In August, we’re taking Marrow Magnum Mondays at Death & Taxes to Austria. Why Austrian wines, you ask? Our beverage director, Cappie Peete, is jazzed on these bottles after spending four days this spring at VieVinum Hofburg Vienna, a wine fair. While there, she had the opportunity to visit wineries, talk with wine makers there, and, oh yea… taste a BUNCH of different Austrian wines.
She picked some of her favorite magnums to share this month at Death & Taxes. We’ll be pouring these by the glass, and featuring our embered bone marrow to boot.
On August 6th, look for the 2017 rosé from Heidi Schrock, one of Austria’s top winemakers.
On August 13th We’ll be featuring Szegiti Gruner Veltliner, which has notes of lime and green apple. This wine if full of flavor, with nice delicate bubble that keeps us coming back for more.
On August 20th we will have Schloss Gobelsburg Cristercien rosé, which has under-ripe berry tones that give it a nice crisp flavor. This rosé drinks like a white wine with its tartness.
On August 27th, to end the month we will be pouring the 2016 Tegernseerhof, Gruner Veltliner Smaragd, "Bergdistel." This wine is richly textured and not too fruity. It has apple and pear tones with nice hints of umami flavors. It is lip smacking and is perfectly paired with bone marrow!
