6 Week Wine Kits – 16L WHITE WINES
AUSTRALIAN TRIO – Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay
The Australian Trio Blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Chardonnay is a sophisticated wine with a range of flavors. A medium to full bodied white wine with a dry feel and bright acidity, the Sauvignon Blanc in this blend offers the crisp, smoky flavors of apple, grass, and olive, while the Chardonnay lends notes of buttery oak and Semillon provides a nutty, figgy aspect to its profile. This blend is extremely versatile, pairing well with stews, cream sauces, fresh salads and spicier fair. The blend shines especially well with chicken or most seafood.
CANADIAN TRIO – Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio
Buttery oak tones combine with the fresh fruit flavors of apple, apricot and melon in this rich, easy-drinking and versatile wine. To produce this popular blend, smoky Chardonnay is combined with Riesling’s hints of fresh pear and apricot offset by bold floral and honey undertones and Pinot Grigio’s crisp flavors of honey, wildflower and smoke. The result is a blended white wine that pairs well with grilled, roasted, or sautéed dishes, be it white meat or seafood. Veal, pasta and soft, bold cheeses such as Camembert, Feta, Swiss and Havarti also work well, as do blue-veined cheeses and some chocolate-based treats.
GERMAN TRIO – Riesling, Muller Thurgau, Gewurztraminer
The intense flavors of fresh pear and apricot offset by bold floral and honey undertones that is Riesling, combine with the straw-coloured tastes of pear, apricot, and tropical fruits for which Muller-Thurgau is known and the lightly oaked whispers of rose, tropical fruit and spice offered by Gewürztraminer to create an extremely versatile white wine blend that is medium-bodied and on the sweeter side. A fantastic crowd-pleaser, the German Trio is perfect to serve at casual gatherings or as a sipping wine, and can even complement many desserts, including chocolate based ones and apple pie. Serve this blend with bold cheeses, soft ripened cheeses, seafood, chicken, or spicy foods found in Thai or Middle Eastern Cuisine.
