Gobble Gobble! In between wine shipments, we've been sharing family recipes and plans for our Thanksgiving feasts. Fran chimed in with his top wine picks for Turkey Day - Chakana Estate Malbec and Gambellara Soave.
With its light aromas of apple, almond, pear, Gambellara's Soave offers a pleasant, creamy texture in the mouth. This 100% Garganega is lightly flavored with an interesting acidity. The soil's volcanic origin gives a nice presence of mineral saltiness. A great choice for turkey.
Chakana Estate Malbec is deep an intense. This 90pt value has a "deep well of dark currant, kirsch and dried blueberry flavors interwoven with an intense spiciness. Shows a powerful structure, with a pure, fresh and minerally finish filled with loamy and dark chocolate notes." (Wine Spectator) It's begging to be paired with roasted meat or duck.
No matter your wine choice, all of us at Kysela wish our customers a very happy Thanksgiving!
