A straightforward Pinot Noir with cherry, plum, spice, red flowers and vanilla attributes. Fine length, suave tannins and ready to drink.
Yellow straw in colour with a lime tint, showing a nose of spicy apple, green nuts and a touch of barnyard. Medium- to full-bodied, dry, spicy and rich on the palate with a toasty, apple flavour and great length.
Brewed on the grounds of the grand English estate Thornbridge Hall, this IPA get its intense grapefruit and spruce notes from big, bold American hops. Pouring bright golden, the bitterness is fairly matched by a honey, caramel malt base. Try it with intense dishes like spicy beef Pad Thai and a nice slice of Stilton.
From 27-year-old St Hubertus Vineyard vines in the relatively cool Kelowna area. Fragrant, fruity, juicy and redolent with pink grapefruit, sweet peach and lingering spice. There’s richness on the palate, enhanced by 8 g/l residual sugar. More off-dry than past vintages, so consider pairing it to balance spicy heat.
This great-value Riesling starts off with a pale green-yellow colour and then follows with significant minerals, smoke, lime cordial, bergamot, peach and yellow apple. Although it is light-bodied, it is oh so flavourful, with just a drop of residual sugar offering a counterpoint to the tangy acidity. The length is excellent. A perfect pairing may be found with either spicy sushi or braised pork with an apple-onion compote.
Beautifully floral with peach aromas and flavours, vibrant, minerally and fresh with great complexity, balance and an uplifted finish. Refreshing and mouth-filling on its own, but a tremendously versatile wine with shellfish, white meat and Asian cuisine.
