New Selection Estate Series

Two new additions to the Selection Estate Series: Okanagan Pinot Blanc Small Lots and Selection Estate Series Italian Barolo.
Selection Estate Series Okanagan Pinot Blanc- Small Lots
The Small Lots program features grapes from micro-vineyards that showcase the unique terroir and potential of their fruit. Location, soil, weather, air quality, sunlight and growing techniques; they all affect the character and quality of the grapes and Winexpert's Small Lots are the peak expression of that quality.
Light golden in colour, this wine is crisp and lively, with citrus and pineapple, delicate mineral notes and a finish hinting at honey and apricots.
This wine will only be available in small quantities for a limited time, so don’t miss this rare opportunity to stock your cellar with this refreshing fruit-driven wine from British Columbia.
Selection Estate Series ITALIAN BAROLO
Medium-heavy in body with a luminous dark cherry colour, tannin dominates the flavours initially, with intense grip and robust dryness in the finish. High acid, tannin and alcohol levels challenge the palate when the wine is young, but with age come rewards: wild ripe strawberries hot from the sun, a whiff of dark tar, the scent of roses and violets, and earthy, rich truffles. Burly, assertive ‘chewy’ wine, it is not for the faint of heart, but for those seeking intensity and complexity, there is nothing else like Barolo.
