Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of May we are focusing on the many expressions of Pinot Noir that don’t hail from Burgundy or California. All throughout the winemaking world, producers have been inspired by the great Pinot Noirs of Burgundy and in their own time, have done their best to capture lightning in a bottle. All month you will be surprised at the versatility of Pinot Noir, shocked that you aren’t drinking Burgundy and stunned that this grape can achieve such diversity. We look forward to your feedback on where the “other” great Pinot Noirs express best.”
This week featuring: Chacra Pinot Noir Cincuenta y Cinco, Patagonia 2015
As we close out the month with one last epic bottling of Pinot Noir, it is hard to find a greater surprise from this magical grape then the wines of Chacra in Patagonia, Argentina. Chacra translates to farm in Patagonian dialect and it is great farming that has allowed these bottlings to thrive. Planted in the late 1930s, the Pinot Noir vines of Chacra are still yielding healthy and concentrated fruit. At $20 a glass, ripe red fruit still dominates the palate, but a bright finish reminds you of the greatness of Pinot Noir…. no matter the place.
