This Week’s Wine Picks from Prince Edward County

This Week’s Wine Picks from Prince Edward County

Prince Edward County includes a large island in southern Ontario has two claims to fame: some of the finest wineries in Canada and one of the country’s best beaches – Sandbanks.

Well we had some great success in our wine tour earlier this week.

Thanks to Darrin, Maggie (Sandbanks E W), Katekyn (Huff E W), Cory (CAS counsel) and everyone else for their great suggestions and recommendations.

So Far the Boca Noir had been a big hit.

 

 

Here this week’s picks:

Baco Noir Reserve VQA (0)

Intense fruit notes of blackberry and chocolate. Toasted  oak barrel aged

 

 

Baco Noir VQA (1) 

A full-bodied red wine with intense plum and wild cherry  flavours.Notes of toasted oak provide a lingering finish. Our signature wine

 

Dunes VQA (1)

An impressive white wine with a peach and floral bouquet and a hint of passion fruit. Excellent with light meals.

 

Rosé VQA (1)

Luscious aromas and brilliant flavours of rich raspberry, tangerine, and pink grapefruit. This is a refreshing wine that is excellent as an aperitif or served with grilled chicken or fish.

 

2007 Merlot Reserve

A proud graduate of the classic Ontario ’07 vintage. Dark garnet in colour and front-loaded with aromas of tobacco leaf, black cherry, savoury thyme and juniper berries. The palate is treated to eau-de-vie Kirsch cherry flavours, roasted coffee bean and toasted oak.

 

2010 Pinot Gris

Innocence and Purity. Lively white floral, lemon zest, beeswax and almond aromas characterize our zesty 2010 version. A backbone of acidity on distinctly mineral frame is highlighted by flavours of green apple and tart lemon and grapefruit notes on the way to a crisp appealing finish. An ideal aperitif wine.
