Spring Wine Flight

We’re starting to get ready for spring here in Andover!  To help celebrate the change of seasons, we’re introducing a spring wine flight special!  For $20, you’ll receive a two-ounce pour of five different wines.  This month, we’re featuring different labels of Sauvignon Blanc from around the world; a fruity version from California, a full-bodied option from New Zealand, a crisp aromatic sample from France,  a rich choice from South Africa, and finally, a dry elegant variant from Chile.

The spring Sauvignon Blanc flight is available March 1st through March 31st. Reservations can be made by calling 978-775-4910.

Taste of Sauvignon Blanc From Around the World

Enjoy two ounces of each featured wine
All wines also available by the bottle or glass

Tangent – Edna Valley, CA
This Sauvignon Blanc Grape is grown in central California. The valley is kept cool by breezes from the Pacific Ocean and morning fog. The extended growing season gives complex flavors to the grapes. The flavors of green apple, lime, grapefruit, lemon zest and a bit of minerality to boot. It pairs well with seafood and most definitely with oysters.

Esk Valley – Marlborough, New Zealand
The Wairau vineyards are planted on the “Southern Clays” with heavier soils providing structure and body to the wine. The cooler nature of these sites bring notes of gooseberry, citrus and pea pods are found in the finished product. This wine pairs very well with many Seafood and Asian style dishes.

Pascal Jolivet – Sancerre, Loire, FR
Sancerre is a small wine district in Loire France, famous for its crisp, aromatic white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. Pungent aromas of gooseberries and a hint of stony minerality ending with subtle notes of grapefruit and lemon peel. Goat cheese is a wonderful regional food pairing for Sancerre but you’ll find that this wine is quite versatile.

Bayten – False Bay, South Africa
This Sauvignon Blanc is planted in soils of Clovelly and Tukulu, both forms of decomposed granite, leaving a full, rich “yellow” fruit flavors of melon and cape gooseberries. This wine pairs well with goat cheese and roasted red pepper crostini and tomato gazpacho.

Santa Digna – Central Valley, Chile
This wine is produced in special climatic conditions of the Curico region of Chile. This unwooded Sauvignon Blanc is a lively, dry elegant wine with lovely combinations of green apple flavors and supported by ripe tropical fruits. This wine can be enjoyed with grilled fish, shellfish and pasta.
