What's in the box?
Hey! Thanks for purchasing a Mixed Case of Easy Summer Wine. Here's a quick breakdown of what's in the box and how best to enjoy the bottles.
White 1: Bott-Geyl MetissProducer: Bott-Geyl | Grapes: Riesling & Friends | Where: Alsace, France
Do not fear, this wine is dry! Riesling in a crisp and refreshing style - peach and apple, but also tonnes of citrus and rainwater.
White 2: GrooVee Gruner Veltliner
A most expressive Austrian wine. Savoury green flavours reminiscent of watercress, daikon, lime and waxy apple skin. Pair this with crunchy veggie dishes with aromatic spices, shaved fennel and asparagus, or Thai take out! It's the Ontario farmers market in a bottle.
White 3: Dry Furmint, Tokaji
A stunning dry white with shimmering freshness, lots of apple, elderflower and citrus pith. It cuts through the summer heat in a satisfying way, zing!
Red 1: Bagatelle Cab Franc
The less bold and more shy cousin of Cabernet Sauvignon, give this bottle 30 mins of chill time in the fridge before serving if you can. Lot's of raspberry, sour cherry and jalapeño here. Pairs well with potting kitchen herbs on an overcast afternoon. (Bottled with a low dose of sulphur - some variation over time with air).
Red 2: Ciaülà Côtes du Rhone
Producer: Domaine l'Agramante | Grapes: Grenache & Syrah (and a squeeze of Counoise) | Where: Cotes du Rhone, France
The boldest of the bunch, this is ripe and smooth Grenache & Syrah. Expect wild strawberries, a touch of woodsy spice, and a soft-edged structure in the finish. Awesome with grilled and scorched flavours, chewy proteins, and fading sunsets.
Red 3: La Sambinerie Beaujolais-Villages
The juiciest of the bunch - think red summer berry fruit smashed in your palm. Pretty pink florals and 10/10 for drinkability, this smile-inducing bottle comes from organic vines on granite soils.
By no means is wine tasting an exact science - have fun & enjoy.
