Red Carpet Treatment
Red Carpet Treatment
An extra rare treat from the far flung vineyards of Domaine de Kalathas, on the tiny Aegean island of Tinos in Greece. We’ve only ever had the Kalathas reds at wine fairs so it’s a real joy to introduce them to Ontario for the first time! Meaning ‘The Red,’ (as in, this is The Red), this is a redolent light red with the luxurious weight and texture of red velvet stage curtains. Incredibly plush with notes of cranberry Canada Dry, lingonberry lemonade, forced rhubarb, melon rind and an unripe-but-ripe greenness, verging on mint. An immense red that isn’t a Big Red, if you catch our drift – light and lustrous, full yet brisk, pure pleasure with a deft hand. Pair with scintillating conversation and Detransition Baby by Torrey Peters.
No longer are we smuggling bottles of Kalathas in our suitcases! Jérôme Binda makes a tiny (but growing!) amount of wine from the tiny Aegean island of Tinos, Greece. Working with ancient, own-rooted vines up to 250 years old, his wines have incredible vivacity and are amongst the most coveted wines in the world, testaments to the singular energy only old vines can impart. ‘‘To Kokkinaki’ means ‘the little red,’ a musky, high-octane rosé that speaks to sun, soil & earth that reminds us an awful lot of some of our favourite light reds with an opulent texture and a distinct, herbaceous edge – the choice is not yours because we’re defying labels here! Smushed raspberries in the sun meet fallen apples, raspberry leaf, white tea, crabapple & dried sage. Pair with chunky necklaces, Tabis & a black muumuu dress like the esteemed patron(izer) of the arts you are.
