Sweet berry wine!


Recommended Posts

Let's hear what you like to drink. Feel free to let us know about the bargains, the splurges... whatever impresses you.

I'll start.

My buddy brought over a bottle of Reilley's "Old Bushvine" Grenache- 2005 from Clare Valley Aus.

This shit was killer. It goes for $32 at the LCBO, which is a steal for straight grenache. Not cheap, but it drinks like a wine worth twice as much. Open it up an hour or two (or four) before you drink it- or better yet decant. Absolutely awesome. Taste is similar to an amarone.

I just picked up my third bottle in less then a week (yes, I'm a boozer). Sweet Berry Wine!!!!

Grenache is a grape. It doesn't produce a ton of fruit so it is usually grown in small batches. It is often used as a blend- like in Cote de Rhone.

I like it and thought you might as well.

I know we have had the occasional discussion about wine on here, but seeing as the LCBO is always adding new stuff, I figured an updated conversation might be in order.

I'm guessing not everyone is as down with the vino as I am. Oh well.
