Villa Bacchus Winery
IN THIS MONTH’S THREE-PACK:
Villa Bacchus Winery kicks off the new year with a wine box of outstanding value featuring a sumptuous gewürztraminer, opulent cabernet franc and lush Bordeaux-style blend.
A perfume of rose and tropical fruit greets the nose while flavours of lychee, pineapple, papaya, citrus and a dash of clove emerge on the palate. Expertly crafted, this dry white has an enchanting balance, depth and elegance. Lovely with sushi or Thai food.
2017 Cabernet Franc
VQA Niagara Lakeshore
Earning its high value, this wine has an elegant sophistication. Red and black fruit abound with subtle layers of graphite and pencil shavings, earth and anise. Exquisite mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Pair with slow cooked osso buco.
2016 Rosso Grande
VQA Niagara Peninsula
Petit Verdot takes centre stage in this Bordeaux-style red blend. Strawberry and rhubarb deepen into spice, stone, tobacco and smoke on the palate. Beautifully balanced and complex with tempered tannins, it’s a perfect partner with barbecued meats and garlic-based sides.
