- 2019 Spring Bundle
A mixed six-pack bundle of our pre-released Spring Wines: Pinot Gris, Portage White, Rose, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Bubbles. Offering complimentary shipping in BC and Alberta and $15.00 flat rate shipping throughout the rest of Canada.
There is no better way to celebrate than opening a lively bottle of bubbles. In our first year, we have a lot to celebrate. Working with our aunt and uncle’s vineyard site in Cawston, we sourced gorgeous Chardonnay which, right off the press, was tasting like a bubble base: fresh fruit with bright acidity. We fermented in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of fruit and allowed the wine to sit on its fine lees for three months before bottling. Lemon, lime, pear, and concentrated red apples on the nose follow through to the palate along with ripe mango and melon. Moderate acidity lifts the juicy fruit for a relaxed, easily enjoyed, and versatile bubble for every occasion. Enjoy with salty snacks (think popcorn during movie night), grilled prawns, smoked salmon, or casual charcuterie.
- 2019 Pinot Gris
2019 was a great vintage for Pinot Gris! A moderate summer temperatures and a long, dry harvest produced clean and concentrated fruit with great character. Lean stone fruits layered with bright flowers on the nose that follow through to nectarine, apricot, and white peaches on the palate. Soft melon and flint on the finish. Mouthwatering acidity makes an easy match with salty cheeses and greasy indulgences.
- 2019 Portage White
Our intention with this wine, is to produce an easy summer sipper, something for people visiting our desert beach town to enjoy as an easy summer refreshment. 71% un-oaked Chardonnay and 29% Sauvignon Blanc create a clean, lively blend in perfect harmony. White peach and nectarine on the nose with subtle “grassiness”. Pineapple and grapefruit follow through to the palate with juicy lime and grannysmith apple, precise acidity and a long finish. Try this wine with prawn or vegetable tempura, parmesan-crusted halibut, goat cheese tarts, or anything briny.
- 2019 Sauvignon Blanc
Fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from our family vineyard on the east bench in Osoyoos, planted in 1998. We conducted several picks in 2019, harvesting separately for ripeness and acidity. Our hard work paid off: the fruit coming into the crushpad was gorgeous. Fresh and vibrant, flowery orange blossom, nectarine and grapefruit on the nose with just a kiss of mineral. A mouthwatering palate with juicy lemon and lime, pineapple and white peach. A quintessential seafood wine. Pair with oysters in the half shell, sushi, poke bowls, grilled trout, salmon gravlax or enjoy as an apéritif.
- 2019 Rosé
A tasty blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Cabernet Franc. Tarty cherries, strawberries, and dirty raspberries on the nose. A touch of creaminess. Vibrant, red berry palate, orange and rhubarb supported by creamy mouthfeel and surprisingly long finish. Enjoy in the long days of summer, with grilled salmon, BBQ pork or chicken sausages, cured meats, or roasted beets.
- 2018 Chardonnay
We are a big fan of the complexity and versatility of Chardonnay. In 2018 we had the opportunity to work with some deeply concentrated fruit, coming from our family’s vineyard site in the Similkameen. Rich, concentrated, and a great vintage: We couldn’t resist. Juicy red apple, pineapple and melon on the nose balanced with toasted coconut and butterscotch. Expect tonnes of concentrated fruit on the palate with a smooth buttery finish. A creamy, voluptuous chardonnay such as this pairs best with mushroomy risotto, scallops, potted salmon, roasted chicken, poached eggs, or roasted shellfish.
- 2016 Portage Red
A robust blend of 44% Cabernet Franc, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, aged 24 months in neutral American and French oak to showcase the voluptuous fruit-forward potential of our south Okanagan vineyard sites.
- 2016 Syrah
Aged in American oak for 24 months, expect playful juxtaposition between lively white pepper and serious dark fruit: juicy cherry and blackberry.
- 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Sourced from our established estate vineyard planted in 1999 and tucked into new American oak for 24 months. Deeply concentrated and delicious, ripe plums, licorice and salty leather.
- 2016 Cabernet Franc
Showcasing the natural fruit and rich, earthy textures of our estate fruit, our Cabernet Franc was tucked into neutral French and American oak for 24 months. Ripe cherries and violets make this wine an easy match for anything grilled, braised, smoked, or just tasty on its own.
