Baco Noir & Back Ribs

Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery is the torch bearer for the Baco Noir grape variety in the Ontario wine industry. This hybrid variety, with origins in France, has proven itself to be an easy to grow grape that requires no pampering to produce a range of high quality characterful red wines. They can range from bright fruit driven to very serious with good aging potential. Henry of Pelham’s entry level Baco, as it is affectionately referred to, is deep ruby red with hints of purple. The aroma is an interplay between smoke, spice and cocoa. The palate is dry with a medium body and smoky, wild berry nuances underpinned by a subtle refreshing acidity.

The wine’s wild berry and smoky notes will blend right into the perfect match – saucy BBQ pork back ribs. Slathering the grilling meat with a sauce typically made up of brown sugar, molasses, tomato paste and apple cider vinegar results in a tender, fall-off-the-bone juiciness beckoning to be paired with glasses of Baco Noir. (At blogger Harry’s home, we often take a short cut and regularly pick up boxes of very reasonably priced Montana’s BBQ & Bar brand pork back ribs at our favourite supermarket.)
