ENO Wine Bar next door to Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC has given its wine list the perfect mid-summer makeover, including rare and organic vintage imports arriving just in time for the hottest days of the season. To celebrate these fantastic wines, ENO has created its special Mid-Summer Riesling tasting flight that explores the broad tasting notes of riesling wines. Featured wines include:
Kunstler Estate Trocken, 2014: A dry, racy riesling with hints of mineral and cox-orange apples
Darting Ungsteiner Weilberg Kabinett Trocken, 2014: A refined off-dry riesling with citrus fruit, herbal tones and nuances of balsam
Minges Pfalz Kabinett, 2014: A spicy and zippy riesling with hints of talc and eucalyptus that feints dry, but finishes with sweet pineapple notes
To highlight the diverse tasting notes of each riesling, ENO has created a trio of summer mini-tarts to accompany each wine. The trio consists of savoury, sweet and spicy selections that include:
A savoury tomato tart to pair with the Kunstler Estate Trocken riesling
A sweet peach tart to pair with the Darting Ungsteiner Weilberg riesling
A spicy crab tart to pair with the Minges Pfalz riesling
The specialty wine flight is priced at USD 18, and the accompanying mini-tart trio is priced at USD 12.
Other German riesling and Austrian grüner wines by the glass such as the Dönnhoff Estate Riesling Trocken, 2015 and Hirsch Grüner Veltliner, 2014 start at USD 12.
In celebration of long, summer nights, ENO Wine Bar will offer 30 percent off all riesling wine bottles for the entire month of August 2016.
ENO Wine Bar is also offering guests an escape to those balmy DC summer afternoons with live music and wine at its Riesling Summer Party on Saturday, August 27, 2016 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Guests will enjoy specially crafted riesling flights along with a cheese and charcuterie station. The event is priced at USD 30 per person including tax and gratuity. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.
