Sipping in Slippers Wine Tastings and Reviews Live on Instagram; BC Estate Wines
Black Hills Estate Winery, Cedar Creek Estate Winery, 50th Parallel Estate Winery, Priest Creek Family Estate Winery
Watch last live wine tastings now on YouTube - BC Whites and Gewürztraminer the Wiener Dog Steals the show again!
May 29, 2020 - Sipping with Slippers (www.sippingwithslippers.com) Winos announce this weeks' Friday night live Pandemic Pouring with virtual wine tastings and reviews of four fabulous estate wines plus the YouTube video release of their last wine tasting featuring four BC white wines and their amazing stories of hopes, dreams and perseverance.
The Slippers team will be tasting and reviewing four wines from BC live tonight (May 29th) on Instagram starting just after 7pm PST. Wines being tasted: Priest Creek Family Estate Winery 2019 Decota, Black Hills Estate Winery 2018 Rose., 50th Parallel Estate 2016 Pinot Noir ,Cedar Creek Estate Winery 2016 Meritage.
Tonight's theme is all about estate wineries; an estate-bottled wine is made entirely from grapes owned by the winery, and the wine is made entirely on the winery's property-it doesn't ever leave the property during fermentation, aging, or bottling.
The Winos in Slippers (that's all you get to see), Original Sip, Sneaky Sip (now drinking as Snooty Sip), Gewürztraminer the Wiener Dog and special guest Simple Sip will give you their tasting notes on these wines and hopefully be joined virtually by a few other wine fans as the night goes on. So, get your slippers on and break open a bottle of white and join them! Cheers!
The Winos rate the wines based on "Slippers Up," so a great wine gets 2 Slippers Up from each Wino and sometimes a "Slipper Toss" if it's really great!

About the wines:
2019 Decota - Do you just love bubbles!? Bright, bubbly and wonderfully effervescent.
2018 Rose - Tasting Notes:
Pale copper in colour, the 2018 Rose shows fresh watermelon, strawberry and peach aromas. Layered on top of the fruit aromas are subtle creamy and vanilla notes, developed during the wine's maturation on its yeast lees. There is a hint of rhubarb on the palate, and a savoury herbal note adds another dimension. This medium-bodied rose has a silky texture and crisp juicy acidity, and peach flavours continue throughout the finish. This wine is best served chilled and in its youth.
50th Parallel Estate Pinot Noir 2016- Savoury aromas of dried sage and rosemary. Smoked meats, sandalwood, wild rose and a touch of pepper present themselves as the wine develops in the glass.
Flavours of blueberry, ripe black cherry, vanilla, candied orange zest, black tea, lavender, licorice, cacao and white truffle. Integrated tannic structure gives the wine traction but it is not overbearing and presents a silky finish.
In the 2016 vintage, Cabernet Franc brings bright red fruit and leafy notes, Cabernet Sauvignon adds dark fruit, earth and structure and the Merlot wraps everything up in a smooth dark plum generosity.
