One of the fun challenges of running a restaurant is keeping current with the latest Wine trends! Us West Coasters LOVE our wine and we here at the Roadhouse Grille are no exception! Having a good wine that pairs perfectly with your food just adds that zen to your day. Speaking of Zen :) we have added a Zinfandel to our Wine Menu! 7 Deadly Zins is from Michael David Winery. It's a rich deep robust wine FULL of flavours, including rich berry and spice that just explode in your mouth, it's a MUST try! It would pair well with BBQ flavours, it is that good!! Pair it with our Rib Eye Steak and a side of our homemade Corn Bread! you won't be disappointed! This is a quickly growing favourite wine amongst self proclaimed Wine lovers! This is the write up from the BC Liquor Stores
"One of the best vintages in recent memory. Vibrant ruby in colour with lots of rich earth and dark berry aromas on the nose. Bright raspberry, cranberry fruit, with some warm spice on the lingering finish. The silk-smooth tannins hold the wine together and deliver a soft, fruit-driven experience. It's a blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot aged 15 months in American oak. Pairs well with red meat, bold cheeses and great for barbecued dishes."
Bend in the River Riesling from Germany is one of our 2 new Whites here at the Roadhouse Grille. Riesling is a sweeter white, which is Owner Dwayne's favourite wine. If you are looking for a no-fail White Wine to pair with then a Riesling is the perfect wine! It pairs very well with most cheeses, appetizers, spicy Thai, salads, porks, Mexican ... basically it goes well with anything!! Here is a description of the Bend in the River Riesling:
"The aroma is that of lively lemon and lime zest, with softer herbal notes throughout. Bright in color, the clear, golden straw hue of this Riesling is a visual accompaniment to a crunchy green apple and grapefruit taste. It is ripe and juicy with a dry yet fresh finish."
The last of our new wines that we recently added to our Roadhouse Grille Wine Menu was Grey Monk Estate Winery's Pinot Blanc. We didn't currently have a Pinot Blanc on our Wine Menu and upon tasting it during our little search, which is a GREAT perk by the way! tasting wines as part of your job would be on anyone's job wish list!, we knew instantly that this wine had to be a part of our list. It's always a joy to support BC Wines and this Wine would be perfect with our Chicken Schnitzel or our Pasta dishes! Here is the description of the wine from Gray Monk:
"Pale straw in colour, this wine has a fruity aroma suggesting pears, herbs and light spice. It is packed with fresh and sweet fruit flavours, including ripe pears, apples and melons. Supple and full in texture, the wine has a dry finish. Serve chilled with seafood, poultry or mild cheese. "
