We won’t judge if you want to wear white after Labor Day, and we certainly won’t judge if you still want to drink white! Along with a classic chardonnay and flavorful Viognier, this month we’re also featuring a balanced red blend from Italy and sparkling rosé in a can. Sip your way into September with our latest Wines of the Month!
Domaine Chanson Viré-Clessé: The two tiny villages of Viré and Clessé are located in the heart of the Macon wine region in France and are known for producing outstanding chardonnay wines. This 2015 version has fresh peach, apple and oyster shell mineral notes, with a long creamy finish. Rated 91 points by Wine Spectator.
Canteen Wine Co. Bright Star Sparkling Rosé: Yes, we can, and you should, too! This go-anywhere sparkling rosé is perfect to pair with life outdoors. With a resealable lid, it’s made for all your on-the-go adventures. Bright, light red berry fruits with a nice spritz on the tongue make this an easy-drinking, anytime wine.
Antinori Il Bruciato: With grapes grown near the coast in the Bolgheri region of Italy, this is a great example of a new-world wine from an old-world producer. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and Syrah, this elegant and balanced wine has a mix of red and dark berry fruits with hints of black tea and spice rounding it out.
Cline Viognier: The Viognier grape is extremely fickle to grow and its thick skin requires patience to achieve the full flavor potential of the grape, but somehow Cline manages to do just fine every year with this bottling. Tropical flavors of pineapple and peach with underlying citrus notes are found in this perfumed, medium-bodied wine.
