    Château Des Charmes

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    Deep ruby, the fruit for this inaugural vintage was hand-sorted on the estate, aged 10 months in French oak. It showcases an alluring nose of bright red berries and ripe black cherry, cedar, mineral, dried herbs and spice. Dry, tangy and spicy, it’s medium-full bodied, blending a lively texture with ripe tannin, chocolate-coated coffee bean and a touch of vanilla mingling with cassis, black cherry and raspberry. Well structured, offering good complexity and balance, this wine finishes dry and long. It pairs well with roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.

    “Deep garnet. Fairly heady floral and fruity nose. The palate offers up lovely weight and quite intense, distinctive aromas. A well-made wine that would work with all local regional dishes.”

    2019 Pink Twisted Rosé 

    In typical Twisted style we've blended together Pinot Noir, Gamay, Riesling & Gewurztraminer for a fruit-forward, yet fairly dry Rosé.  Fresh field berries with punchy freshness, makes this the perfect sipper for your front porch, back patio or balcony, wherever you get the best sunshine.

    2018 The Rusty Shed Chardonnay

    "A light golden hue, it offers a cornucopia of aromas with baking spice, vanilla and bits of biscuit and caramel to the fore. It dazzles the palate with a gusher of smooth texture, medium-full body and plenty of palate flavours—red apple, creme caramel, piquant spice, oaky notes and tart grapefruit tang on the back palate and lengthy aftertaste. This has good bones and should improve even by the time it’s released; it needs only time to meld—and it’s very good value." 91 points - WineCurrent, Dec 2019

    2017 Twisted White

    "Plump and musky, it offers up flavours of apricot, peach and baked apple, like a mixed-fruit country pie. A well-crafted blend that combines Riesling’s zip with Gewurztraminer’s aromatics and Chardonnay’s flesh." 90 Points - Beppi Crosariol - The Globe and Mail, Jan 2019

     

    "The price-quality balance tips well in your favour. Rosewater, mixed spice, green apple and lime aromas abound on the nose of this gorgeous Riesling/Gewurztraminer/Chardonnay blend. It bathes the palate medium bodied, creamy textured with a flavour-packed mouthful of grilled pineapple, Key lime pie and lemon curd. Palate replays dominate the lingering dry and crisp, lip-smacking finish. Sip on its own or pour with an array of dishes—roast chicken, spicy Asian or white pizza and more." 90 points - WineCurrent, Dec 2019

    Cave Spring Vineyard’s Dolomite tier of wines is produced in limited quantities from the winery’s eponymous vineyard, perched high on the gentle slopes of the Niagara Escarpment’s Beamsville Bench. The line-up includes the ‘core four’ vinifera varieties that best suit Cave Spring Vineyard’s terroir, and that Cave Spring has focused on since its inception in 1986, including Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. A sparkling wine made entirely from Chardonnay rounds out the selection. Available exclusively through the winery, the Dolomite collection is a favorite of Ontario wine consumers and professionals as an authentic, high value expression of Niagara’s cool-climate terroir, with the wines frequently finding their way onto the lists of many of the provinces most innovative restaurants.

     

     Tasting Notes:

     

    3 x 2018 Riesling Dolomite
    Aromas of yellow plum, pink grapefruit and anise lead the way, with hints of ginger spice and gun flint in behind. The palate is dry, medium bodied and rich in feel, with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours underpinned by a firm, stony texture and elegant, well integrated seam of acidity. The finish is intense and mouthwatering, replete with white peach, nectarine, cantaloupe and a hint of spice.

     

    Alc/Vol 11.0%
    RS 8.0 g/L

     

    3 x 2018 Chardonnay Dolomite
    The nose is quite perfumed, with aromas of orange blossom, honeycomb, ginger and cinnamon at the fore and notes of Bosc pear, cantaloupe and flint in behind. Dry and medium bodied, the palate is succulent yet round up front, with a saline and mineral in the middle, with a firm, stony texture. This mineral core draws into a crisp, juicy finish of ripe blood orange along with notes of allspice and wet stone.

     

    Alc/Vol 12.5%
    RS <2.0 g/L

     

    3 x 2018 Pinot Noir Dolomite
    The nose is highly perfumed with lifted red berry and black cherry fruit alongside nuances of cedar and spice. The palate is medium bodied with a rounded, juicy attack followed by cranberry and red cherry flavours along with a distinct note of tea in the middle. Fine-grained tannins culminate at this point, tapering down on the finish alongside succulent Damson plum fruit and cedar-spice complexity.

