Pepperwood Grove Old Vine Zinfandel comes from Don Sebastiani & Sons. Made from 100 per cent old vine zinfandel grapes it shows off a medley of berry fruit flavours and aromas – raspberry, blackberry, ripe plum, prune and dried figs are most obvious. Under the fruit, there are tantalizing notes of vanilla and caramel – and at an unbelievably affordable price.
Abels Tempest Pinot Noir
Heemskerk is Treasury Wines’ Tasmanian brand producing seriously smart Tasmanian wines. From Australia’s dependably coolest growing region. Heemskerk’s Abel’s Tempest Pinot Noir has a medley of bright, sassy cherry berry fruit, a sprinkling of plums and prunes, and spicy hazelnut aromas that follow though onto the tongue over earthy mushroom and truffles.
Unsworth Petit Milo
On the nose Unsworth Petit Milo is reminiscent of ripe pink grapefruit, highlighted with aromas of white peach and lime. The palate reveals depth and richness with flavours of hard lemon candy and hints of guava. Made from 100 per cent Petit Milo grapes, this wine highlights the exceptional character of our region’s unique terroir with elegant aromatics and seductive tropical fruit finish.
Saccheto Fili Prosecco
Saccheto Fili Prosecco flaunts its floral aromas and crisp lemon meringue fruitiness. Using the latest methods, including a very gentle horizontal press to extract only the clearest juice from the grapes and slow, temperature controlled fermentation to lock in all their subtle aromas, this one’s a winner!
40 Knots L'Orange
New and very much in a class of its own 40 Knots L’Orange Schonberger harks back to traditional natural winemaking methods. Using absolutely no additives, this Schonberger was kept on skins for fermentation and aging, creating a white wine with a deeply orange colour, surprisingly brisk tannins, a sturdy structure and immense complexity. Under a nutty almost sherried dried apricot set of flavours, there are undertones of honeysuckle and a bouquet of savouryfennel and olive subtleties.
Bench 1775 Syrah
Here in British Columbia we’ve recently been acknowledged internationally as a hot-bed of world-class Syrah. Bench 1775 Syrah is grown in Oxbow Vineyard, on the original ‘Golden Mile’ in Osoyoos. This darkly ripe expression of Syrah simmers with sage and sun-baked anise, savoury herb sliding into dusty new leather and bright blueberry fruit notes
