Friday February 15, 2018
A sneak peek into 2018 wines!
See Ya Later Ranch Pinot Gris 2018
This Pinot Gris leans to the Alsatian style, emphasizing mouthfeel. Well-integrated apple, pear and citrus peel flavours with some emerging tropical fruit. Crisp and lemony with well-integrated oak tones.
Dirty Laundry Hush 2018
A delightful blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cab Franc & Cab Sauv.
Tasting Notes: A burst of fresh strawberries, rhubarb & cranberries are followed by cotton candy & candied red apple with a hint of sweetness on the finish.
Hester Creek Cabernet Franc Rose 2018
Unoaked and refreshingly juicy, this Rosé has vibrant aromas of grapefruit, rhubarb and strawberry with a touch of white pepper and cinnamon on the nose. A lush, ripe palate follows with wild strawberry and rhubarb flavours with a bright, full mouth-feel. Slightly off-dry, this delightful wine pairs well with classic Mediterranean cuisine such as olives, salami, and medium to strong cheeses.
Le Vieux Pin Petit Blanc 2018
This vintage of this unique blend is Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Viognier and Chardonnay (unoaked) dominant. Few other aromatic varieties like Muscat, Marsanne and Roussanne are in the blend making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. Green Citrus fruit, gooseberries, currants and touch of tropical fruits greet you on the nose. While orchard fruits are tasted on the mid palate, the finish and the core of this wine is citrus and gooseberry dominant.
