The fun story of Riverview Cellars Syrah

Posted by Eva

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Many winemakers will tell you that ‘wine is made in the vineyard’. This is very true at Riverview Cellars located in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.  Similar to neighbouring Colaneri Estates , Cattail Creek & Pondview wineries, at Riverview, the Pillitteri family are grape growers first & they recently opened a winery.  Since older vines, produce better fruit to make better wine, get ready to taste the age of Riverview’s vineyard with each sip of this Syrah! Our Sommeliers rave about this wine.

Riverview Cellars ‘Red Truck’ Syrah VQA 2010

$29.95
Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Whether you call it Syrah or Shiraz, the wine is made with the same grape variety.  This bold wine overflows the glass with BIG aromas of red & black plums, berries with warm spices that carries into the taste…then lingers forever.

Suggested food pairings: Fire up the BBQ! Serve with steak with blue cheese, beef tenderloin with all the trimmings, even hamburgers would be delicious.  And it would be delicious with a piece of dark chocolate cake too!

You’ll taste the terroir in this Chardonnay

Pondview Estates Winery is a family affair. The Puglisi family have been grape growers for over 3 decades. In 2008, Lou was crowned the distinguished title “Grape King’ & toured the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia where he met other small family owned wineries.

Returned inspired, Lou & his extended family decided to establish Pondview to craft their own wines made with grapes from their well established vineyard.  More & more grape growers in Niagara are transforming their grape farming business to incorporate a winery as well. With a commitment to viticultural & winemaking excellence along with a welcoming tasting room offering traditional Italian cheese & antipasto, Pondview has become an overnight success.

Cheers & Enjoy!

Pondview Estates ‘Bella Terra’ Chardonnay VQA 2010

$24.20
Savvy Sommelier
Tasting Notes: Made with grapes from the outstanding 2010 vintage, the perfectly ripe grapes were barrel fermented & aged 9 months in both French & American oak. The result is a full-bodied wine with rich aromas of vanilla, toffee & orchard fruit (think pear, peach, apple) with smooth, creamy full flavours & a deliciously long finish.

Suggested Food Pairings: Chilled on its own or with your favorite seafood (can you just imagine this wine with steamed lobster?) or pasta with a rich cheese or cream sauce.

Get sizzling with these summertime wines!

Eating outdoors is one of the best ways to enjoy summer.  Why dine inside when we do that all winter long?

I strongly believe that a good meal deserves to be served with good wine. To make sure that I have wine on hand this summer, I took a daytrip to Prince Edward County – a three hour drive from Ottawa or Toronto – to buy wines at the wineries located off-the-beaten-track as well as stock piled favorites I discovered at a wine tasting that Savvy Company hosted showcasing wines from Niagara-on-the-Lake.  In both cases, wines were purchased directly from the winemaker as the wines at the LCBO has a modest selection of all of the wines that are crafted at the wineries throughout Ontario.  For a greater selection, contact the wineries directly or contact me & I’ll arrange for these wines to be sent to your home, office or even cottage!

Debbie`s Summertime Wine Picks:

Sparkling wine

Prince Edward County pick: Lighthall Vineyard Progression Sparkling Vidal VQA 2011 $20 – refreshing lemon/lime/grapefruit combo of tastes with fine bubbles

Niagara-on-the-Lake pick:  Konzelmann Sparkling Rosé $16 – looks like a sunset in the glass.  Dry, refreshing – great to sip on before dinner or to unwind with after a meal

White Wines

Prince Edward County pick: Exultet Estates Cru X White Light VQA 2011 $22.95 – The County’s newest winery making impressive wines – including this blend.

Niagara-on-the-Lake pick:  Lailey Vineyard Unoaked Chardonnay VQA 2001 $15 – a crowd pleasing dry white wine that is perfect to sip on while the BBQ warms up.

Rosé Wines

Prince Edward County pick: Karlo Estates Frontenac Gris Rosé VQA 2011 $18 – reminds me of watermelon – its colour, aromas & tastes!

Niagara-on-the-Lake pick: Pondview Cabernet Franc Rosé VQA 2011 $15 – a stunning pink colour with refreshing aromas & flavours of juicy strawberries

Red Wines

Prince Edward County pick: Kient-He Winery P2 VQA 2010 $25 – a unique blend of Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier grapes that makes a medium bodied red wine perfect for burgers or steak.

Niagara-on-the-Lake pick: Riverview Cellars ‘Old Red Tractor’ Syrah VQA 2010 $29.95 – a BIG bold red wine with a fantastic story on the label that will be a great conversation starter!

 

Raise a glass to a summer filled with delicious Ontario wines!

Cheers,

Debbie
