From: Maule Valley, Chile
Varietals: 80% Pais, 20% Pedro Ximenez
Tasting Notes: This wine is so vibrant and delicious, we can't get enough of it! In the glass, it looks like a light red wine, but it's actually a blend of Pais and Pedro Ximenez... which means that we should think of this as its own thing in terms of category.
As far as taste goes, think of this as a ridiculously affordable alternative to Piemonte rosados. In the glass, you'll find bright notes of raspberry, cherry, and rose petals that lead into underlying hints of dried herbs, fennel seeds, oregano, and thyme. This fruit-driven, easy-drinking wine has fresh acid and low tannin and is the perfect transitional wine for this time of year.
Pairing: This wine is another versatile pick that can be served as an aperitif, among appetizers, next to mushroom risotto, alongside Mediterranean fare, taco take-out, Chinese take-out, and next to dishes that play with well with zesty herb elements like this one: Pad Kaprow Gai (Thai Basil Chicken) originally by Kris Yenbamroong, and adapted by Alexa Weibel.
