Reserve

Gustave Lorentz Reserve Sylvaner 2019

Alace A.C., France
10 days ago

Diana Becevello scored this wine: 90/100

The Sylvaner grape makes crisp, clean, food-friendly wines. This crisp, extra dry Gustave Lorentz Réserve Sylvaner 2019 has a light gold colour with perfumed aromas of peach, pear, and apple. It is full-bodied with flavours of apple, peach, apricot, and pear with some minerality on the palate. The perfect summer wine. We paired it with heritage pork chops and roasted cabbage and fennel.

This 100% Pinot Noir has an intense ruby red color with scents of berries, cherries, and herbal notes. On the palate, this wine is smooth and silky with flavours of cherry, herbs, and earthy notes. This Pinot Noir paired perfectly with our roasted chicken dinner.

Alto Adige Trentino Doc, Italy
10 days ago

This sparkling wine has fresh and fruity scents and flavours of zesty lemon, tart apple, and wildflowers with a delicate fragrance of brioche. It is crisp on the palate and well balanced with hints of baked bread.

Gold Edition Syrtis

Volarevic Gold Edition Syrtis Plavac Mali 2016

Dalmatia, Croatia
14 days ago

Diana Becevello scored this wine: 94/100

This Volarevic Plavac Mali Gold has complex aromas of plum, berries, pepper, dried fruit, and Mediterranean herbs. The flavours that come through for me are plum, berry, pepper, leather, chocolate, and a smooth smokey vanilla finish. It is well balanced with its smooth tannins, complex body, and soft acidity. My 90% dark chocolate paired perfectly with this wine. I would recommend decanting this at least one hour before drinking to allow the wine to breathe and bring out all the wine's flavours.

Field Hand

Redtail Vineyards Field Hand Pinot Noir 2020

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
24 days ago

Diana Becevello scored this wine: 92/100

2020 FIELD HAND PINOT NOIR The first word that comes to mind after the first sip of this @redtailvineyardspec Field Hand Pinot Noir is “Juicy”. A single vineyard, small-batch Pinot Noir with nothing added or taken away from harvest to bottle. Aged in stainless steel with no oak contact and bottled young under a crown cap to preserve freshness. This Pinot is vibrant and juicy with fresh cherries, raspberries, and minerals on the nose. Bursting with fruit flavours of cherry, raspberry, red currants on the palate with light tannins and a tangy, minerally, smooth long finish. If you are looking for a summer red then this is it.
