Cave Spring

Estate Beamsville Bench Riesling 2019

Very chemical aroma of wet pebbles and a bushel of hay. Dry grasses and herbs on the palate. Tart zingy finish. We drank it with kale and spinach risotto. The tart citrus cut through the rich buttery risotto beautifully which some of us loved but I found too tart. — 3 months ago

Quails' Gate

Okanagan Valley Old Vines Foch 2020

A Marechal Foch from BC’s Okanagan Valley. Marechol Foch is a hybrid grape that is particularly resistant to cold which led to wide range planting in Canada. BUT generally as a cheap plonk wine to be made in quantity.

This winery here, however, is considered the one that has mastered Marechal Foch. And this wine is SO good. Big jammy blackberry flavour for days.
