95% Albertan with a touch of stolen grapes from B.C. – Sold out.
It’s a dry honey wine, a fruit wine with lots of back bone and a red grape wine. It’s a Bastard, pure Alberta with a touch of stolen grapes from B.C. This wine has hints of cinnamon, prairie berries, grapes and some soft tannins in the end. It is well aged in oak casks. It pairs beautifully with red meats. Best served at room temperature.
Only a few cases left, plus what is left in stores. Given that we bastardized our local philosophy with this wine we do not plan to bring it back in the near future and are focusing our red wine production and barreling program on Saskwatch.
Bastard pairs great with a good steak, roast or burger. It is spectacular with game and ginger beef. For side dishes, Bastard pairs well with more neutral and sweeter dishes, like carrots and peas, or spinach.
