Wine is the key to my heart

This morning I was greeted by the dailycandy weekend guide, they were hocking wine labels that you can adhere to bottles when you give them as gifts – called toast-its. That reminded me that I’ve been wanting to document my favorite wines for future reference.

Lately my BF and I have been digging on Malbecs. They’ve recently been gaining in popularity and are very reasonably priced for a good bottle.

“Malbec is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic. The tannins are typically a bit tight and the earthy, wood-like appeal makes for a fairly rustic, yet versatile wine.”

Faves I’ve tried:

I’ve heard recently that Champagne is more popular than ever…I never realized it went out. I am a HUGE fan of champagne, sparkling wine, prosecco…the list goes on. You really can buy a reasonable bottle of the bubblier stuff for less than you’d spend on a regular white wine. And it always feels like you’re celebrating! One of my besties said she heard on NPR that Champagne is especially good to drink with fatty, fried foods. The bubbles help you digest! That’s enough for me to start guzzling.

Some faves:

I truely die over a good Chardonnay. I recently tried one that was so honey-buttery and I fell head over heels with the entire varietal again! Drinking Chardonnay makes me feel like a grown-up. It also transitions me to my friend’s parents house. This house is the epitome of the “perfect party house”. You always feel welcome, there’s always music, friends, food, drinks. I love going over there, and it was there that I first learned about wine. Shay-Shay (my friend’s mum and my second one) loves drinking and sharing wine. I do believe that her fave is the classic Chard.

More to follow! Enjoy!
