WHITE WINE

* 2009 Semillon – $25
100% estate grown Semillon. Varietal nose of lime and lemon. The palate is clean with citrus flavours with a beautiful fine acidity. This wine will build greatly in complexity over the next ten years, which will develop richer notes of honey and toast.

2008 Classique – $25
Estate grown 80% Marsanne, 20% Roussanne. Floral honeysuckle aromas with subtle barrel aged complexity.
The palate has relatively low acidity and beautiful mineral texture. Will reward cellaring over the next couple of years.

2014 Chardonnay – $25
A complex wine with beautifully integrated oak, subtle texture and fine acidity. Creamy, buttery palate will reward with cellaring.

2015 Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne – $25
Evident stonefruit presence, peach and apricot on the palate. Complex characteristics shown in such a young wine, will only reward with cellaring.

2016 Viognier – $25
Fragrant varietal bouquet of apricot, citrus and spicy green pear. The palate has delicate apple, pear, and cinnamon flavours with crisp acidity.

2015 Riesling – $22
Young lively citrus tones with a lengthy palate. Will reward with cellaring.

2016 Sweet Melody – $21
Aromatic wine with floral and musk flavours on the nose and palate. The palate is slightly sweet, balanced by clean, crisp acidity. It is a refreshing and fruity style of white wine.

RED WINE

2017 Shiraz – $25
A light cool-climate Shiraz in American oak with flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant with a spiced tannin length

2013 Ruby Creek Reserve (Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec Blend) – $35
Deep burgundy in colour takes its name from the nearby Ruby Creek. This wine is brimming with violet, plum and cassis on the nose. A dry red wine with a lasting finish followed by complex fruit intensity. Enjoy now but will reward with cellaring.
