A bit of a blunted Pinot noir, and not my favourite from the Okanagan, but still enjoyable. Raspberry, plum, cherry and some vanilla. Mild tannins and a bit of spice on the finish. The LFNG team put on an awesome event in Vancouver to taste some of their recent releases. Great time! — a year ago
Another hit from the Meyer wine club shipment. Citrus, apple and stoney. Buttery with bright acidity. All round super tasty chardonnay from a great producer. Tip of the hat to Joannie Rochette. I remember her getting the bronze in Vancouver. What a champ! — a year ago
A clean, crisp and refreshing with some apple on the nose. Chasselas is the main grape from the Swiss Lavaux region between Lausanne and Montreux. It is the best wine to add to a moitie/moitie fondue (gruyere/vacherin). Lavaux is spectacular, with terraced vineyards overlooking Lac Leman. Go check it out if you get the chance. If you can't make it, this bottle from Corcelettes is the next best thing, as it shows the owners Swiss roots. — a year ago
Clos du Soleil spring wine club shipment arrived and starts with a bang. Rich, full bodied wine, with tannins that give a nice finish. Black cherry, raspberry and spices. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot with Cabernet Franc and Malbec making up the rest. Great value and a great winery to visit if you are going through Keremeos. — a year ago
