Bizou + Yukon Savvy Gris 2019

 

Here’s a nice idea to make Pinot Gris just a tad more interesting. Gooseberry hints up front, it starts out pretty classic Sauvignon Blanc, easy on the palate with some serious fruit intensity and mouthfeel, tropical fruit, grapefruit citrus with juicy acidity and a zesty close. A very refreshing drop.

Introducing the latest brand from Okanagan Crush Pad named for the two Great Pyrenees that guard the flock of sheep at The Ranch.

Bizou + Yukon Savvy Franc 2018

 

The blend is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that’s wild fermented in concrete. The nose shows a rich broth of bumbleberry, savoury raspberries, earth, anise and a floral note. It has such lovely texture on the palate with polished tannins to go forward red berries, anise, licorice and a smooth delivery through the finish.

Bizou + Yukon BEE-zoo Bubbles 2018

BEE-zoo Bubbles is a refreshing, lively, sparkling wine made from classic sparkling wine grape varieties grown in our Summerland and Oliver vineyards. Secondary fermentation took place in our state-of-the-art charmat tanks; designed to lie on their sides, exactly like traditionally made sparkling wine is aged. Time spent on Pinot Noir skins provide a delicate pale pink hue to the wine. Toasty, creamy notes round out the medium bodied mouthfeel. Pawsitively a must with lazy evenings on the patio or happily paired with shellfish or simply enjoyed on its own.

$24.90 available online

Why Bizou + Yukon? 

The Ranch is a serious project, and ultimately when the vines are mature the wines grown there will be serious stuff. “Yet the #1 question I get asked,” says Okanagan Crush Pad owner Christine Coletta, “is how are Bizou + Yukon?”

The 12 colourful custom-illustrated labels feature a magical world where the dogs have clearly taken over. Each of our 12 labels on our still wines relates back to an aspect of our farming and contains a “pawnote” that explains more.

Savvy Gris $19.90 is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc + Pinot Gris made with wild yeast in concrete tanks. A refreshing white to sit back with after a long day of herding giant insects.

Pinkie Rosé $19.90 is a mix of several white and red wine varieties, mouth-wateringly prepared by our amazing cellar team. Pinkie swear this wine is 100% Okanagan deliciousness.

Savvy Franc $20.90 is a blend of Merlot + Cabernet Sauvignon + Cabernet Franc made with wild yeast in concrete tanks. A bright, approachable wine, paws down the best BBQ partner you will find.

BEE-Zoo Bubbles $24.90 is a refreshing light pink blend of Pinot Noir and other premium sparkling wine grapes. Time spent on Pinot Noir skins provides a delicate pale pink hue to set off flavours of strawberry, apple and toasty, creamy notes. Crisp acidity and a dry finish make this match for all appetizers.
