Lake Breeze Pinot Blanc 2017 

Lake Breeze Pinot Blanc is intensely fruity and aromatic. It has been our signature wine for many years and is a consistent award winner. The flavours and aromas of crisp apple and tropical fruits are complimented by more flinty notes from the fruit grown in the Similkameen valley. The result is a wine with great complexity and balance. Consistently clean, crisp and fresh.

Noble Ridge Stony Knoll Chardonnay 2016 

Tantalizing aromas of clementine, lemon drop and orange blossom are complimented by flavors of Granny Smith Apple, ripe white peaches and refreshing citrus zest. 

Lake Breeze Spice Jar 2016 

Lake Breeze offers this white blend based on tough-to-pronounce grapes like Gewürztraminer, Ehrenfelser, Schönberger and Viognier. Easier to say is: delicious! Based on a taste profile that is fresh, fruity and floral. Sip, pair with spicy dishes or Thai noodle. 

Hester Creek Character Red 2016 

This estate blend is unique to Hester Creek. Our Character Red includes a Northern Italian Merlot clone grown on our estate since 1968, that lends it an Old World, saddle-leather softness alongside heady notes of white pepper, violet and allspice. This wine pairs perfectly with earthy, cool-weather dishes: think sautéed wild mushrooms or a deeply flavoured stew. 

Lake Breeze Meritage 2016 

A rich, full-bodied red showing a complex combination of red and black fruits with hints of vanilla and spice. Well-structured with ripe tannin, this wine is drinking beautifully now but will continue to improve for 5 to 10 years.

Cabernet Franc (38%), Merlot (32%), Malbec (19%), Cabernet Sauvignon (11%)

Noble Ridge Reserve Meritage 2014 

This full-bodied Bordeaux style blend presents notes of ripe dark berries, blueberry and blackberry aromas are complimented by subtle hints of violet.

The fruit on the nose is beautifully balanced with deeply complex layers of cassis, stewed dark fruit, anise and savory tobacco on the palate. Good, firm tannins linger on the back palate, speaking to the sophistication and age ability of this wine. It will cellar gracefully for 8-10 years.
