I go through the fields with valarie and learn some techniques and conditions for a good beginning of the season. With the right conditions anyone can expect a good batch of wine.
Thanks Smokie Ridge Vineyard for letting me use your beautiful vines.
It was named after the village near the Richeliu River in southern Quebec where Gilles Benoit of Vignoble des Pins first made high-quality wine from the variety. Where you find Sabrevois, you’ll often find St Croix.
A small to medium size black grape. Deep ruby red, aromas and complex flavours of black currant, dark cherry, pepper, and spice (look for hints of cinnamon). Barrel aging creates a full-bodied red. Great as a rose with lots going on on the nose. Keeps for a long time in your cellar.
Serve with foods made with tomatoes - bruschetta, stone fired pizza, rich pasta dishes. Also try bacon, caramelized onions, mushroom dishes, dark meats or wild game.
