Grab a glass and get ready to pop corks on some affordable and unique bottles, thanks to our friends at H-E-B! In this weekend’s NEW episode of Goodtaste, we share three big and bold, must-try bottles.
First off, the Bread and Butter Chardonnay. This chardonnay is a classic California wine. It is aged in French and American oak, which means you will taste rich notes of vanilla, almonds and pears with an almost creamy finish. This wine is perfect for roasted chicken, a creamy pasta, or bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp! $15
Next, one of everyone’s favorite varietals: pinot noir. This is the Boen Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir from the highlands of central California. Because of the warmer climate there, you’re going to get a darker fruit flavor. Think juicy cherries, plums, and even blueberries, plus some spice. This bottle is perfect for any upcoming holiday parties. $28
OK, die-hard cabernet fans, it’s time to break out of the box. Single red varietals are trending big right now like this Donati Family Vineyard Cabernet Franc. Cab francs are usually used for blending, but are becoming popular drinking wines all by themselves. Cab francs are lighter bodied than cabernets and have fewer tannins. You’ll taste purple grapes, plums, blackberries, and even dark chocolate. This wine is also easy on the wallet and very food-friendly – it pairs beautifully with all kinds of meat. $20
As always, you can find these wines and more at your local H-E-B. Bonus: When you buy six or more bottles, you’ll get 10% off your whole wine purchase!
