Falling For North America Anyday Case
A Wine Champion this year, the panel considered this north-west American a ‘lovely, friendly riesling’, demonstrating the grape’s compatibility with Washington State. Great value, too, for such intensity of citrus and peach fruit in an off-dry, foodie style.
A full-throttle bottle of California zinfandel is a classic choice for the barbecue. This old-vine version has a vibrant nose of cherry compôte and spiced plums. Soft tannins and a medium body support a sweet core of berry fruit with vanilla spice.
This chocolate and blackberry-flavoured California red has a very loyal following among members who enjoy its generous, rich and full-bodied charms.
A gentle baked apple, mango and vanilla-scented white that is classic to California and can really hit that spot when looking for a rich soft chardonnay hug, with or without food.
Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California, is famed for pinots that retain great elegance thanks to the regular morning fogs. This great-value example has a bright redcurrant and berry perfume, silky tannins and a touch of spice and leather on the finish.
A classic heady viognier from California, with apricot and peach flavours and a soft velvety mouthfeel. This is a lovely fruit-forward glass to enjoy by itself, although it works wonderfully with roast chicken with plenty of aromatic herbs or with roast pork.
