November Winner: Furmint
Katerina Dordelman of Sour Grapes brought two wines from Croatia and two from Slovenia for consideration. The clear favorite was 2017 Kobal Furmint from Slovenia.
Group appreciated the varietal as you could enjoy it solo or pair with food. Flavors found ranged from Meyer Lemon, Green Apple to Ginger. Good with Asian dishes. The wine is dry, medium in body and acidity. No need to decant and it can go for 10 years in the bottle!
Some thought this wine would also work as a palate cleanser between courses. But whether paired with a dish or served between dishes, this wine is spot on for Thanksgiving. $17.99
2016 Plavac was also very well received. This wine is from the cooler island locations presenting aromas of plum, cherry and local herbs. The palate is bight, rustic and earthy but with soft tannins leaving the fruit to shine. Group thought this wine was very versatile. Another good choice for the Thanksgiving Table
