Cooper’s Hawk Pinot Noir Rosé 2013 Review

Tasting Notes:
At Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards we take pride in the success and quality of our award winning Rosé wines. Here we offer a second style that will appeal to those who prefer a dry wine.

We process our Rosé in the Blanc de Nuits style, where red grapes are pressed early to a natural pink colour. We chose to dedicate high quality, hand harvested Pinot Noir to making a world class Rosé unlike any other. You be the judge.

Enjoy chilled with crusty bread, light cheeses and cured meats for an extra enjoyable experience. Quality Rosé doesn’t get any finer than this!

Pelee Island Night Glider Gamay Noir Zweigelt 2013 Review

Fri 3, Apr. 15

4.00 overall score

Full Bodied & Fruity Red Wine

This is a unique Pelee Island wine. Gamy Noir is a French grape variety that is solely responsible for the distinctive wines of Beaujolais, while Zweigelt, an Austrian / Hungarian grape variety, is Austria’s most popular red grape.

Deep in colour. The appealing fruitless of Gamay Noir and the distinct spiciness of Zweigelt grapes is blended to yield this full bodied red. Its boysenberry and black current flavours combine with a fine tannic finish and crisp acidity.

BLEND:
48% Ganay Noir
43% Zweigelt
9% Cabernet Franc

ALCOHOL: 12.5%

RESIDUAL SUGAR: 4.8 g/l
SUGAR CODE: (0) Extra Dry

PAIR IT WITH:
Grilled beef and steak or mild to medium flavoured cheeses.

SERVED: chilled
