Triple Portfolio Tasting - Creekside, Mike Weir & Willow Heights - A triple header! Three closely allied wineries Creekside Estate Winery, Mike Weir Estate Winery and Willow Heights Estate Winery all arrive at the Fine Wine Reserve for an exclusive tasting.
The focus was on their small batch wines - wines that can be quite hard-to-get, and available in limited quantities. This was a great opportunity to try all these wines - all in one spot.
Veteran winemakers Craig McDonald and Rob Powers were on hand to answer your questions.
The line-up included:
2006 Reserve Chardonnay
2005 Reserve ‘Tresette’ Red
2006 Un-Oaked Chardonnay
2005 Pinot Noir
2006 Sauvignon Blanc
2006 Butler’s Grant Vineyard Riesling
2004 Butler’s Grant Reserve Chardonnay
2004 Reserve Shiraz.
The last wine on this list was awarded “The Fine Wine Reserve Best Shiraz” award at the 2007 Ontario Wine Awards.
Also on display, two new wines launched only the day before from the “Great One”. Gretzky’s Estate Winery, a new venture being developed in partnership with Creekside.
Thanks Craig, for organizing this tasting (and the after party!). A great way to end the tasting event season at FWR and start enjoying the summer!
