Unsworth Earns 5 Medals at the 2023 National Wine Awards of Canada

Unsworth Earns 5 Medals at the 2023 National Wine Awards of Canada

In WineAlign's recent series of announcements on the 2023 National Wine Awards of Canada winners, Unsworth stepped up to the podium with 5 medals:

2021 Pinot Noir: 92 points

Review from Evan Goldstein, Master Sommelier: "Riper red fruit aromatics and a kiss of mintines. Crunchy and bright with nuances of sandalwood and conifer." 
SHOP status: available now for purchase

2018 Cuvée de l'île*: 91 points

Review from Jon Szabo, Master Sommelier: "Clean and yeasty in the traditional method. Pronounced, moderately aggressive bubbles, yeasty finish. Good complexity, quite dry and crisp. Good length. Well made, good quality."
SHOP status: Released in the 2022 UV Wine Club Collector case; available for purchase in fall 2023 (pending remaining stock)

2022 Rosé: 89 points

Review from Michaela Morris: "As delicate in hue as it is in aromas Unsworth’s dainty Pinot Noir rosé hints demurely at cherry blossoms and cherry pits. While not terribly concentrated, it is light and lithe with a stony, steely backbone and zippy lemony acidity prolonging the finish. This intentional and sincere rosé with modest alcohol will deliver plenty of summer sipping satisfaction."
SHOP status: available now for purchase

2022 Sunnydale Vineyard Rosé: 89 points
Review from Sharon McLean: "A delicate, juicy rosé that shows restrained orchard fruits wrapped round a core of minerality."
SHOP status: sold out

2021 Chardonnay: 88 points
Review from Heather Rankin: "A nuttiness and oak spice define the nose with fleshy apple notes. On the palate, rounded fruit framed with supporting structure and cleansing acidity."
SHOP status: available in the 2023 fall UV Wine Club Collector case
