From the vineyard to your table. Tucked away on Halifax’s historic waterfront, Bishop’s Cellar has been providing world class wines to Nova Scotians since 2003.
Vinicola del Priorat is a unique cooperative operation in the heart of Priorat’s wine growing area in southern Catalonia. Formed by farmer-producers, this cooperative organization is unusual because it manages the entire process of wine production, development and marketing. It is such a beautiful area that has some amazing wines. This wine has aromas that will burst with green fruit and citrus notes including Asian pear, green apple, lime zest, and white peach. Other flavours include subtle sweet floral notes of honeysuckle with hints of baked apple, brioche and lemon curd. On the palate it will be plump and rich with juicy pear flavours that give a salty minerality as a finish. This is paired well with tempura shrimp, Chinese 5-Spice sea bass, broiled lobster, and braised short rib. This makes Grenache Blanc particularly well suited with richly spiced dishes, whether they be of Moroccan, Spanish, Indian or Asian origin. Just remember not to go too spicy with heat because alcohol makes capsicum burn!Read more about Gaby
