Fall 2019 micro lot series avaialble October 1st!
We would just like to keep all of our wine friends in the loop on this fall’s exciting wine releases. All of these wines have now made their way to our wine club and will now be available in our wine shop and website come October 1st.
First up is the 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir – possibly the last Reserve we will ever make and only a scant 110 cases were crafted, so this one won’t last long. Harvested from a geologically select block of our estate vineyard, this Pinot features 22 year old vines and 100% Stemwinder soils. Aged in one French oak 1000L vat for 16 months that provides a subtle oak influence, allowing both the vines and the terroir to leap from the glass. $35.
Next we have our second vintage of the Malbec micro lot series, 2017 Malbec– and let me tell you it’s DELICIOUS. Lots of plum and oh-so-smooth, we just can’t believe how drinkable this wine is considering it’s only a 2017. Malbec is a rising star in our portfolio, and with only 55 cases produced this year, most has already gone to Club Corcelettes. $32.
Something we’ve been aiming towards for years now is our highly anticipated 2017 Cabernet Franc. A notorious Similkameen all-star varietal, you KNOW ours is going to be one of the best you’ve tasted. Again, most has gone to our wine club members, so we encourgage you to order via our website as close as you can to October 1st. $34.
The grand finale of our fall micro lot series release is our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. This has been the ultimate game of patience for winemaker Charlie- in our pursuit for truly delicious and expressive wines, this 5-barrel micro lot of Cabernet was hidden in the corner of our barrel room for 36 months. This wine has a major wow factor, and is highly drinkiable as well as highly ageable. $70.
For all that missed it, we did very well at this year’s National Wine Awards. We were named #5 in the Top Ten Small Wineries category, #8 overall in British Columbia’s Best Performing Wineries, and #10 overall in the country.
Club Corcelettes Update
If you’re already a Club Corcelettes member, your packages have been shipped out as of Monday September 23rd and should be with you shortly. If you’re a Club member who picks your shipment up right at the winery, your package is available now in the wine shop for pickup any time!
If you’re NOT a Club member, this micro lot series is a pretty good reason to sign up. Our wines sell out fast and Club members get priority access to the most exclusive of our portfolio. A Club Corcelettes membership also makes a wonderful Christmas, birthday, or anniversary gift!
Our Table de Famille dinner series wrapped up this past weekend as we hosted 36 guests on our patio, with guest Chef John from Craft Corner Kitchen and Tree to Me Farm Market. The theme was Filipino food and we all knocked the event out of the ball park. If you didn’t get a chance to attend one of our dinners this year, stay tuned for next year!
Wishing you a wonderful start to the Fall season!
