Wine with Erik! Christmas Edition 2018

Hey everyone!

It’s almost Christmas time!!! Time for another great wine selection!!

Dr. Loosen Riesling 2017, Mosel, Germany – $14.95
This wine has always been one of my favourite rieslings becuase of its amazing value. but be fast! this wine fly’s off the shelf! The wine bright, clear and has aromas of lemon, peach, and apricot. On the palette it has a soft sweetness wish mouthwatering acidity to balance it out which is what makes it a classic Mosel Valley riesling. Enjoy it on its own or with a spicy Thai chicken.

Foreign Affair Dream 2015, Niagara, Canada – $29.95
So I know I try to keep the wines I chose at a reasonable price but I really want to put this wine on the table for you guys because this winery if doing some awesome things here in Canada. This winery puts their grapes through the appassimento process which means the dry the grapes out on racks for a few months befor they crush and press them. By doing this it creates a less diluted flavour and a rich wine. They use this in lots of Italian styles such as Amarone and they wanted to bring that style here to Canada. Okay no lets talk about the wine. The wine Is dark and has complex aromas of blackberries, vanilla, black cherries, figs, leather, and a sweet spice. On the palette the wine has silky smooth tannins layered beautifully with a nice acidity. Enjoy it this year but for a great experience save it for 2 years. Enjoy on its own or with some strong cheese or bbq steak.
