My Wine Canada Wine Club Feature: Marynissen Estates Winery
Our featured winery for July is the wonderful Marynissen Estates Winery! A boutique winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Marynissen estate is home to the oldest planting of cabernet sauvignon vines in Canada. Join our Wine Club today to receive a superb selection of Marynissen wines right to your door! Keep reading for a look inside July's wine packs.
In 1953, viticulture pioneer John Marynissen and his wife Adrianna purchased the property the winery now sits on and they began growing their own grapes in 1976. The winery was founded in 1990 and today the Marynissen spirit, vision, and passion continues through the terrific winemaking led by Mitchell McCurdy. With a continuing focus on crafting excellent cabernet sauvignon, their grand portfolio also includes a variety of superb red blends, single-varietal reds, and exceptional white wines like chardonnay, riesling, and gewürztraminer. One sip of their wines is enough to transport your senses to their vineyard in Niagara.
Our team had the pleasure of tasting Marynissen’s wines and we are excited for you to try them as well. Here are some of our favourites that are featured in July’s wine club packages.
This medium-bodied wine is a dry, well-balanced, and harmonious red. This cabernet sauvignon has aromas of vanilla, tobacco and black plum, and light floral, red currant, and plum flavours on the palate. We'd suggest pairing it with veggie burgers or pepper-crusted ahi tuna.
A beautiful chardonnay with an exquisite toasty, apple nose that delights upon opening. It's medium-bodied with fresh orange and pineapple notes on the palate. Enjoy it with parmesan truffle risotto or scallops and chorizo paella.
A gold medal winner at the 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada, this outstanding pinot noir is showing notes of violets, raspberries, and oak spice. This beautiful garnet-coloured wine pairs perfectly with mozzarella-stuffed meatballs or pan seared duck.
This delightful white wine is the perfect blend of gewürztraminer, viognier, pinot gris, and muscat. Notes of toasty oak and baking spice make this wine a great pair with a cobb salad with lobster or grilled lemon-ginger shrimp.
