BC WINE OF THE WEEK

 

MOONCURSER

Border Vines    2015

You would think that after having really nailed this blend in the first place they couldn’t make it any better ? Well.. they did!

Typically this Meritage has been Merlot driven with a long silky feel in the mouth . Year after year it has been a reliable wine.  But this vintage has dispensed with the Merlot and Petit Verdot .   It has a wonderful ripe nose of Black Currants, with a deep Ruby color.  A hint of Spice , Mint and green beans gives it a Silky mouthfeel.  With the beefy structure of the Cabernet ,the juiciness of the Malbec and the Earthy quality of the Carmenere it gets my vote  again !

What are you waiting for ?

BC Wine of the Week !

Wild Goose

Stoney Slope Riesling 2016

I particularly Love Riesling at this time of year! It just seems like the perfect Wine for Fall.  All that Apricot, Honey and Sweetness that is so comforting .

Riesling to me is the Queen Dowager of Grapes . She is wise, old and tolerant.

This Riesling is for you Dry Riesling Lovers!Nose of Lavender, Hint of Petrol, . It has a fresh acidity, with Citrus and Stonefruit  and that yummy honey finish on the palate . I matched this with my turkey dinner with fig and walnut stuffing and VOILA!

A Winner..
