The Fall/Winter Wine Care Pack features six wines specially chosen for cooler weather, a Summerhill branded high quality "Sommelier Knife" corkscrew and a link to Summerhill's "Eclectic Good Vibes" Spotify playlist.
The included wines are:
Keter - Served to world leaders by Justin Trudeau the last time Canada hosted the G7 conference, Keter is a crowning blend of varieties across multiple vintages. Full-bodied with fresh plum and blackberry on the nose, the palate is silky and delicate with a long finish. A great wine for any dinner, particularly suited to roasted meats.
2019 Organic Cabernet Sauvignon - A classic wine in a New World style. Originally made popular grown in the gravel of Bordeaux, our vines are planted in the sandy soil of Osoyoos, Canada's fully arid desert region. Big, bold and dry with notes of cassis, black fruit and sage. Perfect pairing for grilled meats or any rich, intense winter dish.
2019 Heritage Series Organic Baco Noir - A crowd-pleasing favourite, our Baco Noir is rich, velvety and smokey. With big flavour, depth, and body, this wine is amazing on its own in front of the fire and even better with pizza or grass-fed hamburgers.
2019 Organic Merlot - A perfectly balanced and lush red wine featuring juicy notes of red plum, raspberry and licorice, alongside old-world charm and complexity. This wine is a mouthful of fruit and flavour. Pair with anything from the grill.
2019 Organic Syrah - Medium bodied with fresh red cherry and just a bit of spice and leather, this Syrah was grown in the hot desert region of Osoyoos. Pair with a rack of lamb or your favourite charcuterie board.
2020 Ehrenfelser - Summerhill founder Stephen Cipes calls Ehrenfelser "the white wine for red wine drinkers." This profoundly aromatic drop delivers an explosion of flavour. With one sip you will almost be able to see ripe fresh apricots, gooseberries, and guavas dancing behind your closed eyelids. (The wine is so beautiful closing your eyes to savour the experience may be a reflexive response.) There is also a lovely, slightly drying waxiness on the finish that brings elegance and tension to the palate. Many people have told us over the years that this was the bottle that made them fall in love with wine, giving them their first "a-ha" moment. The good news is that even as their palates have developed, this wine always offers them something special to come back for.
