I was one of the lucky few who were invited to attend a small tasting welcoming the 2013 Pinot Grigio – a bouquet of peach, honey, banana and flowers give way to fresh apple, mineral and spice on the refreshing palate – LCBO #404939.
And the 2013 Cabernet Merlot – a delicious fruit forward, nicely balanced wine with soft and well integrated black cherry, cassis and hints of licorice – LCBO #404947.
This winery makes one of the most aromatic Vidal Icewines that I have ever sampled. Not yet available @LCBO , so take a take a trip out to the winery to give it a try.
Burnt Ship Bay Estate Winery Ltd. is a family-owned business founded by Luciano Puglisi and Marcel Morgenstern in 2013. The winery focuses on producing wines made from estate grown grapes in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. The winery drew its name from a little bay in the Upper Niagara River where in 1759, during the Seven Years’ War, it became the final resting place for some treasure-laden French ships.
Clever branding. Easy drinking. Affordable.
