SOHO is featuring the amazing and diverse wines of the Southern Hemisphere!  Join us in celebrating  wines from Australia this week, with accompanying tapas from our Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler.  This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday November 9th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through November 15th .


First, SOHO will pour a 2015 Howard Park Chardonnay from Margaret River, and offers the following tasting notes,

“Vibrant in appearance and pale lemon in color. An array of subtle and intricate notes of dried pear, honeysuckle, lemon/lime citrus oils, peach, minerals, nuts and caramel greet the nose. On the palate the wine is silky in texture with a lemon curd tart zest and richness. The talc-like minerality, fine acidity and guiding oak add length, definition and structure.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz/Mourvedre from Barossa Valley.  The wine is described as,

“Expansive (for a Bin 2!). Only a fleeting suggestion of background oak.  Tea-leaf/talc tannins… fathered by Shiraz or Mourvèdre?! Savory and charcuterie flavors charmingly mesh with those reminiscent of Jamaican raisined dark chocolate.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Fable Mountain Vineyards Night Sky from McLaren Vale.  The winemaker says,

“It is crimson in color and exhibits aromas of carnation, rose spice and fynbos with hints of jasmine and under tones of herbs. On the palette there is soft cherries, fragrant tannins and red berry fruits with a smooth lasting finish.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
