VQA Wines Menu
G. Marquis Pinot Grigio – $8.25/gl, $23.95/½L, $39.95/btl
"Medium-bodied. Clean apple, pear and tropical fruit notes in an easy drinking, dry yet exceptionally food friendly style."
Cave Spring Sauvignon Blanc – $8.50/gl, 25.45/½L, $37.95/btl
"This wine originates from selected vineyards throughout the Niagara Peninsula where a combination of elevation, limestone-clay soils and moderating on-shore breezes from Lake Ontario have produced a wine true to the terroir of our region. Vinified in stainless steel, it exhibits the crisp fruit and racy acidity typical of this classic cool-climate variety.
The nose offers aromas of green melon, cut grass and Granny Smith apple, with hints of musk in behind. The palate is quite rich and weighty, with flavours of ripe apple up front. Fleshy and supple in the middle, the wine shows intense ruby grapefuit and lemon grass flavours that persist long onto the finish. Open knit yet juicy in style, this warm vintage is enticing for its combination of ripeness and freshness."
Tawse 2013 Chardonnay VQA – $10.75/gl, $32.50/½L, $45.95/btl
"The 2013 Tawse Chardonnay is a blend from carefully sourced hand-harvested fruit from select vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula. As such, this balanced wine is a wonderful expression of both terroir and vintage as well as a great value! Perfectly balanced, it is a very versatile and food-friendly wine. Aromas of tropical fruit, cantaloupe, citrus and a hint of oak spice are expressive on the nose and continue through to the palate."
G. Marquis Cabernet Sauvignon – $8.95/gl, $26.75/½L, $40.50/btl
"Medium/full-bodied. Red and black curra cranberry and cedar aromas underpinne with spice and smoke hints. Soft tannins a long finish make it an ideal food red.
A great partner to spicy back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, grilled kebabs or piri-piri seasoned roast chicken. Enjoy with grilled veggies too."
Red House Co. Cabernet Shiraz – $8.50/gl, $25.45/½L, $37.95/btl
"The who cares what everyone is ordering, I want red tonight please 'em all go to. Imagine a friend who shows up to build your deck and then whips up a Beef Wellington after? Yah, handy."
Southbrook Cabernet Franc – $12.95/gl, $32.50/½L, $53.50/btl
"Ann Sperling has expertly crafted this gorgeous expression of the 2016 vintage. The delight is in the details, with gentle handling, fermentation in oak vats and aging in small oak barrel preserving and enhancing the pure fruit quality. Rich in texture and flavour, for immediate pleasure or future development in your cellar. Perfect for wintry stews or mixed grills all through the year."
Tawse Cabernet Merlot 2012 VQA – $10.75/gl, $32.50/½L, $45.95/btl
"This delicious wine is aged in french oak. This blend of cabernet franc, merlot and cabernet Sauvignon displays enticing notes of plum, blackberry and a hint of mint."
