It's that time of year; winter's here, the solstice is near. December's collection features local Ontario wines that will pair well with whichever type of holiday meal you share.
Our Pinot Noir and Viognier are light-bodied wines that pair well with the classic turkey focused dinners. A Canadian classic, the Trius Red is a medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon blend that will complement roasts and spiced dishes.
Stay warm and stay safe this holiday season, drink well.
Fun little viognier from Niagara Lakeshore fruit just a bridge and a stone's throw away from the east-west line. Good phenolics, mildly bitter and very textural over assuaging achievements. Trusted and structured. A real intent, portents of viognier locally raised. Drink date: 2019-2022. Score - 89. (Michael Godel, winealign.com, Dec. 31, 2019)View on LCBO.com
