2017 Delphine Rosé

$16.95
Niagara

Blended from Cabernet Franc and “just a little” Pinot Noir, Wescott’s “Delphine” rosés have always been known for their elegance and flavour.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Aromatic, dry, and supple, there are notes of strawberries and orange, along with some bracing lemony acidity. The bright pink of the wine is a visual treat, and it looks every bit as mouth watering as it tastes!

Suggested Food Pairing: Serve this with semi-soft cheeses like Gruyère and Havarti.

Cellaring: Drink now or cellar up to 3 years.

2013 Red Trillium Ripasso

$16.95
Niagara

Always one of the most popular wines among Savvy customers, the Red Trillium Ripasso is made by “re-passing” a blend of Pinot Noir & Cabernet Sauvignon wine over the freshly dried grape skins leftover from their Appassimento wine. It remains in contact with the pomace of the Appassimento for about ten days at which time a second fermentation occurs.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Fruity and rich, with black cherries, dried figs, and black currants. There’s a little mint and cedar here, too, with medium tannins and acid. This full-bodied wine is a crowd-pleaser.

Suggested Food Pairing: This will work well with Italian cuisine, BBQ ribs, or even just a juicy hamburger.

Cellaring: Drink now or cellar up to 3 years.

Another example of winning wild fermentation, this Pinot Noir was aged in French oak barrels with no new oak for nine months. 

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Don’t get fooled by the light colour here: this is a full-flavoured wine! Earthy, with notes of red licorice, sour cherry, and red cherries, it’s going to surprise you with it’s power and elegance. Medium acidity and medium tannins show off this brilliant Pinot Noir.

Trail Estate Winery: Unfiltered Chardonnay

2015 Unfiltered Chardonnay

$21.95
Prince Edward County

Trail does a lot of “wild ferments”, which means they allow the natural yeasts already found on the berries to ferment the wine, as opposed to killing the wild yeast with sulfur and then introducing engineered yeast, as most wineries do. Wild ferments are risky but often bring unexpected – and unexpectedly wonderful – elements to the wine. This is a splendid example! Aged for 11 months in French oak, 40% of it new, the juice was also allowed to oxidize slightly.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: There are fruity notes of peach, lemon, and apricot here, overlaid with coconut, butter, and vanilla. There’s also a hint of sherry, lending the wine an unusual but very interesting complexity. This is a dry Chardonnay, with medium acidity, and is sure to please the Chard lovers in your crowd.

Suggested Food Pairing: Pair this with Coquille St. Jacques for a fancy dinner, or with chicken and waffles for fun!

Cellaring: Drink now or cellar up to 2 years.

2013 Pinot Noir

$21.95
Niagara

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: With a very light cherry colour, this Pinot Noir has an interesting array of flavours: candied fruit, red licorice, light tobacco, and sour cherry. It’s tart and dry with a long licorice finish.

Suggested Food Pairing: I love Pinot Noir with mushroom dishes – try it with a mushroom ragu or stuffed mushroom hors d’oeuvres.

Cellaring: Drink now or within 3 years.

2013 Chardonnay

$18.95
Niagara

This stellar Chardonnay won the Platinum Medal at the 2017 National Wine Awards. The Niagara Peninsula fruit, mainly from the Beamsville area, is barrel fermented for 16 months in French oak, 30% new wood.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: The first aroma is smoke, followed quickly by vanilla and coconut. This wine is not shy! Peach and apricot round out the palate, with surprisingly high acidity for all its creaminess. We can see why it won an award – it really is terrific.

Suggested Food Pairing: Try this with grilled salmon. The smokiness of the wine will match the fish perfectly, while the acidity will enhance the flavours.

Cellaring: Drink now or within 2 years.
