Made entirely from Chenin Blanc grapes, this attractive sparkler spent 20 months in the bottle prior to dégorgement. It offers citrusy Chenin on the nose, toasty brioche notes and finely balances rich creaminess, mineral and racy acidity.
Clear but opaquely deep plum-red. Strong, smoky nose of stewed plums and black liquorice. A tooth-stainer that will put hair on your chest with powerful, oaky plum and cherry flavours and sturdy tannins. Best with a dry-aged grass-fed New York striploin steak done medium-rare. Good for another couple of years.
Syrah/Grenache (70/30) made dry, in a nod to Provence; rhubarb, strawberry, clove spice and stony notes with good structure and length.
This is a well-made and refreshing cider with ripe notes of apple, pear skin, and just a hint of citrus rind to keep it refreshingly perky through the finish. It’s a nice beginning cider that shows the emerging Ontario style — dry, crisp and tart.
Imported and bottled locally in Nova Scotia, this one is a bit shy on the nose, but shows typical Chardonnay fruit profile with distinctive lemon barley-sugar character in the mouth. Clean, well balanced and economical value.
Ruby core with garnet rim. Wide ranging aromas include raspberry, vanilla, cloves, graphite and forest floor. Generous, round palate with an elegant balance of juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins. Almond notes on the finish. 100% Sangiovese. A fine partner with game meats.
Made from unique Greek varieties Xinomavro, Krasato and Stavroto. Intriguing nose of sour cherry, balanced oak and soft spices. Medium-bodied; full mid-palate with a dense fruity core. Tannins are almost powdery. Good balance and long tight finish. Ready to drink and perfect for a barbecue steak.
