End of Summer Wine Celebration

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy whites, creamy reds and sparklings. To celebrate the end of a fantastic summer, we present a few of our favorites value wines!

ChardonnayEl Carajo Calina Chardonnay

Calina Chardonnay is a value white year round with notes of pineapple, apricot  and butter. This Chilean wine transcends the region and produces quality that rivals any Californian or French wine at its price point.

 

AlbariñoEl Carajo Bernon Albariño

Light, crisp, and refreshing; Bernon Albariño is a perfect example of a summer white with tropical noted Albariño and of a summer white. With ample fruit and clean acid this wine is just as good at the poolside as at the dinner table.

 

White BlendEl Carajo Pine Ridge

Pine Ridge Chenin-Viognier is a gorgeous white with weight and acid without oak. The chenin adds weight and apricot notes while the viognier adds acidity, notes of flowers and melon. A truly magnificent little white blend.

 

GarnachaEl Carajo Principe de Viana Garnacha

Principe de Viana Garnacha is a great chillable summer red. Red fruit and touches of oak make this an easy go to year round. Its light body is perfect for hot weather as its tannins won’t dry out your mouth like inkier wines.

 

Red blendEl Carajo Abstract by Orin Swift

Orin Swift’s Abstract red blend is creamy, chocolatey, and finishes cleanly. The 2013 is the best one I’ve tasted and makes a perfect summer wine for a cab lover since it has the flavors of big cab but a lighter body. Serve with a slight chill to get the best experience in the heat.

 

Sparkling BrutEl Carajo Le Cardinale

Le Cardinale blanc de blancs is an easy drinking sparking with creamy bubbles, notes of white fruits and hints of brioche. There is nothing like a nice little bottle of bubby by the pool side, at the brunch table, or for a friends barbeque!

 

Rosé ChampagneEl Carajo Marie Stuart Rose Champagne

While sparkling is nice, champagne is, well, champagne. Marie Stuart Brut Rosé Champagne has red fruits notes of raspberry and strawberry with champagne’s mouthwatering acidity, brioche notes and very fine bubbles. No better way to celebrate the end of the summer!

These are our summer picks, don’t forget to grab them now as these extra special prices are going to disappear in October! As always, we hope you enjoy these wines as much as we do.
