It’s a long weekend here in Nova Scotia, with Monday being the Natal Day holiday. Do you find in the Summer everything feels like a reason to get together and enjoy a beverage? It’s like Summer is one big patio party, and I’m OK with that. One of my favorite things about Summer, and life in general, is getting together with friends and family and enjoying a glass of good wine. Here’s a few you may want to try.
How about a great valued Malbec from Argentina? 90 Points by many wine critics including Robert Parker and priced under $18. Yes, please!
I had the opportunity to recently try this Riesling from the Saint Clair Family Estate, and it was one of the best I’ve had in a while. Other wine critics seem to agree as it has been awarded as high as 93 Points. I had the pleasure to meet Saint Clair winemaker Kyle Thompson a couple of years back. A very sweet and very talented guy. He is the Senior Winemaker at Saint Clair and I enjoyed trying a few wines with him.
And now for my wine of the week….
Would you look at all the golden circle surrounding this wine bottle! Those are awards. This beautiful baby was a birthday gift from one of my best friends, Sandra Voted the mist admired wine brand in the world, Concha y Toro celebrates 135 years in business this year. This robust Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied with distinctive tannins and notes of leather and cedar. This 2015 is a keeper with lots of aging potential.
Enjoy the weekend, dont drink and drive, and play it safe in the heat
Till next week, Cheers
