Awards


  • Double Gold - 2012 All Canadian Wine Championship
  • Gold - 2012 Northwest Winepress Magazine Platinum Judging

The grapes for the desert wine came from the Black Sage Bench in Oliver. The growing season was short for the grapes, with cool temperatures but the Muscat is an early ripening grape. Harvested on the second week of September.

Winemaker's Notes

The wine is full bodied sweet with lots of floral, apple, peach and spicy aromatics.

Wine Making

Whole cluster press to minimize skin contact with the juice. Then the juice is cooled and inoculated with a special yeast and fermented in closed top stainless steel tanks. We stop the fermentation half way in order to retain the flavor and the natural sugars of the grape adding the purest of alcohols as they do it in Portugal The wine spend 14 months on French barrels making the wine rounder and integrating the elements together
