This Week’s Wine Picks from Prince Edward County: Part 2

June 18th’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 everyone who posted Twitter and Facebook comments and suggestions.

Here is this week’s selections:

Huff Estates, 2010 pinot noir

An inviting light plum red in colour, our `10 Pinot exhibits aromas of cherry, fresh earth and dried herbal nuances of thyme and sage with a hint of anise, licorice and tea leaf.  On the palate, look for a refreshing burst of cherry pit  flavours supported by pleasantly chewy youthful tannins  buoyed by a lively acidity. Serve slightly chilled.

Huff Estates, 2009 south bay chardonnay

Cool and Captivating. Our version embraces you with citrus aromas, spicy pear amid floral undertones and a dash of dried peach. The eager palate is rewarded with mineral, stone fruit, spice and vanilla custard flavours. Artfully crafted with a deft handling of oak yet bolstered with lively acidity.

Huff Estates, 2011 pinot gris


Dry, crisp and engaging with lively white floral aromas underscored by pear and white peach notes. A backbone of acidity on a mineral frame is highlighted by flavours of white grapefruit and a subtle peach pit-like tartness on the way to an appealing finish.

The Grange Cabernet Franc

Light style Cab Francs go great with earthy and salty dishes, making charcuterie and cheese an easy match. Because of this, it is also a good match for things like lamb, duck or beef steak, beef ravioli or even a roast.

Tasting notes are provided by the wineries.
