Special Wine Tasting at Savour, Saturday 2 – 4 pm, of Wines from Westport Rivers Winery in Massachusetts!

SATURDAY, NOV. 26, 2-4 PM

JOIN US FOR A COMPLIMENTARY WINE TASTING WITH SUSAN RICHARDS, INDEPENDENT WINE CONSULTANT AND REPRESENTATIVE FOR WESTPORT RIVERS WINERY IN WESTPORT, MASSACHUSETTS, (AND NEWEST MEMBER OF OUR SAVOUR STAFF).

Westport Rivers Winery (WPR), on the southeast coast of Massachusetts, is owned and operated by the Russell Family. They have been producing wine since 1986. On 80 acres of farmland near the Westport River, WPR produces approximately 10,000 cases of wine a year, including their signature traditional method sparkling wines, whites, reds, and vermouth.

 WINES

2012 Brut Cuvee Sparkling Wine

Varietals:Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier Alc.12.5%

The newest vintage of Westport’s classic aged sparkling wine has a nose with rich aromas of caramel, candied walnuts, and spiced baked apple, reminiscent of the best aged wines from Champagne. On the palate, rich flavors of spice and apple cider are enhanced by extremely fine bubbles and the dry, crisp texture. It finishes with buttery and nutty notes.

Pairs well with creamy French cheeses and salty potato chips.$

2019 Riesling

Varietal:Riesling Alc. 12%

A classic Riesling with almond, cream and apricots on the nose followed by a pronounced fruit aroma of honeydew, kiwi, and plum along with hints of chamomile and smoke on the outer edges. This is a dry wine with similar notes of fruit and floral flavors on the palate and a long,satisfying finish.

Pairs well with spicy Asian food, omelets, and fruity desserts. $

2020 Geisenheimer

Varietal: GeisenheimerAlc.12%

A truly special wine, this variety is an unnamed German complex cross, bred by Helmut Becker at the Geisenheim Institute in 1957. It is grown by virtually no one else in the United States (as far as WPR knows). The winery bought their bud wood from Eckhard Kaesekamp of Euro Nurseries in Ontario in the ‘90s and maintained one row until they grafted more vines and expanded the block to 3 acres in 2016-2018. Heady floral aromas of roses, late-season golden apples and honey transition into citrusy flavors of lime and sweet spice. Dry and rich, yet with mild acidity.

Pair with sausages and sauerkraut. $

2019 Pinot Noir

Varietal: Pinot NoirAlc. 13%

A quick nosing will give you restrained fruit, oak, and sweet florals. Give your nose some time, and cherry liqueur and strawberry candy emerge as the dominating fruit contenders. Present is an aura of French oak. Delicate, lithe, hinting at baking spice but not prominent enough to get specific name recognition. Stay with the bouquet long enough and you will get a slightly salty, soy and forest floor note. First sip is plucky, immediately launching you into food fantasy. It is light in body with a tingle of pepper that edges out on the finish. Tannins flit away as the acidity brings on the palate cleansing, leaving behind silk. Mustard seed and black tea ride out on the finish. The fruit dominates but is always accompanied by French Oak and savory flavors.

Pairs well with lighter meat dishes, pasta with mushrooms, and leftover turkey.

2019 River Flatts Red

Varietals:80% Marquette, 20% Petite Pearl Alc. 13.5%

As the grape growing culture of Massachusetts matures, new hybrid grape varieties are being developed specifically for a North American climate, and Westport is at the forefront of these efforts. One grape variety they are having success with is Marquette. This hybrid grape, genetically a grandchild of Pinot Noir, has been bred to withstand cooler northern climates and disease pressures. River Flatts Red is a blend of Marquette with Petite Pearl, another recent hybrid that brings a splash of Italian personality to the wine. The result is a wine with a fruity nose, a touch of autumn leaves, citrus rind, and a lovely bouquet of spice (cardamom and nutmeg). The wine is full of bright red cherry and fresh blackberry fruit flavors. Medium bodied yet quite refreshing, it needs a few minutes to open up to its full potential, but once it does it is lively, fresh, and food friendly.

Pair with pizza, pasta with red sauce, and burgers.

And don’t forget to check out what’s new in our beer case. We just got in a new shipment of Maine Beer, with the IPA’s “Lunch” and “Little Whale Boat” leading the charge.  We have a rich brown ale called “Brown Dog” and the wonderfully dark but slightly hoppy Robust Porter, both from Smuttynose.
