The search for 12 wines from around the world resulted in some new finds for us. We hope you enjoy drinking them, whether you share or drink them alone (we don't judge). A great gift idea as well.
Cafayate Malbec (Argentina)
Delightfully smooth and zesty, dark purple in the glass with earthen tannins, violets on the nose, and it’s so juicy with blueberry and wild blackberry flavors. The grilling possibilities are endless with this full-bodied, versatile red. Try slow roasted hoisin glazed short ribs, or a grilled bacon burger with sriracha mayo and cheddar!
Casa Santos Lima Red Lab (Portugal)
The "Red Blend Portugal" pays homage to the Portuguese producer's art to take the best out of each grape in order to create the perfect blend. This wine presents a nice ruby color and a striking aromatic exuberance. Smooth and elegant, it offers delicious flavors of ripe red fruits well balanced with notes of wood from a four-month aging period in French and American oak barrels. Attractive and savory with ripe fruit and lots of sweet cherries plus spice, licorice and vanilla. Equally perfect with a hearty beef stew or spaghetti Bolognese..
Barbadillo Palomino (Spain)
This is a low-key, charming white wine with fresh and clean aromas and flavors nuanced with hints of minerals from the chalk soils. The wine has low alcohol and a soft round mouth feel. Usually it’s not a great idea to over-chill white wines, but here feel free to go ahead and get this one really cold, then serve it with raw oysters (the season is upon us), cold, cracked crab, or an assortment of tapas.
Domino Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
Dark in color and showcases dark fruits such as blackberry and black plum with a medium body and smooth texture. Pair this cabernet with beef or lamb with seasonal greens.
Pierre Sparr Alsace Pinot Gris (France)
Aromas of warm earth, autumn leaves and juicy apricots are prominent with subtle undertones of minerals. On the palate it is soft with a delicate sweetness-to-acidity ratio, a fancy minerality and a firm, sleek body crowned by a touch of smoky bacon and spice on the finish. Caesar Salad, fried Gruyere cheese sandwich, raclette, egg dishes. Beautiful on its own or chill and enjoy with grilled white-fleshed fish dishes
Castillo de Monseran Garnacha (Spain)
The wine has to be medium-bodied, slightly fruity but not without acidity, smooth, and with a hint a spice. It’s a wine designed to be served with food, in fact an astonishing variety of food, just like one would find travelling in Madrid, Barcelona, or Seville. It’s not a wine that will over power a dish but refresh the palate and prepare the diner for the next bite.
Marchesi Primativo (Italy)
Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape known for producing inky, tannic wines. Fruit driven with notes of cherry, strawberry and dried fig, earthy and rustic, this wine has tons of deep flavor! Pairs well with mild cheeses such as Manchego and provolone, grilled lamb and chicken, and Hearty enough to pair well with a thick red sauce dish!
Essay White (South Africa)
This white blend is Chenin Blanc-driven, which is one of South Africa’s most promising varietals. Chenin Blanc is sometimes referred to as ”Steen,” and is known for its balanced acidity and appetite-whetting aromas of pineapple, litchi, and guava. The addition of Viognier and Roussanne gives the wine an aromatic lift and a touch of richness on the palate.
Chateau La Croix Dumenyieux Blaye (French)
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. Ruby red color. Dark red fruit with hints of violets on nose. Approachable, smooth yet firm tannins. Great for a chilly winter evening.
Montes Alpha Chardonnay (Chile)
Brilliant, light golden-yellow color. The perfumed nose offers notes of cherimoya, ripe pineapple, while hints of pear and banana add complexity to the profile. The palate is focused with crisp acidity complementing a voluptuous structure and body. A certain mineral note, characteristic of the terroir, lingers on in the long and elegant finish. Pairs well with white meat, fish, and pasta.
Badia a Colitbunono Chianti (Italy)
A fresh young Sangiovese with a touch of canaiolo feremented in stainless steel. Medium-bodied with bright acidity and delicious fruit of cherries and dried berries. Perfect with pizza, pasta or even try it with Indian food.
Turasan Selda White (Turkey)
Wine is an adventure and comes from every corner of the world, case in point is the Selda white (named after the winery owner’s wife). Fun and different, this white blend made of indigenous Turkish grapes is medium-bodied with floral aromas followed by stone fruit and a touch of tropical flavors with quenching acidity on the finish. Ideal with a nice Caesar salad or a roasted chicken.
