Review: 2014 Left Coast Cellars Blanc de Noir

The wines of Oregon’s Left Coast Cellars are no stranger to these pages, and today we look at the latest vintage of the operations chardonnay-driven sparkler, a Blanc de Noir from the 2014 vintage. Big green apple and lime notes hit up front, followed by lots of acidity, some sesame cookie notes, and an ample saline on the finish that evokes the sea. Bold but crisp and refreshing, but there doesn’t seem to be any real digression here from the BdNs of prior vintages from Left Coast — and that’s a good thing.

Review: 2019 Smashberry Chardonnay Paso Robles

2019 Smashberry Chardonnay Paso Robles

Robert Lublin May 5, 2021

For the inaugural release of a white wine in the Smashberry portfolio (which already includes a red and a rosé), the Miller Family Wine Company balanced 95% Chardonnay with 5% Viognier and aged it exclusively in stainless steel. Having spent no time in oak, this wine centers on fruit and offers sweet apple and peach on the nose along with a touch of pineapple. The apple and peach notes carry over to the palate along with a pleasant creaminess and nice acidity, but the finish turns a bit bitter. For the price, this is a nice, uncomplicated, unoaked California chardonnay.

Sarah Hardy & Laura Modi, Co-Founders, Bobbie

The Only Infant Formula Founded and Led by Moms

We forged on through closed daycares, online zoom classes, and babies on our laps, as we built Bobbie. To me, it’s a testament that moms can achieve anything.”

— Laura Modi, Co-Founder, CEO, Bobbie

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ --Bobbie, the first new infant formula company to launch in the U.S. in five years has been chosen as the 2020-21 recipient of the annualM2Moms®MomFirst Award.

According to Nan McCann, founding producer of M2Moms®, “Bobbie is a breakthrough mom brand. The founders and whole team personally understand the guilt and shame of turning to formula and then facing the added frustration of a lack of superior organic options in the U.S. market.”M2Moms®-The Constant Conferenceis a 24/7 online executive learning resource dedicated to helping marketers build better business with today’s moms and families.

The MomFirst Award was introduced eleven years ago at the in-person M2Moms® conference. It is given annually to a woman who started something new, when she, in her own role as a mother, saw a need and filled it, first as a Mom for her own family, and then in the greater marketplace. Laura Modi, co-founder and CEO said, “It is an honor to be recognized with this prestigious award. We endeavored to build a best-in-class product in a legacy space …which is an enormous undertaking…made even more challenging because we did it as a team of women & moms through a pandemic. Plus, I was pregnant and had my third child during the height of the quarantine and right on the heels of our FDA approval. We forged on through closed daycares, online zoom classes, and babies on our laps, as we built Bobbie. To me, it’s a testament that moms can achieve anything.”

Modi continues, “As a mission-first company, we are here to support every feeding journey. And before we even launched, we pledged to give a small group of mastectomy moms a year of free formula. Because shockingly, while these mothers with no breasts could receive a free breast pump through their insurance, they had no financial insurance support for formula. Imagine!”

Contactless payments for mom-and-pop stores in Malaysia - SmartPesa

SoftPOS presents an easy and affordable one-stop contactless payment acceptance solution for small merchants in Malaysia.

SINGAPORE, May 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- As Malaysia (and the world) grapple with the onslaught of COVID-19 cases since last year, businesses have been facing unprecedented challenges as they are forced to adapt operations and business models in response to government measures for curbing transmission.

The situation accelerated the digital transformation of many companies in corporate Malaysia, as they reformed infrastructure and business policies to enable better connectivity and business continuity amidst lockdowns and social distancing. Small merchants, on the other hand, have been struggling to keep up, hampered by lack of support, knowledge and resources in adopting new technology.

CHALLENGES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

A fall in customers has been one of the biggest challenges faced by many small businesses. In the F&B industry, a reduction in dine-in customers in order to comply with social distancing regulation and high transaction costs for food delivery services impacted already thin profit margins.

Moreover, with customers choosing to shop at businesses who offer contactless payments over those who don’t, small businesses are further penalized for not being able to transition into the digital economy quickly.

Review: The Tweeddale Grain of Truth Single Grain Scotch

The Tweeddale Grain of Truth Single Grain Scotch

Christopher Null May 5, 2021

If you’re at all familiar with The Tweeddale, it’s likely in reference to its origin story in the late 1800s. The brand was a simple, small scale blended Scotch operation operated by one Richard Day, and it appears to have been fairly successful up until World War II, when the business was shuttered.

In 2010 Alasdair Day, Richard’s grandson, revived the brand with the goal of recreating his ancestor’s recipes, which were originally built around eight single malts and one single grain. Today the brand has at least five full-time releases, plus the occasional special edition. The latest is this, “Grain of Truth”, which is made from an unusual composition of 50% wheat whisky and 50% single malt, which is then matured in bourbon barrels and finished for nine months in oloroso sherry hogsheads. No age statement — and also note that there’s a peated version of this whisky, too, which is not reviewed here.

Seasoned single grain drinkers will immediately recognize some of its classic elements, starting with a sharp and grassy character that has plenty of roasted cereal notes to display. There’s grapefruit peel and some pepper in the mix, plus that thin veneer of acetone that tends to follow along with single grain whiskies, even older ones.
