Calling all wine drinkers and beach lovers: We’ve partnered with Firstleaf, a subscription-based wine club, to create a Coastal Living selection of wines meant to be enjoyed by the sea.
What it is:
A trial pack of three wines chosen by Sunset Wine Editor (and monthly Coastal Living contributor) Sara Schneider with Coastal Living recipes in mind.
Alkoomi 2014 Sèmillon/Sauvignon Blanc (Frankland River, Western Australia). The Sèmillon side of this white Bordeaux–style blend from Down Under carries richness and honeyed pear flavors, while the spritely Sauvignon Blanc brings a tart kick of lime along with both fresh blossoms and herbs.
Annabella 2013 Chardonnay (Napa Valley). A touch of buttered popcorn wraps around pretty spiced apple and lemon crème brûlée in lovely balance.
Hawthorne Grove 2013 Pinot Noir (Monterey County). A silky, lighter-bodied red brimming with cherry and strawberry flavors layered with warm baking spices and floral aromas.
