End Of Summer Wines

As the temperatures start to cool off a little bit our wine deals are still smoking hot. It may still be too hot to jump back into some red varietals, but these three tasty white wines are perfect to enjoy in the Bakersfield heat. If you are trying to find the perfect refreshment while you wait out the heatwave, give this list a try.

Conundrum White 2016 $17.98

This California white blend provides everything you could ask for on a hot Bakersfield summers day. Bright, crisp and refreshing, you get a whole liter at the price of $17.98. Its the perfect deal to beat the heat. Conundrum White blend possesses “A soft gentle hue… a fresh, delicate nose with a trace of the tropical scents of flower blossoms mingling with orange, honeysuckle, and a touch of lemon. Entry on the palate is vibrant, with flavors of mandarin orange and a lively acidity that gives this wine a serious dimension. The combination of tropical notes alongside citrus is emblematic of white grapes grown in cooler regions of California and provides a singular character. Bright acidity carries through to the long finish.” -Wine Maker’s notes.

Chateau Bonnet Bordeaux $13.99

Now, if you’re trying to beat the heat with a delightful savvy wine without breaking the bank. May I introduce you to this deliciously crafted dry white Bordeaux from Andre Lurton. The Lurton family cared for distinguished vineyards in Chateau Bonnet for over a century. Bringing tradition, and modern techniques together to create this beautiful wine out of the classic Bordeaux varieties. “Brilliant clear pale yellow color with green highlights. Starts out powerful on the nose, going on to reveal delicate aromas of white fruit, pear and citrus. The palate begins with beautifully straightforward notes, becoming round and full-bodied mid-palate. Pleasantly fresh on the finish, contributing a lovely long aftertaste. A well-balanced wine with delicious aromas of white fruit following through to the palate.” – Winemakers Notes. Its a wonderful blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle. This 2019 Bonnet Blanc is particularly enjoyable with oysters, crab or marinated mussels.

Bocelli Prosecco $14.91

This Prosecco will make your taste buds sing. The Bocelli family has made classic wines for 180 years on their beautiful Tuscan farm. Their prosecco is a wonderful choice in regard to quality and price. “Made from the Prosecco grape that is indigenous to the Veneto region, this sparkling wine has subtle flower and fruit aromas that make the palate deliciously light and playful. Unlike many Champagnes, it is not harsh–rather, it tickles the throat with a peachy softness, and is flecked with minerality that remains simple in the best of ways. Perfect perlage make it the ideal choice for any occasion.” -Winemakers Notes. Personally, this is one of my favorite proseccos. Typically, it is my go to recommendation when someone in store asks for a delightful sparkling wine for a special event or just an everyday indulgence. It has taken the prize of being on our top 100 list more than once. And for the price of $14.91, it over delivers.
