Hay Maker Sauvignon Blanc will knock you out

This sustainable find from New Zealand is a surprising step up from local favorite Matua with its pale straw color and lifted notes of fresh grapefruit, guava and nettles, which lead to a lively palate of fresh, concentrated fruit flavors. Its bright acidity provides a crisp, mouthwatering finish.

Hailing from New Zealand’s legendary Marlborough region, Hay Maker’s well-crafted design really hits the spot this time of year. Try teaming it with roasted chicken, seared fish with Asian spices, or with a well-stocked charcuterie board.

Hay Maker is strong contender to be champion of the Northern Colorado Sauv Blanc scene.

There is a wealth of fantastic wines from the down under area of the globe. You can pick up a bottle of Hay Maker, as well as many other wonderful choices from New Zealand and Australia at Wyatt’s where we offer you a global approach to spirit and wine tasting.

Spokesman Oakville Cabernet deserves a shoutout

Are you ready to let your wine do the talking for you—but in a good way?

Then pick up a bottle of Spokesman Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.

Spokesman Cabernet is sourced from benchlands and hillsides vineyards within the Oakville appellation in Napa Valley. This exceptional Cabernet has intense black currant, blackberry, and dark chocolate complexity. It is a big wine with integrated tannins and balanced nuances of French oak, utilizing both new and second year barrels.

Upon opening, it expresses an iridescent black core with opulent dark fruit on the nose. Waves of black currant and cassis come across on the palate with cedar notes and mint appearing in the background.

This big, brawny red takes tasting to a new level, making it a sensational partner for both toasting and meals in which you want to make an impression. Try it with prime rib, expertly grilled steaks, or a slow cooked pork roast.

As Coloradans look to entertain more, you can find wines for this, or any season, at larger, local, family-owned liquor stores, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, that offer you a superior selection with knowledgeable staff who will help you find the perfect wine for any occasion.

Ring in the Holiday Season with Beaujolais Nouveau!

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November (Nov. 21) with fireworks, music, and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine’s grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate this first wine of the season.

Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be drunk young. Most vintages should be consumed by the following May after its release. However, in excellent vintages (such as the 2000) the wine can live much longer and can be enjoyed until the next harvest rolls around.

The region of Beaujolais is known for its fabulous food. The famed Paul Bocuse restaurant is just minutes from the heart of Beaujolais, as is Georges Blanc’s. These great restaurants have plenty of Beaujolais Nouveau on their wine lists. The wine goes well with either high cuisine or Friday night’s pizza.

An annual favorite, these French first harvest varietals are perfect for holiday parties or Thanksgiving feasts:

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau: Vibrant red fruits flavors of strawberries and currants show on the palate with an intense perfume that make this wine a perfect accompaniment for cheese, charcuterie, and traditional holiday fare. Serve slightly chilled.

La Perliere Beaujolais Villages: On the nose, one gets notes of raspberry and cherry. On the palate, flavors of smoke, mineral, and strawberry are present with soft tannins. This is a medium-bodied wine with a short, peppery finish.

Grab a bottle and see what all the hubbub is about for yourself. Locally, you can find these limited edition, celebrated wines at larger, independently owned wine shops, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, that offer you a superior selection from around the globe and an experienced staff that will help you find the perfect bottle for every occasion.
