The Top 5 Wines to Drink this Fall

by Lauren Power

As we approach the Fall season, we get excited to switch up what we're drinking! When it comes to the chillier weather, we love bringing out more warm, oak aged, spicy favourites, and wines that pair well with heartier dishes. 

Care to join us? Keep reading to learn which wines you'll want to keep on hand this season!

Chardonnay

When it comes to fuller bodied, oak aged Whites, you can never go wrong with a Chardonnay! Blazon Chardonnay, from Lodi, California, is rich and creamy, with bright citrus flavors and aromas, finishing with baking spice and a slight hint of vanilla.

Pour yourself a glass and enjoy with fall dishes like butternut squash soup or pork tenderloin.

Carmenere

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy medium-bodied Reds! One of our go-to's is Valle Secreto Carmenere - First Edition, from Chile's Cachapoal Valley. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels, this 100% Carmenere wine has notes of dark fruit, rosemary, and pepper. 

Pair this complex Red with your cold weather favourites like beef stew and dark meat turkey!

Valpolicella Ripasso

With flavours of dried fruit, and aromas of cherries and spices, Domini Veneti Valpolicella Ripasso - La Casetta screams fall with how warm and full it is. 

Be sure to pair this with your favourite grilled meats before you close down the BBQ for the season!

Shiraz

Australia is famous for its Shiraz, and Plan B! Wines' ST Shiraz is a medium-full bodied Shiraz and Tempranillo blend that is perfect for the autumn months. With notes of red fruits, black pepper, licorice, vanilla, and oak, this bottle is a staple for the season!

Complement your glass of Shiraz with your favourite lamb or eggplant dishes. Bonus points if you add in fall spices like nutmeg and allspice!

Cabernet Sauvignon

Putting the light bodied bottles away for the season and looking for something bold? Pour yourself a glass of Next Wine Co. Everyday Napa Cabernet Sauvignon! This bottle includes all your classic red fruit notes, with baking spices on the back end that tease black pepper and cocoa. 

This wine is big and pairs best with dishes that can stand up to it! Enjoy with roast beef, portobello mushrooms, or short ribs.
