“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
For this year’s #FavouriteThings list we give you three wines from Okanagan Crush Pad that are sure to please this holiday season. Bubbles are festive and fun and these three are perfect for celebrating and they make terrific hostess/host gifts.
Narrative XC Method 2018
This lively, fresh bubbly was crafted from grapes grown on our Summerland and Oliver vineyards. Secondary fermentation took place in state-of-the-art charmat tanks; designed to lie on their sides, exactly like traditionally-made sparkling wine is aged. Toasty, creamy notes round out the medium-bodied mouthfeel.
Haywire the Bub 2017
The Bub, named for our daughter Alison, known as The Bub, Bubster or Alibubba in her early years, is made from 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay grown in Oliver and Summerland. Primary fermentation occurred in a combination of concrete and stainless-steel tanks, before bottling for secondary fermentation and ageing.
Winemaker Dumayne says: The wine is crisp and fresh with delicious citrus and toasty notes and a textured, light effervescence. Pair with soft cheeses, fresh oysters, or enjoy it on its own.
Haywire Vintage Bub 2013
WINE PROFILE When originally released, the wine demonstrated classic warm bread aromas and a crisp green apple finish. Now, with aging, toasted hazelnut aromas are emerging with a creamy red apple palate and white grapefruit freshness to finish.
