Orofino Hendsbee Riesling 2016
Dry, fresh acidity with notes of lime and minerality. Seriously good and highly concentrated Riesling. An Orofino classic.BRONZE MEDAL – 2018 All Canadian Wine Championships 92 POINTS – John Schreiner
Spearhead Pinot Gris 2017This pale straw coloured Pinot Gris has lots of body. It is a rich, well balanced wine, with plenty of freshness to match its tropical flavours.
Monte Creek Pinot Noir 2016
We used French oak barrels to age this beauty to create a distinctive wine. Sweet floral notes greet you as you open the bottle and take your first inhale. Its medium body and smooth tannins give way to bright acidity and flavours of baked blueberries, strawberry preserves, cola, and toasted walnuts. The silky presence in the palate allows this wine to drink well now. The structured tannin promises graceful aging through 2028 and beyond. Enjoy with salmon, mushroom dishes, roast duck breast or pink peppercorn steak.

Bordertown Cabernet Franc 2016
Cabernet Franc has quickly established itself as a ‘go-to’ grape in the south Okanagan. Once known chiefly as a component grape for classic Bordeaux blends, it has now broken out on its own and is loved for its unique charms. These include deep expressive flavours of tobacco, dark spice, herbaceous green pepper, and a tiny hint of mint. All of this is achieved while maintaining supple tannins and dark berry flavours. The finish is pleasant and lengthy.
Orofino Red Bridge Red 2016
Rich notes of cherry, chocolate and liquorice. Smooth and full. Bordeaux varietals with the added depth of Syrah. This wine spent 19 months in American and French barrels. Bottled unfixed and unfiltered. 100% Similkameen fruit. Drinking great now and will improve over the next 5-8 years.
