Ranger Wine invites you to discover one of the most exciting wineries in the South Okanagan Valley, Moon Curser Vineyards, and their stunning 2018 Touriga Nacional available in the June 2021 LCBO Classics Catalogue.
Moon Curser Vineyards
Moon Curser Vineyards is a boutique, family-owned winery on the East Bench of Osoyoos, BC, a South Okanagan border town known for its hot summers, lakeside fun and vineyards. Moon Curser has been in operation since 2004, when Chris and Beata Tolley purchased an old orchard in need of replanting, and set about converting it into what is now the Moon Curser Home Vineyard block, winery and tasting room.
The Moon Curser name pays tribute to the gold smuggling history of Osoyoos. The Moon Curser wines, however, break from tradition – the winery’s focus has always been on making premium wines from old-world grape varieties not previously planted in the Okanagan such as Tannat, Dolcetto and Touriga Nacional. These varieties have not historically been a part of the South Okanagan viticulture, but thrive in the distinctive terroir of the Osoyoos East Bench and continue to deliver unique, world class interpretations of these wines.
Moon Curser was recognized as #1 Best Performing Small Winery at the 2019 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada.
Full, rich and impressively full-bodied with dark fruit. Intense, broody and even sultry in disposition. Black currant and licorice are generously offered on the palate. Notably complex with very good length. Score – 91. (Sara d’Amato, winealign.com, Nov. 16, 2020)
Available in strictly limited quantities. Order online through the LCBO Classics Catalogue.
