Underdog wines

St Hubertus Riesling 2014

Juicy, round and ripe with peach, pear, red apple and an ample dusting of spicy Szechuan peppercorn. A thicker film of honey coats the palate of this fuller bodied, off-dry white. A juicy swell on the finish encourages glass after glass - and at an alluring 11.5 percent, it's easy to do

Moraine Riesling 2016

Taste Profile:  Find hints of dried apricots and orchids. The natural acidity of this wine is balanced well by the natural residual sugars.

Food Pairing: Dare to pair this bold white next to some red curry chicken, spiced duck leg, or some stuffed pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon.

Therapy Riesling 2016

On the nose this wine has intense aromas of honeycomb, flint and fresh pineapple. Matched with flavors of golden apples, lime, honey, and ginger, which linger on the palate. The bright acidity helps balance the residual sugar and mid-palate weight.

Hillside Gamay Noir 2014 

This is a medium-bodied, fruit forward wine. Raspberry and cedar notes highlight the aroma, while the palate delivers a fine, silky texture. Gamay is the principle grape of the Beaujolais region—known for producing early release fun fruity wine. Made here in a more serious style, with barrel aging for 8 months to round out and refine the mid-palate structure.

Joie Gamay Noir 2015

This Gamay is rich, dark, meaty and savoury, reminiscent of the great Cru Beaujolais of Morgon and Moulin-a-Vent. It is from a single vineyard site on the clay banks of the Naramata Bench. This wine is a great example of low-cropped Gamay grown on the right site. It demonstrates the true potential of Gamay in the Okanagan.

Rust Gamay Noir 2017

Delicate floral aromas with subtle earthy notes. On the palate, a youthful fruit expression of red berries, red plum, with a long finish of vanilla and soft tannins.
