Alsace - France
Vintage: 2007


Because of its unique corner of the world, Alsace, although it lies in modern day France, has quite a Germanic tradition. It is world-renowned for its dry rieslings. Less sweet than its brethren from across the border, I find that Alsatian rieslings offer a more dynamic food and wine pairing experience. It goes well with cheeses such as gruyere and gouda, light onion flavors like leeks or ramps in spring, seafood such as sole and trout, and white meats. You’ll be amazed next time you have Thai!

Somontano - Spain
Vintage: 2009

Somontano is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) for wines, created in 1984, and located in the county of the same name, in the province of Huesca, (Aragon). It borders the regions of Sobrarbe and Ribagorza in the North, Hoya de Huesca in the West, the Monegros in the South, and the region of Litera in the East. Wine production is centred around the town of Barbastro. The name Somontano, as its Latin roots suggest, means “beneath the mountain” – this perfectly defines this geographic area, which spreads out from the foothills of the Pyrenees down to the Ebro valley. The DO includes 43 municipalities, most of them in the Somontano area, and a few bordering on Ribagorza and the Monegros. There are over 4000 hectares of vines and about 500 individual grape-growers.

La Miranda Garnacha Blanca 2009 is a unique wine, due to the grape variety, just cultivated in Spain, specifically in Aragon. It shows a yellow color with green highlights.
High aromatic intensity combines fruit aromas, citrus with some spicy nuances. The mouth is soft, with a moderate and balanced acidity with its own special personality.

Rueda - Spain
Vintage: 2009

Rueda is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) for wines located in the Community of Castile and Leon. It comprises 72 municipalities, of which 53 are in the province of Valladolid, 17 are in the north of the province of Segovia, and two are in the north of the province of Ávila. Rueda is known primarily for its fine white wines based on the verdejo grape. The main authorized white varieties are Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc, while the authorized red varieties are Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Garnacha.

The authorized yield for white varieties is 8,000 kg/ha, though in practice the yields are only between one quarter and one half of this level. Most new vineyards are planted with rows at 3 m intervals to allow mechanization. Irrigation is only allowed under special circumstances. Vines are often trained close to the ground to resist the strong winds that are characteristic of the area.

The Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc blend has year after year been named one of Spain’s and the world’s great white wine values. The intense floral aromatics, freshness and wonderful texture are the result of the high elevation plantings in lime and gravel soils with good drainage that give rise to some of the best quality white wine grapes in Spain. In 2009, Basa is an 85% Verdejo, 10% Viura and 5% Sauvignon Blanc blend, giving it a more important focus on the native Verdejo than in the past. As always, it is a fantastically refreshing yet serious bottle of wine, with a range of aromas and flavors from stony mineral notes to citrus to tropical fruit.

Rais Baixas - Spain
Vintage: 2008

The Rías Baixas is the most well-known region of Galicia and produces some of Spain's most sought-after dry white wines based on the Albariño grape. While wines have been produced in this region for some time, exports of the wine to other areas of Europe didn't begin until the 16th century and was kept at a steady pace until the phylloxera epidemic devastated the region's vineyards. At the turn of the 20th century, many of the region's vineyards were replanted with low-quality hybrid vines and some plantings of the Sherry grape Palomino that didn't produce as well in the cooler climate of Rías Baixas. In the 1970s, growers began to replant native varieties like Albariño. Throughout the region, 12 grape varieties are permitted, including the red wine grapes of Mencia and Espadeiro, but Albariño accounts for 90% of the region's production.
Vibrant lemon-green in color, the Lícia Albariño exhibits a classic expression of the Albariño grape: intense and layered aromas of grapefruit, candied lemons, quince jelly, fresh herbs, green apples and a streak of minerality. On the palate it is full-bodied and well-balanced, with a long and persistent finish. This wine pairs deliciously with grilled fish—or any kind of seafood—Asian cuisines, rice dishes, salads and grilled vegetables.
