Five Wines to Warm You Up this Winter.
During those chilly winter days, nothing can pronounce ‘snuggling up’ like a nice fragrant wine, whether red or white. So, in spirit of cuddle weather we’ve decided to issue a short list of favorable wines with reviews to leave nothing to guess work, thanks to the folks over at WineMag.com. Enjoy.
Franklin Tate 2013 Tate Chardonnay (Margaret River).
"This is a pretty lean, tightly focused wine. Grilled pineapple and citrus notes broaden slightly on the midpalate, then come together again on the crisp, lemony finish. Drink now through the end of 2015. Best Buy. "—J.C.
Protea 2013 Chenin Blanc (Coastal Region).
"Vibrant, tart gooseberry, plum and lime aromas are upfront on the bouquet, with additional hints of sweet grass and honeysuckle dancing in the background. The palate offers bright acidity and crisp citrus flavors. Drink now." —Lauren Buzzeo
Spiropoulos 2013 Made with Organic Grapes Moschofilero (Mantinia).
"This organic offering from a lauded Moschofilero producer starts with aromas of lemon blossom, rose and wet stone, followed by fresh flavors of citrus, peach and white fruits. Floral and elegant, it should be paired with grilled chicken or full-flavored fish. "—Susan Kostrzewa
Santa Alicia 2012 Gran Reserva de Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon (Maipo Valley).
"Red berry and herbal aromas are firm and focused on the nose. A snappy palate deals savory and fruity flavors of red berry, olive and mint. Firm tannins and driving acidity push the finish a bit further." —M.S.
Echo Bay 2013 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough).
"This is a broadly expansive wine in the mouth, but what it may lack in focus, it makes up for in mouthwatering fruit intensity. Gooseberry and grapefruit lead the way, with just the right amount of herbal flourishes." —Joe Czerwinski
