Pelee’s Night Glider would never win a crowd favourite competition, but it is reassuring to know that ‘unusual’ wines can have a strong following. Not everyone wants rich ‘n smooth. Did all you marketing experts hear that!
This Gamay/Zweigelt blend could loosely be described as a Beaujolais’ country cousin. A lightish, refresher with some country barn feeling. A bit ‘wild’, and that’s its appeal. Don’t freak out on your first sip. Give it a chance, and I’m sure you’ll find it to be a perfect burger wash-down, or even better partner for the family of white of white meats, or pizza. Lightly chill.
Many refer to this as the ‘bat’ wine, but the creature on the label is actually a Southern Flying Squirrel. So now you know!
