PLATINUM AWARD & 94 POINTS at the National Wine Awards of Canada 2022.

 

 

Made from Pinot Noir grown at the Flaherty Vineyard in Naramata, a long-time grape grower for Fort Berens. This Pinot Noir was fermented in small tanks for lots of skin contact. Only pump overs were used to ensure this wine is not over extracted. This enhanced the fruit character and colour in the wine. Then aged for 10 months in 25% new and 75% neutral oak barrels.

Tasting notes

This ruby red wine features notes of sweet red cherries and raspberry and has hints of clove, liquorice, and earthy notes. This medium-bodied Pinot Noir has a soft tannin structure and delicate flavours of red berries on the palate.

This food-friendly Pinot Noir is a great match with salmon, roasted chicken, or pasta dishes.

This wine was made with estate-grown grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard in Lillooet, as well as grapes from Oliver BC. The grapes were hand harvested late in the season for optimal ripeness. The extended hanging time created a ripe, smooth tannin structure. Pump overs and post fermentation maceration ensured good colour and tannins. The wine was barrel-aged for 15 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels (new and neutral).

On the nose, this dark burgundy wine has notes of blackberry, dark plum, cassis, and violets. This elegant, medium-to-full-bodied wine is soft with pronounced tannins and beautiful blackberry flavours, and a velvety soft, fresh finish. Enjoy this wine with roasted pork or a tomato-based curry.

Ready to drink now, or with proper cellaring, this wine can be cellared till 2027 and beyond.

A blend of 88% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc, this complex Meritage contains estate-grown grapes along with grapes from vineyards in the Okanagan. Each fraction of grapes was fermented and aged separately. Pump-overs were used to extract colour and to create a fresh, fruit forward wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in 1000 litre tanks to increase the skin to juice ratio. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 15 months, and then blended and further aged in bottle before release.

Expressive and complex, this wine has deep and intensely aromatic notes of raspberries, plum, and vanilla spice. On the palate, this wine is well balanced with notes of leather, violets and five spice.

Pair this full-bodied red wine with roasted pork or chicken.

Vineyard: Dry Creek Vineyard, Fort Berens Estate Winery in Lillooet

The fruit for this Riesling Reserve was sourced from a special block in our Dry Creek Vineyard, that was cropped low to produce a rich and concentrated wine. The grapes were hand harvested and whole cluster pressed before settling. After racking, the wine was naturally fermented cold for 7 weeks in a stainless-steel tank. This wine was bottle aged for 14 months before release.

Savour tropical notes of apricot, peaches, lychee, and elderflower in this balanced and fruit-forward wine. On the palate, enjoy the round and fresh sensation of this just slightly off-dry Riesling. It finishes dry with light green apple and limestone notes.

Enjoy this very food-friendly wine on its own or with a wide variety of dishes from grilled chicken and grilled citrus shrimp to spicy stir fries.

This wine is ready to drink now, or with proper cellaring, you can age this wine until 2027.

Vineyard: Dry Creek Vineyard, Fort Berens Estate Winery in Lillooet

Made from 100% estate Chardonnay grapes, that were whole cluster pressed to ensure that we extracted only the best juice from the berries. After settling, the juice was racked into French oak barrels (17% new, 33% second fill) for natural fermentation. Partial malolactic fermentation followed. This vinification method creates more complex flavours in the wine. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months.

On the nose, roasted nuts, buttered toast, yellow papaya, and hints of lemon zest dominate the aromatic profile of our elegant White Gold. On the palate it shows a rich and creamy texture combined with a crisp acidity and well integrated toasted oak. This full-bodied and fresh Chardonnay has a beautiful, long finish.

The ideal pairing is with decadent dishes such as lobster or bacon wrapped scallops. Or try a pasta in a creamy mushroom sauce or with slow roasted chicken.

This wine is ready now and will peak by 2022. With proper cellaring, you can age this wine until 2026.
