This blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling was made to emphasize the bright fruit, floral aromatics, and crisp acidity that help define cool climate wine growing regions. It is light and fresh and finishes with a touch of sweetness. The wine is great on its own, or try paired with smoked salmon, Dim Sum, or a fresh goat cheese.
This wine was fermented in a second fill 1000L French oak foudre as well as two neutral 500L puncheons, and aged on lees for 7 months. The nose shows ripe citrus and tropical fruit notes with undertones of cut grass, flint, clove and smoke. The palate offers fruit and spice flavours with a round mouthfeel and lingering, dry finish.
This dry crisp Pinot Noir Rosé was made by gently pressing hand-picked, full clusters of ripe fruit to yield delicate juice that was fermented using wild yeast in neutral oak barrels and then aged on fine lees for four months. Brightly salmon-hued, this wine offers up aromas of sour cherries, strawberries and apple blossoms.
A delightful marriage of Riesling and Gewürztraminer, this aromatic white offers up the best that both grapes have to offer. Lifted tropical fruit notes are matched by a refreshing citrus character and bright acidity balanced by just a hint of sweetness on palate.
Appearing straw yellow with green highlights, this fresh, fruity wine shows lots of ripe stone fruit, gooseberry, citrus and sliced golden apple on the nose. The palate is lightly off-dry and echoes the bright fruit of the nose.
The wine is made from 1.5 tons of hand-picked Pinot Gris grapes from our Concession 5 vineyard that were destemmed, then hand bucketed into the underground tanks, sealed up and buried completely and allowed to ferment using wild yeast for 8 months through the winter months, then dug up in early June. The wine and skins were dug out by hand (with lots of student help!) and allowed to drain through a traditional vertical basket press. We used only the free run wine which was the most delicate/highest quality. We then racked twice to clarify and hand bottled the wine unfiltered on light lees to maintain freshness and texture, with no preservatives or other additives including SO2 - a truly natural wine.
This is not your typical Pinot Gris: it shows its genetic heritage with an almost Pinot Noir-like tannin structure and tawny-pink colour in the glass, with complex aromas of sour cherry, crabapple, strawberries, dried violets, button mushroom and herbs. The palate offers fine tannins, a silky, rounded mid-palate and a long dry finish.
This wine was made to showcase the attractive and pronounced aromatics commonly found in Muscat grape cultivars. It shows off loads of candied citrus, tropical fruit and perfumed floral aromas on the nose, while the palate is off-dry, zesty, light and refreshing.
This wine was fermented in a combination of small French Oak barriques and larger casks. The barrel lots were matured for 9 months on light lees before blending. The nose shows classic aromas of citrus, green mango, gooseberry, cut grass and lime leaves. The plaete is mid-weight, clean and refreshing with a great concentration of tropical fruit, grapefruit and herbaceous flavours. Try with grilled fish dishes, asparagus with hollandaise or goat chesses.
This rosé is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Gamay, made to show these grapes in a light and refreshing style. Produced in the Saignée method, this wine shows flavours of strawberries, raspberries, and watermelon, with a lightly sweet finish. Enjoy on it's own or with fresh summer salads, ship skewers, and soft cheeses.
The wine is made from 1.5 tons of 2017 Sauvignon Blanc grape that was destemmed, then hand bucketed into the underground tanks, sealed up and buried completely and allowed to ferment using wild yeast for 7 months through the winter months, then dug up in May after the ground thawed out. The wine and skins was dug out by hand (with lots of student help!) and allowed to drain through a traditional vertical basket press. We used only the free run wine which was the most delicate/highest quality. We then racked twice to clarify and hand bottled the wine unfiltered, with no preservatives or other additives including SO2 - a truly natural wine.
This is not your typical Sauvignon Blanc: the wine appears deep gold in the glass with complex aromas of ripe apple and jackfruit, dried chamomile, turned earth, honey and juniper. The palate offers dry, fine tannins and a fresh acidity.
