Are you Naughty or Nice?

Aug 28, 2015

‘Tis the season to be jolly and nothing’s more jolly than a little tongue and cheek fun with Santa’s Naughty and Nice list.

Island Mist now has two delicious Holiday inspired mists to choose from, Naughty Mist and Nice Mist.

Naughty Mist: Fruit forward Merlot with a “naughty” side.  Aromas of spiced orange and brown sugar with notes of cinnamon and ginger for a lingering finish with a kick.

Nice Mist: Crisp Pinot Grigio with notes of fresh green apple, festive white cranberries and a round finish.  This wine definitely makes the nice list.

 

These wines are available now but only for limited time while supplies last. See your retailer today.

Winexpert has secured a limited quantity of superb quality juice and is able to offer it as a limited release product under the Eclipse brand. The quantity of juice is limited but we expect Forza to be available for about one year.

NEW Island Mist Coconut Yuzu Pinot Gris

Mar 10, 2015

Introducing a unique and delicious Island Mist flavour that will have you in a vacation state-of-mind with the first sip. New Coconut Yuzu Pinot Gris is flavoured with coconut water and has a tropical splash of Yuzu and hint of lime. 

Not familiar with Yuzu? Yuzu [pronounced YOO-zoo] is a Japanese citrus fruit which is about the size of a tangerine. It’s being hailed as the next superfruit and is being used to flavour everything from beer to chewing gumIt tastes like a cross between a lemon, mandarin and grapefruit and it’s sourness and acidity plays well against the coconut notes and sweetness of Island Mist.

Jul 21, 2014

New ENIGMA from California has intense fruit aromas and notes of black cherry, coffee, chocolate and vanilla.  Full bodied with a smooth, round finish.

NEW Eclipse Barossa Valley Shiraz with Grape Skins

Nov 08, 2013

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s quintessential wine region. Located in South Australia, Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions dating back to 1841. However, it wasn’t until the late 1900’s that Barossa Shiraz became well known internationally, and was considered its own unique style of Syrah.

This style of big, full bodied Shiraz with rich notes of chocolate and spice has become synonymous with Barossa Valley and Australian wine in general.

Tasting notes: Aromas of robust blackberry, peppercorns and smoked meat. Full-bodied yet smooth with big, dark, peppery fruit and plush texture on the palate. This full-bodied wine needs an equally rich dish to stand up to its big aromas and flavours. Think thick stews, or grilled steaks with sautéed mushrooms. The dark fruit notes in this wine would also pair beautifully with roast pork and cranberry chutney.
