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 month 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. — 2 months ago
Brought this wine for a kiwi Pinot noir night with some friends. Funny enough, they bought the same wine, but 2016 version. Elegant , smooth with round finish. Cherry, blackberry along with an earthiness. The 2016 was bigger on the nose, while the 2014 was more subtle with a similar flavour profile. The 2014 won the night, but it was close. It didn't say so on the bottle, but being from New Zealand it was likely that the grapes were crushed by hobbits. — 2 months ago
Jammy with raspberry, spices and black currant. Easy drinking wine. It is from 3 separate areas of the Okanagan Valley, which is different than many of the single vineyard wines that Meyer produces. This is my first bottle my wine club shipment, so it really tastes like..... victory. — 2 months 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! — 2 months ago
