Cuvée Joëlle Malbec et Merlot - France
Among the many noteworthy French grapes, two have become especially treasured for their stunning wines. Malbec has a dark, rustic nature, while Merlot features a soft, fruit forward, and herbaceous character. When blended, they craft a unique flavor. Cuvèe Joëlle fuses red plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, and fresh herbs. This exciting red blend is meant to be paired with fun dishes like bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, pungent cheeses, and bacon blue cheese burgers.
Val di Botte Chianti D.O.C.G. - Italy
Chianti is a region in Tuscany, Italy where the wines rival the best in the world. Val Di Botte Chianti is 85% Sangiovese, topped off with a blend of Canaiolo Nero and Cabernet Sauvignon. The results are intense but refined, with a wild berry flavors and a slight smokiness. This Chianti is a delight at the dinner table. Enjoy it with cheese and charcuterie, hearty pastas, pizza, and meat or fish.
Granite Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir - South Africa
Delicate, small Pinot Noir grapes are notoriously difficult to grow. When properly ripened, they result in one of the most coveted red wines in the world. Staying true to the varietal’s light, bright red color, Granite Ridge Pinot Noir has beautiful cherry and cranberry flavors, hints of fresh herbs, and an elegant, low-acid mouth feel. Granite Ridge Pinot Noir is a crowd-pleaser, pairing with a wide variety of foods, from meatier fishes, to gamier poultry, to herb-covered white pizza.
Cala De Poeti Vermentino- Italy
Made from 100% Vermentino grapes nourished by sea breezes in sunny Tuscany, 2015 Cala de Poeti Vermentino bursts with opulent flavor and a radiant freshness. This carefree Italian white is complex, with notes of peaches, flowers, sage, and rosemary, and a nice minerality. We love it chilled with chicken salad, and it’s lovely with any white meat or fish.
Longitude White Blend - Portugal
When we think of white wine, we think of summer evenings in the backyard, sharing stories with a friend or two, eating buttery seafood with fresh green salad. Longitude White Blend is crisp and easy to drink, delivering flavors of melon, honey, and citrus with a vibrant finish. This is the wine that you want to have chilled and ready in case someone drops by.
Blume Verdejo - Spain
From the Iberian Peninsula, where the perfect climate ensures bright and inviting wines, Blume Verdejo flaunts juicy tangerine, orange peel, and white flower flavors, with a slight hint of fennel in the sweet aroma. This stunning Spanish white is pale yellow with subtle golden hues, a medium body, and a dry finish. Blume Verdejo scored 91 points in the 2014 Ultimate Wine Challenge and a Bronze medal in the 2014 Decanter Wine Awards.
