For you or the connoisseur you love, this collection contains a bottle of premium Irish Whiskey and three deliciously decadent wines from Ontario.
Wayward Spirits’ flagship, this is a rich and complex whiskey. Expect intense fruit on the nose, with dried cherries, figs, and citrus zest. On the palate, a smooth, soft sparkle, with toasted malt, hazelnuts, blackberries, kiwi and fig roll. The finish is long, warm, and spicy, with pepper and citrus zest. Gently cut over 5 to 6 weeks, not chill filtered, not colored. Wayward Spirits’ small batch blending is a collaborative process between their team of 3 blenders, bringing together John’s decades of classic scotch perspective, Julia’s extensive knowledge of world whiskey, and Maurice’s determination to create something approachable and flavorful.
The 2017 estate Riesling Icewine represents a classic take on this noble variety. On the nose, there are pronounced aromas of candied lemon, poached pear, honeysuckle, yuzu, grilled pineapple, and mandarin orange. Bright citrus adds a wonderful sense of freshness to the tasting experience, as exotic fruit replays throughout the palate. Finishes with complex flavors of fuji apple, tarte tatin, marzipan, preserved peach, mango, and wildflower honey.
A benchmark example of Ontario Cabernet Franc, produced with fruit from an exceptional vintage. Aromatics of crushed blackberries, cracked red peppercorns, wild strawberries, fresh marjoram, and sweet tobacco lead you to a harmonious fruit-forward palate and long finish, with accents of toasted almond, allspice, and a hint of dark chocolate.
A classic cool-climate wine, this vintage of estate Gewurztraminer-Riesling showcases aromatics of green apple, lychee, pink grapefruit, and rose petal. The palate builds on the charming aromatics, with the addition of Mayuka honey, ripe peach, tangerine, grilled pineapple, ginger, and passion fruit. Bright acid alongside ripe, sweet heirloom pear, and exotic fruit in this off-dry wine creates a beautifully balanced palate, suitable to a wide variety of food pairings.
