On Saturday Aug 31st, we will celebrate a different Rosé by pouring 3 distinctly different Rose’s, as well as a New Arrival Eau Vivre 2010 Malbec, and also Township 7 2009 Merlot to go with our Recipe of the week!

Le Vieux Pin 2011 Vaila Rosé $22.00
Made with the Burgundian method of Saigne (literally to bleed) this rose is produced from free run juice from Pinot Noir grapes and entirely steel tank aged. It is a fun, delicate wine absolutely perfect for the summer. The 2011 Vaïla presents a pale salmon colour and explosive aromas of rhubarb, pink grapefruit and the amazing bright red fruit BC rose are famous for,

Moon Curser 2012 Nothing to Declare Rosé $21.90
This is a light-bodied, delicate and vividly colored wine made of Syrah. On the nose the Rosé exhibits intense aromas of fresh and candied red berries with hints of and cassis and fennel seed.  On the palate the wine is not dissimilar to the nose, quite crisp, but the candied fruit gives way to fresh red field berries with raspberry being the dominant characteristic. In the background, slight savoury notes of tobacco and pencil lead shavings.The wine has a crisp finish with good finesse and length.

lastellina

La Stella 2011 LaStellina Rosato $20.90
LaStellina is a Rosato with personality and elegance made from %100 Merlot. Off dry and aromatic. This style of Rosato will complement any hot summer day on the patio.

Eau Vivre 2010 Malbec $22.00
Ripe and dark in colour, this 100% Similkameen Valley wine has intense aromas of fresh tobacco, strawberry, raspberry and licorice root.  The palate is layered with saddle leather, black cherry and dark chocolate flavours.  This highly popular wine was aged in a combination of seasoned French and American oak barrels that allow the fruit profile to show its full potential.

Township 7 Vineyards 2009 Merlot $24.99
Our most popular red, this classic Merlot is also a Gold award winner at the 2013 All Canadian Wine Championship. This wine completely refutes the idea that Merlots are meek. It’s a big wine that demonstrates the complexity of south Okanagan terroir with plenty of depth and structure

Spierhead Winery, Friday Aug 16th 3-6pm

Friday Aug 16th 3-6pm

2012 Riesling $21.87
This taut Riesling yields unmistakable flavours of green apple and lime.  Its zippy, citrus backbone is complemented by a clean steely finish.
“Flinty with lemon-lime citrus notes aplenty, this balanced wine hails from East Kelowna yet adheres to the Niagra Riesling formula of matching sweetness to acid while keeping the alcohol low and maintaining a light and mineraly texture. No clunky sugar and alcohol influenced palate here. Just clean, crisp fruit and terroir driven flavours; a refreshingly honest approach. Should develop unctuous nectar flavours if given time to mature, though tasting great in its youthful state today. 89+ pts.” Liam Carrier – ICON Wine

2011 Chardonnay $21.87
After full cluster pressing and low temperature fermentation, this estate wine was aged for ten months; 20% in new French oak barrels with the balance in stainless steel. Our Chardonnay shows hints of apricot and other cool climate orchard fruits. 250 cases produced.
“An appealing, fruit forward Chardonnay, this begins with citrus armonas, leading to flavours of lime, guava, melon and peach, with cloves on the lingering finish. 89 pts.” John Schreiner on Wine

2011 Pusuit $23.90
This Merlot based Bordeaux blend was aged in 100% French oak for 18 months.  Its ripe fruit flavours and soft tannins make it accessible now while maintaining the ability to age.  490 cases were produced.

road13

2011 Riesling Home Vineyards $18.88
On the nose the wine shows restrained notes of Meyer lemon. A well defined palate with flavors of candied lemon and wild honey. It shows fantastic richness on the palate despite the bright acidity, a phenomenon that can be explained by the low yield, old vines and great soil. The finish is dry and persistent

2012 Pinot Gris Mitchell’s Vineyard $21.00
A deep gold colour from the summer sunshine.  This classic Alsacian style Pinot Gris is rich and the nose has vibrant aromas of honeysuckle, earth, honey and red grapefruit.  The palate is voluptuous, filled with flavours of fresh pear, flinty minerality and wild honey.  The wine has great balance, shows a sense of place and offers a long and luscious finish

2011 Syrah Malbec $25.00
Dark ruby-violet hue from the grape bunches being well exposed to the sunshine. The nose is lifted with complex notes of blackberries, blueberries, pepper, smoke, chocolate, vanilla pod and cigar box. The palate is round, rich and inviting. The wine delivers gorgeous flavours of blueberry, violet, black currant and a long spicy finish. The 2011 Syrah-Malbec is a great example of how those two varieties can work together to deliver a seductive and harmonious blend.

2011 Seventy-Four K $24.99
A beautiful dark ruby colour. Complex aromas of ripe prune, blackberries, mocha, peach and violet burst out of the glass as soon as the wine is poured. The rich palate is full of generous flavours of mulberry, dark plum, spice, chocolate and orange blossom. A multilayered wine that has character, structure – with fine ripe tannins – and a sense of place from its Southern Okanagan origin. The long and lingering finish simply doesn’t want to stop.
