THREE WINES, THREE CHEESES
PRICE: $225 / CLUB: $180
2019 Pinot Gris Reserve & Kunik
Straw-hued, the 2019 Pinot Gris Reserve opens slowly, with a nose that expresses precise layers of baked apple, pear, fresh herbs, and white flowers. In the mouth, it’s fresh and vivid, with partial fermentation in neutral oak puncheons and concrete contributing to a sense of mid-palate richess. Mineral undertones emerge on the finish.
Kunik is a dreamy mold-ripened goat’s milk cheese spiked with fresh Jersey cream in the Adirondack Mountains at Nettle Meadow Farm. When young, Kunik has the texture of cold butter, and is light, tangy, and similar to crème fraîche in flavor. As it ripens, it becomes more supple and gamey, and the goat cheese flavors are more assertive.
2018 Pinot Noir Reserve & Cave Aged Cheddar
“Very complex, assertive pinot with aromas of violets and blueberries and a fresh, sous-bois layer, too. The palate has a very composed feel with bright blueberries and smoothly delivered richness in the tannin department.” 93 Points | James Suckling
An award-winning cheddar that’s aged in the cellars at Jasper Hill Farm until it is sharp, mature, and delicious. The finished cheese is released for sale when it displays the perfect balance of savory depth, lactic brightness, and salt caramel sweetness.
2017 Three Hills Cuvée Pinot Noir & Raclette
“This wine is jubilant. A blend of fruit from the Lange’s longtime fruit sources, including the Dundee Hills Estate and Freedom Hill, this is plump and forward without being overboard. A juicy freshness propels the vibrant notes of spiced cherry and tobacco.” 92 Points “Year’s Best US Pinot Noirs” | Wine & Spirits
This Alpine-style cheese from Spring Brook Farm represents the efforts of cheesemaker Jeremy Stephenson and a young French dairy consultant who hails from the Alps. Reading Raclette is a semi-firm wheel of raw cow’s milk cheese that is washed with saltwater brine until it matures at the tender age of 3-4 months. It’s a pliant, supple cheese with heady fruit flavors and rich milky notes.
