Friday 5/8 Wine and Cheese Delivery!
Time & Location
Pairing Event Details
Friday night date night at home! We're delivering a bottle of Lubanzi Red Blend, which follows French blends from the Rhone Valley in that it comprises of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. It has a nice med-full body with balanced fruit/spice/earth. This wine hails from South Africa, so it is a little brighter than a French GSM, but not nearly as fruity and round as CA red blends.
The first cheese we've paired with this is Quadrello di Bufala, which is a water buffalo milk Taleggio from Italy. It has an orangeish rind (from being washed in brine), a rich, creamy paste, and tastes tangy and a little meaty.
The second cheese we've paired is a lovely 4 month, raw-milk Manchego, which is an authentic Manchego from La Manch, made from raw Manchega sheep's milk. It is firm and a little flaky, grassyl, nutty, and slightly sweet. It should provide a nice side-by-side with the Quadrello and the red wine we've chosen.
Our deliveries are brought to you by some of our laid-off bartender friends from around town- all tips plus a portion of sales go to them. They will deliver to you (within Denton) between 4 pm and 7 pm. If you are unsure about our delivery range, give us a call at the shop during business hours. If you know you're out of range, you are welcome to come pick it up- just let us know!
