Here’s a LOCAL EDITION of the red BORDEAUX STYLE
Rockway has come up with a fantastic bistro red. A mini Bordeaux at a reasonable price. The pucker of Cabernet along with the fruity cushion of Merlot. Medium-bodied with the elbows-on-the-table, bistro feeling. Bring on the burger, the chops or the BBQed beef. For me this is role-model for Ontario reds – the style that Ontario can comfortably produce, and which is unique outside of France.
In the past year I’ve had several good – and well priced, wines from Rockway but have never visited. A winery attached to a golf course fooled me into low expectations – but I was wrong. Off my rocker! Will pack the clubs and be there this summer.
