MOST RECENT

@tantaluswine produces incredibly pure grapes biodynamically(not certified)..... they also happened to make the most incredible honey........ may have gotten confiscated. What did I do.... well I ran away really fast and ate 1/4 of it and gave the rest away.

Thanks to @quailsgate for a great vineyard experience, tasting and lunch. Nice to finally see botrytis in person! #wine #noblerot #dessertwine #optima #okanagan #wsetdiploma

Dive deep to the treasure that you seek 🧜🏻‍♀️

If you don’t want to spend 1500+ on a magnum of Schrader’s Old Sparky To Kalon 2010 Cabernet, their Schrader Double Diamond from Oak Knolls district is probably retailing for $75 if you can find it. Absolutely killer wine. But I won’t turn down the chance to include both! Oh, and a Jerobaum of 2000 BV Georges de Latour Cabernet and a flight of Williams Selyem pinots from 2007-2011 from all different vineyards and some three sticks James Vineyard Pinot noir. Holy lineup! #wsetdiploma #sanfrancisco #winecellar #sommelier #wine #cabernet #tokalon #schrader #cabernetsauvignon #pinotnoir #redwine #foodandbeverage #culinary #californiawine

It takes 2-3 years of preparation to plant a new vineyard site. Thanks to David Paterson, winemaker and general manager from @tantaluswine for your insights. Soil preparation includes cover crops (mustard in this case) and elimination of frost pockets. Drip irrigation going in. Planting next spring to a field blend of mixed-clone Pinot Noir, own-rooted, propagated from their own cuttings! #wine #okanagan #wsetdiploma #fieldtrip

We enjoyed this delicious Pomerol 2004 from Chateau Vieux Maillet. I love it when you open a 14 year old wine and it is still fresh. Red fruits, spice, cedar, smoke, savoury, leather as you would expect from a wine this old. Most enjoyable with our roast beef #pomerol#redwine#chateauvieuxmaillet #redwine#frenchwine#rightbank#merlot#winegeek #winelover#instawine#winetasting #wsetdiploma #wsetstudy #bordeauxwine #makesmehappy

Tasting @tantaluswine #riesling at three different stages: 1) off the vine. Fascinating the difference in flavours and acidity depending on how far up the slope and left vs right side of the row. 2) Juice in the process of settling, three days post pressing. 3) Finished product, with focused fruit and vibrant acidity, just off-dry. Thanks David, for your time! #wine #kelowna #bcwine #fieldtrip #wsetdiploma

🍂🐟Halibut & Oaked Chardonnay🐟🍂

Another weekend of fine company and fine wine has passed. The temperature is continuing to drop in Canada 🇨🇦 which means I needed a nice way to warm up🧣!

For me, nothing more warms up the soul then a comforting meal and fantastic wine! On my plate is a roasted halibut - which is a beautiful medium bodied, white flaky fish🎣! The halibut lays atop of a carrot and miso purée, shaved and roasted carrots, brown butter and a lovely parsley oil drizzly - if this doesn’t scream fall harvest and deliciousness then I don’t know what does🤤! Now... the crucial part, what wine to pair with this stunner of a meal? In the world of food and wine pairings, you’re faced with one of two decisions: a congruent or complimentary pairing🤔? A congruent pairing is when a wine and the food share many similarities; whereas, a complimentary pairing offers fewer similarities between the two. Both work, but it’s up to you to choose🤷🏻‍♂️!

I chose a complimentary pairing and went with an Oaked Chardonnay👌🏼! The reason this is complimentary is because the buttery flavours and creamy mouthfeel of the wine compliments the inherent butteriness of the fish and the way it was prepared! Where it injected new complimentary elements was the Oaked Chardonnay’s notes of baking spices, white stone fruit and soft citrus to cut the savouriness of the carrot and miso purée and brown butter! Does this scream #pourrecommendations or what😍?

This is another example of #whatiloveaboutwine! The world of food and wine pairings is fascinating and never ceases to amaze me! Enough from me #pourwinos I want to hear from! How was your wine weekend? Are you someone who prefers a complimentary or congruent food and wine pairing? What about seafood, what was your most memorable pairing? What wine would you of added? The microphone 🎤 is yours... I’m all ears👂🏼?!?!!
