st-hub-riels2014

St. Hubertus Riesling 2014

And the winner is …  Winner of the LIeutenant Governor’s award this Year

Here it is … my promise to deliver a review of this vintage …I am hoping to get an invite into the Gerber vineyard sometime soon  to do some ample reviewing and PROPER wine tasting  ..

So let’s go to the wineOn sniffing the nose I get an intense Zesty Citrus and less to the forefront the petrol. Is it a good Sign? Let’s taste on then shall we? The palate is overcome with some sweetness only to be leveled by the crisp lemony /green apple acidity . As it ages it will be interesting to see if it develops a little honey flavors.

How about a little Grilled Salmon salad with your Riesling ?

4.5/5

Stag’s Hollow

Renaissance Pinot Noir 2011

I had a  delightful recent visit to Stag’s Hollow with Winemaker Dwight sick and Owner Larry Gerelus .Needless to say Dwight was all business with a deep knowledge of the vines and Passion for what he does!   Larry is always full of info and a real hoot !  the winery is located near Okanagan Falls. As of late they have done some experimentaio with New varietals in the Okanagan so there is always something exciting Brewing over there !

I opened  Renaissance Pinot Noir with my Maple Pepper trout for Dinner last night and what a fine Pairing it was  !

For those who don’t know ‘Renaissance ‘is their top tier wines

B.C Wine Pick of the week !

gray monk

Gray Monk Pinot Gris 2015

It’s been a crazy few weeks  with lots of work and busting out to Lillouet for  a Fort Berens weekend tasting  (coming up soon ) and I have not put pen to paper for 2 weeks

Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a Hot September so I thought I would continue with a few more whites. I am still drinking Chards and Sauvignon blanc…

We recently received a case of 2015 Pinot Gris from Gray monk  . This honestly is one  of the more popular brands as Gray Monk is a pillar in B.C wine making  for the past 25 years

Here is an example of textbook Pinot Gris BC style .

The wine pours in my glass with a Salmon Pink hue. Aromatic notes of pear and undernotes of Grapefruit start this Fresh Pinot Gris. It has a creamy texture  with some Sweetness on the palate with highlight of peach  and Grapefruit to finish off dry

Buy yourself a bottle ….Simply too easy to drink

4/5 Value and Taste
