Cloudy Bay Chardonnay

Cloudy Bay Chardonnay

For wine enthusiasts seeking elegance and gastronomic adventures, Cloudy Bay Chardonnay is an essential addition to your wishlist. It is made using traditional techniques, a wine that exudes sophistication and can be paired flawlessly with festive feasts, including roast turkey, butter-basted lobster, creamy risotto, herb-roasted chicken, and pecan pie.

Upon uncorking, it unveils an inviting bouquet of white peach, apricot, ripe citrus, and the comforting aroma of warm hay. With a burst of ripe lemon, the palate dances with the opulence of yellow stone fruit, harmoniously framed by mouthwatering saline acidity. It has subtle notes of toast that provide a savory foundation to the luscious fruit, delivering a captivating and perfectly balanced sip.

Corte Giara Valpolicella Ripasso

Make your Christmas truly special with the Corte Giara Valpolicella Ripasso, bringing warmth and tradition to your table. With a deep ruby-red hue, it boasts a blend of ripe red fruit, subtle spice, and a hint of cocoa on the nose. It also offers a velvety richness on the palate, with flavors of dark cherries, plum, and a touch of vanilla.

As you savor this, consider pairing it with classic Christmas dishes like roast lamb, hearty pasta dishes, or even a charcuterie board laden with artisanal cheeses and cured meats. Its rich and full-bodied character will enhance your dining experience, making it an unforgettable addition to your holiday celebrations.

Trapiche Merlot

Infused with the charm of Spanish red grape varieties, Trepat and Garnacha, it boasts a subtle, inviting hue.
