vidalKenneth Christie, Master of Wine*, recently reviewed a selection of Black Prince 2009 releases and states, “These are the best yet from Black Prince Winery.”

Our newly released Black Prince 2009 Vidal is one of the selection that Kenneth recently tasted and we have to agree this is one of our best Vidals yet.  With an instant gush of sappy herbal aromas, mouth-watering fresh acidity and ripe fruit flavours, this off-dry is perfectly balanced and an excellent patio sipper.

During the month of August when you order this wine on-line, receive free shipping, just select “shipping offer” to be eligible. 

*(The designation Master of Wine was created in 1953 and exists to promote the highest level of educational achievement for the wine industry. There are only 250 individuals around the world today who have achieved this designation. One candidate has passed the grueling examinations in Canada, a handful in the United States, even more in Australia but most are in the UK including the well-known writer/author Jancis Robinson.

Pinot GrisSummer heat getting to you?

Cool off with a crisp clean glass of our newly released Black Prince Pinot Gris 2009.

This is a bold expression of varietal typicity with a lovely nose of floral with guava notes.  The long pronounced upfront taste leads to a wonderful zing with lots of fruit.  The  crisp, clean finish and balanced acidity keeps you coming back for more.

What a great wine to enjoy on the patio!
