Burger Blend Gamay / Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

For us, “burgers” evoke memories of backyard barbecues, of sunshine and warm evenings, of good food and laughter with friends and family. The goal of this wine was to produce a fruit-laden and refreshing red that represents excellent value and one that would bring out the best in your burger. A challenging task since the perfect burger can be a very personal and unique creation. Consider the traditional elements: the acidity of pickle, the sweetness of relish and ketchup and the spice of BBQ sauce and mustard. Our final combination for Burger Blend is a satisfying mix of ripe red berry, balanced with acidity and a smooth, round fruity mouthful that can be enjoyed alone or with your favourite summer backyard fare, burgers most certainly included! Respect your burger… serve it with Burger Blend!

WINEMAKING NOTES

The original 13th Street Burger Blend was produced in the late 90’s and was an eclectic mix of a wine which incorporated pretty much every red variety in the wineries stables. After a long hiatus we are pleased to announce Burger Blend is back! The 2017 is primarily a combination of just two varieties: Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir – two of our most important red varietals.
