2018 Team Canada Red
This classic take on a Cabernet Merlot blend pours a medium ruby, hinting at the red fruit focused nature of this wine. There’s sour cherry, cranberry, red plum, and red currant on the nose with layers of toast, black pepper, smoke, blackberry leaf and earth along with an herbal quality which adds complexity. The palate has similar flavours to the nose with a creamy texture and very smooth tannins, making for a red wine which is perfectly suited for early enjoyment.
With every bottle, a $1 donation will be directly contributed to the Canadian Olympic Foundation and its efforts to support Canadian athletes.
This is an easy drinking and versatile wine which can be enjoyed by itself or paired with a variety of dishes. Since the wine has medium levels of acidity and tannins, it is ideal with salty and acidic dishes or those that are more savoury or spicy. This means that pizzas, pastas, hamburgers or anything off the grill will make for an ideal pairing. Great for finger foods while watching your favourite athlete compete!
