Chocolate, Raspberry Jam, Vanilla
Chicken Pot Pie, Spiced Hummus, Sangria
For around $13 there are many other bottles that can compete for your hard earn cash. The fruit and oak were hard to pick out and I didn’t find myself going back for a second glass.
For the same price, I suggest one of my top picks Fuzion Organic Malbec Cabernet
Pear, Lemon, Green Apple
Popcorn, Omelettes, Quiche
This wine was a bit of a surprise being under ten dollars. It has a distinctly citrus/lemon scent when you smell it. On the taste, I found melon, apple, and very ripe pear. The challenge I found with the wine is that it’s all a bit smashed together. Reminds me of those fruit cups in a tin drowned in syrup. Every bite tastes different and simultaneously the same. Strong mouthfeel, coats your mouth, almost oily. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes we like a good fruit cup.
Chenin Blanc is a very underrated grape and can range from tropical to honey in flavour. I highly recommend everyone try it. It’s like a Chardonnay and a Dry Riesling had a baby.
Black Cherry, Plum, Blackcurrant
Lamb, Roasted Chicken, Shawarma
The first word that popped in to my head when I tasted this wine was “inoffensive”. It’s a Goldilocks wine. Not too sweet, not too dry, not too anything. This is in no way an insult. A great pick when you don’t know what your guests like or what to pair with dinner. The name is likely a play on the French Côtes du Rône – cute.
