As harvest approaches, I can't help but think of the gift of local wine. These both are at different end of the spectrum but speak of their respective terrior.
Chateau des Charmes - Equuleus - Paul Bosc Vineyard - 2007, Niagara, ON $24.95
Spicy blackberry, red flowers, sweet tobacco, slight licorice. Velvety and lush in the mouth.
Peninsula Ridge - Wismer Vineyards - Sauvignon Blanc - 2010, Niagara, ON $18.95
Grassy, gooseberry, citrus. Follows through, very crisp on palate. Good length.
I am not an expert, just a discerning wine lover or amateur de vin (as the French say), but everyone has a different palate, likes and dislikes so it must be understood that any of my recommendations are personal. I just hope that you find them useful or at the very least - interesting. I also hope you enjoy my photos. It is more fun sharing then keeping them backed up on a hard drive.
