Mother’s Day weekend is here and unfortunately the weather is cold and dreary. Many moms all over Western New York will be going to brunches and dinners, while others will be home having a lovely (hopefully) meal made for them.
If you fall into the second category or are making a meal for your mom, think about wine. Don’t let the weather ruin your plans. If you were planning on a white wine because May is usually warmer, fear not. We have a perfect wine for warm or cool weather.
The Clos Palet 2012 Vouvray is a wine that mom will appreciate. This wine is medium-bodied and round with a delightful floral aroma. Like the best of vouvrays it also has great fruit notes, particularly apricot, a bit of pineapple and a honeyed quality that sets it apart from other semi-dry whites.
This vouvray is from the Loire Valley in France and is made from 100% chenin blanc. If roast chicken or grilled seafood is on the menu for Mother’s Day, the Clos Palet vouvray will work beautifully. Mom can also enjoy this wine as a simple cocktail as well.
If you want to know more about this wine, come over today and try a sample. Currently, this wine is on sale for $9.99.
