He says: We’re actually looking forward to the rest of the new portfolio from this winery.
She says: Lovely, rich fruit and strong grassy notes, all rounded beautifully by a hint of oak.
He says: Well done, Foxtrot Vineyards. Massively impressed.
She says: The best BC Chardonnay I have tasted to date.
He says: On the palate, the key for me is the red fruit doesn’t come out swinging, and there’s a beautiful balance of citrus notes without being tart.
She says: An easy drinking, summer sipper, although it may be a little too simple for some.
He says: This would be better served marketed as a Beaujolais/Pinot Noir blend to be drunk at room temperature rather than chilled.
She says: For those of you that loved cherry-flavoured cough syrup growing up, this is the wine for you. It’s definitely not for me.
We attended a tasting last month where the highlight of the night was a 7-year vertical of one of BC’s most celebrated red blends: Osoyoos Larose’s Le Grand Vin. Unfortunately, the tasting ended up being an anti-climactic car wreck of unbalanced wines that left us regretting the roughly $350 worth of wine on the table before us.
She says: …had a much better balance on the flavour profile with juicy black fruit and hints of mineral, chocolate and almost a touch of saltiness.
He says: Highly recommended at this price point!
She says: Whilst this was my favourite wine of the tasting, it didn’t ‘wow’ me like it has on occasions past.
He says: There is depth and elegance to this wine, but it has yet to reach the complexity we find in Old World favorites, which is no surprise.
