Bitter lemon, elderflower and pear fill this light, natural, biodynamic pet nat from Campania. Brusque acidity lifts Fiano's soft palate to a faintly humming, sour citrus finish. No sulfur, undisgorged and unfiltered, the winery recommends mixing the lees into the wine (tilt upside down gently a few times) before opening. La Matta means 'the crazy one' in Italian; perhaps a few folks thought Elisabetta and husband Pasquale were a touch crazy to leave their home in Naples to take over her aging father's farm in Torchiara. But the couple wanted to raise their children connected to the land and now are in charge of farming the 5.5 ha of biodynamic vines on the 14 ha property.
This pale ale is soured with lactobacillus for a kefir-like tangy goodness. Then it’s dry hopped, giving it aromas of fresh orange peel and lemons. Hazy, tangy and bubbly, it’s a great replacement for mimosas at your next brunch.
Lively green colour with intensely aromatic gooseberry and grassy herbal scents carrying through on the slightly lean palate. Chalky mineral, mouth puckering acidity and a suggestion of passion fruit complete the picture.
This Melon de Bourgogne has a lovely nose of lemon curd, grapefruit, lime zest and lifted white flowers. It’s pure and fresh on the palate with lemon-lime, apple and pear flavours is a fresh and lively style. Bring on the oysters!
From one of the south Okanagan’s rising stars. Whole bunch-pressed primary fermentation, back blended with the previous vintage of Chardonnay. Pale salmon in the glass, floral perfume; some strawberry on top before red fruit and slightly chalky palate through a well-textured finish.
Blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot yields forward blue fruit and vanilla followed by plum and red berry notes, with solid mouthfeel and moderate tannins, just enough complexity to keep things interesting for braised meats and pasta.
Clear medium-deep yellow. Medium-intensity nose of Granny Smith apple and a bit of spice, reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. Light-bodied with high and crisp acidity over refreshing lemon and tangerine flavours. Great value for the deck on a hot summer day. Drink immediately.
