Thanksgiving Wines Part 2
Led by Swirl Wine Experts
Joie en Famille Gewurztraminer 2016 $27.99
A rich, delectable gewurztraminer with great weight and a loads of charm. With a touch of sweetness, the wine is balanced with firm acids and pretty floral notes throughout. Finish is minty with both under ripe tropical notes and citrus fruit.
Poplar Grove Rose 2018 $28.99
Hues of ripe nectarines plunge into the glass. Sultry aromas of fresh strawberries & rhubarb combine with an enticing hint of vanilla. A robust palate of cranberries and snappy citrus notes is well-balanced with delicate floral notes. A flawless summer sipper, also perfect any time of the year.
Monte Creek Reserve Pinot Noir 2017 $29.99
French oak barrels were used to age this beauty to create a distinctive wine. Sweet floral notes greet you as you open the bottle and take your first inhale. Its medium body and smooth tannins give way to bright acidity and flavours of baked blueberries, strawberry preserves, cola, and toasted walnuts. The silky presence in the palate allows this wine to drink well now. The structured tannin promises graceful aging through 2028 and beyond. Enjoy with salmon, mushroom dishes, roast duck breast or pink peppercorn steak.
Clos du Soleil Syrah 2016 $32.99
Immediately the perfumed nose of this wine envelops the taster with aromas of freshly crushed raspberries and black currants complimented with subtle notes of baking spice, sagebrush, and pepper.
On the palate a bright and fresh acidity is met with these same flavours of wild raspberries accented with notes of blackcurrant and a hint of cloves. Soft and supple in the mouth with very fine tannins.
