From one of Osoyoos’s newest wineries, but also a long-established and respected grower for over 20 years: lifted citrus and orchard fruits before a crisp, well-balanced palate of green apple and grapefruit with some minerality leading to a clean, zesty close.
Clear deep plum-red. Aromas of blackberry, fig, coffee and vanilla from the American oak. Medium-bodied. Despite its age, the fruit is still fresh-tasting, showing prune, cherry and raisin flavours, but this should be drunk soon, preferably with rustic lamb sausage flavoured with garlic and lemon oil. Great value.
Warmly perfumed, concentrated dark fruit with elegant cinnamon and nutmeg spice on the nose open the way for powerful, well-integrated dark fruit, spice and dark chocolate in the mouth. The package is wrapped in supple tannins, finishing with well-integrated fruit, spice and deft supporting oak. Made in an approachable style, drinking well now.
A blend of Sonoma with 14% Napa fruit. Deep purple-ruby colour with a bouquet of plum, black cherry and mocha chocolate; full-bodied, mouth-filling flavours of black plum and cherry with chocolate notes finishing with ripe, grainy tannins.
Sourced mainly from the home estate Dry Creek Vineyard in Lillooet, with the balance of fruit from near Oliver. Lifted aromas of red berry fruit, toasty notes and spicy oak announce a blackberry and cassis toned palate with mulberry, vanilla and black pepper, before lingering oak spice to close.
Organic and unfiltered, this is a well-balanced Pale Ale with citrus, floral, malty and spicy aromas. Some citrus notes show up on the palate with nutty light bitterness on the finish. Easy-drinking style with some character.
The lemon meringue and coconut cream pie action captures the attention of both nose and palate. Tropical fruit flavours unfold to a generous spicy finish. Citrusy acidity balances luscious viscosity, showcasing the duality of cool vineyards with barrel fermentation. Savvy choice with cream-based seafood.
