Valentine's Day

Strawberries and Sparkling Wines
 
Have you seen the movie “Pretty Woman.”  It is a romantic comedy which launched Julia Roberts’ successful career.  The story was based on “My Fair Lady” but I think due to its romantic ending, it is the perfect movie to watch on Valentine’s day.
In the movie, there is a scene where Julia Roberts is drinking Champagne and Richard Gere recommends drinking it while eating strawberries as this complements it.

Since strawberries are surprisingly sweet it goes well with the bubbles of the Champagne.  The fruity Sparkling wines are easier to match than the drier ones, so this time we chose a mature Sekt from Germany.  This 2013 vintage Sekt is made from Riesling harvested 100 percent in the Rheingau region.  It has a beautifully matured fruity taste.
If you prefer Champagne instead, please try the Champagne Bernard Remy Carte Blanche instead.
On Valentine’s day this year please make a toast and drink bubbles and eat strawberries.  You can enjoy a romantic night like in the movies…

Tasting notes

Beautiful bright lemon yellow colour. Fragrances of dough, roasted almonds, toast, ripe apple, white peach etc. linger. The attack is smooth. This is a well balanced and well bodied champagne with a fresh and pleasantly integrated acidity. The aftertaste with frangrances of ripe apple and orange peel linger on for a long time. Drink cool now or later.

Argentine wine and dark chocolate
 
With Valentine’s day you immediately think of chocolate.  Milk or white chocolate is fine but why not go for dark chocolate this year?
Amongst the various chocolates, dark chocolate pairs well with red wine.  It is not very sweet, and it is similar to the sweetness found in the fruity taste of the New World red wines.  Both dark chocolate and the New World red wines have a spicy and earthiness about them.  Amongst the red wines, we recommend you try the Malbec wines from Argentina.
The Malbec wines from Argentina have a more mellow fruitiness about them compared to the Malbec wines from the Southwestern parts of France.  The tannins are softer so they are easier to match with chocolate.
That which is particularly suited is dark chocolate with spices such as black pepper and chili.  We recommend that you try to marry a Malbec wine from Bodegas Krontiras.  This biodynamic wine has a wonderfully pure flavor.
Please enjoy the exotic marriage between dark chocolate and a Malbec wine!
