Autumnal Whites Party Pack
We refuse to stop drinking white wines because it’s getting cold out, and neither should you! Here are some fall appropriate beauties that you should definitely consume whilst wearing a puffy vest, and a cute tuque. All packs come with a reusable Sips tote.
Château de Montfaucon 2018 ‘Comtesse Madeleine’ Lirac, Côtes du Rhône, Marsanne/Clairette/Grenache Blanc/Picpoul 13.5% ABV
Château de Montfaucon is steeped in history, the original tower was built in the 11th century, a strategic point between the French kingdom and the holy Roman German empire. Added to and rebuilt multiple times throughout the centuries, the castle still stands now housing a winery, now run by Rodolphe de Pins. Named for Rudy’s grandmother, this wine is much like her- elegant and powerful. Aged for 8 months in French oak, this wine has a fantastic creamy texture, notes tangerine, melon, and honeysuckle. This wine will definitely make you feel a little posh whilst you enjoy it.
Serra & Barcelo 2017 ‘Aucalà Blanco’ Garnacha Blanca, Terra Alta, Spain 3.5% ABV
A 4th generation winemaker, Josep Serra grew up in Ribera del Ebre, between Priorat and Terra Alta. After working on several projects for other producers he decided it was time to put his name on something great. He rents several plots in Terra Alta where he grows Garnacha Blanca. This Mediterranean white has amazingly rich body, without being oily, notes of green fruits- apple, quince, melon, and a fresh salinity. Excellent with heavier seafood, or white meats.
Hidden Bench 2017 ‘Felseck’ Chardonnay, Beamsville Bench, Niagara, Canada 13.5% ABV
Chardonnay is a real chameleon meaning it’s kind of perfect all year round, but we think Hidden Bench’s ‘Felsek’ Chardonnay is perfect for transitioning into colder weather. Named for the vigneron Harold Thiel’s family farm of the same name, wine’s from this vineyard are known for their distinct minerality and ripe fruit overtones. This wine is organically farmed and aged a mix of new and and mostly old French oak, and a small percentage in concrete egg for 14 months. Rich and toasty, with note of Bartlett pears, stone fruit and flinty acidity, creamy and concentrated on the palate. This wine will continue to evolve in the cellar, but don’t let that stop you from drinking it right now!
