Want to impress your date? These are my wine picks to do just that ;-)
KUMEU RIVER - ESTATE CHARDONNAY
Kumeu - New Zealand
This wine is available in most BC Liquor stores for $35.00*
Want to impress you mom with a GREAT Chardonnay?! This is it here! It's creamy, buttery, and bit nutty. Amazing smoothy and nicely oaked Chardonnay. I LOVE this wine!!!
ASTROLABE - SAUVIGNON BLANC
Marlborough - New Zealand
Available at most BC Liquor Stores for $23.99*
This is always one of my 'go to' wines because it always delivers and I have yet to meet someone who does not enjoy sipping on this wine!
SANTA MARGHERITA - PROSECCO SUPERIORE (DOCG)
Valdobbiadene - Italy
This wine is available for $21.99* at BC Liquor Stores.
Fresh, fruity and nicely balanced! Really loved this wine and I'm sure your date will to. It's classified as D.O.C.G. There are only around 50-100 wines from Italy with this classification - so this is nothing but the best Prosecco for your date!
Jumellia - Spain
This wine is available at private liquor stores (Marquis Wine Cellars carries this for less than $20). it's a blend of 40% Monestrall, 40% Tempranillo and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a great deal for only $20 as it drinks more like a $30-$40 Napa wine. It's full bodied, has a beautiful elegant nose, perfectly ripen berries and a great finish. For more about this wine, I recently did a video with, John, the owner of Marquis Wine Cellars that you can watch HERE if you like.
