So it's the time of year where we're teased by mother nature with hints of sunshine and days of grey, and we can't wait until we wake up to one full bright-sun day, the kind where skin feels warm in even the slightest sunbeam. Where colours seem brighter, and the mood is unusually happy for no apparent reason, even just puttering around the house doing chores. Well, we can't guarantee regular days like that for a few more months, but we can guarantee these wines are the equivalent of a sunny day for your mouth.
Here are six wines that feel like a sunny day:
Zanatta Damasco- Muscat, Ortega, Auxerrois, Madeleine Sylvaner
It's from the island, so it's like that first really warm day in March where everything suddenly feels like it will be okay.
It says Every Day right on the label. Who are we to argue? Cheerful & charming.
CC Jentsch The Quest- Chardonnay, Viognier, Gewurz, Schoenburger
Like a fruit cup in a can, but in the best possible way. Your mouth will thank you.
Okanagan Crush Pad Narrative White- Chardonnay, Viognier, Gewurz and a splash of Riesling
Like eating peaches with lime sherbet in your backyard while your apples ripen.
Blasted Church Hatfield's Fuse- 11 different varieties
Like drinking a Bellini at Milestone's on the inner causeway in the summer, only better, because it's wine. Put the bottle in the freezer for awhile and it will get a little slushy too.
Volcanic Hills Magma White- 49% Gewürztraminer, 23% Pinot Gris, 23% Chardonnay, and 5% Viognier.
Why send yourself flowers when you can have this wine? Very pretty and aromatic, delightful from start to finish. Come to think of it, flowers may last longer...
