Wine Bought in Naramata Bench, B.C.

Posted by Airdrie Store - Pat Morrison - full access, October 27th, 2011 | 0 Comments

These are the wines we stuffed in our suitcases to bring back from Naramata Bench!   (Hint - Paul enjoys his Laphroaig Scotch & I save the cylinder style containers it comes in - they are perfect for transporting wine safely in a suitcase for the plane ride!)

Left to Right -- La Frenz  2010 Riesling - a lovely slightly off-dry riesling - notes of green apple, honey & lime.  This was one of our favourite wineries on the Naramata Bench!

Therapy  Freudian Sip ( off - dry white )  2010 - multiple aromatic varieties, unoaked - notes of lemon, mango and nectarines.

Therapy Freud's Ego ( red ) 2007   Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc blend.  Barrel matured with distinctive chocolate, vanilla & blackcurrents.

Kettle Valley - Naramata Bench Reserve 2009 - Extra 4079.   This wine  draws its name as a tribute to the last train, "Extra 4079", to climb the summit of Coquihalla Pass on the Kettle Valley Railway on November 23, 1959.   The blend of grapes come from the Hanoch Vineyard and Oh Vineyard in Naramata.   The grapes were hand picked on October 26, 2009.   Total production = 350 cases.

Black Widow - Single Vineyard Merlot 2009.   Grapes were hand picked October 1 to 3, 2009.   Fermented 2 weeks on the skins then barrel aged in French oak for 17 months.   Total production = 175 cases.

Elephant Island - Cassis 2010.   Blackberry based "black gold" fortified wine.   Paul remarked it "took him back to his childhood picking ( & eating ! ) blackberries in the field in southern Ontario!'     The nose was amazing & the intense flavour of blackberries was incredible!

Now, where did Paul put that corkscrew????
