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.
Le Ballon is an affordable producer that uses organic wine practices to make delicious wines in Languedoc-Roussillon France. Le Ballon Rouge is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon growing on soils of basalt and gravelly clay. The nose is expressive with lots of bright red fruit. The palate is attractive, mouthfilling and fresh with lots of ripe fruit flavours. This vintage has 50% Grenache which adds a little spicy, berry-flavoured on the palate. Grenache gives it all that lovely raspberry and strawberry with a subtle, white pepper spice note This wine does showcase a well rounded, easy drinking red wine blend from the Languedoc. Delicious with grilled pork chops and other various meats, seasonal vegetables with fresh herbs and an assortment of cheeses. True value in this wine.Read more about Gaby
