Score for South African Wines

The Crusher Wine

From the Wine Advocate’s Neil Martin, “I am occasionally asked: what is the most exciting New World country on the scene at the moment...if I have to give a single answer then I would reply: South Africa.” South African wines have recently earned rave reviews from both the Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. Without a doubt Bottle King has put together New Jersey’s most extensive South African wine selection. Here are a few of our high-scoring new arrivals. These items are limited so make sure to grab them before they are gone!

The Crusher Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This dark red brick-colored wine has enticing aromas of raspberries and plums with the signature Wilson Vineyards spice. Lively dark fruit comes through on the palate with a focused dry blackberry profile, full of secondary nuances. There is a great deal of background complexity to this wine, with notes of fresh coffee and dusty, sweet leather- dark, rich flavors that give this wine a bold, masculine character. The final balance between dark jammy fruit and dusty, earthy dryness is both alluring and satisfying.

The wines of Chile certainly have a little something for everyone. Whether you are looking for an adventure in taste or simply a solid value, Chile has it all. Chilean wine has been gaining notice here since the late 1980s, but Chilean wineries have been in existence for more than 500 years!

With the spring creeping up on us, we decided to bring some new selections to the table and here are a few shining examples below.

Vaya Vadiso Chardonnay 2012

The 2010 Vinhas Velhas red is a big uptick in depth and power over its elegant sibling, the Vinha Barrosa.

Germany Springtime Sleepers

Australian Selections

Germany produces many high quality wines and has for centuries. Unfortunately many rarely leave the country or go undiscovered, because they have limited production and very modest distribution.

With the coldest part of the year behind us, it’s time to peel off some layers, roll up those sleeves and prepare for some grilling. No wines do that better than the wines of Australia. The big, bold and rich flavors you’ve come to know and love are a perfect fit for this time of year. We’ve dedicated this section to a few standout reds in this category that are guaranteed to remove the chill from your bones and send your senses into overload.

Novellum Chardonnay 2011

100% Chardonnay (from 25- to 30-year-old vines), aged three months in a combination of Burgundy barrels (30%) and stainless steel tanks (70%), and, somewhat innovatively, is aged on Viognier lees which gives it a honeysuckle and white peach-scented nose. There is also a salty sea breeze character reminiscent of a crushed oyster shell-like note often detected in Loire Valley whites. This crisp, fresh, medium-bodied Cotes Catalanes exhibits lots of earthy/terroir characteristics. Think of it as a brisk, zesty, authoritatively flavored Chardonnay from the cool, alluvial soils on the banks of the Aigly River.

It was soon decided that after generations of rest it was time for Vlaskaas to live again! Renowned for the best milk quality in The Netherlands, Beemster was asked to make the Vlaskaas recipe.

• Beemster Vlaskaas (21 ounces - grated) • 1 loaf whole wheat bread or 4 Panini • 1 small onion • 1 clove garlic • 1 cup of white wine • 4 tablespoons cognac • ½ tablespoon ground coriander • 1¼ cups skim milk • 1½ tablespoon of butter • 3 tablespoons of flour

Materials

• Fondue pot (A regular pot works as well) • Cheese grater

Preparation

Cut the onion into 4 wedges, chop the garlic into large pieces and place in saucepan. Add milk and simmer, 10 minutes. Strain the onion and garlic from the milk. In the meantime grate the Vlaskaas. Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes or ½ inch slices. Grind the coriander. Melt the butter in the fondue pot. In the pan used to simmer the garlic and onions, slowly mix the flour into the milk, stirring constantly. Pour the mixture into the fondue pot while stirring and let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add the grated cheese little by little while continuing to stir. Let the cheese melt while stirring. Stir in wine. Once the fondue reaches an even texture, mix in the cognac and continue to stir. Keep fondue heated until ready to serve. Sprinkle the coriander on top before serving. Put the bread on the table and dip into the fondue. Serve with white wine or beer.

Tips

• Serve the fondue with a salad of fresh fruits: apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, and pineapples. • For a 100% alcohol-free fondue, replace the wine and cognac with 2 cups of an alcohol-free beer. • For a lactose free fondue, replace the milk with white wine.

Bluker Spatlese 2011 Vineyard Direct!

(Germany) The best word to describe this wine is ELEGANT. It opens with aromas of tropical fruit that introduces you to a pallet filled with flavors of pineapple, melon, citrus and just a hint of green apple. Excellent balance of sweetness and acidity make this a very versatile wine. It can be served as an aperitif or enjoyed with a wide range of food. It’s rare to find a Riesling of this quality at such an affordable price.

CLUB Price and 1928 respectively). The wine was aged eight months in 2-year old French oak barrels. It exhibits copious notes of damp earth, forest floor, and a fiery, Graves-like, volcanic smokiness that comes from the vineyard’s soils. Rich, full-bodied and deep with plenty of kirsch, raspberry and black currant fruit characteristics, this mouthfilling red should drink well for 5-6 years. Seen Elsewhere: $29.99

The aromas of white grape, anise, and a hint of sweet rice are quite complex. These same flavors come rushing through the medium-bodied palate which has a slightly creamy texture followed by a hint of white pepper and fresh herbal notes. The long, clean finish makes this a great sipping sake as well as a companion to a wide range of foods.

What is an IPA? In the early English pubs they served light ales and dark ales. So the name Pale Ale was simply a functional way to describe the beer. IPA was developed out of necessity. English soldiers stationed in India wanted beer. Nothing being produced would make the ocean journey. By the time it arrived it was usually undrinkable. The solution, add a lot of hops, they act as a natural preservative. India Pale Ale was born. Over the years it had a modest following until the modern Craft Brew craze embraced it and all of its possibilities. It allows the brew masters to express themselves. What type of hops? How much to use? When to add it? How long to leave it in? All of these factors give the brewers an opportunity to create something unique. IPA has become the signature item for many breweries. It identifies them to the beer drinkers of the world. Hop Heads will go to great lengths to find and purchase very special products that are produced in very limited quantities. The basic taste profile for an IPA is a flowery aroma and a bitter palate, both a product of the amount and types of hops used. It can be very simple and easy drinking with a pleasant aroma, or extremely bitter with a flowery nose that will knock your head back… and everywhere in between. Spring is finally here. It is time to take a break from the heavy stouts and porters, and enjoy the refreshing hoppiness of an IPA. India Pale Ale highlights the bright flowery aromas and flavor of hops. The crisp bitterness of this wildly popular style of beer makes it a great match for a wide variety of food. Everything from your favorite burger, grilled chicken or fish, to a spicy stir fry, would be complimented nicely by any of the countless number of IPA’s currently available. Just about every Craft brewer produces an IPA, and for a quite a few it is their signature product. Below you will find a selection of some of our current favorites. Visit your local Bottle king to check out our extensive selection of IPAs and our entire Craft Beer section.
