White Wine

Domaine Bellevue Touraine Sauvignon 2018, Loire A.C., France: This medium-bodied Touraine Sauvignon is excellent value. On the palate this juicy Sauvignon Blanc is intense, zesty with lime, peach and pink grapefruit flavours on the palate. Pair with a creamy Brie topped with a warm peach coulis or simple with a ripe Camembert cheese - it has that well-known Loire vibrant acidity to handle it. Touraine Sauvignon food pairings: tempura seafood, sushi and sashimi, pan-fried panfish. Drink: 2020 - 2021 82305 12.5% XD 750 mL $16.95 Score: 89/100. July 2020. Best Value White Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart

Red Wine

Rodney Strong Merlot 2016, Sonoma County, California, United States: A crowd-pleaser, easy-to-love Merlot; so smooth and plushy with ripe dark plum, cherry, smoked meat flavours on the palate with a lingering mocha finish. Sit and back and enjoy with grilled burgers. Merlot food pairings: rack of BBQ ribs, veal Porterhouse, grilled lamb, pepper steak, lentil dishes. Drink: 2020 - 2024 497933 14.5% XD 750 mL $23.95 Score: 88/100. July 2020. Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
