Paul Cluver Chardonnay 2021
This is a great expression of a lightly-oaked, cool-climate Chardonnay, bursting with notes of citrus, fresh granny smith and white peach and subtle hints of oak in the background. There is natural, fine and fresh acidity in the mouth, with a lingering aftertaste. The oak is apparent, but well-integrated with the fruit. Pair with baked brie with apples, fettucine alfredo or a roast chicken dinner.
Les Cretes La Sabla 2020
Big and hearty, with bold aromas of cassis, black cherry, ripe strawberry and licorice. On the palate, this is a big, expressive wine. Tannins and acids both provide backbone to the ample black and red berry, spice box and black currant flavours. A long, juicy finish makes this a wonderful partner to a backyard barbecue.
Altocedro Paradoux Red NV
A blend of the classic Bordeaux grape varieties, Paradoux Red is made up of 20% each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon contributes balance and tannic backbone; Merlot adds weight and plushness; Cabernet Franc brings floral elements and elegance; and Malbec adds complexity and weight. Petit Verdot — a grape known for its high acidity and tannin —is the most intriguing element here, providing additional structure and longevity, along with the acidity to make this big-bodied wine more lithe.
