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

Red Wine

Condado De Haza Crianza 2014, Ribera Del Duero D.O., Spain: I love the mature taste of this wine: leather, spice and smoke with a backdrop of dried red fruit. Chewy and savoury and ready to drink now. Winemaker Alejandro Fern├índez is a widely respected vintner in the region. Ready to drink now or try if you can, to cellar it for a few years for even more pleasure. Pair with rack of lamb. Food pairings: lamb, roast suckling pig, sirloin steaks, semi-cured sheep cheese, short ribs. Drink: 2018 - 2022 963348 14% D 750 mL $28.95 Score: 90/100. June 2018. Top Rated Red Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
