From a limited release of just 9000 bottles, this Dominican rum is packed with character. Aromas of vanilla custard, apricots and leather with an underlying freshness suggestive of green leaves. Flavours of figs, sultanas, vanilla and spice. Long and creamy without any heaviness.
The ’09 still requires a year or two to fully blossom and smooth out the tannins. That being said, cassis, black cherry, blackberry¸ smoke, tobacco, vanilla, spice and mocha are all in play. Drink from 2015 until 2027.
This shows lovely freshness on the nose with a citrus core, green apple notes, baked bread and subtle toasted vanilla notes. The depth of flavour is a marvel with such beautiful texture from beginning to end. The focus is on the lemon/citrus flavours that light up the palate and turn mellow on the finish with just a hint of toasted spices.
A minerally and fresh white wine with a nose of peach skin and white blossoms; a beautifully balanced wine with apple and lemon flavours and mouth-watering acidity. Match it with shellfish or salmon.
Fragrant fresh green apple and citrus scents, with the same crisp fruit flavours carrying through on the clean, minerally dry palate. Finishing with bright acidity, this is my standard wine to pair with Nova Scotia oysters on the half-shell.
Pale yellow. Delicate nose, elegant citrus and mineral notes. Off-dry but nonetheless refreshing thanks to its energetic acidity. Light body; subtle apple taste in the light finish. Ready to drink and delicious with sole meunière.
The bomb, right here. The most complex and interesting rosé from Niagara I have tasted. Made from 100% Pinot Noir, the nose is tight, delicate and complex with a range of red fruits and floral notes. It shows its true beauty on the palate with such expressive crushed red berries, layers of complexity, earth and bramble undertones and taut tension between the electric acidity and the juicy fruits all leading to a fresh, clean and super-long finish.
