Pallet bartender Matt Pfohl has made arrangements to bring you some special wines you can't find anywhere else in Utah.
Pfohl's cocktail menu shows an ambition for providing unique offerings to the Wasatch Front, but he's taking that to a whole new level with these unique wine offerings.
Bodegas Godelia Blanco is a crisp and slightly fruity white wine, largely made from godella grapes grown on centuries-old vines. From the Bierzo region on the northwest Spanish coast, the wine features a slight hint of quininine, adding to its freshness and zest.
It pairs especially well with Pallet's salmon entree or scallops.
Next is a classic variety from Basque Country: txakolina by Ulacia 2011. Made from a blend of grapes grown in salty sea air, this wine creates a greater fizz when poured from great heights into a cocktail glass. It's almost like you can taste the sea a little bit in this super-fresh wine.
Txakolina is a everyday/any occasion celebration kind of drink. Have a glass from the Basque, and relax.
These are the first two wines Pallet is offering exclusively in Utah, but they won't be the last. Ask your server or check in with bartender Matt Pfohl about any updates.
