  • Product Description

     

    Please join Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits on Friday February 1st from 6:30-8:00pm for a Crush Hour featuring wines from the alpine countries of Austria, Germany and Alsace.

    It is technically winter here in Tampa Bay so why not look to some of the wine countries around the world for inspiration.  Alpine wines are bright clean and crisp, very reminiscent of a fresh snow fall.  We here at Bern’s have chosen some of our favorites from Germany, Alsace and Austria to show case what the Alps have to offer.     Prost!

    Five cheeses from the Bern’s Cave du Fromage will be paired with the wines, along with house made breads. The price is $25.00 per person. Reservations are requested and seats are limited, book your seat by hitting the link.

    Featured Wines


    2015 Paul Blanck Furstentum Grand Cru Riesling Alsace, france
    The zestiness on the nose is undeniable but subtle. There is a hint of stone and earth, too. With air, an aromatic edge of pear and apricot appears. The palate comes in with smooth generous fruit. Serene ripe notes of apple and pear are tempered by gentle, but distinct, lemon freshness. This has a fluid, generous and harmonious body and a just off-dry finish. The lemon notes linger long. Drink 2028–2030. 93 points Wine Enthusiast

    2016 Domaine Ostertag Fronholz Pinot Noir, Alsace, France
    A closed nose offers a hint of cherry. The palate follows with a balance of pure cherry, firm tannin and bright freshness graced with a touch of dark peony. This is understated, light-bodied but wonderfully elegant and has a habit of growing on you slowly and stealthily. This has a long and lovely resonance. 93 points Wine enthusiast

    Loimer Extra Brut, Austria
    with four grams of dosage, this pale-colored sparkling opens with a very clear and refreshing bouquet of white fruits and lemon flavors. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling, yet pure and light sparkling wine with great finesse and stimulating citrus flavors; it has grip in the bone dry finish. This is another serious Sekt from Fred Loimer that belongs to the finest Austrian Sekts I have ever tasted. 90 points Robert Parker

    2016 Prager Grüner Veltliner Hinter der Burg Federspiel Wachau Austria
    “A classic nose of green bean, lentil, pear and lime segues into a silken, subtly earthy palate performance enhanced by the crunch and juiciness of cucumber. This finishes with consummate refreshment as well as intrigue born of a striking transparency to shimmering stones, iodine, mineral salts and nutty-vegetal complexity. Not for the first time, Bodenstein has turned out one of those masterful Federspiel bottlings such as too few Wachau growers are motivated to achieve.” 92 points Vinous

    2017 Dr. Thanisch Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett Reisling Mosel, Germany
    The wine shows a pronounced bouquet of very ripe red and yellow fruits with exotic and slightly spicy notes with well-integrated acidity. The slatey minerality so typical of the Mosel adds further complexity. Winemaker notes

    2014 Fritz Hag Estate Riesling Trocken Mosel, Germany
    The Estate Riesling Trocken balances the brisk Mosel Riesling acidity with a delicate texture and an ultra-fine fruitiness. This makes it an excellent choice for a variety of shellfish dishes, and especially ideal as a partner for briny, cold-water oysters. Winemaker notes

    2016 Dr. Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling GG Alte Reben Mosel, Germany
    “Clear, deep and flinty on the nose, with herbal and mineral aromas as well as great purity and precision and a touch of tropical fruit aromas. Salty-piquant and enormously lush but also salty, this is a gorgeous Riesling with very fine tannins, stimulating crystallinity and mineral freshness. This is another highlight of the Loosen crus in 2016. This has great finesse and elegance and is enormously mouthwatering in the finish. Impressive. 95 points Robert Parker
