Hand Selected Wines for May
We’re welcoming in spring with open arms here at WineCollective. Our May wine subscription packages are out across Canada and we want to share all the great bottles your fellow WineCollective members are drinking. With the flowers blooming, we’re finally ready to enjoy time on the deck or patio. In short, it’s time to enjoy the fresh air with a nice glass of wine. This month we featured 11 wines from around the world, with a mix of blends, white, and reds. All of these pair well with good company. Which we like to think all wine should.
Some Features to Note:
- Two of the wines were bottled in 2014, however, they can both rest in the cellar for another 5-6 years. In addition to that, both 2014 wines are from Spain.
- Also noteworthy in our Spanish wines: in Spain, the Viura varietal is referred to as ‘Macabeo’.
- Chardonnay is featured in two bottles – both in a blend and on its own. Now, not everyone claims to be a fan of Chardonnay. As a result, we think it’s important to mention the value in trying different styles!
