Wine of the Weekend

Thr3 Monkeys White 2015, Hungary

It’s a funny thing. There is a large cohort of wine drinkers who really like off-dry white wines but won’t talk about it. People will talk about liking dry wines, but when it really comes down to it, a well-balanced fresh, fruity wine with a hint of sweetness is what a lot of folks want. This weekend, embrace your inner off-dry wine-loving self and celebrate with some Thr3 Monkeys.


Tasting Notes: This white blend is pale lemon in colour. You’ll find pleasant, fresh, fruity lemon-lime, tropical fruit and peach aromas on the nose with hints of floral honey. The palate is breezy, bright and medium-bodied with soft acidity and a touch of well-balanced peachy sweetness that makes this wine very easy to drink. Serve well-chilled.

Enjoy With: Spicy pan-Asian dishes, fish tacos, light salads with fruit, or all by itself.

Style: Off-dry and fruity white wine.

Terroir/Region: The wine growing regions of Hungary are at about the same latitude as some of France’s most famous wine appellations, including the Loire Valley and Alsace. The country has 22 wine regions and is well known for growing a wide variety of cool-climate white grapes, including varieties like Riesling and Gewurztraminer which go into this blend.

Producer: The Thr3 Monkeys brand was developed by the Enjoy Wine and Spirits company as a fun, easy to understand and cheeky wine brand from Hungary which would appeal to international export markets. The monkeys represent a wine that is unpretentious, fun and easy to enjoy.

Availability: Thr3 Monkeys 2015 is available year round in the Hungarian or Eastern European section at the LCBO.
