Fielding Estate Winery Cabernet Syrah 2017 is a rich and savoury red with a burly nature that’s best suited to barbecued, roasted or braised meat dishes. Blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavours are enhanced by pepper, toasty oak and chocolate notes. The blend features 57 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 43 per cent syrah from a variety of Niagara vineyards, which helps to contribute to the complexity and character. At three years of age, this is just starting to hit its stride. Decant for best enjoyment if you’re opening a bottle this fall. Drink now to 2026.
Also from Ontario is the very good 2019 Fielding Estate Unoaked Chardonnay, VQA Niagara Peninsula (Vintages Essential 164491, $15.95). This bone dry, light-bodied thriller is lively and quenching. It races across the palate with streams of lemon-lime, pineapple and apple flavours that taste bright and pure. Score: 92
