Wine Day 2021: Five best wines for beginners
Cloudy Bay – Sauvignon Blanc: Immediately expressive in the glass, with notes of bright, ripe citrus, makrut lime, passionfruit and white peach. The palate is vibrant and mouthwatering, with concentrated, juicy tropical notes melding with zesty citrus, stone fruits and subtle notes of orchard blossom. This wine is delicious on its own or can be enjoyed with fresh and simply prepared seafood or vibrant in-season vegetables.
Termes: Termes could be referred as the entry door to discover Bodega Numanthia. This wine, released 2 years after harvest, is a vibrant expression of Tinta de Toro. Fresh red and black fruits are predominant and goes harmoniously along with sweet spices. Termes is the perfect wine to enjoy a moment of conviviality.
Cloudy Bay Chardonnay: It is an equal representation of the region’s two soil types, stony and clay, with ripe stone fruit characteristics coming from the former and the latter imbuing citrus-focused elegance. When young, this wine is vibrant and intense and in time takes on more savoury aspects, melding the fruit core with notes of grilled nuts and brioche, as well as spice. Cloudy Bay Chardonnay can be cellared for up to 10-15 years
Chandon Rose (Sparking Wine): Chandon India, launched in 2013 in the Nashik region of India produces world-class, premium quality sparkling wine in two variants – Brut and Rosé.
Terrazas Reserva Malbec: Terrazas Reserva Malbec is a blend of the emblematic terroirs of the Estate and reflects Terrazas’s signature winemaking style. The blend of so many expressive Malbec components brings layers to the aromas and mouth feel, giving a complex and elegant wine.
