Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: Southbrook Organic Red Connect 2011
By Tony Aspler
Southbrook was the first winery in Canada to be certified as biodynamic by Demeter. Connect is a blend of major Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc in almost equal proportions. Deep ruby in colour, it offers a bouquet of cedar, blackcurrant and vanilla oak with a floral grace note. Medium-bodied, fruity and spicy with black fruit flavours and supple tannins. Great value. Food match: meat loaf or lamb burgers
$14.95. LCBO #249565
