[ Drink it ] Spring Wine Picks

Spring is here! As you freshen up your home, why not freshen up your wine rack? These are the wines that I’ll be drinking as we head into warmer weather. Cheers!

E & J Gallo White Zinfandel ($10)is one of my favourite wines! I love white zinfandel, and this blend is on the sweeter side, and delicious. It has a beautiful pink colour and has flavours of berry.

La Marca Prosecco ($17) is a bright, off-dry, Prosecco with notes of apple, pear, and lemon zest. This goes great with goat cheese bruschetta or to top off a mimosa.

Fresh Possibilities Sparkling Rosé ($16) This fresh faced bottle says it all. Nothing says spring quite like rosé. This perfect blend of Riesling and Gamay is a favourite of mine. The rose has notes of cherry, strawberry and strawberry jam. Yum!

FRESH Beginnings Moscato ($13) I love the illustration on this bottle! This Moscato wine pairs well with salty meats like ham or bacon. It has notes of orange and is an off-dry wine.

EastDell Pinot Noir 2016 ($14) I still prefer white wines to reds, although when paired with food I do enjoy a good Pinot. This wine is medium bodied with notes of black cherry and cranberry. It goes well with roast turkey, or turkey pot pie.

Lakeview Cellars Videal Icewine ($22) is delicious as a dessert wine. It tastes of honey, peach cobbler and pear preserves. I’ll be pairing this guy as an after dinner treat with blue cheese and walnuts.
