Start your Holiday Wine timely

Now is a good time to start your Holiday wine. We all know that as your wine matures, it considerably improves in taste and flavor. The wine becomes a lot smoother and starts revealing its bouquet. From our end, we are prepared and well stocked. Do yourself a favor and do not postpone! You are worth it.

Here are a few of our suggestions:

Four week options from Wine Kitz’ Wine Art, European Select and Cheeky Monkey.

Five week options from Wine Kitz’ Traditional Vintage and Cellar Craft Sterling

As a dessert wine, consider this year to have a Port, Chocolate Port, red or white Ice Wine, a dry or Cream Sherry or our unique, Nelson-only award-winning recipe Sherry PX style.

Nelson Art Walk 2014

We are excited about participating in Nelson Art Walk again this year, July 4 – Sept 4. Our store is one of the venues hosting two artists:

Carol Hutchinson and Bryn Stevenson.

Carol is displaying pottery of her “Sweet Mud Collection” and Bryn displays paintings of “Local mountains he has hiked himself”.

 ‘Blends that rock’!

Three Dog White: a dry white from Spain featuring the Torrontes-Chardonnay-Viognier blend. Red Zeppelin: a red blend from Italy; the Nebbiolo-Barbera. Each of the grapes contribute complementary characteristics in their blends. Both white and red produce a very pleasurable wine and do fine as a dining wine as well as a wine to sip away on your deck. Both blends come as a 10 L, 4 weeks kit, complete with plastic labels.

Profiles: 

Torrontes-Chardonnay-Viognier: 12%, Light-Medium bodied, Un-oaked. Can be made dry or off-dry to meet your preference. The traditional and Mediterranean character of Spain.

This dry white opens with a vibrant tropical fruit and floral bouquet, and will quickly have you grooving to the tune of lush peach and apricot with hints of citrus. Refreshing acidic, the long fruity finish will have you up on your feet chanting for more.

Nebbiolo-Barbera: 13%, Full bodied, Oaked, Dry. Undisputable Italian.

This headliner red rocks ripe red berry flavors and tart cherry tang, balancing it out with harmonious earthy floral notes and fresh acidity. Moderate tannins back it all up. The juicy cherry aroma is highlighted with the subtle scent of tar and roses. The wine is worthy, you will like this.
