HENRY OF PELHAM ESTATE

RIESLING 2013

6

VQA Short Hills Bench, Niagara Escarpment

TASTING NOTE: Perfect balance. Satisfyingly dry

yet with a hint of riesling’s insistent sweetness, this

is light and fresh, with smiling green apple and lime

lifted by tart acidity. It’s a grand match for grilled

pork chops or a cheese board and should cellar well

for five to seven years. Score:

REIF ESTATE RESERVE

GEWURZTRAMINER 2015

6

VQA Niagara River, Niagara-on-the-Lake

TASTING NOTE: A floral, zesty Niagara Gewurztra-

miner with attractive aromas of white peach, baking

spice and lychee on the palate. Very Alsatian in style

and elegance. Finishes with rosewater notes. Pair with

Asian dishes. Gewürztraminer food pairings: baked

ham, panko crusted chicken, light flavoured seafood

dishes, pork tenderloin. Score:

ROSEWOOD SÜSSRESERVE

RIESLING 2016

6

VQA Niagara Escarpment

TASTING NOTE: “Süssreserve” refers to the

winemaking technique of blending unfermented

juice back into the fermented wine to impart

freshness and a bit of sweetness. This wine is quite

pretty and floral, with honey, apple and melon aromas

and a vibrant, lemony flavour. Pour with veggie sushi,

shrimp ceviche or wine-braised cabbage rolls stuffed

with rice and bacon. (Vintages panel, April 2017)

RIESLING 2014

6

BC VQA Okanagan Valley

TASTING NOTE: This Riesling from Dirty Laundry

shamelessly airs its notions of citrus, apple, peach,

flowers and beeswax. The winery team suggests

pairing it with ahi tuna fish tacos or pulled pork.

FOREIGN AFFAIR DREAM 2013

6

VQA Niagara Peninsula

TASTING NOTE: A blend of Merlot, Cabernet

Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot with

15% of the fruit dried appassimento style for

3-4 months and then aged in three types of oak for

26 months. It’s rich and layered on the nose with

dark cherry, thick raspberry, cassis, cocoa and spice.

It’s complex on the palate, big in fact, with concen-

trated red fruits, fine tannins, licorice, plums and

length through the finish. Score:

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

VQA Niagara Lakeshore

TASTING NOTE: Here’s an intensely perfumed, earthy

Cabernet Sauvignon showing layers of cherry, plum,

bell pepper and smoky herbs. Nicely balanced from

start to finish. Pour it with stuffed peppers brimming

with ground meat or quinoa, sautéed mushrooms and

aged cheddar cheese. (Vintages panel, March 2017)
