Harrison Regional Food
The other night was another night of cooking at home and by another we mean the second and last time of the week. As the sun on our community patio is setting earlier and earlier we are sadly but quickly running out of great bar-b-que evenings. On this night we were having fresh corn from a recent trip to Harrison Hot Springs with pork chop for Jeff and a turkey and hazelnut burger (also from Harrison) for Tara.
On this night we choose a bottle of Santa Julia Malbec from Argentina (which we read about in Anthony Gismondi’s weekly Vancouver Sun feature). For the dinner we were having the wine was a bit darker than we normally would have picked with dark fruits and a hit of coffee aroma. It is aged for 10 years in French oak barrels giving it some additional smokey flavours and was better than expected for the price. The wine is now produced by third generation winemakers with a commitment for the land and the environment. Among the initiatives they employ are: 100% sustainably farmed grapes Energy conservation Green fertilizers Wildlife preservation.
At $12.99 for a bottle we will be sure to enjoy another soon!!
