Remember- Limited means Limited…

February 9, 2012

We’re half way through this year’s Limited Edition Program and we’re selling out of the wines faster than any year past. If you’re lucky you may be able to find a ‘stray’ Washington Meritage or South African Sauvignon Blanc from January at one of our locations.

February’s California Petite Sirah/Zinfandel has only been in stock for 8 days and we have less than 12 kits remaining in the Wine Sense chain that have not been reserved/purchased- so if you like a ‘blockbuster’ red you’ll want to call your favourite Wine Sense location asap and ask them to hold one for you.

The good news is that there is still time to reserve March’s German Traminer Spatlese or Aprils Spanish Matador Trio Red.

The German Traminer Spatlese is a gently golden-coloured wine, unmistakable in its heady, aromatic intensity, with a pungent fragrance of lychee, tropical fruit and rose petals. Its flavours are ample, lusciously fruity and spicy. It’s great with spicy dishes, desserts or on its own. This is truly a unique wine- if you were a fan of some of the past Limited Edition styles like the Mosel Valley Gewurztraminer or Pacific Quarter you’ll love the Traminer Spatlese!

The Spanish Matador Trio Red features three grapes: Tempranillo are deep blue-black berries, high in colour and extract, with delicate aromas. Cabernet Sauvignon’s small berries yield high tannins and intense structure, while Monastrell adds grip, earthiness and ripe red fruit. The wine is lush, tannic and complex, with intense black fruit flavours of black cherry, raspberry, black currant and notes of plums and tobacco. It’s graceful with oak adding layers of vanilla, cedar and rich coffee nuances. This unique red wine pairs well with the usual foods that you would expect a red wine to pair with, as well as lighter foods and ‘tapas’ dishes like a basic white bean salad. 

So call your favourite Wine Sense location and reserve your Limited Edition wine before it’s too late!
