We know that waiting for your monthly delivery to arrive is the hardest part, so in the meantime, check out four of our top picks from the May Wine Club packs.
A magnificent white that will enchant with every sip. Crisply dry with honeydew melon, spice, and floral aromas. Fresh notes of melon and tropical fruit make this a perfect pairing with lemon cheesecake or sushi.
This firmly structured red blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Malbec is everything and more. Upon opening, you'll be delighted with aromas of black plum and cedar followed by luscious notes of milk chocolate and dark berries on the palate. Try it with pulled pork sliders or kimchi chicken burgers.
This stunning white was rated 90 points by wine expert Tony Aspler. It's full of white peach flavour and has a soft spiciness that lingers with every sip. We suggest pairing this gem with honey-mustard chicken wings or pineapple-fried rice with shrimp.
This elegant, dry pinot noir is extremely versatile. On the palate, expect notes of freshly picked strawberries, a lively acidity, and bitter chocolate on the finish. Enjoy on its own or pair it with lasagna or herb-roasted chicken with root vegetables.
