A platinum award-winner at the BC Wine Awards, this is consistently one of Canada’s top sparkling wines showing fresh apple, citrus and spice with racy acidity and a long finish.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. It’s what I would call an all-year-round rosé, not restricted to the summer months. Light pinkish-orange in colour, it has a nose of wild strawberries with mineral and floral notes to give it complexity. Medium-bodied and dry, it offers mouth-freshening flavours of strawberries and raspberries carried on lively acidity.
Reddish-tinged mid-brown colour showing nutty, almost smoky toasted malt aromas with softly rounded dried fruit and chocolate sweetness on the palate. A gentle touch of nutty burnt-toast bitterness on the finish.
Ruby-garnet. Black fruits, smoke, spices and dried herbs from the local garrigue. Full-bodied, warm, intense flavour with slightly bitter tannins. This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault has a taste reminding of cooked fruits. A hearty wine for game-based dishes or cassoulet.
Bright and layered aromas and flavours of plum, blackberry, liquorice, tar, earth, savoury herbs and mineral, a tight core and long fresh finish. A field blend of Pais, Carménère, Carignan, Malbec and Syrah.
From vines grown on rocky, Stemwinder soils close to a super-heated rock face, in one of the best of recent vintages. Aged in large French and American barrels and large French oak vats. Lifted red and black fruit with savoury notes before a well-structured palate of damson, blueberry, spice and smoky hints, with that definitive Similkameen mineral core and a lengthy finish all wrapped in firm but approachable tannins. Excellent value.
A blend of 60 percent Ortega with 40 percent Siegerrebe lures with seductive rose petal hints and orange blossom on the nose, before a complex blend of grapefruit and citrus notes almost reminiscent of Riesling, which is a parent of Siegerrebe. Superbly focused and balanced with lingering, juicy acidity.
