Five impressive wines for Fall

Five-impressive-wines-for-Fall-min

The strange times continue to roll in with the second wave of COVID-19 and we don’t seem to totally break free from the human confinement idea. In this article we will explore wines for Fall.

The human condition has been temporarily halted. As I write these lines, the hospitality and cultural sectors are being closed down.

I would like to propose to you five intriguing wines to enjoy with your next takeout meal.

Wines for Fall

Prosecco Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Superiore – Sommariva – $19.95 SAQ # 14444391

Fantastic Prosecco under $20. Lovely citric fruit profile reminiscent of lemon zest and puree with a hint of vanilla bean. Dry and very refreshing. It has a beautiful structure. Quite stylish Italian sparkler.

Valle del Maule-Chile, Laberinto Sauvignon 2019 – Rafael Tirado $25.00 SAQ # 14479139

Green olives with a hint of green pepper complemented by ripe white fruit and medicinal herbs  Medium to full body.Vegetal and peppery. High strung acidity finishing off  with a clean finale. Great  original in style

Navarra Emilio Valerie 2017 – Laderas de Montejurra – $18.20 SAQ # 14182458

Ripe blue fruit with notes of  menthol and smoke. It really pleases me. Elegant with a slight funky note. Full body with a meaty structure. Powerful. Oak aging is present but used in moderation. A beauty of a wine under $20.

Dao, Outeiro, Quinta da Pellada – $16.65 SAQ # 14346176

Classic Portuguese nose. Smoky black fruit with a cool mineral profile. A good  spice note as well. Full body with soft tannins as well  Round. Perfect weekday wine. Only $16.65

CVNE Gran Reserva 2013 – $28.30 SAQ #12591944

Classic Rioja nose. Great nose reminiscent of prune jam, cigar box, marjoram and balsamic undertones. Full body, noble structure with quite smooth tannins. Flavours bring to mind hazelnuts, cocoa and leather. Wood treatment is elegant. Should be fine to drink now but it should improve in the next 3-5 years.
