Wine Gift Club Selections for August

Trecciano Chianti Colli Senesi 2015
Italy – Sangiovese – Red
Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, this easygoing, friendly red opens with aromas of fresh plum and crushed blue flowers. The juicy palate offers up fleshy black cherry, raspberry and a hint of Mediterranean herb alongside round, soft tannins. Enjoy tonight paired with thin crust oven fired pizza, spaghetti and meatballs or vegetarian lasagna.

Red Sedan Cabernet/Shiraz 2016
Australia – Red
This exceptional Cabernet Shiraz comes from Red Heads Studio, the most exciting and dynamic winemaking project in Australia. It’s where young winemakers can come, in their spare time, (haha) to make wine they want to make, not what their boss tells them to make. Powerful, smooth and racy, just like the car! Huge but beautifully balanced.

Viranel Cuvee Viognier 2016
France - Languedoc-Roussillon – White
This white shows a beautiful golden straw colour with green highlights. Delicate nose of white flowers and citrus fruits. Sweet palate marked by good acidity and dominated by lemon and grapefruit notes, along with apricot aromas. The finish is fresh and lingering. This would pair wonderfully with grilled salmon.

Castello D’Alba Reserva White Douro 2015
Portugal – Douro – White
Bet you’ve never heard of these grapes – Codega, Viosinho and Rabigato. Sound Greek? Just joking, it’s Portuguese and we’re really impressed with the character, texture and price that we see from the Duoro these days. With three months in oak, this white is smooth, full-bodied with good acidity. It starts with aromas of sweet dried fruits and ends with a very firm long finish. We think you’ll enjoy it.

We pick a variety of unique bottles for our gift club members each month. More information about our Gift Club for both Wine and Beer take a look here.
