#FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions | Upper Bench🍷 🎅

“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:

2019 Chardonnay


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

$27.00 available online

2018 Merlot


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

$30.00 available online
