CIPES Blanc de Blanc from Summerhill 2010

This week I was fortunate to get a Bottle of this Bubbly masterpiece and taste it!

( Thanks Mike Romand @ Okanagan estate wine Shop on 4th)

IT is 100% Chardonnay done in the classic method and it did not disappoint !

It‘s bright color was accentuated by the bright appley crisp taste.  Lots of Mousse and lots of taste! Aromas of pear and floral notes leads us to a taste of fresh baked bread, Butter and a Dry and satisfying finish!

Why not pick up a bottle today for the next celebration !

BLACK SAGE VINEYARDS

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

This vintage is showing some intensity and concentrated flavors which I am guessing will change with some cellaring))

Showing an Intense Ruby color the wine  reveals  aromas of Black Cherry. Asparagus and Pepper.

On the palate the feel is velvety,  a bright acidity , notes of sage herb, Black berry with a rich finish .

Full bodied  with character.

B.C Wine pick of the week !

cedar-chard-20165

Cedar Creek Chardonnay 2015

Cedar Creek has often been my go to wines as I have found them to be very consistent.

This year’s Chardonnay is return to a less oaky style and more minerality,

Great Acidity, Baked apples, nice minerality. Citrus and pineapples notes on the palate with a slight hint of oak. It has being placed In a ‘Foudre’ a large French oak barrel holding 2250 liters. The Oak influence is subtle giving it elegant and fruity notes.

Pairing with this wine screams Seafood and Creamy seafood dishes all the way
