Southbrook Vineyards Triomphe Chardonnay 2012

With a nod to Canada Day my wine pick hails from a winery of great distinction, known not only for their superb, award winning wines but also for their innovation and commitment to our land, our soils, our environment.  Southbrook Vineyards located in Niagara-on-the-Lake is Canada’s first winery to have its vineyard certified as a biodynamic winery, taking organic practices one step further. Southbrook’s philosophy is practiced throughout, from the biodynamic, organic vineyard into the winery. Credos to Southbrook!

Still feeling the love for Chardonnay My Wine pick is Southbrook Vineyards Triomphe Chardonnay 2012

Vintages: 172338 Price: $22.95

Perfect for our barbecues, this Chardonnay delivers big and pure! With tropical aromas that include, one of my faves, pineapple, with notes of apple and pear, a touch of vanilla and oak spice. Rich with good acidity and lively on the palate. a delicious Chardonnay, medium bodied and perfect partner for whatever I put on the grill, particularly my sister’s recipe for grilled chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese soaked in fresh herbs from my garden!

La Crema Pinot Noir Los Carneros

Although known as “the heart-break grape” this Pinot Noir  is heart warming, mouth watering and simply delish! Ooh how I love this wine! The rich velvety texture, the  the ripe cherry fruit, earthy spice, creaminess and lingering finish.

This appellation is known for producing California’s most elegant Pinot Noirs.

The Carneros appellation which straddles the county lines of both Napa and Sonoma is known for producing some of California’s most elegant Pinot Noirs. The appellation is situated not far from the shores of the San PabloBay. One of the key factors is the constant wind acting as a relentless cooling force. Keeping the heat in check and the availability of ample acids required for well balanced and lively wines. 


 For this vintage, the winemaker’s  notes tell us that the grapes were harvested primarily from one of their favorite Los Carneros estate Pinot Noir blocks – Ahmann – which is found just two miles from the bay on the Napa side of Los Carneros. The cooling influence of the wine and the fog allows the grapes ample time on the vine to develop the full concentrated flavours and velvety texture we so enjoy with this Pinot Noir.
