Award-Winning Wines

GOLD MEDAL and 92 points at the National Wine Awards of Canada in 2022.

Handcrafted from our finest 100% estate grown Merlot grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard. This Merlot Reserve is a blend of only 10 barrels of Merlot, with each barrel made by different coopers and different toasting levels to give a unique complexity of flavours. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. This medium-full bodied wine with ripe tannins can be enjoyed now or it can be cellared until 2025.
