WINE OF THE MONTH: LEMBERGER

Lemberger is a traditional red grape of Austria where it is known as Blaufrankisch. It is a gentle, medium-bodied, easy to drink red wine. The nose tends toward cherries and berries, with strong supporting aromas of smoke, spice and black pepper than can turn toward a pronounced gaminess on occasion. Blaufrankisch/Lemberger are often paired with lamb and grilled meats. It is perfect for a wine and cheese get together as it pairs well with Gouda, Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack and Feta cheeses.

Elizabeth Schneider, editor of “Wines for Normal People”, sums it up by writing: “What a fabulous medium-bodied wine. In a world where it’s hard to come by something on the lighter side that still has umph, this is a real gem.”

Laurita’s production of Lemberger is extremely limited. So act quickly, and take advantage of the 10% bottle discount this month at the winery.
