A rich Argentinian Malbec with sweet spice and smokey notes. Lots of cherry and dark red fruit aromas. This one won’t break the bank. Pair with a pesto pasta. Tasted: Sept 2022.

I think I found a new weekday, great value wine! A lovely Pinot Grigio from Argentina. Perfect with soft cheese, crackers and sun-dried tomatoes. Cirrus and tropical fruit notes. More body and complexity than you would expect at this price. Tasted: Sept 2022

California Roots Chardonnay 2021

Gwen scored this wine: 91/100

Good value Cali Chardonnay. Well structured with notes of peach and tropical fruit. On the lighter side- gentle oak influence from more time in stainless steel than barrels. My kind of chard! Why not go the “perfect pairing “ route and break out that big bowl of popcorn with a glass of this nicely chilled wine. Tasted Sept 2022

Light to medium intensity aromas of earth, leather and red currant. Subtle black fruit and raspberry on the palate. A wee bit tart with hint of sweetness, Not overly complex, but definitely food friendly and enjoyable- and decent price point. Pair with sirloin burger and fries! Tasted Jan 2022

Impressive expression of one of my favourite Italian grapes (Think Chianti!). Cherry, cranberry and earth notes. Med-full bodied, with good structure. Lingering finish with notes of chocolate and warm spice. Pair with your favourite pizza. Tasted Jan 2022.
