cherry_bottle_125x560

Name of the Wine: Elephant Island Cherry

Country of Origin: Canada (BC)

Year: 2012 (fresh off the press!!)

Price: $18.25  (it is $16.99 on their website!)

Rating: 3.7

What made this wine fit our theme for the night?: Our theme was cherries! Well, half of the theme was cherries and the other half was garden greens. This bottle fit perfectly!

Comments: This wine is made from cherries! Fruit wines can be so awesome… or really bad.  Prisoners make fruit wine in old boots as a reference point for ya’.

This one is really great. It is not too sweet and we had to actually google the winery to see what was in this bottle.

The label says you can drink it with anything. Maybe that is a bit of a stretch but it really is fantastic. It is tart and full bodied. You could have it with steak I think… but it wouldn’t be my first choice. It had a heavy texture but little finish. No one at the table super loved it but no one hated it either.  You serve it slightly chilled and you should try it for sure!

Would I buy this wine again? Absolutely!! Especially as a gift. This would be a great hostess gift for someone who is quite into wine!

    Elephant Island is my favorite winery in Naramata, and it is close since I live in Penticton but Framboise is their wine that tickles the buds.

    I thought this was great and can’t wait to try the others. Their back story is pretty neat too!
