After some very “difficult” work of taste-testing a few very excellent wines, we have narrowed down our choices for a wine list that we believe complement our Latin menu very nicely! We have kept a few of our previous wines that were popular, and included some new additions that will be amazing to enjoy in the summer outside on the patio or inside the restaurant while taking in our tropical decor!
One of the favourite new additions is the Sibling Rivalry Riesling-Gewurztraminer blend from the Niagara region. Made by the Speck Brothers, this wine is crisp and clean; it’s not too sweet, and has lime and lychee undertones – which are a great pairing with our seafood and chicken menu items such as the world-famous Coconut Shrimp or the Pollo Enchilada.
Another addition is the Finca Los Primos Malbec. Vanilla and spice undertones make this Argentinian red a great sip alongside some of our spicer menu items, such as the Enchiladas con Mole or the Carne Asada Frito.
A great summer sipper is the Gabbiano Rosato. Although from Italy (we’ll forgive it this time), it is a delightful summer wine that will carry into fall as well. If you are a wine aficionado, you will know that there has been a great deal of improvement in the world of blush or rose wines. No longer so sweet that the back of your throat hurts, this rosato has a slightly sweet palate with strawberry undertones and a crisp finish – no syrupy aftertaste here! We think it goes very well with our Mango Honey-Rummed Chicken or our Guacamole Fresca for those days on the patio when you just want a light snack!
We hope you take a look at our new wine list the next time you’re in – we’re very happy with it and hope you will be, too! Please ask your server if you have any questions or would like to try a sample!
