Speaking of Wine...
 
 
Dear Jamie,

Winemaking reaches a "Crushendo"! 
 
CrushendoSelection Estate Wine Series, Winexpert's ultra-premium wine kit has redefined the winemaking product landscape by offering a limited number of prestigious wine styles sourced from select vineyards in the world's great wine producing regions. Selection Estate Wine Series showcases the finest 100% pure varietal grape juice and concentrate with no sugars added, creating wines of superior flavour, aroma and complexity.
The Selection Estate Series Crushendo takes winemaking excellence to another level by combining all the fine attributes of Estate Series and offering the winemaker the opportunity to add crushed grapeskins contained in a grape pack called "Crushendo". These top caliber kits yield deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with intense tannins. You can enjoy these amazing varieties in the Crushendo Series:
  • Castellina Supertuscan di Siena
  • Montagnac Syrah/Mourvèdre
  • Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
  • South Australian Single Vineyard Shiraz
  • Valpolicella Classico di Veneto 
While Crushendo wines are tempting to drink right after bottling, the gripping tannins will open up and blossom into an elegantly powerful wine with layers of dense fruit and spiciness after proper cellaring. Suggested aging time for the Crushendo Series is one year; therefore, these wines are more suited to the patient winemaker -- but patience is rewarded as the extraordinary results make the wait more than worthwhile!
Drop by the shop for further information!
 

Lest We Forget... 

Just Fine Wine would like to salute all of our war veterans and fallen heros.
In recognition of Remembrance Day, we will have shortened hours on November 11th. The shop will be open Noon until 5pm.

JUST FINE WINE is very excited to announce some upcoming changes to our website. Let's rephrase that, it's not just a few changes, it's a total reconstruction!

computerThe NEW site is designed to be more interactive. The Product Page has a "Detailed Wine Search" which links directly to Winexpert's databanks. You can easily pair yourself up with wines that specifically suit your palate! A "Check Your Wine" feature will also be implemented, allowing you to keep up to the minute data on your wine's development. You can request a future order and also set-up / view / change / or request notification of a bottling appointment...all from the comfort of your own PC!
 
We are extremely excited to provide you with this cutting-edge online tool and hope that the new justfinewine.ca will further improve your overall experience with us.

Wine and Food Matching Principles
 
 - Match Your Wine to the strongest flavour on the plate.
 
- Balance the weight of the wine to the weight of the food. A full flavoured meals needs a full-bodies wine; a lighter dish requires a lighter wine.
 
- Salty dishes need a slightly sweet wine with full fruit flavours, moderate acidity, lower alcohol and no tannins.
 
- Hot, spicy dishes require refreshing acidity, lower alcohol and fruity wines with a touch of sweetness.
 
- Cream sauces and butter require wines of good fruit and matching creamy style or contrasting acidity to cleanse the palate.
 
- Rare meats need young tannic reds and well-done meats need older or fruity reds with little to no tannins.
 
- The dessert wine should be sweeter than the dessert.
 
- Foods high in acidity are complemented by wines high in acidity.
