Elevate your last summer BBQs with an ingredient most won’t have
If sustainable hot dogs, grass-fed burgers and organic veggies are on the menu of your next summer BBQ, the imbibing experience should be on par with the food offerings. While organic wines have taken off in the past years, biodynamic wines have arguably still kept a low profile.
Bonterra Organic Vineyards has also been at the forefront of biodynamic winemaking from their certified biodynamic ranches in Mendocino County, CA.
These vineyards produce the purest grapes, expressive of the lively biodiversity and biological activity in the vineyards, delivering wines that are a perfect match for elevated summer soirées.
·The 2014 The McNab (SRP $50) is a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a touch of Old Vine Petite Sirah. The resulting wine has aromas of blackberries and black currants. Soft tannins and a long finish reveal flavors of raspberry, plum, vanilla spice and well-integrated oak.
· The 2015 The Roost (SRP $40) is a classic Burgundian-style Chardonnay, with a brilliant, light golden straw color. This has tart aromas of lemon curd and fig spice that are complemented on the palate with a creamy texture and a ripe melon flavor. The wine finishes with a touch of oak from barrel aging.
· The 2013 The Butler (SRP $50) is a Rhone-style blend with intense, complex aromas of spicy black fruit, cigar paper, and espresso. On the palate, muscular tannins frame a juicy mid-palate, enhancing elegant flavors of black fruit, anise, and subtle spices. The finish lingers with notions of smoke, closing on an intriguing mineral note.
