Stonechurch 2007 Quintet
Just looking at the name of this wine you assume a 5 grape blend, so the mind wonders as to what they are. The natural assumption would be the 5 Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec, but you’d be only 2/3rds right; try instead to wrap your mind around this blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot along with Syrah, Pinot Noir and Gewurztraminer … yup the spicy-floral white grape makes an appearance in this red wine. It’s an interesting blend that’s smooth and supple with flavours that are primarily blueberry and raspberry with a hint of floral bringing it all together. Very interesting. Price: $24.95 – Rating: ****
