Join us Saturday from 3-6pm as we welcome Arrowleaf Cellars.
Margrit and Joe Zuppiger immigrated from Switzerland to Canada in 1986. Their son Manuel went back to Switzerland to train in winemaking. Very much a family run business, this winery is a must to taste.
2011 Arrowleaf Bacchus
Bacchus is a Riesling X Sylvaner X Mueller-Thurgau cross that produces lively, aromatic wines that are naturally low in alcohol. The variety excels in cool climates and it has thrived on the upper bench of the vineyard at Arrowleaf. Boasting 26 year old vines, this wine has fresh floral citrus and floral aromas. Crisp, off-dry and flavourful on the palate.
2011 Snow Tropics Vidal
Just arrived in store yesterday! If this wine is close to being anything the 2010 was, wow! We are looking so forward to tasting this wine.
2011 Arrowleaf Pinot Gris
The locations for these grapes are situated on westerly slopes near the deepest part of Lake Okanagan. The lake moderates the often extreme temperatures experienced in the Okanagan. Pinot Gris is well suited to this area, producing grapes with subtle flavours and retaining plenty of natural acidity. Aromas of Ripe apple, pear, peach and delicate flowers. The palate shows good minerality and extract, with refreshing acidity and fruit flavours on the finish.
2009 Arrowleaf Pinot Noir
Cherry and Raspberry aromas with peppery undertones. Light delicate smooth as silk wine to pair with your favorite porcini mushroom pasta.
2009 Arrowleaf Zwiegelt
Pronounced Ts-vi-gelt this 1922 Blaufrankisch X St. Laurent crossing was pioneered by Dr. Zweigelt of Austria. It has since rapidly gained in popularity and is now Austria’s most widely planted red grape.
Darkly colored wine with cherry, raspberry and spicy aromas. The taste is medium to full-bodied with rich fruit and vanilla oak flavours lingering on the finish. Pair with tomato-sauce based pastas, barbequed meats and vegetables or strong cheeses.
