Dear %displayname%,

With Summer officially in full swing it’s time to lighten up a little. There are few things greater than enjoying a  glass of wine surrounded by beautiful sunshine. Summer is the highest grossing time for wine sales and as such, most people are looking for good value and younger, lighter wines.

It’s likely no surprise that whites are favoured during the Summer months but did you know that rosés are one of the best sellers as well? Rosés are fantastically refreshing on a hot day. In the white category some popular choices are Australian or New Zealand sauvignon blanc and South African chenin blanc

But that doesn’t mean you have to forgo a fantastic red. There are plenty of fabulous reds to enjoy during the hot times. You’ll want to look for light to medium, young vibrant reds with good acidity such as a California pinot noir or a Chilean merlot. True to form with their reputation for being versatile, both of these pair very well with a wide range of foods. 

While there are never any rules where your own personal preferences are concerned with wine, from day to day, month to month and season to season, the one thing that is certain is that there is always a special wine to get you through.

New Seasonal Release

We are pleased to announce a unique new red wine kit – one that you can enjoy young and fresh, like a white wine, and is actually ready to drink on bottling day.

Introducing Selection International French Gamay Nouveau.  Like France’s Beaujolais, Winexpert’s Gamay Nouveau is a celebration of harvest season.  Fresh, lush and juicy, this wine is a bold purple-red colour.  Served sightly chilled, it reveals bold fruit, with hints of banana, pear, candy – some even say bubble gum- and the low levels of tanin make it deliciously drinkable in it’s youth.

French Gamay Nouveau is a seasonal release and there will be only a limited quantity produced.  To ensure availability, we must have your pre-orders in by August 4th.  Wine kits will arrive at our store in early September.  $129.95 per kit take home, $199.99 made in-store.  Phone 465-8466 or email reply to reserve yours.  Click HERE for more info.

Even More Limited Editions

This year we are pleased to announce our first value brand limited time offering. 

World Vineyard Chilean Carmenère/Malbec

Chile’s signature grape, Carmenère brings dark cherry, chocolate and tobacco, while Malbec gives black fruits, red berries, spice and great structure, all leading to a lush toasty-smoky finish.

World Vineyard Argentine Chardonnay/Torrontes

Argentina’s greatest white grape, Torrontes has enticing aromas of peach and orange blossoms, citrus and white fruit, complimenting Chardonnay’s tropical fruit and green apple notes to a mouthfiling finish.

Each 10 litre wine kit wil include a package of 30 clear, self-adhesive vinyl bottle labels.  Since these are seasonal releases, there will only be a limited quantity of each variety produced.  Pre-ordering is strongly recommended to ensure availability.  Pre-order deadline is September 7th.  Price per kit is $89.95 take home, $159.99 made in store.  Click HERE for more info on these two seasonal release wine kits.
