Featherstone Estate Red Tail Merlot 2013

Featherstone Estate Red Tail Merlot 2013

The last bottle from this Niagara  vintage and it’s very good. Lots of blackberry, dark plum with some cedary complexity and vanilla. It’s a prime example of why you should have a few bottles of #wine, and Niagara #wine is no exception, to see how it evolves with time. You sometimes need to hold onto wine for a few years to see how it ends up! #barrie #downtownbarrie#alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford #newmarket #simcoecountyliving#livinginsimcoecounty Featherstone Estate Winery

Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Rose Reserve 2017

Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Rose Reserve 2017

Famille Perrin is a large scale operation, but they care about quality and make some good value wines like this one. The grapes for this #wine are sourced from around Orange and they produce a good to very good Provençal style of Rose. It very pale with watermelon, light cherry, rose petal, some herbal spiciness, and a medium body. Try it with foods featuring olives like a Muffuletta sandwich. #barrie#downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford #newmarket#simcoecountyliving #livinginsimcoecounty

Le Chevaliere Viognier 2016

Le Chevaliere Viognier 2016

Viognier’s home is in the Northern Rhone, but this #wine is from further south in the Pays D’Oc. It still has some of the grape’s typical spice, apricot fruit, and just a touch of honey, but a little less body than in its more northern incarnation. Still a great #winepairing for some chili marinated BBQ chicken. #barrie #downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford#newmarket #simcoecountyliving #livinginsimcoecounty