     

    Alc/Vol 12.5%
    RS <2.0 g/L

     

    3 x 2017 Cabernet Franc Dolomite
    A dense, saturated nose of macerating blackberry, cassis and plum, with notes of blacktop, crushed stone and mint in behind. The palate displays a core of succulent yet brooding, dark berry fruit that melds with firm, fine-grained tannins toward the middle. A seam of red currant fruit brightens the wine, carrying into a powerful yet refined finish with notes of tar, cracked pepper and mineral.

    Solid Ground

    California (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Salad, White Meat


    A perfect example of Lodi terroir, this Pinot expresses big fruit and ample richness for the varietal. The nose pops with lots of floral tones, cherry, raspberry and hints of blackberry. The blackberry notes, from the blended Zinfandel, gives this wine its distinct Lodi character. The palate is soft and round, with good weight for the varietal, yet still maintains the gentle acidity in the mid-palate that is distinctly Pinot. Pairs well with Pulled Pork Dishes, Pasta and Roasted Chicken. > Learn More

    WHAT'S IN THE BOX? 

     

    3 bottles x 2019 Rosé
    3 bottles x 2018 Sauvignon Blanc
    3 bottles x 2017 Pinot Noir

    3 bottles x 2017 Cuvée Winona VQA Niagara Peninsula

     

    2019 Rosé 

    "Our house style of rose is bright and refreshing with a pale colour and great fruit. The nose has vibrant red fruits such as, sour cherry, raspberry, watermelon with complimentary savoury notes with hints of floral orange blossom. The palate supports the nose with rich texture and a delicate finish. This bright, refreshing Rose was built for warm summer days and good company!

     

    2018 Sauvignon Blanc

    "A brand new release of the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc: picked relatively early, 18 hours on skins before pressing, fermentation in stainless steel, with a portion aged in neutral barrels for four months and the remainder in stainless steel. The wine is pale straw in the glass, crisp and fresh, with hints of grass, white flowers, lemon-lime and yellow melon. It's dry, with bright acidity, and add a whisper of white grapefruit and white peach on the palate. A charming wine, delicate and nuanced, far from the heavy vegetal side of the grape — perhaps moving towards a uniquely Niagara expression of the variety?" 90 points - Tim Appelt, WineDiscovery, April 2019

     

    2017 Pinot Noir

    "From de-classification choices made in the winery, the NP pinot noir is a blend of Lowrey and Senchuk vineyard fruit that didn’t make it into the single-vineyard bottles. Falls somewhere not precisely calculated in the 12-18 months barrel age time for fruit sweet and structured, elevated into the ether tonal zone and ready to please, if you please. Take some time and realize the dream, of pinot noir made the right way from an agglomeration out of all the correct places and spaces." 90 points - Michael Godel, Winealign, March 2019 (2016 Vintage)

     

    2017 Cuvée Winona

    This blended wine over-delivers massively for the price. The nose is pronounced with dried cranberries, lavender, licorice, cocoa, cedar, and blueberries that the palate replicates and follows with raspberry, vanilla, and rich tannins. It is perfectly drinkable now but will age well over the next 5-8 years. Great with burgers, cured meat, and hard cheese.

    Hunters Estate

    12 x 750 ml

    Vegetables, White Meat


    This elegant fruit forward pinot has ripe plum and cherry characteristics dominating the nose with hints of wild raspberry coming through underneath. A light earthiness ties these aromas all together and continues onto the palate along with a subtle black pepper spice and wood shavings. This is a mid-weight pinot with well integrated tannins carrying through to an extended finish. > Learn More

    Stephane Aviron

    Beaujolais (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "Lurid ruby. Ripe raspberry, cherry liqueur and candied flowers on the perfumed, spice-accented nose. Supple, sweet and broad on the palate, offering pliant red fruit and spicecake flavors that deepen as the wine stretches out. In a plush, seamless style, delivering strong fruity thrust and a hint of mocha on the long, gently tannic finish."

    90 Points - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media, Nov 2017

    "Drinking really well now, more open and fruity than the Fleurie, showing a touch of old wood. Fine structure, fine-grained tannins. An explosion of fruit with a streak of granite."

    90 points - John Szabo MS, WineAlign, Nov 2019

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best red wine, along with the best red wine to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of red wines. To name some we have, dry red wine, sweet red wine, full bodied red wine, medium bodied red wine, light red wine, tannic red wine and structured red wine. There is a litany of words used to describe red wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of red wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce red wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top red wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular red wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for red wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good red wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best, along with the best values, in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

When it comes to red wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking red wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different red wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your red wine and the taste of your red wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best red wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.
