The birthplace of Australian Shiraz has created two new Shiraz blends -
Wyndham Estate Bin 525 Shiraz Grenache and Bin 515 Shiraz Viognier.
Wyndham Estate brings 177 years of winemaking experience to Canada
with the introduction of George Wyndham Founder's Reserve range.
TORONTO, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - Canadians continue to have an affinity for the
red wines from Wyndham Estate, including an ever increasing fondness for the
Bin 555 Shiraz. To spice up the relationship, Wyndham Estate is delighted to
announce the global launch of Wyndham Estate Bin 525 Shiraz Grenache and the
Canadian launch of Wyndham Estate Bin 515 Shiraz Viognier. This summer,
Wyndham Estate will also introduce Canadians to the award winning George
Wyndham Founder's Reserve premium wine range.
"We know Canadian wine lovers like to experiment with the wines they know
best, so we decided to introduce Shiraz blends that offer new taste sensations
by blending traditional flavours with new ones," says Nigel Dolan, Chief
Winemaker, Wyndham Estate. "We also feel the time is right to bring the award
winning, premium George Wyndham Founder's Reserve range to Canadian consumers,
who are recognized as sophisticated wine drinkers and Australian Shiraz
Wyndham Estate Bin 525 Shiraz Grenache and Bin 515 Shiraz Viognier
Shiraz and Grenache varietals have intense chemistry together, as the
Shiraz provides the strength and structure of dark fruit aroma, while the
Grenache has a lovely fragrance and spice. Bin 525 Shiraz Grenache is light
enough to be enjoyed on its own, but strong enough to be paired with Caesar
salad, tomato based pasta dishes or a variety of Asian food.
"I have always been a big fan of Grenache wines, particularly those from
the fantastic old vineyards across the Wyndham Estate Barossa and McLaren
valleys, and when partnered with Shiraz, it is truly one of the best
combinations wine has to offer," says Dolan.
Bin 515 Shiraz Viognier is a new twist on an old world classic,
fermenting high quality Shiraz with a small amount of the white grape,
Viognier. It is an excellent match with hearty stews, rich pasta dishes, beef,
lamb, game meats or mildly spicy Indian and Thai dishes.
The 2006 Wyndham Estate Bin 515 Shiraz Viognier ($16.45 Retail) and 2008
Wyndham Estate Bin 525 Shiraz Grenache ($16.45 Retail) will be available at
select LCBO stores in General List and Ontario restaurants starting February
