White Wine

Bellingham The Bernard Series Chenin Blanc 2016, Coastal Region W.O., South Africa: This is a gorgeous South African Chenin Blanc! There is nothing else like it, and as far as I'm concerned no one, does it better. Aromas of white peach, almonds and lemon-lanolin. The grapes are grown on 40-year-old bush vines. Almost full-bodied and brimming with character. Pair with roast chicken. Chenin Blanc food pairings: roast chicken, crab cakes with lemon garlic aioli, fish tacos. Drink: 2018 - 2022 12724 14% D 750 mL $29.95 Score: 93/100. June 2018. Top Rated White Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart

Casas del Bosque Reserva Carmenère 2016, Rapel Valley D.O., Chile: Very succulent and juicy with rich layers of fleshy ripe plum and dark berries with a lick of spice. Such a great value. Pair with grilled meats. Carmenère food pairings: meaty stews, vegetarian lasagne, slow-braised lamb shanks in red wine sauce.
