DeWayne's Pick   (Italy)

ADREOLA AKELUM Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG, Italy

Tasting Notes: Sparkling Wine from Veneto, Italy by Andreola. Varietal; 100% Glera. ABV: 11.5 Drinking window: Now through 2024. Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG "Akelum" is a Veneto wine produced by the Andreola winery, which is part of the line of sparkling wines dedicated to the DOCG of Asolo Prosecco Superiore, the area surrounding the ancient village of Asolo, a few dozen kilometres east of Valdobbiadene. Asolo Prosecco DOCG was created in 2009, and also officially known as Colli Asolani until 2014. It is one of a growing raft of DOCG titles to grace the wine portfolio of the Veneto wine region in northeastern Italy. All Spumante (fully sparkling) wines automatically gain the Superiore designation, as long as they reach 11 percent alcohol by volume. They can be made in a range sweetness levels. According to Italian production regulations for Prosecco, Prosecco Spumante and Prosecco Frizzante, these wines must consist of a minimum of 85 percent Glera. The remaining 15 percent can be made up of any combination of Verdiso, Bianchetta Trevigiana, Perera, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and/or Pinot Noir (vinified as a white wine). TASTING NOTES: The sip is fresh and fruity and elegant, perfect with aperitifs and appetizers of land and sea. The nose is characterised by aromas of fresh green apple, pear, peach and citrus notes. Crisp acidity, well paced fruit expression and concentration. Very pleasant and easy to drink.

Price: $26.99

Verso Rosso Salento

Tasting Notes: From the Puglia area in Italy, Verso is a full-bodied wine made with a small percent of appassimento (air-dried) grapes. Made from Negroamaro and Primitivo grapes it appears rich and dark in colour, with vibrant spice and red berry flavours. Lighter in body than most Ripasso’s it paired well with grilled pork and mushroom sauce.

Price: $18.49

DeWayne's Pick   (Spain)

COTO DE IMAZ GRAN RESERVA 2015

Tasting Notes: Tempranillo 90 %, Graciano 10 % “Gran reserva” means that it was aged at least five years, with a minimum of 2 years in oak. In addition, gran reserva wines are typically made in only outstanding vintages. The backbone of some of the best Spanish wines, Tempranillo is a red grape variety grown throughout Spain and Portugal. Generally speaking, Tempranillo produces red wines with red fruit and leather aromas, high tannins, moderate to low acidity, and moderate alcohol. In 2020, Tempranillo was the third most-planted grape variety in the world, with the majority of plantings in the Iberian peninsula. El Coto was founded in 1970 and released its first vintage in 1975. It found success relatively quickly and worked to expand facilities and upgrade equipment. Between 1990 and 1997 the winery doubled in size and became the first Spanish winery to be listed on the national stock exchange. The cellar grew to over 70,000 barrels, with an average age of around three years to meet the various aging requirements of Rioja wines. El Coto now exports its wines to more than 50 countries making it one of the most accessible Spanish wines in the world. El Coto is part of the Baron de Ley group that includes the eponymous Baron de Ley winery. El Coto de Rioja has a small range of wines indicative of the region, including entry-level red, rosé and white wines, as well as Reserva and Gran Reserva wines under the name Coto de Imaz. Tempranillo is the most significant variety here, although Graciano, Grenache, and Carignan all appear frequently in the wines. Winemaker Notes Intense cherry color with garnet edge. Mature and elegant, its aromatic richness is changing and subtle, becoming more apparent as the wine breathes. On the nose, powerful aroma, complex, ripe fruit and fine cocoa. Fleshy on the palate, powerful, velvety, with ripe tannins and good acidity with notes of toast and coconut followed by tertiary aromas (leather, wet earth), and red fruit and dried fruit. Round, silky tannins, persistent and complex aftertaste. A good choice to accompany game, red meat and beef. Drink now through 2030.

Price: $39.99

Alison's Pick   (Australia)

Chris Ringland Reservation Shiraz

Tasting Notes: From a legendary Barossa winemaker, this Aussie Shiraz is truly next level. It has an abundant flavour of sweet blackberry, dark chocolate and old fruitcake. Reservation is composed from premium Shiraz batches that have been deliberately held back, to enhance their maturation complexity. This is a classic Northern Barossa Shiraz. Great with BBQ meats, winter stews.

Price: $40.99
