Natalie MacLean's Wines of the Week - Nov. 27, 2017
Navarra D.O., Spain
Juicy, complex, concentrated and rich: this is a staggeringly great value for the money! Fleshy black plums, smoke and pepper. Pair with grilled meats.
Napa Valley, California, United States
A terrific, value-priced Californian Merlot featuring fleshy ripe purple and black plums aromas and flavours. Full-bodied and smooth with juicy acidity. Pair with hamburgers, meat lovers' pizza and stew.
Okanagan Valley, British Columbia BC VQA, Canada
A vibrant, flavourful BC Pinot Gris with aromas of white pear and melon. Pair with roast turkey.
Sweetness: Medium Dry
Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand
So fresh and lively! This is a wonderful New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that bursts from the glass with gooseberry, lime, lemongrass and chives. Pair with vegetarian dishes, seafood, shellfish and mild to medium curries and spices.
Burgundy A.C., France
I almost don't want to review this one as I'd rather hoard it for myself all summer long. Yet again, I will throw myself on the flames of self-sacrifice. This is freakin amazing. Gorgeous rosè. Is the price a typo? Fresh strawberries drying after a summer rain on a July afternoon. Take me there.
Sweetness: Extra Dry
