MCF Rare Wine
Division's Newest Releases
In conjunction with our in-store tasting with Division Winemaking Company's Co-proprietor Kate Norris tomorrow night (5-7p), I thought it only right to send out an offer of what little we have from this tiny, but mighty urban winery.
Ever since they made a splash some years back, Division's wines have become cult-favorites among the many fabulous producers in the 'new' Oregon.
While the Gamay put them on the map, they have a whole lineup of fantastic, terroir-driven, micro-production wines that emphasize finesse and varietal character above all.
So, for those of you who can't come taste them tomorrow, here's your shot...
DIVISION WINEMAKING CO.
Rose of Gamay Noir L'Avoiron 2018
A perennial favorite here at MCF - soft, deep, elegant and subtly earthy, this is a rosé that can effortlessly glide from dish to dish all summer long and right into the Fall.
Inspired by the 'bistro' blends of the Touraine, this super cool wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc (65%), Gamay Noir (20%). Cot (10%) Pinot Noir (5%), some of which are fermented in a traditional manner and some of which are fermented carbonic. The end result is a wine that's a little bit light and fruity, a little bit sturdy and earthy and a lotta-bit versatile and delicious. A fabulous Summer-chiller...
Cabernet Franc 'Granit' Mae's Vineyard Applegate Valley 2017
With the serious Cab Francs of the Loire as its paradigm, this fantastic wine is medium-weight, elegant and earthy/spicy just like a great Chinon, but is unmistakably 'Oregon' in its deep, dark richness and supple texture. Lovely stuff.
Pinot Noir 'Trois' Temperence Hill Vineyard Eola Amity 2016
It's OR, so we can't not have any of OR's OG grape, Pinot Noir, now, can we? This rich, deep, hyper-fragrant Pinot is, at once, wide open and super-expressive, but also possesses a brawny, tightly-knit backbone that should endow it with a very long life of development ahead of it. The mineral-packed palate shows a nice touch of the animale.
WINES ARE VERY LIMITED
