What makes Smoke&Gamble one of Norfolk’s most exciting wines? Age… time in the barrel. More than expensive decoration, barrel aging contributes structure, body and tannin, softening the wine to form a richer, more complex flavour. Barrel aging brings out the pepper and aromas of a newly opened cigar box with burning harvest leaves.
Smoke&Gamble Reserve… unique, memorable, aged separately through final blending to ensure the finished wine is worthy of the “Reserve” title. While our magnificent wines are ready to be savoured when released, they can be easily aged for enjoyment in future years.
Welcome to our Private Club.
It started as a dream…
Then some wine drinking, serious thoughts, more wine, and some outlandish plans. What were we thinking? After learning that we can’t get there from here, we naturally had some more wine and voilà!
The result is Frisky Beaver. 100% Canadian – made from 100% Canadian grapes. Where else would you expect your Beaver to be from? We pledge to provide magnificent wines that you would be proud to share and enjoy with friends.
So what’s the story here? Well we had a bunch of wine we didn’t know what to do with. Quite frankly, we don’t even really remember what type of wine it was.
Luckily for you and us, it doesn’t really matter. All that matters is that it always pairs well with food, pairs well without food, and also pairs well with more Crappy Wine!
