New Wines at Vintages

Profile Wine Group has five new wines in this week’s Vintages Release…

We have five new products releasing at the LCBO this weekend:

Dandelion Vineyards Lioness of McLaren Vale 2018
Wine of the Month |  LCBO# 357475 | $20.95

Densely yet brightly purple in body with violet streaks at rim edge. Aromas of white chocolate and the best cocoa you can buy. Boysenberry, blackberry – both ripe but fine; then smells of wild strawberries and their foliage, with mulberry and cherry also in the air. In this youthful stage of its life, it really is all about the aromatics. Here we find a natural partnership between the powdery, fine, dry and happy tannins of well-grown Shiraz with the intense, coiled power of pure McLaren Vale fruit. The tannins rest in the background with the acid keeping the blackberry, plum and wild raspberry fruit flavours well-puckered. The back palate and aftertaste become more elegant and refreshing, giving the wine real harmony.

Food pairing: It being both rich and savoury, mouthfilling yet elegant, this red wine has versatility when it comes to the table. For the brave try Dressed Honeycomb Tripe cooked in the Spanish manner with smoked paprika, sherry vinegar, tomato puree, too many aromatic vegetables, cider, and some chick peas for textural effect. Stew for 2 hours.

“Matured in French and American oak (mainly used) for 18 months. Deeply coloured crimson-purple, it is redolent of McLaren Vale with layers of black fruits, choc-mint and ripe tannins, the oak important for texture, not flavour. All up, a thoroughly impressive wine at this price.” 95 Pts & Gold – James Halliday, winecompanion.com, August 1, 2020

Montes Alpha Special Cuvee Pinot Noir 2018
Flagship ISD | LCBO# 19288 | $29.95

This latest vintage of our Montes Alpha Special Cuvée Pinot Noir is an unmistakably bright and clean, ruby-red colour. The nose impresses with pure, red berry notes, of cherry and redcurrant, as well as blueberry and blackberry. The wine’s time in French oak adds delicate toasted notes, beautifully integrated with the fresh fruit. The palate is very expressive, with exquisitely lively body, and tremendous breadth on the finish, confirming the impression on the nose.

Food pairing: Highly recommended with pasta and pesto, mild, creamy soups (mushroom, chicken), veal chops, salmon, Camembert cheese, mushroom risotto, arugula and herb salad, and bruschetta.

“This shows really contrastive and vivid fruit with a combination of freshness, just ripe strawberries and hints of herbs and stone. It’s full-bodied, yet racy and refined. The flavors and polished tannins channel into the finish and go on for minutes. Really structured at the end. This is one for the cellar. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.” 94 Pts – James Suckling, April 17, 2020

Intense, spicy, with touches of black pepper. Spicy, profound, unctuous with persistent tannin. Length and important end in mouth. Elegant, complex, well balanced.

Food pairing: Excellent to accompany hunting meat.

“Shows tea, currant and cassis-bush aromas that follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a chewy finish. Bright and chewy. Drink now or hold.” 92 Pts – James Suckling, June 21, 2017
