With the holiday season just around the corner, many people begin to stress out about which wines they are going to pair with their meals. Everyone has relatives coming from miles away and it’s important that we impress our guests with a palette pleasing wine that is also affordable.
For those who are looking to try some a little advantageous this season, look no further. Chinook Wines from the Yakima Valley produced a Semillon from the 2012 vintage. At about $16 a bottle, this wine is sure to be a show stopper.
With an aromatic nose of sweet fruits and a crisp and refreshing acidity, you will want to make sure this wine is served at just the right temperature. If you have a wine fridge, chill it to approximately 40 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, or, allow the bottle to chill in a sink full of ice for 20 to 30 minutes prior to serving.
This vintage is unoaked, which means the possibilities are endless when it comes to delicious food pairings. It is the perfect wine to pair with pork, poultry, a variety of cheeses and even pumpkin. So whether you are looking for a light and easy drinking wine to serve as an aperitif or something to help settle full and happy stomachs after desert, this is a great wine for the occasion. Cheers!
