10 Wines We’re Loving For Fall

10 Wines We’re Loving For Fall

The temperatures are dropping, we’re stoking the fireplaces and putting on those fuzzy socks – it’s time for a glass of wine! Lately here at GiftTree, we’ve been thinking about the types of red and white wines that have that perfectly autumnal feel. With that in mind, here are our top 10 fall wines!   10 Wines We’re Loving This Fall   Elk Cove Pinot Gris Giving off sweet and light aromas of citrus blossom and grapefruit, this creamy and lush wine offers lovely apple and pear flavors, while showing crispness on the palette. This white wine is medium-bodied and balanced. So it is perfect as an aperitif, or served with salmon, main-course salads, or Thai and Asian influenced dishes.   Loimer Lois Grüner Veltliner Grüner is perhaps lesser known in the United States than it is in Europe. But don’t let the unfamiliar words deter you – an Austrian wine, Grüner Veltliner is fruity, flinty and perfect for sipping in your favorite sweater. If you’re looking for a little taste of familiarized Chenin Blanc, try Pine Ridge, a wonderful California white. GiftTree’s Sommelier serves it with her Thanksgiving turkey.   Decoy Zinfandel From its lovely dark violet color to its luscious fruit aromas, this wine captures the alluring essence of Sonoma County Zinfandel. On the palate, layers of wild blueberry, blackberry and cassis are underscored by an elegant structure that includes supple, refined tannins, balanced acidity and just a hint of juicy sweetness and toasty oak.   Twomey Russian River Pinot Noir Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a rich, multi-faceted wine with great fruit and spice...
