Teutonic Wine Company Wine Dinner at Ardent

In Uncategorized on February 5, 2016 at 1:30 pm

Date: Wednesday, February 10
Time: 6 pm – 9 pm
Location: Ardent Restaurant (1751 N. Farwell Avenue)
Cost: $100 (price includes food and wine)
Format: Wine dinner, RSVP required (RSVP to Waterford Wine Company)

Teutonic Wine Company is a small, family owned winery based in Willamette Valley, Oregon, crafting Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling of dramatic character – and I do mean that.  Not only are these wines stunningly beautiful, they are stunningly like nothing else, and need to be tasted to be understood.

Ardent is one of Milwaukee’s hottest restaurants, characterized by a warmth and passion, an enthusiasm, and revolutionary zeal for creating bold and new cuisine.  The dishes are as clever as they are tasty, as radical as they are deeply soul-satisfying.

To say that these two forces are going to be an utterly delightful and captivating mashup in hedonistic delectation would be to understate the case – for the epicure in you, this evening is going to be one that you’ll always remember.  Don’t miss it.

The menu is not complete yet, but we will be adding it as soon as possible.  A partial list of wines is below (all of Teutonic’s wines are of extremely low production, if we sell out of one we will replace it with another of equal caliber).

2013 Domaine Bourgogne-Devaux Hautes-Cotes de Beaune La Daligniere

In Burgundy on February 4, 2016 at 12:46 pm

daligniereThe nose offers up a beautiful perfume of strawberry scones, baking spices, hints of sarsaparilla and sweet cloves.  It’s lively and youthful, and like most of the ’13 red Burgundies I’ve been drinking, it’s just delicious now, even right off the cork pull.  Unlike some red Burgundies, where you have to mouse around try to coax (or convince) yourself that there is hedonistic pleasure to be had in the bottle somewhere, this one gives it up, front and center, straightaway.  And the palate is just gorgeous – the red fruits, spiced orange peel, sweet plums become lush in the midpalate, ending with a lively touch of mineral grip and structure at the end.  It will keep you drinking more, and more, and boom!  Shortly enough you’ll be onto your second bottle.

I’m drinking my stash right now, but I’m guessing you can get a solid decade out of this wine. Please contact us for pricing and availability: 414-289-9463 or sommelier@waterfordwine.com.

2012 Numanthia Termes Tempranillo

In Tempranillo on February 4, 2016 at 12:43 pm

numanthiaI’ve had Bodegas Numanthia’s wines back to 1999, and these are monsters of rock, louder than love, and as big a red wine as you can get.  Napa Cab, Aussie Shiraz, Bordeaux, Zinfandel—whatever—step aside, because 100-plus-year-old ungrafted Spanish Tempranillo is going to spank you right off the table:

Huge aromas of figs roasted in port wine, rashers of serrano ham, crème de cassis, wood smoke and ultra-ripe raspberry practically cleave the glass in two down its seam.  The palate is unctuous, glycerol, curvaceous.  The finish is full-bodied, enormously endowed with fully integrated tannins and silky fruit that lasts for over a minute.  Frankly, I suggest you take it parties of serious wine connoisseurs and serve it blind – it will match the best of Napa or Australia at a price that is simply a steal.  You and your friends will be blown away.
