August Bonhomme La Forcine Sancerre ($19.99): A bold, finely balanced Sancerre. Its pale white fruit has an exotic side, bringing a hint of tropical lychee to the juicy green apple and tart lemon curd notes. It’s subtle, sophisticated and clean, a perfect accompaniment ot lighter fare, but delicious as an aperitif.
Confidencial Reserva Tinto ($13.99): Full of tannins at this stage, it shows power and inky density. It’s a blend of more than 10 varieties, giving complexity as well as structure. There is acidity as well, bringing together the rich texture and a solid, wood and dark fruit combination.
Antiche Terre Amarone ($29.99): Intense , deep garnet red in colour. This wine has aromas of ripe plum and red cherry with just a hint of raspberry. The palate is soft, velvety, and medium bodied with a slight aromatic lingering aftertaste. Excellent with most grilled red meats and hard textured mature cheese with fresh bread and olive oil.
