 Sips of the Week Katie & Michael Cavanaugh of Cavanaugh Family Imports joined us to taste a few great wines from Over the Mountain Winery in the Overberg region of South Africa. Join the Cavanaugh’s at Quarry Wine & Spirits from 2-6 PM to taste all their wines from Over the Mountain. Over the Mountain Sauvignon Blanc 2011, Overberg, South Africa Winemaker’s Notes: Our second Sauvignon Blanc vintage continues in the Seven Springs style. The wine has a delicate perfume, tantalizing ripe fruit on the palate with good lingering minerality. Enjoy ripe apples and peaches with hints of the natural vegetation of the area, fynbos , and fresh herbs. It is a light, refreshing wine. Over the Mountain Chardonnay 2011, Overberg, South Africa Winemaker’s Notes: Dry, crisp and smooth this chardonnay has an abundance of fresh ripe white peach and melon aromas. It has a beautifully balanced palate with concentrated rich tropical fruits, a zesty acidity and a hint of gentle toasted oak. The long finish will leave you wanting more. Drink it chilled with friends and match it with chicken, fish and pork dishes. Over the Mountain Pinot Noir 2012, Overberg, South Africa Winemaker’s Notes: Produced from young vines our Pinot Noir is sophisticated and full of character. It is bright and vibrant in colour with a beautiful balanced red berry flavour, a hint of spice, and an excellent finish. It is a very versatile food wine and will match perfectly with mushroom, duck, beef, lamb or pork dishes.
