Savour Wine And Cheese Customer Advisory

First, let me say - We are open and plan to stay open with our winter schedule if at all possible!  
We will comply with any city, state or federal directives, of course.  But, I plan to be here - and don't forget, we deliver for free on Cape Ann (details below).

We have a policy in place informed by the CDC and the Commonwealth's Department of Public Health, along with common sense practices to minimize risk. We are confident our hygienic precautions offer an as-safe-as-possible experience at Savour. Following guidance avoiding risks associated with large public gatherings, and due to the popularity and store-wide attendance of our annual Spring Grand Wine Tasting, we are tentatively re-scheduling the Tasting to Sunday, April 26. (We will keep you posted).
In addition to providing updates as the event approaches, we will continue to provide a consistent, hi-value hygienic environment. At this extraordinary time, it is our job to offer a shopping experience in concert with your needs. Remember, if you cannot get in, we deliver, even if the store is closed during regualr hours.  You can email me at Kathleen@savourwineandcheese.com if we must close. Otherwise, call in and we will get your wine delivery out to you at home! We require a minimum purchase of $50.00, but the delivery itself is free! Same or next day delivery, as long as someone over 21 is home to receive the purchase. We also require a phone number of the recipient, so we can call ahead. Stay safe and healthy!

Tetramythos Roditis, 2018 - $14.99
100% Roditis wine produced from four vineyards in the village of Ano Diakopto in the P.D.O zone of Patras at altitudes 600-850m. Unirrigated bushvines, 21-37 years old, cultivated in limestone soil, provide low-yield, high-quality grapes with fresh acidity. Classical white vinification, using only the free run must. Long fermentation, with wild yeasts, followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Golden-yellow color, apple, yeasty oyster shells and bergamot flavor. Full mouthfeel with crisp acidity. Fabulous with seafood of all kinds, especially delicately-flavored fish, clams in white sauce and mussels with a garlic wine broth. A great buy!
 
Tetramythos Agiorgitiko, 2017 - $14.99
100% Agiorgitiko organic certified wine with minimal intervention. From a north-facing single vineyard in the village of Ano Diacopto in the P.G.I. zone of Achaia on the Peloponnesian peninsula. The vines were 12 years old, non irrigated and cultivated in limestone soil, producing
     low yield high quality grapes with significant high natural acidity. The wine is made with natural wild yeast, followed by by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Aging on the light wine lees for 3 months. Only the free run wine is bottled. Deep red color, with violet, cherry and prune aromas. Velvety and rich mouthfeel. A perfect accompaniment to red meats, pastas, grilled dishes and hard yellow cheese.
 
Domaine Zafeirakis Malagousia, 2018 - $19.99
unique winery for its standards was established in the Tyrnavos region in 2012. The Zafeiraki Winery is located in region "Palaiomylos" in Tyrnavos.   The soil is characterized as clay with a high concentration of flint stone.  The low-lying vineyards in Tyrnavos beneath the foothills of Mt. Olympus are blessed with mineral-rich soils (from what was once an inland sea). Owing to very warm ripening conditions, the Malagousia is picked early so as to balance the alluring aromatics of the varietal with freshness and acidity in the wine. A true benchmark for Malagousia!
Christos Zafeirakis' wines are all certified organic. Spontaneous yeast fermentation is a must, whether the vinfication is happening in stainless steel or in the 1200L Austrian fermentors he employs for his reds. Additionally an intensive selection massale is taking place at Domaine Zafeirakis, and he continues to refine the clonal selection through this process to raise the bar of his wines year after year.
 
Domaine Zaefeirakis Rosé, 2018 - $19.99
A delicious rosé, from an obscure native varietal, Limniona, from Thessalia, Greece that Christos Zafeirakis worked tirelessly to reintroduce after having gone nearly extinct due to the arrival of phylloxara in the early 20th centuryClear, soft intensity, salmon. Expressive aromas of red fruit, cranberry and wild-strawberry, flower, caramel and Mediterranean herbs. Lively acidity, ideally mixed with the intensity of fruit in an unexpected wrap of freshness, with a small appetizing acidity. A good choice for fried or steamed fish with oregano dressing, pasta with vegetables, mousaka or mozzarella and prosciutto pizza. This is a wonderfully flavorful wine I love with shrimp sautéed in garlic, olive oil, lemon, and herbs. Try the recipe below - delicious over pasta or steamed spaghetti squash. We tried this or our Portugeses seminar and it was easy to make and absolutely delicious!

Spicy Sautéed Shrimp with Garlic and Cilantro
To get the most out of these garlicky, spicy shrimp from chef Abraham Conlon of Chicago's Fat Rice, serve them with loads of crusty bread to soak up the sauce.  
 
Ingredients
2 pounds large shrimp, shelled and deveined
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
1/2 cup Portuguese white wine, such as Vinho Verde
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
 
Season the shrimp with salt and black pepper. In a very large skillet, heat the olive oil with the bay leaves over moderately high heat until shimmering. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until just pink, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook, tossing, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Carefully add the wine and simmer until the shrimp are white throughout, about 2 minutes longer. Discard the bay leaves. Stir in the 1/2 cup of cilantro and season with salt and black pepper. Transfer the shrimp and their sauce to a large, deep platter, garnish with cilantro and serve.
Suggested Pairing
Portuguese whites made from the Loureiro grape have a fruity quality that's great with garlic flavors. Try Quinta do Ameal Loureiro from Portugal for $17.99. Delicious and unique!
 
Vaeni Naoussa Xinomavro, 2017 - $14.99
Made from 100% Xinamavro, a noble, indigenous variety, which has been cultivated in Greece for hundreds of years. Also known as Mavro Naoussis, Popolka, Popoliko or Mavro Xino. Dry wine, designated with the Naoussa Appellation of High Quality Origin, is exclusively made from the red grape Xinomavro, which is well adapted to continental climates. Xinomavro can be found in many areas, unlike other varieties. However, it is in the Naoussa commune that maturity can easily reach optimum levels. The grapes acheive excellent aromatic potential during fermentation and wood ageing. Moreover, there is a balance of fruit, acid and tannins.
 The climatic factors are favorable for these hillside vineyards. The vineyards are located on the southeastern slopes of mount Vermion, protected from the cold northern winds, while they take advantage of the sun's warm rays during midday.
Wines that are marketed with an «Appellation of Origin» are noted for their dark red color, characteristic fruity aromas which evolve into a rich bouquet during their one-year ageing in oak barrels (obligatory through legislation). A kaleidoscope of raspberries, vanilla and cinnamon compliment a well structured, rich and a wine sufficiently tannic to age.
