    Smith & Wilson 1812 Salute (Viognier 2010) Review

    1812 Salute Viognier
    During the War of 1812, the Chatham-Kent area was the scene of many hard fought battles. The forces of the British Empire and the Indian Confederation allies fought together to try and stop the advancement of the United States Army. The print “Battle of the Thames” by Edward William Clay, 1799-1857, is featured on the front label.

    This special commemorative wine “1812 Salute” pays tribute to those on both sides, who fought so valiantly for their causes and recognizes their brave contribution as part of our local history.

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    Orchard meets garden in a glass! Tantalizing aromas of peaches and gardenias are balanced with a lush mouth feel and crisp finish.

    Pleasant Pairings: Viognier offers intriguing food matches. Spicy Asian fare, grilled seafood and Emmentaler, Colby or Edam cheeses are all happy matches.

      Winemaker’s Notes:
      Reminiscent of summer ripe melons and pears. Just off-dry, but still crisp. Serve: Chilled as a sipper or with everyday fare – chicken, beef, pork or veggies.

        A light blend of Gamay, Chambourcin and Merlot, this youthful wine is the perfect sip for almost any occasion or taste. Ruby is the “friendly” wine – a crowd pleaser.

        Pleasant Pairings: Ruby is versatile at the table. Good choices would be light tomato dishes, pizza and grilled chicken. This is the bottle to pack in the picnic basket – a great lunch wine.
