Food Pairing Notes
Mellow acidity and full-flavour pairs well with aromatic dishes, especially spicy Thai and Indian curries.
40 Knots Ziggy Siegerrebe 2016 ($22.90). Siegerrebe, an under-appreciated white variety, is a godsend for the cooler vineyards on Vancouver Island and the Fraser Valley. An early ripening aromatic grape, Siegerrebe invariably delivers exuberant tropical aromas and flavors. This wine is an example: aromas and flavors of spice, grapefruit, and lime with a crisp, dry finish. 90.

Absolutely love this easy drinker. Can pair with food or open and enjoy on its own. Great in summer or winter!

Nice light wine, with earthy overtones. Very enjoyable to sit back and sip on the patio.

We had a fantastic tasting at the winery today, tasting 6 wines, we liked all of them , but the Sieg was the favourite. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. A lovely experience.

40 knots is one of our favorite wineries on Vancouver Island. We love pairing Sieg with seafood and lighter meals. It has a wonderful bouquet and goes down way to easy!

My son's favorite! It is a lovely dry wine. Great with food or on its own. Love this with seafood!

This year I really favoured the Sieg for its bold, refreshing taste. It paired well with grilled local oysters, fresh greens and roasted potatoes. A lovely white wine to have ready in the fridge for guests (if it lasts!).

My favorite white sipping wine. Goes well with dinner or appies or just by itself. Definitely worth trying….enjoy!
