Caturday Collection Whites Case + Paws-itively Purr-fect Whites Trio
Your Paws-itively Purr-fect Whites Trio includes these 3 fur-nomenal wines:
2015 Vinum Chenin Blanc - South Africa (x3)
Vinum Africa is a winery that loves a challenge. So when they looked at Chenin Blanc, the former “ugly duckling” of Stellenbosch, they knew they could make great wine from the oft neglected grape. Once again, they stepped up and performed beautifully. After a single sniff one can already sense the elegance and vibrancy it possesses. The notes of white petals and crisp citrus are sure to excite. The palate has layers of fresh lime and gentle spices all underscored by fruit. The wine finishes with a refreshing minerality the lets the fruit resonate. This Chenin Blanc is highly versatile and may go best with somewhat exotic cuisine—Thai or Indian, perhaps?
Your Caturday Collection Whites Case includes 2 bottles each of:
2015 Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay - California
Citrus, apple and tropical fruit flavors mingle with a gentle acidity in this light, unoaked Chardonnay. 2015 Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay is remarkably refreshing, and begs for a pairing with buttery seafood, chicken, or pasta dishes, and even savory sides like mashed potatoes and gravy.

2015 La Petite Tour Classic White - Callifornia
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
