2015 Bellarine Bay Fiano $10.99
Head Down Under for an Aussie take on southern Italy’s famous Fiano. From talented winemaker, Toby Wanklyn, this Fiano is a must-try for any fan of lighter Italian whites, like Pinot Grigio. Crafted from premium vineyards in southern New South Wales, it brims with delicate green apple and melon aromas and flavors, with a crisp, refreshing texture and underlying honeyed, nutty notes. Sip this Italian-style, with light pastas or white pizza.
2014 Giesta Dão Red Blend $10.99
Once Portugal’s most famous red, Dão is now softer, fruitier and very much back in fashion. Giesta is crafted from Portugal’s signature grape, Touriga Nacional, along with two other Portuguese stars: Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo in Spain) and spicy Jaen. Look for flavors of black plum, raspberry and cherry. Its rich, dark-fruit and subtle spice flavors will really shine with smoked sausage, pork chops or hearty stews.
