Speaking of Wine...
 
 
Dear Jamie,
 
Well we have reached the unofficial end of Summer. We hope you had a great one. Now it's time to think about your winter wine. If you can believe it, we are already scheduling bottling appointments into November for the 6-8 week kits. The earlier you can start your wine, the longer it has to age and improve for the holidays.

NEW Selection International Wines...At Sale Prices Too! 
 
Winexpert & JUST FINE WINE are pleased to announce two  exciting new varieties to be added to the Winexpert Selection International line up:

chilean sauvignon blancaustralian grenacheAustralian Grenache / Syrah / Mourvèdre
The blending of these three grapes is a classic, originating in the South of France where Côtes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape concentrate on these varieties. The three grapes together make for a blend of length, power, and fruitiness and above all, balanced intensity of flavour.
 
Chilean Sauvignon Blanc
A gorgeous nose of honeydew, peach and gooseberry is followed by a silky palate with white peach and mineral flavors and a long finish. Bright, crisp and inviting at three months it's refreshingly complex and tropical, and will develop notes of basil and mint with age.
 
 
Both of these fantastic new varieties are now available for purchase and are $10 off during the month of September!
 
Although not on sale, we are also pleased to announce the availability of two new Winexpert World Vineyard varieties:

South African Chenin Blanc
Chenin Blanc is a late ripening grape, which brings intense flavour development. Unusual for a grape that hangs so long, it retains crisp acidity, underpinning bright flavours of green apple, tropical fruit and melons, with a distinctly floral nose and a juicy, quenching finish.

Italian Barolo
Winexpert World Vineyards Barolo has rich, spicy fruit and delivers the true character of the grape and land. Typical flavors are cherries, violets, black licorice, truffles and it finishes with rich, chewy, deep and long-lasting flavour.
