OUR EVENTS IN 2021
You are not seeing things - the BCWAS was back in action after 18 long months of COVID-imposed lockdown and social distancing.. but only for this one event in 2021.
This latest tasting in our ongoing series of (nearly) annual verticals featured the flagship wine of Poplar Grove, "The Legacy". This Bordeaux-inspired red blend has been produced since at least 2004: we know this because that is when our ten year vertical begins!
These meticulously aged bottles represent the finest grapes farmed by Poplar Grove from 2004 to 2013, and often bottled-aged at the winery for two years before release. Needless to say the BCWAS has taken up the mantle from Poplar Grove and continued that bottle aging for a spectacularly long time.
Not only does The Legacy regularly receive provincial and national acclaim, but in recent years there has been international recognition of Poplar Grove's winemaking: the 2016 vintage just received a Gold Medal (96 points) from the Decanter World Wine Awards. The wine has certainly grown and changed over time, as the vineyards have matured and expanded in size and scope, with more rare varieties such as Malbec and Petit Verdot added in later years to the more traditional Cabernet-Merlot blend.
