KÖLD SCHAUER is a light, snappy, fresh Kölsch with with a distinctive honeydew melon aroma from Huell Melon hops. Huell Melon is particularly great in lighter styles… and the combination of the distinctive kölsch yeast, pilsner malts, and the complexity of Huell Melon hops is awesome. The Huell Melon hops are 100% sourced directly from Hopfengut farms in Tettnang, Germany. Our dude Lukas Locher runs this amazing farm over there, and they’re one of our best partners. We source all our Tettnanger hops for The Crisp from him, and actually get around 80% of his total crop each year!

2015 Painted Wolf the Den Chenin Blanc
South Africa-Swartland

Winemaker’s Notes: An elegant full bodied wine with tropical flavors of creamy pineapple, melon and vanilla. The wine has a lovely texture with a long finish with enough acid to keep it really fresh and vibrant. The wine has been sealed with a screw cap to maintain its freshness.

2014 Ferrari Carano Merlot
California-Sonoma County

Winemaker’s Note: Select lots of grapes are chosen from their vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and medium-bodied Merlot. This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of plum, chocolate spice, dark berries, coffee, caramel and cedar. A fleshy mouthfeel is followed by flavors of bright, upfront, red fruit, a structured mid-palate and a firm backbone of ripe tannins. This wine has impressive length and a lasting, elegant finish.

2015 Simi Sonoma County Chardonnay
California-Sonoma County

Winemaker’s Notes: The hue of this wine is brilliantly clear, golden straw with glimmers of golden light—a color that dramatically sets the stage for what is to come. The nose is similarly demonstrative, with expressive notes of pineapple, white peach, green apple, Meyer lemon, and orange blossom laced with hints of butter, toasty brioche, and smoke. It all comes together on the palate with zesty, fresh flavors of tangerine, lemon curd, stone fruit, white peach, and nectarine framed by sweet toast and
vanilla followed with wet-stone minerality and orange peel on the finish.

Pair this food-friendly Chardonnay with smoked salmon with lemon aioli and toasted brioche; spot prawns sautéed with garlic, lemon, and parsley; or a caprese salad
with ripe peach slices, basil, and fresh mozzarella.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast: This offers great value for the quality, a mix of salty brine, stone and caramel apple that delves into more voluptuous dabs of pineapple. Light-bodied and food-friendly, it shows focused acidity and restrained oak.

2013 Painted Wolf Guillermo Pinotage
South Africa-Swartland

Winemaker’s Notes: Dark purple in color with a light ruby hue on the robe. The nose offers an assortment of spice, light coconut and cedar spice over dark red berry and dark cherry fruit aromas. Medium fuller bodied, this has a backbone of acidity that gives the red fruit base juiciness and vibrancy. The tannins are finer grained, but firm enough to focus the fruit and give good supporting structure leading to a dry finish, saying this should show well over the next 3 years plus, where it will broaden out and gain more mid palate flesh. With its noted acidity and vibrant fruit base this is made for food and would be a great addition to any outdoor grilling event.

90 Points Robert Parker: The 2013 Guillermo Pinotage is aged in around 25% new oak. It has a commendable bouquet, quite glossy but not overpowering with iodine and blueberry aromas. The
palate is medium-bodied with candied orange peel infusing the blueberry and blackcurrant notes on the entry, a fine line of acidity and a well-balanced, quite focused finish. This is a well-crafted Pinotage from Painted Wolf.
