91 points – John Schreiner – John Schreiner on Wine – October 2017 This is a blend of three clones from three different vineyards. That is not for volume but for complexity, which also applies to how the wine is made. It is aged 10 months in a mix of large casks, puncheons and barriques. […]

93 points – John Schreiner – John Schreiner on Wine – October 2017 The wine blends nine clones from two vineyards. The wine was aged eight months in medium toast French oak barrels (20% new, 30% second fill, 50% neutral). Dark in colour and concentrated in texture, this is a powerful, almost brooding, Pinot Noir that will age […]
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 […]
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 […]

92 points – John Schreiner – John Schreiner on Wine – October 2017 The style for this tangy and complex wine is the German Spätlese style. The trick is to use grapes from old vines (average age of 34 months) and to finish the wine with racy acidity (7.9 grams) balanced with good natural sugar (20 grams). That […]
92 points– John Schreiner– John Schreiner on Wine – October 2017 The model for this wine was an Alsace Grand Cru; and the wine is very well executed. It begins with intense aromas of lychee and spice, leading equally intense flavours of lychee and quince set against an unctuous texture. The wine is exquisitely balanced […]
93 points – John Schreiner – John Schreiner on Wine – October 2017 The winery describes this as a careful barrel selection “from our most prized blocks at our Joie-run vineyard sites on the Skaha Bluff and the Naramata Bench. The wine was fermented in French oak primarily with indigenous yeast. The wine begins with aromas of citrus […]
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. […]
