Gray Monk’s impressive portfolio is the work of an amazing vineyard team, including winemaker Jen Oishi who believes each glass of wine tells a story of where it came from. It’s her hope to share a bit of Gray Monk’s history with each of you, through exceptional wines such as the top-selling Pinot Gris and other favourites among customers and critics alike.
Without further ado, here’s a sneak peek at what to expect in your March Wine Club box:
An award-winning rosé with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, peach, melon, white flowers, and cranberry. Notes of red berry, pink grapefruit, and peach on the palate. Pairs well with smoked prosciutto-wrapped brie or mushroom-stuffed bell peppers.
This chardonnay offers a bouquet of fresh yellow apples, peach, tropical fruit, and white florals. Smooth and off-dry with flavours of green apple, tangerine, peach, lemon, and lime zest. This white pairs perfectly with crab cakes on a bed of sautéed veggies or a dessert of crème brûlée.
A medium-bodied red with cedar, cherry, and oak spice on the nose with flavours of mocha chocolate and plum. Scoring 90 points from Tony Aspler, this outstanding red is superb with lamb burger with tzatziki or pork loin with a red wine reduction.
A blend of syrah and cabernet sauvignon that offers a bouquet of cedar, savoury blackberry, and smoky oak. Flavours of spicy blackberry, dried herb, and bitter chocolate on the palate. An excellent partner with veal chops with crimini mushrooms or Mediterranean stuffed eggplant.
