“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
Welcoming back Upper Bench to #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions with two great wine suggestions that are sure to please the wine lovers on your list.
Suggested wines for gift giving:
Our Chardonnay is partially oaked, 50% is aged in French oak barrels for 3 months and 50% is in stainless steel tanks. The limited exposure to oak provides balance and structure without detracting from the fruit and terroir. If you have not enjoyed Chardonnay in the past, we encourage you to try this one; it will change your mind!
Nose: graphite, toffee, vanilla bean, peach, banana, buttered popcorn
Palate: peach, toast, lemon curd, gooseberry, minerality, honeycrisp apple, Asian pear
This Merlot is smooth and easy drinking, but is full of flavour. It is one of our most popular reds here at Upper Bench.
Nose: blackberry, cassis, cigar box, cedar, lingonberry
Palate: black cherry, red currant, leather, mocha, fine tannins, brooding intensity
