That’s right. While you wait for Game of Thrones to return on July 16th, you can get a head start on drinking the official Game of Thrones wines. Uproxx announced today that three Game of Thrones wines are now available for purchase.
So, which Game of Thrones wine is right for you? According to the descriptions, here’s which side you should pick:
House Lannister: 2016 Chardonnay, Central Coast ($19.99)
With so many glasses downed and still no wine teeth, it makes sense that Cersei was a Chardonnay drinker. The 2016 Central Coast Chardonnay bears the Golden Lion seal of House Lannister. Tasting notes include “enticing aromas of stone fruit and white blossoms lead to a rich, creamy palate of peaches, apricots, tangerine, Meyer lemon, baking spices and honey, balanced by mouth-watering acidity.”
House Targaryen: 2014 Red Blend, Paso Robles
Like the three-headed dragon adorning the House Targaryen sigil, the Paso Robles Red is a blend of multiple varietals, including Syrah, Tempranillo, and Petit Sirah. Plus, it’s also made in the warmest region of the three wines, just like the deserts where Daenarys was exiled. Tasting notes include “Dark black cherry, brambly blackberry, vanilla and cocoa aromas. Soft, juicy black fruit flavors combine in the mouth with hints of leather and spice.”
House Stark: 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon ($49.99)
Of course, if you’re going to hunker down for a long winter, a full bodied Cabernet is in order. This alpha wine was designed with the alpha Direwolf in mind. Tasting notes include “A delicious nose of blackcurrant, briar and Tahitian vanilla all interwoven through extended aging in the finest French oak barrels. A long and intensely pleasurable finish on the palate, delivers the caress of smooth tannins with a touch of cocoa.”
Final fact: the winemaker, Bob Cabral, is a major Game of Thrones fan. Combine that with his experience crafting wines for Williams Selyem, and you can trust that these wines are truly designed with GoT fans in mind.
