This wine reflects the best that warm Cowichan Valley summers can deliver. Ortega is Vancouver Island's signature grape and this wine is its perfect ambassador. The delicate floral and orange peel aromas are supported by a medium body, with lively acidity that finishes with buttery caramel notes. Vegan. We suggest fresh oysters, or just about any seafood. 11.6% 

 

 

Ortega is a cross between Siegerrebe and Müller-Thurgau (itself a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royale). The majority of grapes come from vines at least 25 years old, fully mature and at the peak of their production. However, for the first time this wine will include grapes from vines planted in 2014. The Ortega block has a southwest aspect, is 100% organically
