Intrepid wine fans are always on the look out for new wines. Never fear! Wine Manager Ralph Cortez (my “Wine Guy”) at the H-E-B Plus! on Blanco & 1604 has his picks that jive for July!
Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Blancs
Handcrafted in Sonoma, made in the “French” style from 100% Chardonnay grapes. You’ll taste the green apple and citrus flavors! Great with summer seafood like shrimp, clam, crab — you name it!
This old vine blend from Argentina might be my new favorite find. It includes 50% Bonarda grape, which is said to help humans live longer! Very smooth and great all by itself.
MontGras Solar Carmenère
A Chilean red made from 100% Carmenère grapes. Bright with nice acidity; try pairing with any gamey meats (lamb, venison, etc.).
