Sunday's Wine

 

RIOJA BLANCO "VIÑA GRAVONIA CRIANZA," L. DE HEREDIA, ‘05

It’s the finale of Philly Wine Week! (Boooooo) We’re closing Wine Week out with an extra-special Sunday School featuring a cult wine geek favorite; the excellent López de Heredia Rioja Blanco “Gravonia” from the 2005 vintage. For a 131 years, three generations of the López de Heredia family have devoted themselves to producing exceptional and unique wines. These wines define traditional Rioja; they set the standards by which the region's greatest wines are judged. Made from the traditional Viura grape, this particular wine ages for four years in oak and then for six more years in the bottle before being released for consumption. The wine is perfect; butterscotchy, balanced and bright. Enjoy it with a rustic Spanish cheese and some mixed olives for a richly Rioja experience.

CAMBOZOLA BLACK LABEL

Feeling blue? Cheer up and come over to the dark side with delicious Cambozola Black Label. Today’s cheese is a German Brie-style cow's milk cheese with just the slightest hint of blue veining. That’s…different. It’s also extremely delicious; creamy, buttery and unctuous. Funky (in a good way) gray mold on the rind brings another layer of nuance to the flavor profile of this cheese, and a longer ripening time than standard blues enhances both the taste and texture. Sublimely rich with a fun little hint of nuttiness, it melts on the palate and leaves you begging for more. Cambozola Black Label is a great introduction to blue cheese for those who tend to avoid the often-intense style – and it will teach you a whole new meaning of delicious when paired with a brut sparkler or honeyed dessert wine.

Sunday's Beer

 

SOUTHERN TIER HOP SUN

(Lakewood, NY · 5.5%)

Looking for a refreshing wheat beer, but tired of the usual Wit and Hefeweizen? Usher in the warm season with Southern Tier’s sessionable hopped-up wheat beer. Hop Sun drinks like a crisp and refreshing Pilsner or Pale Ale with a bright, citrusy bite. Wheat provides balance and a clean finish while dry hopping brings a burst of zesty hop aroma to the forefront without overwhelming bitterness. With visions of reviving small batch brewing tradition of the Southern Tier region of New York, Phineas DeMink and Allen "Skip" Yahn founded the aptly named Southern Tier Brewing Company in 2002. Regional success has led to national recognition for Southern Tier’s high-quality hand crafted ales. Sample their simple, well-balanced brew today with just about any cheese and a dose of sun—just don’t forget the sunscreen!
