Pinot Gris 2017
The nose expresses peaches and pear while the palate fills you mouth with flavours of melon and honey layered with spicy, earthy undertones, finishing with a hint of spice. A wonderful nose, well balanced and a beautiful finish.
The winemaking team sourced the best grapes from throughout the valley, from Oliver to Kelowna. They were kept separate until blending, when they were blind tasted and the top three were used to make this aromatic wine. It doesn’t happen every year, but this year and last year Wild Goose’s estate grapes were used as the anchor as they were deemed the best! This floral wine has a bouquet of grape-fruit, lilac, orange tea and cloves with elegant flavours of peach, apricot and spice all balanced by crisp acidity.
Mystic River Pinot Blanc 2017
Produced from a single estate vineyard, layers of top soil followed by pure gravel spells excellent terroir for this varietal. This small production wine has a nose that shows melon, grapefruit and vanilla, while the palate tastes of anise, pear and rose hips. The mouthfeel is balanced with a lengthy finish that goes on and on and on…
Red Horizon Meritage 2016
A classic Bordeaux style blend of estate grapes; Merlot,Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.This is our fourth vintage of Red Horizon and, definitely,our best yet! The powerful nose brings notes of blackcherry, tobacco and leather while the palate is lovinglycaressed with plum, spice, clove, cinnamon and sea salt. This meritage spent 14 months aging in American and French oak barrels, the silky tannins and suave acidity express the wine’s fine aging ability.
