Lailey Vineyard Double Header

The Ontario Wine Society

presents a


University of Toronto – Faculty Club
Tuesday May 12, Reception 6:00pm, Tasting 6:30pm
5.30 pm: OWS Annual General Meeting


Futures have already been sold for the 2007 vintage.  And why not!!  Described as the “vintage of the century” and “the best ever for Niagara reds”, it behooves the OWS to make wines from this vintage available for our members to taste and purchase. To this end, Lailey Vineyard will include an opportunity to buy the wines we taste.  After discussions with winemaker Derek Barnett, Lailey agreed to age the same wine, their 2007 Syrah, in three different kinds of oak barrels, using an American oak barrel for the first time. This is also the first known time any consumer will have the opportunity to “blind” taste a wine which has been aged in three different types of oak barrels.


The evening will start with a white wine reception:

2007 Chardonnay & 2008 Riesling
It will then progress through 6 exceptional reds:
2007 Cabernet Franc
2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
2007 Impromptu (Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot)
2007 Pinot Noir
2007 Meritage (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot)
2007 Special Mystery Wine

It will end with the Syrah that has been aged in 3 different types of oak barrels:
2007 Syrah in American Oak
2007 Syrah in Canadian Oak
2007 Syrah in French Oak

The evening will be led by Derek Barnett
