2020 seven stars Rigel
This single vineyard, seven stars wine is made with Riesling from the Fool’s Gold vineyard in North Oliver. Owned by Mark Antonello, a well-known vineyard manager, the estate was planted over 2 decades ago by his father-in-law Richard Cleave, the Okanagan’s most renowned viticulturist. The Western sloping vineyard is comprised of sandy clay loam soil, with abundant rocks and gravel, providing excellent drainage. The fruit was gently pressed, fractioned off to separate tanks for free run and gently pressed portion. Only the free run juice was used in the cuvée. The juice was then cold settled before fermentation in stainless steel. The ferment was cool, enabling the retention of the most delicate fruit aromatics. En tirage was for 12 months prior to disgorging and adding a proprietary dosage, for an expressive, bright and delicious sparkling wine.
Perfect to pair with fresh B.C. oysters, Dungeness crab, or soft robust cheeses.
2018 seven stars Equinox
100% Pinot Noir
This vintage of Equinox shows red fruit characters including wild strawberry, rhubarb, and Braeburn apple. The wine is complex due to the extended aging on the lees and tannin profile. The mousse is creamy with a cleansing acidity that makes this rich and luxurious wine round, yet well balanced.
This alluring, single-vineyard sparkling Brut Rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Stoneridge Vineyard in Okanagan Falls. Situated on a southwest-facing hillside overlooking the meandering Okanagan river by Vaseaux Lake, the climate here is ideal for sparkling grapes. The intense south Okanagan summer heat is tempered by the coolness of its elevation and proximity to the river. The good acidity that is maintained accentuates aromatics and fruit flavours within the finished wine. The wine was left en tirage for 30 months to ensure the development of autolytic characters. After riddling and disgorging, a small amount of our proprietary dosage was added for complexity and depth of flavour.
A beautiful cocktail and canapés wine, we suggest trying with bruschetta topped with prosciutto, ricotta and arugula, a smoked salmon and brie crostini, or strawberry macarons.
Wine club exclusive
2019 Cabernet Franc
This vintage was produced from the Raju Vineyard in Osoyoos, located close to the US border, where the southern heat allows for full ripening of this variety. A 16-day fermentation with pigeage and delestage management of the grapes enables rich fruit extraction. The wine was aged in predominantly French oak with some American oak barrels for 24 months, 20% of the oak was new. A wonderfully concentrated Cabernet Franc, that shows great balance and structure.
Pair with grilled balsamic pork tenderloin and a strawberry compote or try a vegetable lasagna.
seven stars club
Over two decades ago, we had a vision to craft a sparkling wine of distinction. Township 7 was amongst the first wineries in B.C. to create a méthod champenoise wine with our inaugural seven stars 1999. Since then we have won innumerable awards – highlighted by Best Canadian Sparkling Wine at the prestigious Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2019 in London, England.
With winemaker Mary McDermott’s passion and extensive expertise in traditional method wines, we have expanded our growing collection of small lot cuvées: Polaris, Equinox, Sirius, Vega and Eclipse. We hope you enjoy tasting our stars!
