Wines Under $20

I found another wine under $20 that you may want to try. Apothic Crush is $17.99 right now at NSLC and it tastes like cupcakes. Seriously, that’s the best description I can come up with for Apothic Crush, cupcakes; chocolate and caramel cupcakes with a little red wine chaser.

I’m not saying it’s not delicious, I’m just not sure it’s wine. By that I mean I mean I’m just not sure it’s wine in the classic sense of picking the grapes, crushing the grapes, letting them ferment, bottling the results and putting those results on the shelf for sale. Apothic Crush might be better classified as a “wine beverage;” there’s wine in there somewhere but I’m just not sure what else is in the bottle.

If you have a suggestion for a wine that we should all try, drop me a note, take a picture of the label if you haven’t tossed the bottle in the recycle bin yet and email it to peter.harrison@bellmedia.ca
