Judy’s Fall Picks

Oyster Bay Chardonnay

Oyster Bay Chardonnay truly captures the character of Marlborough with pure, incisive, ripe fruit flavours. A combination of barrel and tank fermentation and the stirring of yeast lees achieves maximum softness, integration and texture. This wine has concentrated aromas and flavours of ripe citrus and stone fruit balanced with subtle oak, and a creamy texture to finish. A sublime expression of fruit purity from Marlborough’s unique cool climate and soil.

Oyster Bay Chardonnay pairs perfectly with a caesar salad, oven roasted turkey, or seafood pasta.

Keith’s Red Amber Ale

Keith’s Red Amber Ale has sweet aromas, with notes of spice, herb, and fruit. It is an off dry, medium body ale that is dark amber in color with rich red overtones. This beer pairs perfectly with burgers, nuts, or pizza.

The holidays are a time to enjoy good food, and of course good beer. With a traditional roasted turkey, amber ales are perfect pairings. The browning during the brewing process is similar to the caramelizing that takes place in the oven while the turkey is roasting.

Tito’s Handmade Vodka

Tito’s Handmade Vodka is made in Austin, Texas. A pure corn spirit, it is distilled six times in a pot still. This vodka offers aromas of tropical fruit and citrus; the palate is medium bodied and smooth with flavours of guava, passion fruit, and citrus followed by a soft finish.

Try mixing Tito’s Handmade Vodka in a “Harvey Wallbanger” cocktail. A Harvey Wallbanger is a fun and simple drink that was created in the 1950’s that became a smash hit in the 1970’s and has seen a recent revival.
