Summer Wine Releases from BC Wine Studio

BC Wine Studio launches three new wines for Summer

Summers in the South Okanagan are long and hot, and BC Wine Studio has created three new wines which are perfect for warm days, patio time, and favourite summer dishes. Each of the wines, created by winemaker Mark Simpson, perfectly captures the new-world, fruit-driven style of his Siren’s Call collection.

All three wines are available now at selected private retailers,  local farmer’s markets and at www.bcwinestudio.ca alongside the 2015 Siren’s Call Syrah which recently finished second in a blind tasting of the best BC Syrah’s at 2019 BC Iconic Reds Syrah Competition.

 

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

Siren’s Call Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2018 is an elegant and refined interpretation of this most classic of white blends. It features grassy herbal notes and a pleasant floral aroma from 76% Sauvignon Blanc, balanced with tropical notes of pineapple, lemon, lime and guava from 24 % Sémillon which was aged in French Oak for extra depth and character. With all the grapes originating from Osoyoos, this wine evokes the heat and clear blue skies which define its famous summers.

2018 Rosé

Siren’s Call Rosé 2018 is an intriguing blend of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Bacchus and Viognier which is wild fermented with skin contact, minimal intervention, and natural yeasts. The grapes are sourced from vineyards in Oliver, Osoyoos, Kaleden and Naramata for a blend which is a full expression of the region.

This natural wine has an enticing orange hue, with flavor notes of rhubarb, strawberry and quince, along with a lovely savoury finish that makes it a refreshing choice that’s made for sunny days and patios.

Tenacious Turtle Chardonnay 2018

The third wine comes from another member of the Siren’s Call family and is made with grapes from Osoyoos. Tenacious Turtle Chardonnay 2018 was lovingly aged in French Oak, giving a toasted almond and vanilla finish. Tropical notes of pineapple and honeydew and a rich, creamy mouthfeel makes this an intriguing and complex wine which pairs well with starters, fish, light pasta dishes. It also makes a perfect aperitif!
