Food Pairings for Amphora Teroldego Dry Creek Valley Heringer Vineyard
Pronounced “Tey-ROLL-dey-go”. Never heard of this grape? Don’t feel bad, few people have! This varietal hails from northeast Italy, in the province of Trentino-Alto Adige. Even in Italy Teroldego is not especially well-known, and in California, Amphora joins only five or so other wineries producing the varietal. Our inaugural vintage of 2008 shows a unique and seductive profile: deep inky-black purple color, an intriguing nose with a hint of floral perfume, and fleshy, voluptuous texture full of dark fruit flavors. There’s a subtle minerality as well. Think Petite Sirah brushed with Traminer…We love this wine, and its consistency in two subsequent vintages (still aging beautifully in barrel). Our jury is still out on the best food-pairings for this wine, and if you discover any winning ones, we’d love to hear about them!
