The week in drinking vol. 2

- April 13th, 2012

Just a day late, but here’s a couple of suggestions if you’re looking to try something new this weekend.

Fernie Maple Porter: maple and chocolate collide in a deliciously forceful way, complimented with the hearty bubbles that make a good porter. Not too sweet, thankfully.

La Crema Pinot Noir 2009: This delicious California Pinot smells like a berry orchard, with a fruit salad of plums, strawberries and cherries on the palate. A good tang on the finish, but not overly acidic.

Big Rock Dunkelweizen: Part of the Calgary brewery’s Brewmaster Series, this recent offering from Big Rock offers big flavour. Aromas of chocolate on the nose, which continues on the palate, followed by fruit and caramel, with a finish that feels like light cream. That characteristic makes it perfect to pair with silky cheeses.

That’s what has caught my attention this week.

If there’s something you think I should try, don’t hesitate to drop me a line at dave.breakenridge@sunmedia.ca
