Arrowleaf Summer Storm Sparkling 2017
This brut sparkling Rosé has aromas of strawberry, rhubarb and pink grapefruit. On the palate the aromas are intensified with a touch of sweetness before a refreshingly clean and dry finish.
Bartier Bros. Rose 2018
Grapefruit, cranberry, citrus, rose petal, crisp acidity with mineral finish. Both white grapes and red grapes were hand harvested.
Gewürztraminer (47%), Chardonnay (41%), Merlot (12%)
Lunessence Sauvignon Blanc Muscat 2016
Fragrant nose. Pineapple and tropical flavours. Finish tastes sweet without being sweet. Very enjoyable on a warm evening. It has lime on the nose and palate and a touch of spice.
Lake Breeze Spice Jar 2017
A wonderfully aromatic and balanced off-dry wine. Floral and fruity aromas dominate, followed by a hint of sweetness and spice on the palette that lends itself perfectly to spicier foods.
Gewürztraminer (45%), Ehrenfelser (30%), Schönberger (15%), Viognier (10%)
Orofino Gamay Noir 2018
This Gamay is an homage to our love affair with Beaujolais. Meant to be highly drinkable and very food-friendly. Drink this all year long at both summer BBQs and with winter braised dishes. It is fermented on the skins and then hand-punched until fermentation is complete. It is then gently pressed off the skins and put into older French barrels. The wine is then carefully racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Very minimal intervention throughout the winemaking process. Light in colour and bursting with flavour.
