3-6 Sat Nov 24 Township 7 Winery Tasting with Debbie

Debbie from Township 7 will be here pouring:

2008 Rose
Nothing says festive dining or al fresco entertaining like a crisp bottle of Rosé. This one has superb strawberry and spice aromatics. Just enough tannin provides a nice accompaniment with grilled light meats and party food. We enjoy ours with endive stuffed with goat cheese and walnuts. $15.99

2010 Sauvignon Blanc
A fresh, crisp blast of summer with cut grass, lime and pear in the aromas. Classic style with a palate that is lush and zesty with ­flavours of citrus, kiwi and peach. Pairs well with mild cheeses, seared scallops and cilantro, other seafood, or lemon glazed chicken breast. $17.49

2011 Unoaked Chardonnay
Chardonnay, one of the world’s most versatile varietals shines as a singular expression. Grapes from the renowned Sundial vineyard in Oliver are chosen for their rich, spicy flavours and unique clonal variations (clones 76 and 96). This unoaked version, never seeing an oak barrel, retains clean but lush fruit flavours that show citrus and pastry notes in the nose followed by apple, peach and fresh fig on the palate. Pairs well with light cuisine and creamy cheeses. $17.99

2009 Syrah
The peppery notes of our Syrah come through in concert with cherry and a hint of pipe tobacco. The palate expresses Bing cherry and cola. Barrel aged for 22 months in French and American oak with less than 400 cases produced. Ideal with traditional French dishes such as cassoulet and duck confit. Unfiltered $24.99

2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
A bold and racy year for Cabernet Sauvignon. The cold winter was followed by an outstanding growing season. The fruit exhibited round rich flavours at picking amid near-perfect harvest conditions. Aged in French and American oak for 26 months. Soft dried bergamot herb and berries on the nose. Cherry pie and secondary flavours of caramel, cedar and leather on the palate. Unfiltered. Good structure. Will drink well through 2018. A great accompaniment to filet mignon or lamb. $25.99
