On Saturday September 30th, and Saturday October 14th, Southbrook Vineyards want you to come Celebrate The Harvest!
These two special days are your opportunity to deepen the Southbrook experience, and gain a glimpse of the aging potential of our current wines, as owner Bill Redelmeier will be offering a tasting of rare library wines at 12:30pm and 2:30pm each day. Pre-booking is required for the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the property and then taste and buy a selection of wines all over 10 years of age. This tasting of wines, accompanied by a glass of your favourite served with a platter of cheese and charcuterie, will delight the true enthusiast for $49.95.
If you aren’t able to join for a tasting, Southbrook will be offering complimentary site tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on both days.
Sign up for complimentary site tours by calling 1-888-581-1581 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
To coincide with the celebrations, on Saturday, September 30, Southbrook will be releasing the latest vintage of our signature Poetica Red, the 2013. Winemaker Ann Sperling selected those lots that best exemplify the balance of grace, depth and complexity of our estate red wines, and extended the aging both in barrel and bottle. This harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot is starting to blossom now, and will develop for decades in your cellar.
After a tasting in London UK this spring, Richard Hemming MW of JancisRobinson.com ranked it among the top 3 Canadian reds, and wrote:
“Perhaps less immediately engaging on the nose than their Witness Block, but then the palate has wonderful crunchy fruit and long refreshing acidity on the palate. A subtle medicinal note gives interest to the very persistent finish. Drink 2018 / 2018 17+/20.”
With only 100 cases produced of our top red wine from this significant vintage, the 2013 Poetica Red will be released at $69.95. Hemming’s top rated white wine of the tasting was our 2013 Poetica Chardonnay, which is also available for $49.95.
Southbrook is also bringing the 2013 Estate ‘Allier’ Chardonnay out of the library and back to the retail store! Only a few cases remain of this beautiful Biodynamic Chardonnay and will not be on the shelves for long.
Please note that the 2013 Poetica Red and 2013 Estate ‘Allier’ Chardonnay will be released in Southbrook’ retail store and online store for purchase on Saturday, September 30 at 10am EST.
