IN THIS MONTH’S THREE-PACK:
A trendy orange wine, pinot noir and merlot from Niagara’s leading organic and biodynamic winery, Southbrook Vineyards.
2019 Skin Fermented Vidal
From foot trodden grapes to wild fermentation with seeds and skins, this orange wine is as natural as it gets. Citrus, floral and savoury notes are supported by racy acidity and solid structure. Pair with pistachio-crusted black cod and olive tapenade.
2017 Laundry Vineyard Pinot Noir
VQA Lincoln Lakeshore
Delight in this delicate, well-balanced cool climate pinot. Plummy red fruit leads to deeper notes of earth, black tea and spice. The perfect partner for crispy Peking duck and pulled pork.
2017 Triomphe Merlot
VQA Niagara Peninsula
Barrel-aged for just five months, this merlot-gamay blend is gorgeously lush with dark fruit, dark chocolate and earthy tones. An impressive wine, silky in texture. Italian-style sausages with fennel or black bean veggie burgers will be a delectable pairing.
