#ThisWineThatDish | Moon Curser Border Vines | Unstuffed Anaheim Peppers

Osoyoos East Bench grown, Bordeaux inspired: a Cabernet Sauvignon focused blend with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carménère…no Merlot was harmed in the making of this wine.

#Taste| Naramata Inn Okanagan Apple Oat Crumble | CedarCreek Platinum Reserve Riesling Icewine

This dessert is ALL about apples – use in-season, local apples if you can – these have an acidity and starch that really make the compote sing, that you won’t get at other times of the year.

#ThisWineThatDish | Maverick Sauvignon Blanc | Roasted Zucchini

Definitely the star of this dinner was the Maverick Sauvignon Blanc that was the perfect match for the Roasted Zucchini with Garlicky Bread Crumbs and Mozzarella. Plus a repeat dish (a definite favourite) Italian Sausage Meatballs, this time with Marinara Sauce.

#ThisWineThatDish | Frind The Premier 2019 | Hot Dogs !! ???

Deep, rich aromas of ripe fruit. Good colour and clarity. For such a young wine it has excellent body and distinctly mature flavours, mainly plum torte, followed by Red Delicious apples.

#ThisWineThatDish | Maverick Rubeus | Carbonara

Our very first red in a bottle! Rubeus/Rubicon: Named after a river in Italy (the Rubicon) that marked the point of no return. True to the origins of this wine, a portion of the different varietals used in this blend are co-fermented.

#ThisWineThatDish | Time Winery White Meritage | Arancini di Riso

Continuing on my theme of pairing a very good wine with a simple casual dish this one definitely fits the bill. What could be simpler, or easier, than leftovers. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you this pairing is with leftovers!

#ThisWineThatDish | Gold Hill Sauvignon Blanc | Pasta Primavera

This was a delightfully, wonderful choice to pair with the creamy, rich pasta and fresh garden vegetables. The wine was both light and complex.Smooth and crisp with aromas of Granny Smith apples.

#ThisWineThatDish | Moon Curser Syrah | Sweet & Spicy Grilled Vegetables

With this wonderful summer weather BBQ fare is king and this easy recipe is versatile and gives several options for ingredients, you’ve going to love it. Of course, like any good meal, the wine selection is key. For this dish with it’s mix of flavours and textures I chose a deliciously, slightly peppery Syrah from Moon Curser.
