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: Movia Pinot Nero Modri, Brda 2011
Movia is winery best known for their practices of natural winemaking in the hills of Collio, right on the border of Slovenia and Italy. Their Pinot Nero stands alone in its intensity, power and purity of fruit. After spending significant time macerating on the skins, the juice from this Pinot Nero develops in the barrel and in the bottle into leather, tobacco, wet earth and dark fruits. At $18 a glass, this Pinot Nero is not only an introduction to a beautiful grape, but also flawless farming and winemaking.
