Portfolio Tasting, Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery - We were pleased to have Peninsula Ridge return this year for their annual Portfolio Tasting.
Under the capable direction of winemaker Jean-Pierre Colas (Ontario Winemaker of the Year in 2006), we’re expecting good things again this year.
Prior to joining Peninsula, Jean-Pierre was head winemaker at the notable Chablis House, Domaine Laroche. While at Laroche, Jean Pierre was honoured with Wine Spectator Magazine’s 1998 White Wine of the Year award for his 1996 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos. Jean-Pierre will be with us at the tasting to answer your questions.
Wines featured include his:
2006 Fume Blanc
2007 AJ Lepp Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
2006 Syrah Reserve
The AJ Lepp SB is the first of three single vineyard SB’s to be launched this year. The Gewurtztraminer is Peninsula’s very first attempt at the big G. We’re also very fortunate to be able to try their 2002 Vintner’s Private Reserve Merlot - something that rarely shows up at tastings due to its $100 price tag.
