Each box comes with an information sheet, which offers tasting notes for each wine as well as some information on the winery and recipe pairing ideas. I really like the inclusion of the recipe pairings.
I was glad to get another copy of Imbibe magazine in my Plonk box. This is a bi-monthly publication with interesting articles and drink recipes.
Fabulous! This sparkling rose was acidic and tart with apple, lemon and strawberry notes. It tasted bright and felt perfect for summer drinking. We had it chilled with gazpacho for dinner and it was delicious. It’s dry and very reminiscent of champagne.
Pressed Pinot Noir Quinta Del Mar 2014
I don’t see the 2014 for sale online anywhere so I apologize for not having a link for you. While I loved the label on this bottle and my husband and I definitely gravitate towards pinot noirs, this one wasn’t a win for us. We had it with grilled skirt steak and I found it a little too harsh for my taste buds. I prefer wines that are more smooth and full-bodied.
Verdict: While this box wasn’t a complete hit for us, I am so glad I discovered the Pere Mata Rose! My husband and I enjoy trying new wines each month, especially from smaller boutique wineries. I think the recipe pairings are a nice touch too. I also want to note that if you fall in love with one of the wines they send you can order an entire case at a 16% discount with free shipping. This box isn’t going to wow you with value, but if you appreciate being introduced to new wines with organic growing practices this might be a nice subscription to try out.
