This is news that a lot of you have been waiting for. Just Fine Wine and Winexpert are extremely happy to announce that the most loved and most requested limited release wine, Selection Pacific Quartet, is back!
Pacific Quartet is a splendid fusion of grapes from around the Pacific Rim: Muscat from Australia; Chenin Blanc from California; Gewürztraminer from Washington; and Viognier from Chile. Blended to off-dry perfection, the four grapes in this wine create a show-stopping combination with brilliant flavours of apple, stone fruit, lychee, rose petals and orange peel. Full-bodied yet supple, this slightly sweet wine with balanced acidity pairs perfectly with spicy and savory dishes.
Selection Pacific Quartet is planned as a longer-term limited release, with inventory expected to be available for several months, dependent on demand; however, once it’s gone, it’s gone. This wine is available now at Just Fine Wine – only while supplies last! So start yours today.
Ready in only 6-8 weeks and producing 23L (approximately thirty 750ml bottles) of finished wine, SELECTION Pacific Quartet is priced at $185 On-Premise or $130 Kit-Only.
The Pacific Rim, encompassed by North & South America on one side and Australia & Asia on the other, has micro-climates that match those from all over the world. From the blazing sunshine to the crisp mountain air and soils ranging from sandy loam, stony red clay, nearly pure limestone and everything in between. The range and variety provide perfect terroir for almost any grape, and Winexpert has searched out the best for this blend, reaching all the way from one side of the Pacific to the other.
The four grapes showcase a host of brilliant flavours of bright fruit, excellent structure and a long finish. Viognier from Chile gives apricots, blossoms and stone fruit. Chenin Blanc from California gives a wonderful melony-honeyed aroma with hints of apple. Gewürztraminer from Washington contributes lychee, rose petals and floral notes, and Muscat from Australia gives wonderful grapey notes with dried fruit and hints of orange peel.
