Dark ruby. Black fruits (blackberry, cassis), liquorice and a little oak. Velvety mouthfeel; the barely rough tannins are coated with fruity extract. Finish is long and balanced.
What a gorgeous wine, with a nose of cassis, blackcurrants, plums, earth, sweet oak spice and mocha. It is textured on the palate with layers of concentrated dark fruits, chalky tannins, chocolate-mint notes, lavish spice and a long, long finish. Serve with rack of lamb.
Sourced from 28-year-old estate vines, the style smacks of the Okanagan: fragrant, fruity, crisp, refreshing. Look for sweet orange, tart apple and tangy peach flavours, followed by a dry, palate-cleansing, lime-toned finish. It’s juicy yet vibrant, so a worthy companion for the salad course.
Ruby core with garnet rim. Wide ranging aromas include raspberry, vanilla, cloves, graphite and forest floor. Generous, round palate with an elegant balance of juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins. Almond notes on the finish. 100% Sangiovese. A fine partner with game meats.
Very pale yellow. Minerally (flint), delicate notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Ripe taste, sharp acidity contrasted by a round mid-palate. Overall quite satisfying with a very good persistence. Drink or hold up to 2 years.
Easy drinking sparkler with rose petal, tropical and honey notes up front before a light and lively palate of orchard fruits, peach and lychee with a touch of ginger spice before a clean finish. Think mild curries or just plain fun sipping.
This rouge is a blend of 40-year-old Grenache and Syrah vines from family farms, half of which is declassified Villages fruit. Youthful cherry is roughed just the right amount with sanded wood and scented with cedar shavings. Cherry, black raspberry is raspy on the palate with drying, gritty tannins to a tight finish. This rustic red is best suited to grilled sausages.
