2013 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino
2013 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino
The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a tight and tonic red wine with loads of fresh fruit and crisp acidity at the back. The wine is simple, clean and compact in structure. It would make a great pairing partner to pasta with a hearty meat sauce or breaded veal chops. It's your quintessential food wine. Altesino is an estate in dynamic motion. I had not been back in a number of years and the property has seen an impressive series of positive changes during my absence. Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini runs her historic property with deft precision and a careful eye for both aesthetics and quality. The yellow-rimmed botte in her cellar are a prime example of that feminine touch. When Elisabetta purchased the property in 2002 she had just emerged victorious from a bidding war with Château Margaux. The feisty Elisabetta who owns the adjacent Caparzo property tells me: "I just couldn't have French neighbors." Her aim in terms of winemaking is to stay true to Montalcino tradition. Because she owns vineyard parcels in the four quadrants of Montalcino, she has added blending flexibility to make the wines she wants by sourcing fruit with different ripeness from the various subzones.

Now people can get a bit sniffy over sweet sherry. The preserve of aging aunts and getting the grandmother tipsy before the Christmas Day Turkey and all that. Especially with such an iconic brand as Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry.

But in my extended family, Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry is a stalwart through the winter months. One year a crises arose when the clan gathering in a Peak District cottage for Christmas through to New Year discovered that the case of six litre bottles purchased for the occasion had been LEFT BEHIND! The men were dispatched in a flurry to all corners of the district to locate supplies. Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a bottle. Or, in the case of my family, several bottles.

Personally I don’t mind it; I’ve a sweet tooth afterall. A glass with a mincepie is rather pleasant. While the family drink it lightly chilled I have taken to pouring it over ice and decorating it with a slice of orange. But for the cocktail.collection something a little more involved was required; this cocktail combining Bristol Cream Sherry with apple juice seemed ideal.

Harveys Frosted Apple and Ginger Cocktail

Ingredients
50ml Harveys Bristol Cream
50ml Apple Juice
Ginger beer to taste
Cinnamon stick
Apple slices to garnish

Fill a glass with ice, Harveys Bristol Cream, apple juice. Top up with a generous splash of alcoholic ginger beer. Swirl with a cinnamon stick and leave in the glass. Garnish with a slice of apple.

“Christmas isn’t Christmas without Harveys Bristol Cream, a unique wine that has cemented its place as the most iconic festive drink in British households since its creation in 1882. Crafted from a delicate blend of wines from Jerez, it’s not only known for its nostalgia but for its golden deep amber colour, hint of festive spice and sweet raisin flavours. And with these delicious, easy serves, you’ll wonder how your drinks cart has missed this essential oldie but goodie for so long.”

Wine That Stands Up to Pesto
It's officially summer. Unofficially, it's basil season. Right now, I am overwhelmed with the stuff. Pictured to the left is one of my behemoth basil plants. Having a lot of basil isn't exactly a problem, I admit. Who doesn't love basil? But for wine lovers, basil can make for difficult pairings. This is one assertive herb, and you need a wine that isn't going to clash with it, nor do you want your wine to disappear on the palate.















My usual go-to wine when strong green, herbal notes are part of a dish is Sauvignon Blanc. But New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are often quite citrusy, and US Sauvignon Blancs can be too melony and soft for basil. So I opened a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc--and it was perfect with my linguine tossed with homemade pesto and topped with some heirloom cherry tomatoes.


The 2011 Viña Carmen Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva (available for $13-$15 in the market) is made from grapes grown in the Leyda Valley. It has vibrant aromas of grass, gooseberry, and that uniquely weird smell of boxwood that I often smell in Sauvignon Blancs from the southern hemisphere. This wine was green and leafy rather than citrusy, with a backbone of acidity that was neutral in flavor but kept your mouth watering for more. The midpalate was herbal, making me think 'this is what Cabernet Franc would taste like if it were white and not red.' Cool and refreshing, this stood up to the basil. If you have the wine with something less resolutely green, you may find that its assertiveness is a problem but if you have basil, this is a good wine to go with it--and it represents very good QPR.

Full Disclosure: I received a sample of this wine for possible review.
