Tonight, we’re presenting wines with an international flair. These wines are coming from all over the world. You don’t want to miss this weekend’s wine tasting!

Mulderbosch 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rose – South Africa
“First released in 1999, Mulderbosch Rosé was one of the very first of its kind from South Africa. At a time when most Rosés where a byproduct of red wine fermentation, Mulderbosch launched a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé issuing from specially farmed vineyards specifically to produce Rosé fruit. On arrival at the cellar, these early picked, specially selected grapes where vinified in the same manner in which an aromatic white wine would be, with the aim of producing a fresh, aromatic style of Rosé.” – Mulderbosch Vineyards

Domaine du Haut Bourg 2015 Dry Muscadet – France
“Several important critics have rated this Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu wine highly: Wine Enthusiast gave the 2013 vintage a score of 90.  Ranked second for number of awards won among wines from this region: the International Wine Challenge awarded the 2013 Gold and the Concours General Agricole Paris awarded the 2005 vintage Gold.” – Domaine du Haut Bourg

Veglio 2014 Dolcetto D’Alba – Italy
“The grapes for this particular wine are harvested on land treated only with natural fertilizers, producd with extreme care in hygiene and purity, and stored in meticulously cleaned steel barrels.  Veglio Dolcetto d’Alba  is a charming dry red that is also soft and fruity.  Naturally low tannins and histamines. Best while young, the pleasant notes of plum, raspberry, and strawberry will be welcoming to the palate. Pairs well with pizza, pasta, lasagna, and everyday meals.” – Divinio Wholesalers

Root:1 2014 Carmenere – Chile
“Deep red in color with gentle tannins and rich flavors of plum, blackberry and spice. Root: 1 Carmenere pairs well with pasta dishes, vegetable soup, spicy entrees, and grilled meats. Its unique versatility is a perfect match for ingredients such as garlic, bell peppers, fresh herbs, and eggplant.” – Root:1 Wines
