Austro-Hungarian Wine Tasting at Lou

Sat Jul 25, 2015 3:00pm - 7:00pm

Today’s tasting: taste the fruits of Austro-Hungarian imperialism with two experts on the wines of the region
Saturday July 25 non-stop from 3-7 PM $10 no reservations

Live and in person, today only, is your opportunity to taste with two experts on the wines of the former Austro-Hungarian empire: our friends Maxwell Leer, wine shaman extraordinaire (Tasting Kitchen, SLS, Bestia, Wine Rave, et al.), and Michael Newsome (Blue Danube Wine Company, Vienna Wine Company). Austria-Hungary is long gone and the Hapsburgs no longer in living memory, but the viticultural treasures of this era still live on, and we tender a few of these jewels to you at today’s tasting. These are electrifying wines, with one foot firmly planted in the past and the other in the future. Maxwell will discuss his recent trip to Hungary as we taste wines from the growers he visited (the fantastic Mr. Béla, alas, now in his 90s, was not prepared for a visitor, but we will nevertheless taste a wine from one of his final vintages). Michael, a veritable Encyclopedia Brown of Hungarian wine, will also be on hand to entertain us with details regarding the winemaking technique and soils of this unique and historic wine growing region.

Bernreiter “Heuriger” 2014 Austria (Porch pounder alert! The traditional, ultra-refreshing field blend summertime wine of Vienna, dry, unassuming, fresh, insists on not being taken not too seriously)

Béla Hárslevelű 2011 Hungary (from the complex soils of Somló in the northwest of the country, where ancient volcanoes and seabeds define the terroir—delicate and mineral, aged in huge ass Hungarian oak barrels).

Bott Furmint Csontos 2013 Hungary (dry Tokaji from vineyards tilled by horse, dry fruit compote, minerals, and smoke, wild yeast fermented)

Tinon Tokaji Szamorodni Dry 2007 Hungary (another dry Tokaji, but made in what is today a very rare style, dry szamorodni, made from wrinkly and botrytized grapes fermented into a lightly oxidative and nutty, thoroughly engaging white wine)

The Wines of Blue Danube with Eric Danch

Tasting Saturday, June 20th: Pouring from 2-4pm

Join us as we taste one of our perennial favorite whites from Slovenia, the humble Crnko Jarenincan, a delightfully earthy, high acid dry Furmint from Tokaj Nobilis in Hungary, the Susogo. Next we'll move on to two delightful reds, the first a Refosk from the hands of Ludvic Nazaridj Glavina based in Slovenia, followed by a Teran from Croatia with a refreshingly low alcohol of 12.3%. We'll finish the flight with one of the world's most historic sweet wines: a 2005 Samuel Tinon Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos -- a wine fit both for kings and an impeccable pairing with the recently re-legalized fruit of the goose; foie gras.

The ever-ebullient Eric will be on-hand to pour from 2-4pm Saturday. The cost of the tasting will be $10, and all wine purchased from the tasting will be discounted at 10%.
