Southbrook Vineyards was Canada’s first Demeter Certified Biodynamic Winery and one the country’s most respected and important sources for top quality wines. Southbrook’s estate vineyards in Niagara were established in the early-2000s, and the showcase winery (designed by the famous Canadian Architect Jack Diamond) was built shortly there after. Today Winemaker Ann Sperling oversees the production from this 150 acre estate property, crafting complex, sophisticated and elegant wines showcasing this exceptional terroir. Owners Bill and Marilyn Redelmeier’s deep and abiding respect for sustainable agriculture guide their industry-leading philosophies around responsible stewardship of their land. This important estate is a benchmark example of the viticultural achievement possible in Canada’s leading wine producing region.
TRIOMPHE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
There is a reason Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular wines out there; it is a grape that has taken root in almost every corner of the world. Grown on warm sites and harvested at low yields, Niagara Cabernet Sauvignon expresses a style all its own, delivering the same complexity and drinking pleasure found in Left bank Bordeaux. Southbrook Vineyards is doing just that. Southbrook is Canada’s largest certified Organic winery by volume, and the first Demeter-certified Biodynamic wine estate. The principles of organic farming demand that producers keep strict control of yields and other related factors, driving up quality. This Cabernet is a beautiful expression of dark fruit and subtle oak spice, perfect for pairing with summer fare or long nights on the patio with friends.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect partner for grilled ret meats – and particularly with fattier cuts of beef like ribeye or New York striploin. Bring some grilled peppers and mushrooms to the party and you’ll quickly discover the magic of Cabernet Sauvignon next to perfectly chosen foods.
“Savoury, juicy and ultra-delicious, this Cabernet is extremely aromatic and enticing with notes of fleshy ripe blackberry and black plum. Mouth-watering and lip-smacking good. Smooth and supple on the palate with a long finish. The bonus? This is an organic wine. Pair with free range beef.”
