DogRidge Vineyards Tasting - ENCORE! Due to overwhelming interest and demand at their last FWR tasting, Le Sommelier Inc., Exclusive Wine Agents brought in Fred Howard (winemaker and owner) of DogRidge Vineyards in for another decadent afternoon tasting of fine South Australian wine (McLaren Vale).
DogRidge is known for wines that express outstanding depth of colour, aromatic elegance and richness of flavour. Winner of the best medium to full-bodied red wine in 2004 and 2005 at the Bloor-Yorkville Sante Wine Festival, the DogRidge DV7 Shiraz is made from 65 year old vines in extremely limited quantities (600-700 cases).
This was a rare opportunity to taste some of DogRidge's finest single vineyard wines, including their old vine Shiraz, old vine Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay (grafted on 100 year-old Grenache rootstock!) and selections of their old vine Grenache, Petit Verdot and Merlot.
Members brought in Dogridge bottles they acquired after the last tasting for Fred to sign.
Thanks Fred, you are welcomed at the Reserve anytime!
