Straw yellow with green reflections. Quite oaky, menthol and citrus complete the complex nose. Lively acidity, fatty and some bitterness in the finish. Well done if you like the exuberant style.
Medium ruby. Red fruits (ripe strawberries) with hints of rubber and fennel. Light to medium body, nice fresh, fruity taste. Soft texture that turns a little dry in the short but clean finish. Ready to drink.
Sourced from fruit grown in the Black Sage Bench vineyard from the classic 2012 vintage in the Okanagan Valley, the nose shows rich cherry, mulled plums, anise, currants, saddle leather and layers of oak spice. It’s juicy on the palate with rich red fruits, firm tannic structure and lovely toasted baking spices all balanced out by a firm beam of acidity.
Lifted dark berry and earthy notes, followed by a medium-bodied palate with damson and cassis wrapped in juicy acidity with some pleasing savoury and spice notes to close.
Aromatic qualities reveal green apple, mineral and a hint of pear. The same themes come through on the enticingly creamy palate with stony minerality on the finish.
Savoury fruit-peel aromas with intense scents of peach, pear, citrus and Golden Delicious apple. Rich pear compote and honey-melon flavours wrap around a waxy texture. Apricot and golden raisins resonate on the spicy finish. Enjoy with seafood crepes.
