What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
Your angels are always thirsty! Take a peek into what we are sipping this week, with this weeks edition of Wines of The Week!
Megalomaniac Narcissist Riesling 2016 – With a name like this, who can you not love this Riesling! We say ‘hey hey’ for VQA! Put your best foot forward and feel the confidence when you pour the Narcissist Riesling from Megalo!
Tasting Note: Riesling is a grape that clearly represents where it’s grown – hence, the mirror-image label and narcissist moniker. You’ll love yourself for trying the lime, tangerine, pear, apple and mineral here. Pair it with spicy chicken pad Thai or pan-seared scallops, or simply sip and reflect.

The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14YO Scotch Whisky – We loved learning all about Balvenie from Canadian Brand Ambassador Jamie Johnson and this was one of your favourites. If you haven’t come out to a WHiSKEY NEAT event, here’s your chance.
Tasting Note: Finishing in ex-rum casks for added character and smoothness; the dram pours a shimmering amber colour and offers intense aromas of burnt sugar, oatmeal, brown butter, apricot and citrus. The palate is rich and creamy with flavours of tropical fruit, cinnamon, dried fruit and citrus followed by an enduring fruity, finish.
