February Staff Picks!

Our staff at Everything Wine and More often get asked the question “What’s your favourite wine?” and let me tell you, it’s not often easy to answer! Each one of us have very different palates and we all enjoy different wines. I myself enjoy off-dry Rieslings and Merlot, while some of my co-workers have vastly different opinions. So we decided to make it easier for our beloved customers! We have now added a STAFF PICKS section to our store which is filled with some of our personal favorites!

Caitlin’s Pick
Falernia Carmenere Reserva

This is one of my favorite reds! This beautiful and satisfying red is deep ruby in colour.  The nose presents with dark cherry, blackberry and plum notes. It does not at all disappoint on the palate, with hints of dark chocolate, cherry, licorice, spice and everything nice! This wine has a great finish with velvety smooth tannins. This full bodied red would go amazing with a nice plate of juicy prime rib!

Graham’s Pick
Nugan Estate Alfredo Dried Grape Shiraz

This Australian Shiraz goes through a very unique process to make it as amazing as it is! The Shiraz grapes are harvested and dried on racks to enhance and intensify the amazing flavours of the grape giving it a powerful and concentrated taste that you won’t soon forget! This full bodied red shows dark fruit and herbaceous notes on the nose followed by intense spice, vanilla, black currant, dark cherry and finishes with smooth tannins. To kick it off, it is rated 92 points by Stephen Tanzer!

Cheata’s Pick
Tinto Negro Mendoza Malbec

Assistant Manager Cheata has chosen this wine as her pick, and it’s a great one! This wine is everything you should expect from a good Malbec, exhibiting rich flavours such as espresso, melted chocolate, blueberry, and blackberry. It is full bodied with just a bit of oak aging to really balance it out. Try it now with goat cheese and beef brisket.

Matt’s Pick
The Industrialist Conviction Sovereign Opal
British Columbia

This is a new one that we just brought back in.  VQA from BC that is an amazing wine for all of you Moscato and Riesling lovers out there! This wine is incredibly fruit forward with flavours such as peach, apple, and pear. It is light and fruity which is pleasing to virtually anyone who likes an easy drinking white to just sit and share with friends! I guarantee you will not be disappointed by Matt’s choice, so pick up a bottle today!

Sam’s Pick
Batasiolo Moscato D’Asti

Sam loves her sweet wines! She chose this Italian Moscato for her staff pick and I promise you it is amazing! Really rich in fruit flavours, this wine exhibits notes of peach, apricot, orange blossoms and rose petals. With a bit of bubble, it is crisp, refreshing, and sweet! It’s perfect for just sitting and drinking on a warm day, or with a yummy dessert such as a cream stuffed pastry!
