Enrico Winery

Falconet Petite Milo 2017

Fantastic. There is something almost herbal that I can't put my finger on, but it is very unusual and delicious. Notes of straw and lemon with some floral. We tried it by itself and with salmon / fried oysters. It was great both ways. — 3 days ago

Whistler throw-back. Loving this.
The Canucks. Akin to spilling some paint, it’s impact is widespread. Really enjoy the sweet citrus notes.

Naramata Bench Pinot Noir 2019

Start your vacation in Vancouver with a glass of this wonderful Pinot Noir or open a bottle wherever you are and imagine you’re smelling the breeze off the sea , the scent of the pine, and the sunset that doesn’t finish in the summer. — 15 days ago

Charme de L'Île Rosé Blend

KD
9.0

Deep salmon colour with aromas of dried strawberries, ligonberries, peaches, hibiscus and some yeast. Vivacious bubbles, light airy body with refreshing acidity. On the palate, more strawberries, cranberries, nectarine with some orange peel, minerality and a touch of candied apple on the short-medium finish. Nice to see a good rosé charmat sparkling from the Island! — 5 months ago

Joie Farm

A Noble Blend White Blend 2020

Takeout sushi from Minami in Yaletown, so grabbed this at a little wine shop next door. Okanagan white blend that leans towards Riesling. Medium dry, decent acid, lychee-citrus/apple. Gets the job done although sweeter than I prefer. $15 bottle sold for $35. Average wine is expensive in Vancouver. — 6 months ago

Chateau Wolff Estate

Viognier Blend 2019

Tons of tropical flavour. Pineapple and peach. But not enough body. Nice on a hot summer patio, but doesn't hold up against most food except mild, sit cheese. — 3 months ago
