MyVanCity.ca - #ThisWineThatDish | Moon Curser Syrah | Sweet & Spicy Grilled Vegetables

"Everything I look for in a Syrah, juicy perfection with lighter tannins than I expected. The dish combined sweet, sour and savoury but the wine was up to the challenge. I knew that a peppery wine would be exactly right, and wow, definitely a hit.

Rich and smooth, with ripe fruit aromas and flavours of dark fruits like blackberry and just the right amount of tart wild blueberry to add interest and acidity."

Quench Magazine - "Blockbuster BC Red Blends"

"Mooncurser Dead of Night, 2018, Okanagan Valley VQA, Canada

This south Okanagan winery which doesn’t take itself too seriously does, in fact, make some pretty serious wines—and perhaps the widest selection of red varieties anywhere in the valley. This marriage of 52% Syrah with 48% Tannat delivers forward, vibrant red berries, chocolate and warm spice before well structured, mouth filling palate of mulberry, black pepper, leather and damson on the mouth-filling palate, buoyed by juicy acidity and a plush mouthfeel with well integrated, tannins through through the lengthy end. $39.99"

The Vancouver Sun - Anthony Gismondi: Knowing these B.C. wine regulations makes shopping for local wine easy

"Weekend Wine Picks

...

Moon Curser Border Vines 2018, Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada

$25.99 I 88/100

Border vines is a Cabernet forward blend of 69/15/10/3/3/ Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Carménère, Cabernet Franc. At a hefty 14.8 per cent alcohol, you feel the Cabernet Sauvignon tannins and the power of the Petit Verdot. It is a bit of a bruiser at this point and will need time to settle down in the bottle. Rich and potent black fruits reminiscent of Bing cherries, black currants, and blueberries with dark chocolate, spice, and savoury dried herbs. Youthful and rambunctious but has fine potential. I suggest five years in the bottle or serve with a slab of rare beef."

BC Living.ca - BC Wine 101: Holiday 2020 Edition

"1. Pop! Five must-have B.C. bubbles

Because nothing brings the happy like a bottle of bubbly.

...

Moon Curser Moonlit Frizzante 2019
I’m such a fan of Osoyoos’s Moon Curser Vineyards; they grow grape varieties that almost no one else does and they make such wonderful wine with 'em! This is their first sparkling and it’s a winner straight out of the gate. Super foamy with bags of lemon, almond and baked apples. It’s the perfect day drinker! Sold out at the winery, see if you can track it down at a wine store cos it’s fab!"
