Natalie MacLean's Wines of the Week - Mar.19, 2018
A terrific Greek red wine made from the Agiorgitiko grape. Aromas of red berries, plum, spice, leather, and fresh earth. Racy acidity for tangy tomato sauce dishes. Supple and smooth. Great value.
Paso Robles, California, United States
Campfire smoke and dark fruit on the nose of this attractive, full-bodied Californian Cabernet Sauvignon from the Paso Robles area. Decant 1-2 hours and pair with prime rib
Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
Crisp and fresh Niagara Chardonnay that's not oak aged. This wine is owned by Shark Tank/Dragon's Den Kevin O'Leary and made by the respected Vineland Estates Winery. Aromas of green apple and Asian pear. Great minerality. Pair with roast chicken or turkey.
Sweetness: Extra Dry
Nahe Qualitätswein, Germany
A gorgeous German Riesling with aromas of peach and pear. Off-dry style, medium-bodied. Perfect for glazed ham or mild curries.
Montilla-Moriles D.O.P., Spain
This lovely sweet-style Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 Sherry is not vintage dated but does have some wine from the 1927 vintages blended in. Dark-hued, rich and complex with aromas of fig jam, molasses and espresso. Great dessert wine.
