This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

TINI Sauvignon Blanc

As much as we may want to head outside this weekend, much needed rain may keep us in, so we have picked a wine that is perfect for either situation! TINI Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh, but mellow example of what the grape can do: fresh for the moments the sun breaks through the clouds and you run outside, and mellow for cloudier times, sitting by the window while this delightful wine inspires you to plan your first spring picnic (with another bottle of TINI, of course).

Tasting Notes: TINI is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Friuli, Italy and shows a lemon and ripe grapefruit citrus character, light herbal notes and a clean finish. With a softer texture than many classic Sauvignon Blanc wines, TINI is definitely an easy-drinking wine.

Enjoy With:  Seafood dishes, chicken piccata (lemon chicken), spring salads, herb-rubbed goat cheese, or just with a thirsty palate!

Style: A light bodied, fruity white wine.

Terroir / Region: Friuli lies in the mountainous Northern reaches of Italy near the border of Austria and Slovenia, and it’s one of the best regions in the country for growing white grapes. The air in the high mountains stays cool and the elevation gives vineyards great exposure to the sun. The resulting wines are ripe and fruity while having balanced acidity to keep you coming back for more.

Producer: TINI is made by the Caviro group which is responsible for many of Italy’s best-known value-focused wines. It looks for growers who can offer quality grapes to make clean, fruit-driven wines for those who want great wine for an excellent price. 

Availability: TINI Sauvignon Blanc is available in the Italy section of your local LCBO and has you covered for any spring weekend situation. Get out for a glass or stay in and sip!
