3-6 pm Fri & Sat Tasting New Wines, New Wineries and Award Winners

3-6 pm Friday Jan 18 & Saturday Jan 19 tasting feature

Come taste these new wines, new wineries and a Lt. Gov. Award-Winner:

Eau Vivre 2009 Gewürztraminer
Intense nose of white flowers, orange blossoms and candied fruit. The palate is equally balanced with soft acids and lush fruit mouth-feel, produced in the classic dry but fruity style. Designed with medium body and plush, rich fruit this wine has the profile of a much sweeter wine. This small lot production of 2009 Gewürztraminer is made from 100% Similkameen grapes. With only 200 cases produced this very popular wine is building a following of fans and will surely sell out. $17

Gold Hill 2011 Pinot Gris
The wine is layered with aromas of pear, apricots, citrus and hints of grassy notes. This balanced wine finishes clean with after notes of honeydew and pear. Enjoy with seafood and light cream pasta dishes. BC VQA Seafood, light cream pasta dishes.$18

Eau Vivre 2009 Pinot Noir
Winner of the 2012 Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in British Columbia Wines.  This Pinot has serious charm and flavor on both the nose and palate. Aromas of cigar box, beet root and dried flowers only help elevate the spiciness and cherry flavors on the palate. Cranberry and oak also play a lesser role on the finish, but help enhance the length and polish the tannin. $19

Garry Oaks 2008 Zweigelt Zeta
Lush, fruit-forward red made from estate-grown Zweigelt grapes. We are one of the few wineries in British Columbia (and the first on the Coast) to grow this exciting Austrian varietal. Black cherry, floral and spice flavours are complemented by vanilla notes. Zeta pairs well with dishes that have sweet-spicy or fruit-based sauces (e.g. BBQ ribs, Moroccan lamb), salads with balsamic dressing, or strong cheeses (especially blue). No mistaking the gender of this wine (we call it wine with cleavage). $22.99

Vista Doro 2007 D’oro
“The complexity of tastes in this port-like wine are apparent with the first sip. Fraser Valley walnuts, picked green and long-soaked in an Okanagan gamay brandy begin the taste experience. Cigar box, medicine chest, shoe leather—there’s a warm and slightly-spicy cherry roundness to this rich mélange of organics, all carried in a Bordeaux-type blend of Okanagan merlot, cabernet franc and marachel foch harvests that linger long on the palate.” Duncan Holmes $49.43
