Jaynes is going all out for September Wine Month with wine flights, a Saturday tasting series and a heavyweight Central European Wine dinner on Tuesday the 21st. I know September is still a day away but lets get started a day early...
Tuesday through Thursday this week were are featuring a 3G Wine Flight. No, this isn't a reference to my last iphone that actually worked, I'm talking about Gruner, Grasevina and Pinot Grigio.
2009 Domaine Wachau 'Federspiel' Gruner Veltiner
There is perhaps no white wine more versatile than Austria's Gruner Veltiner. The Domaine Wachau is a Jaynes staff favorite with ripe apple/grapefruit notes, crisp acidity and stony minerality. This wine just seems to pair with everything.
2008 Zdjelarevic Grasevina (say that 3 times fast)
Jaynes is fortunate to be among the very few restaurants in San Diego to be really digging into the wines of Central Europe. Gravesina is the Croatian planting of the ancient Welschrielsing. Zdjelarevic hand harvests their grapes and ages sur lie in stainless steel. This process, most often seen in the production of Muscadet in the Loire Valley, adds complexity and richness to the wine.
2008 Venica 'Jesera' Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio, perhaps the most bastardized and maligned grape variety in the world. The Collio region of Friuli in Northeastern Italy along the Slovenian border was one of those winemaking regions that woke up to how unique a wine could be and opened the door to great Pinot Grigio. The winemakers from the region, on both sides of the border, make some of the world's most unique wines and appear to have little interest in biasing their wines towards an international palate. The often insipid, flat flavor profile is replaced with beautiful aromatics, a full, rich mouthfeel and a color like Provence rose'.
September Saturdays Wine Tasting Series
3 tastes are just $10.
Central European Wine Dinner
Tuesday September 21st
Jaynes Gastropub and Blue Danube Wines is hosting a Central European Wine Dinner on Tuesday September 21st. We will be featuring 6 Wines from Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary paired with a 4 course Dinner. Our good friend Stetson Robbins from Blue Danube Wines will be here to pour wine and talk. Stetson, besides being very good looking and having a great name, has incredible knowledge and passion for this region and Jayne and I always enjoy his company. We don't do wine dinners very often, but when we do we just have to go all out.
