Residents of Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and New Brunswick can expect to find a new wine on liquor and wine store shelves this Spring! Meet Inception, a new red wine from Distell Group Ltd. as it makes it debuts in some Canadian provinces.
Inception is a red wine from South Africa and I would describe its flavour as sophisticated. It’s made of a blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre and Petit Verdot grapes that have been hand-picked to ensure the best quality taste. It also has underlying flavours of dark chocolate, fruit and with a hint of spice. The bouquet is red berries with nuances of oak and vanilla.
I wouldn’t describe it as a sweet wine though I did note a slight hint of sweetness with each sip. I don’t often drink red wine because I find it a stronger flavour than white. However, I enjoyed drinking a glass of Inception with a meal. It pairs beautifully with roast beef. I’d also try it with some spicy chicken dishes. It has a bold flavour so I would want to drink it with a meal that it would complement nicely.
I adore the artwork on the bottle! It’s designed to represent the layers of flavour in each glass of Inception. You can try and figure out the hidden meaning and decipher the image if you like. I thought it lent well to the air of mystery and intrigue the wine represents.
Inception comes in a 750 mL bottle and has an SRP of up to $15.99. It’s available in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and New Brunswick. Note that pricing and availablility may vary depending where you live. I’m in Ontario now so can pick up more bottles at the LCBO to have on hand for future dinner parties and get-togethers.
