2020 Goldie Red
Our inaugural Goldie Red blend pulls you in instantly with its dark cherry colour, robed in purple. It shouts out with candy-like aromas of dark cherry skin and ripe strawberry, followed with ever-evolving earthy and savoury scents of pepper, allspice, forest bark, cedar, tobacco and leather, perfumed with the most delicate scent of Alberta Wild Rose. After a fruit explosion in your mouth, it is well balanced between bright fruit and earthy notes. The flavour journey begins with juicy berry candies and an early cherry-like crunch. The medium-weight palate is both rustic and smooth with a nice acidity that carries through the dark chocolate finish, lightly dusted with cinnamon and spice.
Food pairings include all things duck, game meats, pork tenderloin; terrines; beef/bison/steak carpaccio and tartare; chargrilled blackened salmon with grilled asparagus, Brussel sprouts or fiddleheads; mixed mushroom ragout with goats cheese. For something a little more relaxed, try a prosciutto and fig pizza or some delicious cheese: medium Gouda, aged cheddar and Quebec-born delicacies. Chill it slightly for a deliciously refreshing summer red!
