A lesser-grown varietal in BC, Zweigelt offers aromas of ripe blueberry, plum, black cherry, fig and vanilla. The palate is round and smooth as the ripe strawberry, prune plum and mixed berry fruit combines with the soft acidity, giving a rich texture that lingers through the finish. Enjoy with homemade pizza on the grill, pastas, lighter meats and vegetarian dishes.
Located on the valley floor below Macintyre Bluff, Oliver BC, our small 3.41 acre estate vineyard was blessed with 1,699 growing degree days in 2015. Sunshine followed with exhaustive canopy management which produced quality mature grapes at harvest.
Our dreams became reality after more hard work during harvest of Zweigelt on October 10, 2015. The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in small batches, with aging completed in oak barrels and stainless steel drums. Blending and bottling took place mid September, 2015 to bring our dream to your table.
