Oh, Canada, I remember a day when your wine looked like 50 shades of varnish and tasted almost as bad. We should all be happy that times have changed.
Canada Day is an excellent opportunity to drink to the flag and with family being such a big part of a long weekend, I can’t think of a better place to start than Sibling Rivalry from Ontario’s Henry of Pelham.
The 2010 VQA Red ($13.95 – $15.99) is a soothing blend of merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon with plump berry fruit and upfront oak that’s made for grilled meats. Meanwhile, the 2010 VQA White ($13.95 – $15.99) is a hip mix of riesling, chardonnay and gewürztraminer that’s a sexy, seafood friendly combo of citrus and flowing aromatics.
