Fraser Valley Tour
2014

Township7 ~ Langley

1152 16TH AVE (AT 212TH ST),
LANGLEY, BC V2Z 1K3

 

The one thing I have come to really enjoy is the wonderful greeting and hospitality we receive from the staff and manager Jason at Township7. They make you feel glad you came and it's a happy fun atmosphere. The wines are rather good too.

Located in the beautiful south Langley countryside in a quaint building reminiscent of the many riding stables in the neighbourhood. Open year round, with self guided tours and wine tastings daily, plus numerous year round events.

They have a second location on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan; this is where most of the grapes are grown and the wine created. Bradley Cooper is the Winemaker.

This was our second visit in the last week the first was simply a shopping trip. This time we had a scheduled tasting with the knowledgeable and friendly winery Manager, Jason. What a very pleasant experience it was.

The Wines

Township7 produces quite an amazing cellar of wines. There is a wine for everyone.

2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Comes from famed Blue Terrace vineyards near Oliver. A bit of Muscat has been added to the wine. It begins with a nice aroma of kiwi and passions fruits, the wine tingles the throat with a wonderful smooth flavour. Followed by a lingering finish. 91

2012 Chardonnay

From the Sundial Vineyards of Harry McWatters. A nice wine you will enjoy and perhaps cellar for a few years. 88

2012 Pinot Gris

From the vineyards of Naramata Bench a very nice aroma melon and apple A good patio wine. 86

2012 Rosé

A Chardonnay Rosé with fresh fruity flavours especially cherry. 88

2010 Merlot

A young wine with nice aromas, bluebberry dominates, as merlots go it's almost perfect. Perhaps Township7's most popular wine. A gold award winner at the 2013 All Canadian Wine Championship. Bob 90 Barb 93

Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Ah! A very good, very smooth wine aged for 24 months in the barrel. From Blue Terrace Vineyard, on the famed Black Sage Road. I must buy this wine for sure. 94

The Reserve 7 Meritage

Without a doubt it's the best wine in the Cellar one Bradley Cooper can be proud of, crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a "field blend" of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Very rich good aroma, nice flavours. A wine that says, "drink me." 95

All in all a very impressive cellar of wines. Township 7 with its new tasting room and friendly staff is a *must* stop on your Fraser Valley visit.
