Four bottles to chase away the routine

After two months of summer, the new school year has arrived. If it is impossible to escape the classic metro-work-sleep, you can jazz up your weekend with these four bottles.

Not Wise Orange Unfiltered | SAQ Code: 15012418 | $19.75

SAQ

Wine bottled in Quebec is trying to change its image. To achieve this, the Arterra company called on Quebec artists to illustrate its new range of wine called Pas sages. The first label was created by Jennifer Miville. The artist from Bas-du-Fleuve has put his work on orange wine. Made from Vidal and Chardonnay, the two grape varieties were fermented with the skins to provide color, flavors and structure. And it is successful! Subtly aromatic with aromas of cooked apples and flowers, the whole has enough volume and texture to accompany grilled meats or a comforting chicken curry.

Long live the start of the school year, long live the oysters

A bottle of white wine.

Strub Grüner Veltliner 2020 | SAQ Code: 13630503 | $19.75

The oyster season has begun and to change Sauvignon, Chardonnay or even Riesling, here is the grüner vetliner. This variety is the specialty of the Austrian vineyard. However, it is also found in some German vineyards as is the case at the Strub estate. This white opens with notes of lemon and almond. The crisp and juicy attack is enhanced by a rounder texture created by the addition of whole grapes in the tank during fermentation.

Unbeatable

A red wine bottle.

Altamente Vinos Volalto Jumilla 2020 | SAQ Code: 14265755 | $18.60

SAQ

It wouldn’t be shocking if this Spanish red sold for over $30. It is made with old vines, not grafted, grown at an altitude of more than 900 meters, organically grown and it spends six months in oak barrels. However, the Altamente group, founded in 1999, offers this lovely cuvée below the $20 mark. Based on Monastrell, known as Mourvèdre, it opens with notes of plum, blackberry and raspberry. On the palate, it’s elegant, fresh, subtly spicy and just enough full-bodied to accompany red meat on the barbecue.

extend the summer

A bottle with an orange liquid.

Cirka Passion | SAQ code: 15064226 | $38.25

Back to school has arrived, but summer is far from over. To enjoy it, the new drink prepared by Cirka is ideal. After making a name for itself with its gins and vodka, the Montreal distillery now offers a liqueur flavored with passion fruit. Like all of the company’s other products, the base alcohol is prepared with local grains. In order to maintain balance, the liquor contains less alcohol than the standard, ie 20%. Both delicate and fragrant, the drink can be enjoyed alone with both feet in water or in a mimosa. Pure delight!
