What's in your pack...

Malivoire 2015 Small Lot White
The beauty of a blend is that it can be so much more than the sum of its parts. And this concoction is a uniquely Malivoire kind of wine. It has that sense of playfulness that we love from Malivoire, yet it’s no novelty. You get the supple texture of the Chardonnay and its apple notes, plus the spice of the Pinot Gris and the Viognier, and tropical elements of Gewurtztraminer. It’s super fun and tastes great.

Creekside Estate Winery 2012 Iconoclast Red
The Iconoclast Red from Creekside has been a kwäf favourite for a long time. Taste Bud and sommelier Zoltan Szabo has been putting it on his wine lists going back 15 years. Creekside Estate Winery has a real winner with this blend of six grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot. But 2012 was extra special. As the good folks at Creekside have said: “The 2012 growing season felt like it was imported up from California.” For a taste of sunshine this holiday season, look no further.

The Coffee
This is Toronto-based, Pilot Coffee Roasters’ diligent, tried-and-true espresso blend. This steadfast blend is designed to produce a big-bodied shot packed with flavour and complexity that can hold its own when combined with milk.
While its component parts rotate depending on the season, its defining feature is a fine balance of dark fruit, Swiss chocolate and nutty tones with medium acidity, tailor-made to stand the test of time.

The Chocolate
Hand-made with love in their Toronto shop, Soul Chocolate creates fair- and direct-trade chocolates wrapped in beautiful packages. Package includes three mini bars complete with tasting notes.
