Wines for the Long Weekend
Okanagan Spring Wine Festival
*Best of Varietal Winners*
Tasting between 3:30pm-6:30pm
Gray Monk Odyssey Rose Brut 2016
This wine was made in the classic sparkling wine method to retain the fruitiness of the grape varieties. The wine displays fresh melon and berry flavours followed by a smooth creamy palate and crisp finish. It is complementary to a wide range of foods and occasions. Serve chilled.
The View Pinotage Rose 2017
Intense aromatics of strawberry and cotton candy are followed by flavours of pink grapefruit and tart cranberry. A dry, crisp finish and pleasing fruity notes add to its elegance. Pair it with poultry, arugula, strawberry and walnut salad, Caprese salad or prosciutto and balsamic flatbread.
Summerhill Organic Riesling 2016
Grapes were hand-picked over multiple days, whole cluster pressed and fermented cold. Natural unfermented grape sugars balance beautifully with the crisp acidity. Aromas of Citrus, Honey and Stone fruit, followed by Honey, Lemon, and Apple on the palate.
Pairs wonderfully with white fish, honeyed ham, spicy dishes, and apricot-flavoured soft cheese
Therapy Pinot Noir 2016
Light cherry in colour, this wine is launched with aromatics reminiscent of spice, cloves, vanilla and red currants on the nose. Layered on the palate is toasty oak, red fruit and vanilla with focus towards the soft tea like tannins and toasty complexity. The finish is smooth and textured with lots of red fruit, which leads to a wine that can be drank now or aged for a couple more years.
See Ya Later Ranch Ping 2015
Deep, dark colour red with a smoked meat, charred thorns, ripe blackberries and an undercurrent of thick, ripe plum in what is a flat blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Fourteen months in French and American oak barrels upped the wood-bound structure and stave-sticky tannins of this big, savoury red. Four grams of residual sugar makes it go down easy, particularly with big, peppery steaks. Ready to drink.
