” comprises three prestige cuvées, each with its very distinct personality. Cuvée William Deutz is made from the best pinots and chardonnays; Cuvée Amour de Deutz is composed uniquely of the finest chardonnays; finally there is Cuvée William Deutz Rosé. In each of these styles, Maison Deutz shows the full extent of its know-how and its attachment to precise, finely tuned wines. Deutz champagnes are distributed all over the world in first class restaurants, fine food shops and specialized wine shops." - Winery Notes

Deutz Brut Rose N/V Tasting Notes

"This has a many-hued color with strong pink tinges and fine bubbles. The nose is fresh and direct, with aromas reminiscent of cherries, blackberries, pomegranates and red currants. On the palate, the wine shows a deliciously full body that follows on perfectly from the nose. Its flavors remind one of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The finish has a pleasantly acidulous character that adds to the impression of finesse given by this romantic and well-balanced wine." - Winery Notes

Deutz Brut Classic N/V Tasting Notes

"The most 'classical' of the Deutz cuvees is far from mundane. The three different champagne grapes are blended in equal and unchanging proportions, ensuring it shows perfect harmony. Its golden color scintillates in the glass, with a fine stream of bubbles rising gracefully to the surface. The first impressions on the nose are mellow and reminiscent of acacia flowers, confectionery, Reinette apples and brioche. The wine then gains in volume and its silky texture reveals a successful balance between the freshness of Chardonnay, t he fruitiness and structure of Pinot Noir and a touch of vinosity from the Pinot Meunier." - Winery Notes
