Wine: Pinot Noir
Region: Cote D'or, Burgundy France
Notes: If you are looking for a nice, easy drinking, fruit forward wine this one is for you. This light bodied red is well balanced with cherry, raspberry, red apple, red currant, mint and slight vanilla characteristics. It's not terribly complex but that is part of its charm. It pairs well with cheeses of the region specifically: Epoisses and Brillant Savarin. It's not likely you will find either of these cheeses at your local supermarket you may have to go out of your way to find a cheese shop but the labour is well worth it.
Wine: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Northern Sonoma, California
Notes: Thank you Anna for introducing me to this wine. This is a well made sauvignon blanc and has everything you would expect. Delicious pear, green apple, citrus, green bell pepper hints of minerality, and floral notes all shine through. It's dry with high acid leaving you wanting more with every sip. A very nice wine at a good price.
Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Notes: This is a food wine. Honestly I didn't like it that much on its own it's flavours are spicy and herbaceous with some fruit. It's got a lot of everything; acid, tannin, long finish, medium body. If you want a wine to go with a beef roast, or cured meats or something along those lines this is a good pick. If you want something to drink without food I wouldn't recommend it. But trust me with food this wine goes very well!
