Quotidien Brut 2016 Reviews

90 points – John Schreiner – John Schreiner On Wine – August 2017 Heidi had worked as hard to make Quotidien Brut as if she had just bottle-fermented it. But she is nothing, if not determined. And she was determined to a wine where everything but the price reminded one of Champagne. Kurtis Kolt – Georgia […]

Plein de Vie Brut 2016 Reviews

90 points – John Schreiner – John Schreiner On Wine – August 2017 It begins with aromas of cherry and strawberry that are echoed in the flavours. The active mousse, achieved by gentle carbonation gives this a creamy texture. This is a very easy to drink sparkling rose with a crisp dry finish. 87 points – Treve Ring […]

The best Gewurz I’ve tasted form BC. 92 points – Beppi Crosariol – The Globe and Mail – September 2017 Opulent in texture and lavish in flavour, this […]

Un-Oaked Chardonnay 2016 Reviews

90 points – Rick Vansickle – Wines in Niagara – April 2017 A highly aromatic and pure expression of Chardonnay with ripe tropical fruits, apple and citrus notes on the nose. It maintains freshness on the palate with a range of tropical fruit flavours, pineapple and touch of citrus to go with subtle minerality on the finish. A delight. […]

Muscat 2016 Reviews

91 points – Beppi Crosariol – Globe and Mail – May 2017 If one could bottle the sun, it might taste something like this. Light-bodied (at just 10.8 per cent alcohol) yet bursting with floral-spice aromatics and crisp, slightly off-dry flavours of peach, lemonade and white table grapes. Hello, summer. 89 points – John Szabo – Wine Align – April 2017 A […]
