From British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley:
Pinot lovers, rejoice! One of our newest winery partners, SpierHead crafts outstanding Pinot – of both the Noir and Gris varietals.
- Pinot Noir, 2013 ($24) – “A deeper, plushy styled pinot noir.” Anthony Gismondi
- Pinot Gris, 2014 ($22) – "Lemonade and jasmine spill out of the glass, with layers of lime leaf, lemongrass, and the smallest hint of sea spray. Three food pairing suggestions: seafood, seafood, seafood!" Kurtis Kolt
- Rosé, 2013 ($20) – “It’s 100% Pinot Noir and offers juicy cherries, strawberries and rhubarb atop wild sage, forest floor and roses.” Daenna Van Mulligen
These are fruit wines like you’ve never tasted before. Succulent, tantalizing, they are great sippers but pair well with food too. And their award-winning grape wines aren’t too shabby either!
- Pink Elephant Sparkling Wine, 2012 ($25) – Granny Smith apple cuvée with Cassis, it’s Kir Royale reborn Elephant Island-style. Mom will love this!
- Cherry Wine, 2013 ($18) – Cherries, chocolate, and almonds…this is the inspiration for all those love songs!
- Cassis Fortified Wine, 2013 ($22) – One of the most amazing sweet wines you will ever taste. Pair with cheese, over ice cream, or with sparkling wine, it’s divine and it sells out fast.
Members of our Wine Club were recently treated to wines from Black Widow in March’s package. Expect rich reds and aromatic whites from this winery!
- Gewurztraminer, 2013 ($22) – “This is a deliciously dry Gewurztraminer, with spice, herbs and grapefruit on the palate. 90 Points.” John Schreiner
- Pinot Gris, 2013 ($21) – Apple, pear and melon aromas with a touch of citrus and minerality.
- Merlot, 2012 ($30) – Flavourful, smoky, and rich.Pair this with barbecues everywhere!
From Ontario’s Niagara & Prince Edward County regions:
One of the newest wineries in Prince Edward County, Trail Estate is blazing a path of their own with industry accolades for their aromatic whites and Pinot Noir.
- White, 2013 ($22) – “Light, bright and shiny with juicy riesling acidity and apple fruit delivering the message… Spice and a hint of evergreen. Light- to mid-weight, balanced and almost crunchy with the vaguest sense of sweetness. Good to very good length.” David Lawrason, Wine Align
- Rosé, 2013 ($22) – Strawberry, rhubarb, honey and all things good. One of our favourite rosés of the year.
- Pinot Noir - Unfiltered, 2013 ($26) – Fruit-forward, herbaceous and earthy. A great expression of County Pinot Noir.
Synonymous with high quality, meticulous detail and a non-interventive approach, Pearl Morissette wines are crafted in the traditional French method.
- Chardonnay Cuvée Dix-Neuvième, 2012 ($40) – Apple, lemon, spiced pear, walnut - this is a truly outstanding Chardonnay with Burgundian elegance.
- Cuvée Métis, 2013 ($27) - A blend of Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir, this is a fresh and vibrant fruit-driven wine with flavours of raspberry, blackberry, bramble and baking spice.
- Cabernet Franc Cuvée Persephone, 2011 ($38) – "This wine is finely structured on the palate with fresh acidity and present, yet soft, tannins. There are flavours of tangy red berries, violets and earl grey. The finish is long…a very lovely balance between structure and grace." Jake Skakun
Creekside continues to produce wines that are unmistakably distinctive, that push conventions and that reflect the unique micro-climates of the Niagara Peninsula.
- Sauvignon Blanc, 2013 ($14) – "The Creekside Estate Winery 2013 Sauvignon Blanc displays the ideal freshness and citrus notes as well as intense grassy/herbal notes that tip the hat to counterparts from New Zealand’s Marlborough region." Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson
- Laura’s White, 2012 ($19) – Fresh, bright and aromatic, highlighted by grassy, citrus notes with underlying tropical fruits. Delicious!
- Syrah, 2013 ($16) – Medium-bodied,bright fruit flavours of wild raspberry and strawberry, followed by a savoury cedar and white pepper finish. At $16, this wine is a steal!
With the famed Jean-Pierre Colas as their winemaker, Niagara’s 13th Street Winery continues to outdo themselves with every vintage.
- June’s Vineyard Chardonnay, 2012 ($22) – Green apple, lemon with fresh cream, toast, and minerality, this wine begs for fresh seafood or creamy pastas!
- Gamay Noir, 2012 ($20) – "Fresh and juicy, with vibrant crunchy cherry and cranberry notes, the Gamay 2012 works like a charm with roasted chicken or a charcuterie and cheese board. Chill slightly for the best experience." Michelle Bouffard
- Cabernet Merlot, 2011 ($20) – Luscious, medium-bodied with dark fruits, spice and licorice, this wine is absolutely gorgeous. Grab it at the unbelievable price of $20 while you can because they will sell out soon.
