The recent chilly bite in the air in Atlanta has made us want to hibernate (with wine of course) as we enter into holiday season mode. Fall is such a great time of year here, with a few patio days sprinkled in for optimal foliage watching, coupled with wine drinking!
Our wine feature this next two weeks illustrates the perfect drinking choice: A lovely Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from New Zealand, and a complex Cab from Australia. The tapas pairings are on point as well, and we would encourage you to stop by to say hello, and take a moment to enjoy life before the holiday craziness hits. We look forward to seeing you!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, November 14th, will last two weeks, and the wines and their tapas will be available through November 27th.
First, SOHO will pour a Esk Valley Hawkes Bay Chardonnay ‘16 from Hawkes Bay, N.Z.. The winemaker offers,
“This is a full bodied yet elegant style of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of peach and melon intermingled with hints of butter, grapefruit, nuts and French oak spice.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Neudorf Tom’s Block Pinot Noir 2014 from Nelson, N.Z. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Fragrant with hints of violets and chocolate supported by elegant restrained tannins.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Franklin Tate Alexander’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 from Margaret River. Notes on the wine,
“Appearance: Medium to deep red with a deep purple hue. Nose: This wine shows aromatic red fruits, mint, spice and savory leafy eucalypt characters and a hint of dark chocolate. Palate: Complex pretty fruits with flavors of blackberry and raspberry are complimented with toasty oak. The mid palate has fine grained tannins, which gives length and finesse to the wine.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
