Debbie’s Thanksgiving Picks
Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay
Beringer Private Reserve is a classic Napa Chardonnay, dry, full bodied, and richly flavored. This wine is aged in new French American oak and undergoes malolatic fermentation which contributes to the buttery, toasted almond and vanilla bean notes. Aromas of stone fruit, lemon citrus follow through on the palate. This full textured wine is balanced with minerality and lively acidity.
Chardonnay pairs well with dishes that complement its rich full flavors. The Homemade Pumpkin Gnocchi and Roast Turkey with Sage Stuffing from our recipe section will be a beautiful complement to this Californian wine.
With a Wine Spectator score of 92pts, the Beringer Chardonnay could be the highlight of your Thanksgiving dinner.
Pierre Sparr Reserve Pinot Gris
Pierre Sparr Reserve Pinot Gris is produced in the cooler region of Alsace, France. The style tends to be full bodied and rich with spicy notes. It is medium dry with refreshing acidity showing fruity and floral notes on the palate. The off dry sweetness of this wine will pair well with the sweet candied flavours of the ham.
