  1. $44.80

    Château Des Charmes

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Veal roasted


    This flagship red wine, Equuleus is a classically styled blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. But Château des Charmes don’t make it every year. To be considered an “Equuleus year” each of the three grape varieties must have achieved at least 23.5º Brix at harvest. The 2012 vintage was awarded the Ontario Wine Awards “Red Wine of the Year” in 2017. Aged for 16 months in 1/3 new French oak, 2/3 in non-new French oak then the blend rests in French oak casks for several months. The result is rich and complex with flavours of cassis and dark chocolate. Equuleus is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for at least another 5-10 years.

    Château Des Charmes

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 375 ml

    Foie gras, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    We pick our Icewine at -10°C or colder to make sure every ounce of water left in the grapes is completely frozen. We don’t want to dilute this incredible wine in any way. Once in the Harvest Room we press the frozen bunches of grapes at up to 100 psi just to extract a few trickles of the thick and sweet juice. Because the juice is so cold and sweet we have to use aggressive yeast to start and maintain fermentation, which can take several months. The wine is sweet but is finely balanced with fruit flavours and a strong backbone of acidity. Riesling is one of the great white grape varieties with excellent aging potential. This wine is a terrific example. - Winemaker's notes

  3. Château Des Charmes

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 375 ml

    Chocolate cake, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    Cabernet has acclimatized extremely well to the Niagara Peninsula so it is a good candidate to make into Icewine. We tend these blocks of Cabernet like the others carefully managing the yields and of course keeping the bunches clean by removing any berries at the first signs of breakdown. Then we wait. And in late January, when the temperature dropped to -13ºC we hand-harvested the bunches by the light of the moon.
