2019 #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions – Liquidity Wines

Already I’ve lost track of what day on our list we have come to, but no matter, I do know it’s #WineWednesday so another day to introduce two more exceptional wines that we are calling our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions.

Whether you are looking for an award winning Pinot Noir or a Sparkling wine that will wow the wine lovers on your list then you will be wanting to include the Liquidity Reserve Pinot Noir and the Liquidity traditional Brut.

I have had the pleasure of tasting both of these wines and I personally recommend them for the special someone on your list this year while attending a Premium Lounge tasting, see my review here.

2017 Pinot Noir Reserve

Wine Profile
TASTING NOTES
A fuller bodied Pinot Noir with expressions of blackcurrant, boysenberry, violet, bergamot tea and cola. Layers of complexity on the palate lead into a silky smooth finish. Blend of the premium clones on Allendale property of 667, 828 with some 115. 36% new French oak and 15month barrel aged.
VINEYARD NOTES
Liquidity’s premium planting of clones 667 and 828, in combination with our 1994 planted of clone 115 all cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 2 short tons per acre.
WINEMAKER NOTES
The tiny clusters were gently harvested and destemmed, but not crushed. The whole berries were transferred to small fermenters and fermented with a mixture of wild and commercial yeast. Each fermenter was kept relatively cool (less than 25C) throughout fermentation and gently punched down by hand 2 times per day. The wine was then pressed to our finest French oak barrels (36% new) for malolactic fermentation and aged for 18 months, with a single racking by gravity
FOOD PAIRING NOTES
The richness of this Pinot calls for dishes such as rib-eye steak, pork tenderloin or brisket.

N/V Brut

Wine Profile
TASTING NOTES
Traditional method sparkling wine, aged 20 months on lees. Blend of 51% Chardonnay and 49% Pinot Noir. The first release of our sparkling Brut has lovely aromas of citrus, almond, biscuit and white peach. The palate is crisp, yet creamy with tiny, persistent mousse. Truly a stunning sparkling.
VINEYARD NOTES
Chardonnay clone 76 and Pinot Noir clone 114 from our young or low vigour blocks were selected to harvest early for traditional method sparkling
WINEMAKER NOTES
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were harvested in early September of 2016 and 2017 at 19 Brix. The wine was fermented in a combination of stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels. Following tirage bottling, the wine aged on lees for 20 months until disgorging
FOOD PAIRING NOTES
The texture and acidity of this wine make it a perfect pairing with antipasti, calamari, oysters and other shellfish.

GROWING AND PRODUCING INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNING WINES FOR OVER 20 YEARS

We use sustainable and time-tested viticultural practices to provide the finest growing environment for our vines. Great wines begin with great grapes. The land of Liquidity Wines is rich in history, just as it’s soils are rich in the perfect minerals to grow a range of varietals. 10,000 years ago, glaciers covered the landscape deposited sand and gravel soils onto the south-facing property, creating the ideal growing conditions for fruits.

Treat your senses to a visit to our state-of-the-art winery, bistro and gallery. Sample award-winning wines while surrounded by great modern art. Enjoy delicious, locally sourced meals indoors or on our beautiful patio, alongside an infinity water feature.

Winery

Liquidity wines are estate grown and hand harvested. We use sustainable and time-tested viticultural practices to provide the finest growing environment for our vines. The proof is in every glass of award- winning Liquidity wine we produce.

Our winemaker, Alison Moyes, acquired a degree in Oenology & Viticulture from Brock University. Following several seasons working in the Niagara region, Alison moved to the Okanagan and worked for two top wineries in the Valley prior to joining the team at Liquidity Wines. With equal parts artistry and science, winemaking is a perfect fit for Alison. Her goal is to produce authentic, expressive wines of the highest quality.

Bistro

Liquidity Bistro, lead by Head Chef Matt Martin, focusses on seasonal, sustainable, artful food. We are particularly excited to start our own farm garden here at the winery in 2018. It is incredibly important for people to know the story behind their food,
and this will provide diners with access to hyper- local ingredients that they can actually see growing onsite. We are also partnering with some amazing local farmers and businesses who share and support our beliefs.

Art Gallery

Ever-evolving art installations are in the bistro, tasting room and throughout the grounds. All design aspects of this property have been carefully chosen by the owner, Ian MacDonald.
