Spring surprisingly smells like strawberry cotton candy, without being sweet. It also smells like, well, plums! The ripest ones though - we get them freshly picked out of Niagara once each year. No pasteurized purée here, just real fruit.
The flavour is tart art — crunchy acidity meets plum stone tannins and a chewy-ness that feels adjacent to our favourite Provençal rosés.
Ingredients: Apples, golden plums, red plums, blue plums. Gluten free. Wild fermented, zero residual sugar, vegan friendly
Yarran Wines was awarded the 2021 Dark Horse of the Year by Halliday Wine Companion. Yarran is a family-owned and operated winery located in Yenda, New South Wales. Yenda is part of the Riverina region, a registered Australian Geographical Indication (AGI). The AGI has a long tradition for winemaking that dates back to 1913 and is renowned for producing world-class wines of exceptional quality. Over the past 3 years Sam has focused on improving the quality of the estate-grown grapes, moving to organic conversion. The warm and dry climate of the Yenda region is the ideal environment for ripening healthy Shiraz. Yarran’s Shiraz marries the deep fruit tones of a classic Australian varietal with a bright jolt of acid. Lifted plum and fruitcake aromas with spicy chocolate and oak on the palate. This is a lush wine with layers of deep violet fruit. Eminently drinkable, exceptional value, completely satisfying. When cooking with charcoal, this Shiraz should be at your table.Volume: 750mlCountry: AustraliaVarietal: Syrah & Syrah BlendsABV:14.2%

3XP (Trois-X-P) - Pearce | Predhomme | Pender - is a small-production Niagara Peninsula Chardonnay collaboration between négociants Nicholas Pearce & Will Predhomme with vigneron Paul Pender. This wild ferment Chardonnay is 100% certified organic & biodynamic and is produced with minimal intervention. We strive to show the delicacy, tension, & purity of expression of Ontario-grown Chardonnay with this small-production collaboration. Brilliant straw colour, youthful, light-intensity aromas of white peach, green apple, citrus, with delicate integrated subtle lees. Bright lemony acidity on the palate, round mouthfeel, & refreshing. A clean, fresh, & distinctly Ontarian-style Chardonnay. Ideas for pairing 3XP? This rich Chardonnay calls for all shades of seafood and fish: spaghetti with clams and tons of parsley, halibut, crab cakes... or even pork tenderloin! It's also wonderful as an apéro wine.Location: CanadaVariety: ChardonnayVolume: 750mlABV: 12.5%
It has a brilliant medium purple colour in the glass. On the nose, it's all about fresh ripe red & black fruit: cherry, strawberry, wild raspberry; with hints of intense spice, it also has a granite minerality. On the palate it is light-bodied, with a vibrant acid and grippy though delicate tannins. It intermingles with surprisingly powerful fruit & spice; punching above its weight in flavour. It is very balanced with low alcohol.
This light red pairs with all manner of dishes: from barbecue meats to grilled salmon and veggies, to spicy dishes.
