I love a nice glass of wine. I mean duh. It feels kind of silly to write that since I would say that’s a true statement for most of us! Typically I change up my preference for red or white along with the weather or what I’m eating and lately I’ve been in full on white wine mode. A nice glass of chilled white wine on a warm spring or summer day is so relaxing! I recently tried Noble Vines 2o14 Chardonnay and 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and to my delight they are a great option!
Both of these whites have made the Best Buy status for several lists due to their great taste and affordability. They retail under $15 at most locations.
The Chardonnay has a great citrus flavor to it with that buttery finish that makes chardonnay so popular. It is perfect for cheese plates al fresco!
Meanwhile, the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. It has hints of melon and lime and is similar to several New Zealand wines due to the location and weather of the vineyard in Monterey, CA. I’m a total “Sauv Blanc” fan and would consider it my white wine of choice. I really thought this was such a great affordable option!
I’m always looking for fun ways to pair my wines and decided nothing feels more summer like than pulled pork BBQ. Sure it would go with way more chic fancy meals as well, but I have Southern roots and this is more of what I’ll be serving up all summer long. Of course with all those fruity aromas, fruit salad or berries are also a nice side dish!
So, keep an eye out for Noble Vines wines when you’re shopping and let us know what you think! And if you have any other fun pairings you’re serving up drop a comment. Cheers lovelies!
