Black Swift Vineyards

Our first winery stop of the afternoon was at Black Swift Vineyards. They’re run by the same group (who also started The Hatch, Crown & Thieves and Truck 59 Ciderhouse).

We dropped in on a Thursday afternoon (around 4:15pm). There’s the option to either sit/stand inside or else there’s roughly a dozen outdoor picnic tables. We opted for the latter. Nice touch that there’s umbrellas for all the tables out in the sun.

Tasting includes 5 samples but our friendly hostess threw in an extra one for us.

2018 Long road riesling
DSC04260Found this light. Supposed to taste lychee notes but didn’t detect any of that.

2019 Black Swift pinot blanc
DSC04261A little more full bodied. Tasted like a Granny Smith apple.

2020 Frenzy rosé
DSC04263Not too sweet. Tastes like strawberry rhubarb and smelled reminiscent of Swedish berries.

2017 Monarch cab-merlot
DSC04264This one is aged in oak barrels. Notes of raspberry, smoke and ash at the end.

2017 Syrah
DSC04265This one was B’s favourite. Good mouth feel, fruity and very smooth. More complex than the 2018. We bought a bottle ($29.99) for home.

2018 Syrah
DSC04266Tasted a little more fruitier on the palate.

Good variety/selection of wines, beautiful scenery and friendly staff. Would come back to BSV.
