California! California produces the best wines in America! Why is that?! ….Climate. Cooler climate tends to have smaller grapes that have a more tart and acidic flavour while warmer climates encourage grapes to grow larger which leads to more juicy ripeness. 80% of wine made in USA is from California. Most famous for it’s bodacious, fruit forward wines that focus on French Varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Wine-type grapes are grown in 46 of California’s 58 counties, covering 513,000 acres in 2004.
Try our California Reserve Merlot. This dry, medium body, medium oak merlot has notes of Chocolate, black cherry and vanilla spice. With a soft finish these flavours will dance on your tongue, leaving you wanting more! Not a red wine lover!? That’s okay we have a white wine too.
California Sauvignon Blanc: Medium Body, dry crispy white wine, soft lime and gooseberry with fresh tropical fruit. This classing white wine pairs well with soft cheese’s and fish or just simply sit and enjoy.
