Middle-Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Nelson, South Island, New Zealand
257 days ago

Kendra & Matthew scored this wine: 91/100

This wine is extremely aromatic + fruit forward. Notes of tropical fruit ; pineapple, mango with well balance acidity. It was drinking beautifully with our shrimp cocktail. It is also so approachable that it would be a great crowd pleasing NZ Sauv Blanc.

This approachable red blend has notes of blackberry + spice on the notes. With great tannin structure on the palate. Plum, cherry + cedar with a smooth finish. For $20, you really can't go wrong!

This great Charmat method sparkling has lovely acidity with notes of apples, lemon + lime. The perfect wine to pair with seafood or a nice bowl of buttery popcorn.

Centenario

Bodega Toro Winery Centenario Malbec 2019

Mendoza, Argentina
281 days ago

Kendra & Matthew scored this wine: 85/100

Great Argentinian Malbec - balanced acidity with notes of plum, blackberry + spice. It had some smoke + earthy notes on the palate. It paired quite well with our smoked ribs. For under $10, we would buy again!

St. David's Bench Vineyard

Ch√Ęteau des Charmes St. David's Bench Vineyard Gamay Noir Droit 2017

St. David's Bench, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
288 days ago

Kendra & Matthew scored this wine: 89/100

This Gamay has notes of cherry + berry but a great hint of smokeyness as well. A bit more body than your typical gamay given the "droit" vines. It also has a bit of oak to it, even though it is not oak aged. Love the pepper undertone to this gamay - perfect slightly chilled with BBQ.
