Game Of Thrones Chardonnay  USA

Tasting Notes: This robust Californian white wine is a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Riesling from the Central Coast region. The wine underwent a partial malolactic and barrel fermentation. Aromas of toasty oak and golden apples. Pair with roast chicken and family entanglements. As the back label reads for this marketing-driven wine branded with the HBO series "Game of Thrones": From the arid climate of Dorne to the lush vineyards of The Reach, the topography of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is as diverse as the wine we produce. Against the backdrop of the ever evolving struggle for the Iron Throne and amidst the howling winds of winter, nobles raise their glasses and toast to luck in the wars to come. This was priced at $30.99 but with an amazing discount from the company representing it here in Alberta we can offer it at $15.99. Wow!

Price: $$15.99

Gran Emotivo Rosso  Italy

Tasting Notes: This is an everyday kind of wine with a blend of merlot and corvina grapes. Flavours of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins with pleasant notes of spices and vanilla. Rich and bold palate with very ripe, red fruit flavours. A solid structure and beautiful balance between soft tannins and lifted acidity. This is a great wine for roasts, red meats and hard cheeses. This wine will improve over the next four years with further bottle ageing.

Price: $21.99

Quevedo Rose Port  Portugal

Tasting Notes: To make this delicious rose port grapes are crushed, and within a few hours, the juice is decanted to limit contact with the skin to avoid too much color extraction; it fermented at a cold temperature for 10 days. The grapes used are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão. Quevedo's pink port shows a modest but fresh - floral nose. On the palate, spicy, fresh , integrated notes and round finish. A pleasure to drink.

Price: $24.99

Three Finger Jack OV Zinfandel  USA

Tasting Notes: A great BBQ wine from the Lodi area of California. This is a luscious full-bodied red wine that combines ripe berry notes and pronounced jammy flavours. On the palate there’s notes of cherry jam mixed with dark plum and fig. On the nose there’s dark berries with hints of chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Ripe tannins add the necessary structure for pairing with food such as BBQ-marinated pork ribs, beef and vegetable skewers or T bone steaks. It would be good to chill this wine a little before serving.

Price: $24.99

Giusti Rosalia Prosecco D.O.C.  Italy

Tasting Notes: This sparkling shows appropriately evanescent, with fine and lingering perlage. The colour is pale straw yellow with greenish glints. The nose is intense, fruity, with hints of Golden apple and lemon; prevailing floral notes of wisteria and acacia. Flavours are fresh, well structured, pleasant and harmonious on the palate. Excellent both as an aperitif and throughout the meal; always suitable for important occasions. I enjoyed this with east coast oysters.

Price: $16.99
