My Wine Canada Wine Club Feature: Sandhill Wines
We're getting closer to the gift-giving season, and whether you're shopping for yourself or a loved one, wine packs are the perfect gift. We're elated to announce Sandhill Wines as our November Wine Club feature. Based in Kelowna, B.C., Sandhill is home to six exceptional and distinctive vineyards full of character that shines through in each wine that is made.
Sign up for the wine club today to get a selection of impressive Okanagan wine delivered to you or a loved one. Using gentle and non-interventionist winemaking techniques, Sandhill's wines are a focused expression of the terroir of each of their distinctive vineyards.
Sandhill’s outstanding wines begin in these vineyards: Sandhill Estate, King Family, Phantom Creek, Osprey Ridge, Hidden Terrace, and Vanessa Vineyard. Each of the vineyards is described as “magical” by those who tend to them, and that magic comes from the unique geophysical factors of each property such as different climates and soil types. To ensure only the best grapes go into each vintage, the winery keeps all lots separate throughout the winemaking process and selects the top lots for crafting. Choosing not to blend grapes from multiple vineyards is a risk for the winery; if one vineyard presents challenging growing conditions, it can negatively affect a large portion of Sandhill's portfolio. Their dedication to producing single-vineyard wines is risky, but it's a risk that has paid off as each vintage has produced distinctive wines that beautifully capture a specific time and place.
While your wine is making its way to you, take a quick peek at some of the bottles that are included in our November Wine Club box.
A dry, medium-bodied white with aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, nectarine, and yellow apple. It's fruit-forward on the palate with notes of peach, tropical fruit, and hints of citrus. Pair with lobster thermidor with butter or white pizza topped with spinach, rosemary, and potato.
An outstanding white rated 91 points by the Wine Club Canada team. Indulge in notes of tropical fruit, red apple, peach, orange, and lemon zest. A great match with salmon and cucumber sushi rolls or spring pea risotto with sautéed mushrooms.
A dry red with notes of blueberry, blackberry, cedar, and spice with a hint of sweet herbs on the finish. Awarded 90 points by wine expert Tony Aspler. Enjoy alongside slow-cooked lamb chops in red wine sauce or grilled veggie wraps with corn salsa.
A deep, ruby-hued barbera with a cedar and spice nose and black cherry and redcurrant on the palate. A harmonious red with a beautiful structure and a velvety mouthfeel. Pair it now with honey-garlic pulled pork or tikka masala dishes, or cellar it and enjoy it through 2023-2024.
