Saturday Wine Tasting

At the Tasting Counter in the North End Main Store

We have wines from around the world and some great buys come out of South Africa. 

2017 Painted Wolf Chenin Blanc, $11.99
This wine has a bright aroma and flavour. Soft, peach, lemon
and guava with an underlying savoury minerality and a whisper
of wood. The wine has a great texture and a layered finish with
bright acidity keeping it fresh and vibrant. 

2017 Painted Wolf Pinotage, $11.99
Medium to full bodied with a smorgasbord of bright red and black summer berries, savoury spice and toasty wood flavours, leading to a nicely poised finish.

2014 Chamonix Rouge, $14.99
This Bordeaux blend has a generous bouquet that suggests blackcurrant, cedar with scents reminiscent of red berries, spices and vanilla. The wine is amply structured; full, round and smooth on the palate with rich fruit and length of flavor. An elegant wine that can mature with time in the bottle.

2017 Klein Contantia Sauv Blanc, $20.00
Bright in appearance with fresh flavours of grapefruit and gooseberry on the nose. A full bodied palate that is crisp and well rounded, a zesty acidity with a minerality specific to the  terroir. The wine concludes with long and refreshing finish.
