Blind Wine Tasting Event

October 13, 2016

Last night, upon recommendations from our last event, we changed up our Monthly Sold Out Ladies Night by having a Wine, Cheese & Charcuterie Tasting - with a Twist... We had a 'Blind Wine Tasting' between 2 reds and 2 whites. Here are the details of each for your reference:




Palacio Quemado - Reserva 2010

D.O. Ribera del Guadiana

Old World - Spanish

Colour - red cherry

Body/Structure - full

Nose - "complex with cassis and blackberry aromas and an elegant toasted and spicy background”

Palate - “Rounded and very well balance with a fresh and long finish."

Pairing - Specific. Drink with grilled sirloin, aged cheese, roasted beef and lamb.




Cloud Nine - Willamette Valley 2013

Pinot Noir

New World - Oregon

Colour - brilliant ruby

Body/Structure - medium

Nose - “bright red and black cherries, with a framework of cola nut and ripe dark fruit. 

Palate - “Tannins are soft and the finish is grateful."

Pairing - Very versatile. Drink with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. Creamy causes, spicy seasonings 






Drouhin Vaudon - Reserve de Vaudon 2014


Old World - French

Colour - Brilliant yellow colour, with hints of green.

Body/Structure - “Soft, round, well balanced."

Nose - “Typical Chablis nose, where aromas of citrus (lemon) fern and even salty sensations predominate."

Palate - “Vigorous and lively, but in a soft mode. A lot of finesse and balance."

Pairing - Very specific. Best with fish or shellfish.




Joie Farm - Pure Grape 2015


New World - Naramata, Okanagan Valley

Colour - Warm Mellow Yellow.

Body/Structure - medium-bodied and slightly off-dry with mouthwatering acidity.

Nose - “Intensely aromatic varietal, both floral and fruity. Which is why we call our Muscat, The Pure Grape."

Palate - "Cleansing and elegant, with a lingering aftertaste of lemon and mineral."

Pairing - “The muscat is delicious as an aperitif with salty olives, prosciutto, pecorino cheese or with a fish, at it’s freshest as a in a Scallop tartare or spot prawn ceviche."




Stay tuned for next month's Ladies Night scheduled for Tuesday November 8th. The evening will be a how to demonstration with recipes of 'Canapés & Cocktails'. Just in time for the upcoming Holiday Season.
