Unsworth Vineyards Ovation Solera

Unsworth Vineyards Ovation Solera NV

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaUnsworth Ovation is a solera blend of estate maréchal foch. The more I taste this grape, the more I think is that it is best suited to port style wines. Very reminiscent of a late bottled vintage port with some slightly elevated alcohol notes mixed into sweet, dark, fruitcake flecked with dried plums. The textures are rounded, with more sweet, spicy, lifted, fruit notes in the warm finish. This is a good start; let the solera continue. Best with nut-based desserts or local blue cheese dishes.Tasted: 14 October 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.90 500 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Unsworth VineyardsDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
