Overview
The Giorgio Zaglia Winery produces quality wines in Friuli, in the far north-east Italy, in Friuli D.O.C. wines area, where the existence of a consolidated winemaking tradition is unquestionable. The Estate, stretching across a surface of about 30 hectares, is situated in the municipalities of Precenicco and Pocenia, in the south-east of the province of Udine between the Stella and Tagliamento rivers, where the clayey soil, rich in the mineral salt, and the near Adriatic Sea, producing warm and salty air currents, create an extraordinary micro-climate which is ideal for wine growing.


History
Date Founded: 1970
Owner: Giorgio Zaglia
Winery Philosophy: The wines are grown according to low environmental impact standards, the grapes are picked strictly by hand and vinification, based on refined physical techniques rather than chemical, is implemented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. Eventually, fining and ageing both in steel and barrique give birth to a series of balanced white and red classic wines from Friuli, with appreciated genuine and noble features.
Established by Aldo Zaglia in 1970, the winery was taken over by his son Giorgio in the first half of the Eighties. After taking a degree in Agricultural Sciences, he brought in some remarkable changes both in the vineyards and the cellar, getting together old tradition with news technologies. Respect for the environment and constant quality research are the main principles which have been leading Giorgio Zaglia since then. In 1995 he started replanting the vineyards, increasing planting density per hectare, adopting short pruning and shrewd thinning and the most updates and accurate methods needed to obtain wines that enhance the characteristics of the territory where they originate.

Krutz Family Sonoma County Chardonnay 2013

Bright and light golden-yellow in color. Exotic and sweet vanilla bean aromatics backed by pear and kiwi with a slight orange peel. The palate resonates with texture and depth as stone minerality and cream brioche to match. Flavors of roasted plantains, gravenstein apple, and lemon zest frame the wine for a long yet soft finish.

Planted in the early 90’s, this is the coolest vineyard site in the Russian River Valley, located at Lee Martinelli Sr.’s home ranch in Forestville, CA. After riding around with Lee in his pick-up truck when we visited his Woolsey Road, Zio Tony, and River Road Vineyards, he decided to take me to this gem. He kept this particular vineyard in his back pocket until we hit it off. We did, and I think you’ll enjoy the ride as well.


Review:

Elusively crisp and inviting on the nose, this is a thickly intriguing wine, floral in orange blossom and fresh apple. Structured and lengthy, it retains a tangy acidity and structured finish, the grapes sourced from a dry-farmed vineyard. - Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

Hugl Zweigelt Rose 2018

SALE!

Despite its relative youth, Zweigelt is actually an Austrian classic. This variety was created in 1922, when Dr. Fritz Zweigelt crossed two grapes - St Laurent and Blaufränkisch. Originally, it was intended for the new variety to be called Rotburger, referring to the place where it was born, Klosterneuburg. But this name never took hold, and instead, Zweigelt was named after the man who was the key in its development.


Today, Zweigelt is the most widely planted red variety in Austria, growing in nearly 9% of this country's vineyards. It is a robust grape, highly resistant to dryness, frost and various diseases.

The wine boasts a pale rosé color, it has plenty of fruity aromas, with red cherry and wild strawberry flavors. It is medium-bodied, but it still have a nice long and pleasant finish with a light cinnamon type of spice to it.

Only the best grapes are harvested with a lot of experience and know-how and further processed. The grapes are fermented directly gently pressed and cooled. The fermentation takes place exclusively in stainless steel tanks.

Perfectly at home on any picnic, delicious with fried chicken, and tames the heat when paired with spicy dishes. There is also a slight watermelon note that makes it perfect for spring and summer. A great pairing with barbecued shrimp.

James Goddard Shiraz 2018

"With a Barossa heritage of six generations, and years of carefully planned vineyard development, it's little wonder that Thorn-Clarke produces fine and true examples of the wines that have made this region world famous.

Our ancestor James Goddard knew where to dig when he discovered gold in 1870 in the Barossa. Ever since our family has been intrigued by geology. A fine legacy reflected in the family's expertise in knowing in which soils to plant vines that produce wines of outstanding varietalcharacter.

This wine is another fine example of Barossa Shiraz. The bougquet has lifted fruit aromas, white the palate displays typical varietal Shiraz characters of chocolate and plum fruit. Expert use of mainly American oak has resulted in subtle vanillin flavors." -David Clarke, Vigneron
