Smooth, crisp, bright, aromatic, sweet and fresh are just some of the words to describe our spring wines. Spring is about a new time with blooming flowers and warmer temperatures. Celebrate this time of year with our selections guaranteed to banish any thoughts of winter.
One of my favorite wines for spring is the J Vineyards Pinot Gris. It’s bright and aromatic with zesty flavors of Meyer lemon, Asian pear and tropical fruits. This medium-bodied white has layers of luscious fruit, floral notes and balanced acidity. It is perfect for casual entertaining or dining Al Fresco.
Pieropan Soave Classico
The next time you’re in the mood for an Italian white wine, this is the one to try. Soave is making a comeback, thanks to producers like Pieropan. They have been producing Soave since the 1860s, and their focus is quality, not quantity. This elegant wine reveals flavors of crisp apple, lemon peel and toasted almond. The finish is clean, refreshing and surprisingly long. Pair with shellfish, pesto pasta or lobster risotto for a delectable meal.
A unique blend of moscato and mango pulp creates a delicious, sparkling sipper. It’s light and refreshing with lively flavors of mango sorbet, orange blossom and honey. This wine is perfect for brunch, picnics, hot tubs or any other occasion. Tip: Bring to a party—you’ll be the most popular one there!
This limited release red blend is the perfect spring fling. It’s fresh, fruity and very addicting. The palate is bursting with ripe cherry and berry flavors followed by seductive notes of chocolate and spice. Pair with pizza, pasta, burgers or barbecue and plan on love at first sip.
Angeline Reserve Pinot Noir
Looking for an affordable wine that is always a crowd pleaser? Pick up a bottle of Angeline Reserve Pinot Noir. It’s well balanced with intense flavors of strawberry, cherry, cola and vanilla. Velvety tannins and hints of toasted oak linger on the smooth finish. It is delicious by itself, and extremely versatile with food. Try with salmon and wild mushroom ravioli for an extraordinary dining experience.
