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.

With a blend of 65% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, this complex Meritage contains estate-grown grapes along with grapes from vineyards in the Okanagan. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed, crushed, and cold soaked for 4 days before inoculation with select Bordeaux yeast strains. Pump overs were done every 4 hours to enhance colour and fruit characteristics. Each varietal was vinified and barrel matured separately for 15 months in a combination of 50% American oak barrels, and 50% French oak barrels. Our winemaker carefully crafted the final blend once the wine was removed from barrels.

Expressive and complex, this wine has deep and intensely aromatic notes of dark fruit, including plums, cranberries, and cassis, plus hints of vanilla on the nose. On the palate, this wine is well balanced with notes of leather, violets and five spice and it has a lengthy finish.

Pair this full-bodied red wine with grilled meats, classic beef burgers, or a rich, cheesy lasagna.

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.

This wine was bottle aged for 14 months before release.

With cool nights during ripening, the grapes were picked later in September at optimal ripeness. 50% were whole cluster pressed and 50% were crushed and destemmed and left on the skins for 4 hours before pressing, adding freshness and richness to the wine. Cold fermented with natural yeast, and then aged in French oak barrels for 9 months. 30% of the barrels were new, 30% 2nd fill, and 40% were neutral. Partial malolactic fermentation took place, adding complexity to the wine.

On the nose, citrus, stone fruit, roasted almonds, and hints of lemon zest dominate the aromatic profile of our elegant White Gold and on the palate, it shows a rich and creamy texture combined with a crisp acidity and well integrated 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 with risotto, a mushroom-based pasta or roasted chicken.

This wine is ready now, will peak by 2024 and can be aged till 2026.
