What's Happening at Suhru Wines this March

What's Happening at Suhru Wines | March 2022We are starting to come out of the deep freeze of winter and it’s beginning to feel more like Spring every day! By this time of year, we usually have all the white wines and rosé bottled. As we all know Covid has been wreaking havoc on the supply chain, it has now trickled down to Suhru wines both with shipping delays and price increases on everything. Our primary issue is glass bottles. Knowing about supply chain delays, I ordered the glass bottles and my other packaging supplies, screw caps, labels, etc late last summer before we had harvested even one grape. I expected the glass to arrive in December so we could bottle early in January. Well... that didn’t happen. The glass has been sitting on a container ship off the coast of New York waiting for space to come into the harbor and after many long weeks finally arrived!

Our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé were bottled in mid-February and our Pinot Grigio and Dry Riesling will be bottled in the weeks to come. We are excited to share these new releases with you in the coming months and are looking forward to the warmer Spring weather soon to come!

It's another busy month here at Suhru with lots of great events including two wine dinners with local restaurateurs. On Monday, March 7th we are partnering with chef Adam Kaufer of Grace & Grit in Southold for a six-course wine dinner. The Friday before we will also be served at Hamlet Green's Wine Dinner Pop-Up with a three-course menu prepared by Chef Karl McDermott. We hope you will join us for one of these great dinners or stop by the Tasting House this March!

Our March Wine Club is just around the corner and I am very excited for this quarter's selections. The March Wine Club includes a Library wine—2014 Shiraz—and this is especially exciting as this is the first time a Library Wine has been featured in our Club. The tasting notes from its original release describe it as:

“A vibrant wine which has a rich, dark and vibrant hue with aromas of cigar box and dried herbs with a hint of black pepper and spice. It's red fruit and raspberry flavors mingle across the elegant mid palate with silky smooth fine grain tannins.

As a wine ages its flavors continue to age and develop with it so we are looking forward to sharing the experience of tasting this 2014 Shiraz alongside our current 2019 Shiraz during the Wine Club tastings. In addition to the Shiraz, the March Wine Club features our 2017 T'Jara Merlot and 2020 Rosé, three wines perfect for the transition from winter to spring. If you are in our Wine Club be sure to check your email for the dedicated link to make a reservation for the March Wine Club Event which runs March 3rd to March 14th, reservations are required. Each quarter with the release of our Wine Club selections we partner with a local restaurateur or artisan to create a custom pairing menu with our wines. This March we are pairing the wine selections with Disset Chocolate just down the road in Cutchogue. If you haven’t tried the delectable chocolates created by Ursula XVII you are in for a treat. She has created a custom chocolate pairing that will pair beautifully with our wines.
