Here’s an opportunity to grab some primo local wines at the September 3rd release. And a cuddly winter red from South Africa.
JACKSON-TRIGGS 09 ‘SILVER SERIES’ GEWURZTRAMINER, VQA Niagara 247767 $19.95
Jackson-Triggs attempt at a dry, rich style Gewurz is a huge success. It’s an exciting wine because the three elements – flavour, richness and freshness are all playing equally well. Working the tune like a jazz trio. Impossible to drink this wine and not feel happy.
HENRY OF PELHAM 09 BACO NOIR RESERVE, VQA Ontario 461699 $24.95 (see yesterday’s post)
HENRY OF PELHAM 09 FAMILY TREE RED, VQA Niagara 247882 $18.95
Medium-bodied, multi-grape blend with bright flavours and lots of vitality. Cheerful and very gulpable. Very bistro. Nice peppery flavours from the Syrah in the blend.
