A racy, ripe pinot grigio, a sweet low-alcohol red and a classically styled chenin blanc give us three delicious kosher wines for the holiday season.

Lion & Dove Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2022

(2.5 stars)

This is delicious, ripe-tasting pinot grigio, with flavors of peaches and apricots and a squirt of citrus to keep it lively. Beware: It’s gulpable. Kosher for Passover. Mevushal. Vegan. Alcohol by volume: 12 percent. Bottle Weight: 495 grams (Light).

Imported and distributed locally by DMV Distributing.

Cantina Gabriele Vinò Sweet Red

(1.5 stars)

I’ve written before that nobody does sweet red wine better than the Italians. This example tastes of bing cherry, cocoa and brown sugar, with an appealing carbonation to balance the sweetness. Serve it slightly chilled, though not refrigerator temperature. Keep some around for your chocolate dessert. Kosher for Passover. Mevushal. ABV: 5.5 percent. BW: 555 grams (Average).

Imported by Victor Wines. Distributed locally by M. Touton Selection.

Unorthodox Chenin Blanc 2022

(2.5 stars)

Coastal Region, South Africa, $21

Flavors of Granny Smith apple, Bosc pear and sage highlight this light-bodied, refreshing wine that partners well with salads and lighter seafood dishes. From Backsberg Family Wines, a leading kosher producer in South Africa. Kosher for Passover. Mevushal. Vegan. ABV: 12.5 percent. BW: 555 grams (Average).

Imported by Victor Wines. Distributed locally by M. Touton Selection.
