#4 The Dinner Collection



#5 – The Dinner Collection

Three perfect dinner wines to pair with a delicious meal. Chardonnay 2012, Dream 2013 & Merlot 2009 will arrive tucked inside an elegant Foreign Affair Winery three bottle box.

Chardonnay 2012

The grapes were harvested in mid-September with 10% of the fruit set aside to be dried using the traditional appassimento method. The wine was fermented and aged for 14 months in French oak barrels before blending and bottling.

Our 2012 Chardonnay has a medium golden yellow colour. Aromas on the nose include layers of butterscotch, toffee, ripe pineapple, crème brulée, vanilla bean, and subtle oak notes. The palate is smooth, intense, and balanced with ripe flavours of apple, mango, pineapple, butter toffee, caramel, and subtle creamy oak notes lead to a long, lingering plush finish.

Dream 2013

This vintage is a blend of Merlot (37%), Cabernet Sauvignon (37%), Cabernet Franc (23%), and Petit Verdot (3%).  The grapes were small batch processed and fermented. The wine was aged for 26 months in select French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels and the final blend is made up of 15% appassimento wine (15% of the grapes were dried after picking).  Decant this wine if enjoying now or cellar for an additional 5-8 years.

This wine shows off flavours of ripe cherry, dark plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, oak and tobacco, which all lead to a long, lingering finish. The big flavours of this wine are well balanced. complex and the tannins are luxuriously smooth.

Merlot 2009

The grapes were hand harvested and sorted in October with 40% of the grapes set aside to dry in the appassimento method. After fermentation, the wine was then aged in French oak for 18 months.

Intensely fruity and juicy on the nose, this Merlot captures raspberry, plum, cherry cola and spice notes. The palate shows black cherry, olive, vanilla and cocoa flavours with a definite appassimento influence that gives the impression of sweetness but finishes dry. Exceptional weight and substance combine with supple and soft tannins creating a smooth texture leading to a long, lingering finish.
