Alma Mater Select - 2014 Parchment
Crafted in the vineyards of the Naramata Bench, this blend of Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc boasts flavours of gooseberry, butter, green apple, melon, and lemon zest.
Nose: gooseberry, butter, green apple, melon, lemon zest
Palate: zingy Lime, golden delicious apple, pear, very approachable with a lush minerality
Suggested Food Pairings
This is an easy going summertime wine which would pair well with just about any pork or fish dish and even some spicy Asian dishes. You can't go wrong pairing this wine with a fresh fruit salad or Upper Bench Grey Baby or Italian Gold cheese. It's also refreshing on its own.
Alma Mater Select - 2012 Über Rouge
This is Upper Bench’s first varietal blend comprising of approximately 70% Zweigelt, 20% Merlot and 10% Pinot Meunier. This versatile medium-bodied red offers distinct aromas of black cherry, blueberry, anise and cedar. A fruit forward, approachable palate leads to a long cherry finish.
Suggested Food Pairings
Enjoy with anything from a selection of Upper Bench’s cheese to grilled meats or pasta.
Also remember to cellar a few bottles and open one every year to find the optimal drinking time.
