By Josh Downs, Beer and Wine Manager
It's been a busy week preparing for Thanksgiving here at City Market, so I'll just use this week's blog to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! We still have Holiday Wine 6 Packs available in the Beer and Wine Department, so stop by while you're doing your Thanksgiving shopping and pick one up to make your holiday wine and food pairings a breeze. We hope you all have a wonderful holiday celebrating with family and friends, and I promise we'll be back next week with a normal blog post. Prost!
November Wine Picks for Under $10
The holiday season is approaching fast, so this month we are featuring two fantastic wines at great savings so you don’t have to break the budget on a good wine for Thanksgiving dinner or as a gift. Both wines featured this month are from the Plantagenet Vineyard in Mount Barker, Western Australia. Plantagenet is one of the most trusted wine brands in Australia and there is good reason for it.
Hazard Hill Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a lush and flavorful white. Notes of guava and citrus on the nose lead to citrus zest, apple, and gooseberry in the body. The finish is long and refreshing, with a good minerality. Drink this alongside salads, shellfish, and poultry. Hazard Hill Shiraz is dark and rich with notes of cherry, blackberry, and plum. This savory wine is complimented by a peppery finish that lasts. Enjoy a glass of this alongside red meats, stews, and other rich fall dishes.
