Throughout June, flight night at SOHO Atlanta restaurant will feature the wines and flavors of South America! The tour continues on Wednesday, June 15th, and the wine and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, June 21st!
First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Jelu Pinot Noir from Neuquen – Patagonia. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,
“Medium red in color. The nose shows sweet blueberry and plum aromas with a hint of wild thyme. Juicy plum and mulberry flavors are balanced by fresh acidity with rich mineral notes coming from red soils.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Tintonegro Malbec from Lujan de Cuyo & Maipu Mendoza. The wine is described,
“Sourced from Mendoza’s Primera Zona of Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo the Mendoza blend is meant to showcase the exceptional value and approachable profile of Malbec. The wine’s soft, drinkable style is accompanied by light oak aging for additional complexity.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2012 Santa Ema Amplus One from Peumo, Cachapoal Valley, Chile. The winemaker says,
“Deep ruby red with violet nuances. Expressive and long, recalling red and black cherries, prunes and a touch of tobacco and pencil shavings. Well-structured and powerful, with well rounded tannins that lead to a voluminous and seductive finish.”
SOHO’s executive chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a tapas plate to be paired with each wine.
