I’ve been behind on posting about wine, which is why I’m doubling up! LOL
This wine, from South Africa, is insanely good. What makes it good is its unique taste–you’ll either love it or hate it. It has notes of chocolate and coffee (although I hate saying “it has notes of….” for any wine, it’s true in this case). Unfortunately I could not find a URL at the vineyard’s website (Stellenbosch Vineyards) and the “wine of origin” is Western Cape. Maybe you’ll have more luck than I!
I apologize for the blurry photo. I was at a wine tasting where this wine was featured, and I bought it, even though at the time I wasn’t as turned onto it as everyone else was. It really is a nice-tasting wine. This wine is from Chile and you can read about it here.
This is an Argentinian wine from Terrazas de los Andes. You can read about this wine here. It is a wonderful medium-bodied red wine, and the best thing is that it’s not very expensive!
Another great medium-bodied red wine from South Africa. Truly a light version of Pinot Noir! I couldn’t find their website, but the Six Hats twitter feed can be found here.
I’m not a huge Chianti fan, but I was pleasantly surprised by this wine. I tend to like Pinot Noirs, and this Chianti was reminiscent of that taste, though not as “heavy” as a Pinot Noir. You can learn more about the winery here.
I just had this wine again and it is absolutely wonderful. Try it if you can!
An absolutely gorgeous red from Millbrook Vineyards & Winery. You can read more about this wine here. It’s a mixture of merlot and cabernet savignon.
