This 4 bottle pack comes with 2 GoVino Jewel plastic wine tumblers, perfect for the beach, the patio or a picnic.
Wine #1 - Quenard Chignin L' Epure, Savoie FR 2018
This wine comes from the foothills of French Alps in Savoie which as you can guess is a pretty chilly place to grow grapes... because of the cool weather, this wine, which is 100% jacquere, has a bright, crisp quality to it. It shows some tree fruit notes like maybe a freshly cut pear. This wine is delicious as an aperitif or paired with shellfish or salad.
Wine #2 - Bilancia Chardonnay, Hawkes Bay NZ 2016
The chardonnays coming out of New Zealand these days are some of the best in the world and definitely a favorite of mine! One of the characteristics of an excellent Hawkes Bay chard is a slight flinty quality which brings added complexity to this well balanced wine. There is the a small percentage of new oak that brings some richness to the raciness. Pair this with filet of sole or halibut with a buttery sauce. Yummmmm
Wine #3 JoJo's Jetty Rose, Colo River Valley AU 2019
Rose is the drink of Summer and this one is sure to please. Coming from a cool region northwest of Sydney, this wine is easy to drink all by itself but also can work with some tapas such as olives, hard cheeses or charcuterie. You will find some pleasant berry notes and a hint of salinity.
Wine #4 Patricia Green Cellars "Ribbon Ridge" Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley OR 2018
I wanted to include 1 red in this selection and the pinot noirs from Patty Green never disappoint. Be sure and serve this gem at cellar temperature, say 55 degrees or like 20 minutes in the fridge. This wine has the depth to handle the likes of a grilled bone in pork chop but also the finesse of a grilled salmon with a mustard and dill sauce. Dusty cherry and some forward fruit make this wine a favorite of pinot lovers.
