B.C Wine Pick of the week!

Petales 2013

 

Osoyoos Larose    Petales D’osoyoos 2013

Owned by the Taillant Group this winery is located in the south Okanagan overlooking Lake Osoyoos in this ‘Pocket Desert.’   In the tradition of French Bordeaux the Grapes are hand-picked with only the best grapes making the cut . I have to say that I am always quite happy to open a bottle of this elegant wine. It never disappoints with its’ lovely ripe red berry and floral nose . This year’s Vintage for me was characterized by Ripe plums, Strawberry, youthful tannins, some dry earthy and woodsy tones and finished with a bit of pepper ,cacao and Coffee for a nasty great finish  !

Merlot: 82%,Cabernet-Sauvignon: 14%,Malbec: 2,5%,Petit Verdot: 1%,Cabernet-Franc: 0,5%

A great bottle of wine without the Crazy price

$22 at LCB, Okanagan Estate wine shop and Some VQA stores in B.C

B.C Wine of the week !

Pentage Winery

Sauvignon Blanc 2014

At Last Spring’s visit to this Boutique style Winery I sat down with Paul and Julie and soaked in the majestic views overlooking  Skaha Lake with a glass of their 2014 Sauvignon Blanc.  What a great story Paul had to tell me about how he got into wine and the wine business..  Check out my Video below .The highlights were of course tasting the wines but also a visit to the Cave where Paul cellars the Wine and the magic happens !

This is a classic elegant French style Sauvignon blanc. My family comes from the Loire Valley in France and you bet I love a great Sauvignon Blanc . The subtle aromas include Citrus, light grassyness, stonefruit  which stimulates the back palate!

Best paired with Grilled Scallops or a mango salad

$20 at the Winery !

4/5 Value and taste !
