The Great Canadian Wine Exchange – Discover the Premium wines of Niagara

As Niagara moves toward its 50th year as a modern wine producing region the experience of its winemakers and maturing of its vineyards is now plainly evident in the bottle. The Black Case highlights Niagara’s best with wines of pedigree that drill down into the sub-appellations and in some cases single vineyards. They are wines of complexity, structure and depth, fine to be enjoyed now with aeration but able to cellar as well.

To help support the winery communities across Canada at this time, we have carefully selected an exceptional ‘Black’ case of premium wines from Niagara for a special price of $514/case plus delivery. Delivery fees are estimated at $17 in Ontario (shipping locations, fees & COVID-19 update). The case is expected to ship in late April 2020.

Niagara Black

WineAlign partner Sara d’Amato handled the final curation and procurement of the Niagara Black Case and had this to say about it:

We get more site specific with our “Black” level offerings and you can expect to delve more deeply into Niagara terroir. Many of the bottles we have chosen are sourced from single vineyards of significance, our own crus, where particular varieties are distinctly expressive: Redstone vineyard for the later ripening syrah, Lowrey for complex pinot noir and Vinemount Ridge’s Picone vineyard for nervy riesling. You can also anticipate iconic blends, such as Equueleus, Terroir Caché and Droite that are inspired by Bordeaux but are distinctly Niagara in their generosity. Furthermore, prepare your palate for two disparate vintages of quality: the hot, dry 2016 that resulted in lavish reds and the chaotic 2017 that brought with it juicy, precise and compelling finds. We have assembled a dozen of our favourite wines sourced from across multiple Niagara sub-appellations. These wines are otherwise only available at the wineries or at select restaurants and it is our pleasure to bring them to your doorstep.
