BC winery introduces wine for Chinese New Year


For the first time ever, a BC winery has released a wine specifically for the Chinese New Year.

A limited release (688 bottles) of the 2012 Haywire Pinot Noir’s beautiful yellow and red label features symbols of the horse and good fortune, to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year, and to welcome the Year of the Horse.

I haven’t tried the wine yet, but according to the winemaker’s tasting notes, it “was gently aged in old French oak barrels and bottled in its purest state and has lovely cherry aromas and fruit-forward flavours, with soft texture and light tannins. It pairs well with pepper and onion sauce pork rib as well as seared sablefish with sweet soy sauce and baby bok choi.”

Alas, not yet for sale in Alberta, it can be found in BC at  St. Regis Fine Wines & SpiritsCrosstown Liquor StoreGarrison Wine & Liquor Merchants in Vancouver; and on Vancouver Island, at Hotel Grand PacificVintage Spirits, Village Liquor Store and Lucky’s Liquor Store.
