Sunrock Vineyards Illumina 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere’s nothing shy about this wine, even in 2016 and its blend of two thirds zinfandel and one third shiraz. The fruit is super ripe with blackberry and blueberry flavours and a whack of vanilla and sweet cream. The sweetness is a real challenge for the discerning palate, but maybe with highly spiced dishes this hedonistic red can be reigned in. Try it with baby back ribs slathered in spicy barbecue sauce.Tasted: 21 December 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 private wine stores Producer: Sunrock VineyardsDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
