See Ya Later NV Sparkling Brut                        
This fine wine is reminiscent of freshly baked bread rounded out by crisp orchard fruit. A lively acidity is a welcoming refreshment to the palate while the finish is full of citrus flavours and a hint of cream.  A celebration simply on its own or pairs well with smoked salmon or fresh seafood. For something different, enjoy this wine with prosciutto and a mixed fruit plate. $22.99

Quails’ Gate 2011 Chenin Blanc
This Chenin Blanc opens with a rush of exuberant fruit; zesty lemon and lime with notes of melon and passion fruit that linger on the finish. Fresh, crisp and racy with a genuine fruit sweetness that balances the firm, natural acidity. The intense citrus notes make this wine a perfect match for oysters and shellfish $18.99

Nk’Mip Cellars 2009 Qwam Qwmt Pinot Noir
This elegant Pinot Noir weaves rich rhubarb and field strawberry on the nose. Layers of pepper and spice seamlessly blend with earthy characteristics, influenced by balanced tannins and a delicate oak, leaving a long tasty fruit finish $30

Cassini Cellars 2009 Syrah
Smooth, complex balanced and elegant. A spicy and floral wine rich in blackberry and currant, with hints of pepper and licorice with a nice full bodied finish. A French style wine with soft vanilla and toffee notes that complement the fruit with medium to firm tannins.  Pairs well with roasted beef, grilled striploin or stakes, chicken, pork, grilled lamb and rich game meats and medium and strong cheeses. $33.90
