One of Savvy Sommelier Susan’s recent wine finds!
Winemaker Kevin Panagapkos has been involved in the Ontario wine industry over 10+ years, with a brief stint in New Zealand. In 2007, he decided to start his own ‘virtual winery’ named 2027 Cellars. Why 2027? Kevin owns a small Pinot Noir vineyard in Beamsville & it has the registration number 2027! He focuses on making wines using three grape varietals – Riesling, Pinot Noir & Chardonnay – to create a clear expression of the terroir.
Cheers & Enjoy!
2027 Cellars ‘Falls Vineyard’ Riesling VQA 2008
Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: This Mosel-style Riesling has clean crisp aromas of citrus, mineral & a whiff of petrol. Dry, juicy & definitely mouth-watering, the fresh flavours of lemon-lime, stone fruit & green apple complement racy acidity & minerality. Great balance & a lasting finish – a fantastic wine find!
Suggested food pairings: A great choice for fish or pork tenderloin.
