2016 Unoaked Chardonnay, Old Vines

The Lenko family planted these vines on the Beamsville Bench in 1959, making them some of the oldest Chardonnay vines in North America.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: The low yield fruit has produced intense flavours of apricot, steely minerals, and green apple, with medium acidity to pull it all together. Lovely!

2016 Sauvignon Blanc

$20.00
Prince Edward County

A lot of wineries claim to make New Zealand-style Sauvignon Blanc, but here’s one that deserves the title. Winemaker Mike Traynor studied winemaking in NZ, and brought back the lessons he learned: don’t over-ripen, don’t expose to air, and embrace the grapes’ own flavours. It works!  

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: This is classic Sauv Blanc: beautiful canned green beans and lemon leveraged with County minerality. There’s lots of lime acidity and a long lemon-lime finish. 

Suggested Food Pairing: Deliciously well-chilled on a hot day.

2017 Laundry Vineyard Riesling

$22.75

Ontario makes some of the best Riesling in the world. It grows well in our wine regions and is delicious with chicken or seafood.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Southbrook’s slightly off-dry 2017 Riesling balances its crisp tartness with a satisfying drop sweetness. This sweet-sour framework surrounds the big tropical fruit and green apple flavours.

Suggested Food Pairing: Southbrook pairs with light seafood, such as ceviche!

2017 Redfoot Vineyard Viognier

$19.95

We don’t see enough Viognier in Ontario. It grows well here, with distinctive tropical fruit flavours that are refreshing and delicious.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Thank goodness Redstone is making this lovely Viognier, which showcases the passionfruit, pineapple, and sweet melon notes the grape is known for. There’s a hint of sweet spice, too, but don’t worry – this is a dry wine with medium acidity to balance the fruit.
