This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

Joseph Cattin Riesling 2020

It’s time for a take-out night. Winter’s sudden arrival lets us all off the hook for making the next trip to the grocery store – especially if you have not managed to get your winter tires on yet. But what to pick, and which wine to go with it? Our favourite winery from Alsace, France has the pairing covered. Joseph Cattin Riesling 2020 is our go-to take-out wine and an amazing value – you will see why as soon as you try it.

Tasting Notes: 100% Riesling, this wine carries a balance of citrus and orchard fruit flavours like lemon, green apple and peach, with perfect acidity to make it ultimately food friendly and refreshing.

Enjoy With: Plenty of take-out options including fish’n’chips, pad thai, fried chicken or honey garlic chicken wings, sausage and potato perogies, a curry dish, or a new pairing you create! It’s incredibly versatile.

Style: A dry, light-bodied, refreshing white wine.

Terroir/Region: The residents of Alsace, France fully embrace winter when it arrives. Snow covers the picturesque streets and strings of lights are hung in every town and village. Craft markets and holiday festivals pop up between the timber framed houses and the townspeople head out into the streets. Of course, those who don’t like the snow as much head into the spa! Feel like planning a trip?

Producer: If you decide to visit, the Cattin estate is more than accommodating to those who stop by. A rooftop restaurant offers views of the vineyards, forests, mountains, and even the alps in the distance. A cellar visit allows you to discover the full range of Cattin’s wines while the staff is happy to tour you through the vineyards by foot, bicycle or bus. Maybe they switch to skis in the winter?
