The recent release of the Wild Oak Whisky from the folks at Sixty-Six Gilead Distillery is a rare find. Distilled in the traditional Bourbon style by Matt McCann, aged in barrels crafted from Missouri oak by Pete Bradford, this big boy beverage presents itself at 47% alcohol… The small-batch production by Sixty-Six Gilead Distillery will appeal to Whisky aficionados both for quality and rarity.
Broken Stone Winery’s, 2013 Chardonnay … the aromas are reminiscent of a French, tarte aux poires; the palate is layered with almonds, manuka honey, greengage plums, and crème brûlée — and there is a refreshingly clean, lightly acidic, finish. Tim is to be congratulated on coaxing such a delightful wine from their young vines. This is the real deal.
Trail Estate Winery… Their portfolio offers a choice of four well-crafted wines. I was especially drawn to their blend of Riesling and Gewürztraminer … This winery is well worth a visit! You will find the family’s pride and passion for their wines to be infectious.
Great new releases happening in The County… Hillier Creek Estates rosé … you will want to stock up on this great wine to be sure you have it all summer…. Sugarbush Vineyards … Gewürztraminer … has a devoted following and is apparently flying off the shelves… Chardonnay from Broken Stone Winery … will be available at the winery… Keint-He Winery’s 2013 “Voyageur” Riesling is a delight.
Three Dog Winery Pinot Grigio … is a lovely wine, displaying a beautiful bouquet of delicately spiced watermelon and mandarin orange. The palate is caressed with honeydew and pink grapefruit. It is a well-balanced wine, suitable as a companion for a wide range of food.
Rosehall Run “Just One Rose”… A sublime blend of Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir, this rosé will transport you to the sunny shores of St. Tropez. You can sip this Tavel-style wine alone, or match it with your favourite barbecue. The aromas are the best of both varietals: with laid-back flavours of red fruits, a little spice, and a balanced acidity that teases the palate.
