Summerland based winery, Okanagan Crush Pad, owned by Christine Coletta and Steve Lornie, and home to their Haywire wine, is known and awarded for its innovation. For the first time, a BC winery will introduce a guide to pairing BC wines with Asian cuisine, and offer a specially labeled Haywire wine crafted for BC’s Asian community to celebrate 2014 as the Year of the Horse.
A limited release of only 688 bottles of the 2012 Haywire Pinot Noir ($24.90) has been labeled depicting the symbol of the horse and good fortune in celebration of the Lunar New Year and to welcome the Year of the Horse.
The wine was gently aged in old French oak barrels and bottled in its purest state and has lovely cherry aromas and fruit-forward flavours, with soft texture and light tannins. It pairs well with pepper and onion sauce pork rib as well as seared sablefish with sweet soy sauce and baby bok choy.
