CedarCreek Estate Winery Tasting - Hobbs & Co Wine Merchants features CedarCreeks’ signature wines called “Platinum Reserve”
From the left coast, CedarCreek is one of Canada’s elite producers, and recognized as Canada’s Winery of the Year in 2002 by Wine Access Magazine.
In the 1992 vintage, CedarCreek produced a Merlot of such promise that the Okanagan Wine Festival created an unprecedented platinum award for it. That inspired the winery's premium program, to label its most exceptional wines as Platinum Reserve.
Handcrafted in limited quantity and sought after among collectors, these wines are made from low-yielding vineyard blocks, hand-selected from the very best barrels.
Gordon Fitzpatrick, President of cedarCreek walked us through the following wines:
2002 Platinum Reserve Merlot
2002 Platinum Reserve Meritage
2002 Platinum Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
2003 Platinum Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
2003 Estate Select Merlot
Only such an exceptional winery would dare to put their wine into a blind tasting with a Premier Cru Bordeaux. Our members were ready for this Bordeaux Challenge - and I'm happy to report they were suitably impressed.
Nice wines Gordon. Thanks Margaret!
