“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
Definitely always on my #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions list that I “personally recommend”. This is a perennial favourite in my house as well, depending on the season I always have at least one Wild Goose wine waiting to be opened.
The winemaking team sourced the best grapes from throughout the valley, from Oliver to Kelowna. They were kept separate until blending, when they were blind tasted and the top three were used to make this aromatic wine. This floral wine has a bouquet of grapefruit, lilac, orange tea and cloves with elegant flavours of peach, apricot and spice all balanced by crisp acidity.

The nose expresses peach and pear while the palate fills your mouth with flavours of melon and honey layered with spicy, earthy undertones, finishing with a hint of spice. A wonderful nose, well balanced and a beautiful finish. A perennial favourite!

This fruit forward Riesling comes from Estate grown grapes, including the 36 year old Wild Goose Vineyards, and the 14 year old Secrest Vineyards. Careful vineyard management and hand harvesting allows the wine to express not only the vine’s age but also the unique soil in which they grow. This wine can be cellared for 5-10 years, peaking around 3-5 years. Sweet reserve is added to balance the refreshing racy acidity, a “classic” method of winemaking. The nose shows aromas of floral, spice and apricot, while flavours of minerality and citrus follow.

The Pursuit of Meritage Perfection
A classic Bordeaux style blend of estate grapes; 50% Merlot, 25% Petit Verdot, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. With intense dark colour, this mouth-watering Meritage incorporates well integrated silky tannins and a luscious mouthfeel, expressing the wine’s fine aging ability. With aromas of pepper, dried fig, cherry, dark fruit, cassis, followed by flavours that hint of licorice, leather, chocolate and smoke. Using a combination of American and French oak this wine is great now, incredible in 5 years time!
