I was thrilled to see Prince Edward County Wines at the recent Sip and Savor event. I did a week long trip to the county and enjoyed myself thoroughly. I would go back in a heart beat! The whites tend to be more minerally than Niagara and the reds are softer. Tannins are hard to come by. This winery was previously known as Carmella Estates and had the longest white (a Riesling) I’ve ever tasted!
This wine is pale ruby in color with a rustic nose. On the mid pallet the wine spot on varietal pinot albeit a milder one. Some lovely red fruits strawberry and raspberry come through. The wine is on the lighter side of medium on the finish with light tannins and nice finish. This is an easy sipping wine or quite food friendly. I would give this an 88-89. Unfortunately not available in the LCBO, $16.95 at the winery. A good deal for a pinot!
From the winery’s web site:
Our 100% estate-grown grapes were aged for 15 months in French Oak barrels. Medium-bodied wine with aromas of black cherries, raspberries, cigar box and herbs. This Pinot Noir has a smooth juicy palate. Matches well with mushroom risotto or roast duck.
