Amulet 

The medallion on our Amulet bottles is a replica recast of the original hand-struck Gold Angel coin from the Elizabethan era. First appearing in 1470, the coin depicts St Michael slaying an evil dragon. Rumoured to be Shakespeare’s preferred method of payment for his services, the gold coin was also frequently worn as an Amulet to ward off evil and bring good luck to those in its possession. This concept of good vs evil plays well with the style of our Rhone-inspired wines as, we believe, in order to be good, we sometimes must be a little bit evil.

Winemaker Dwight Sick has taken his passion for making Rhone-inspired Okanagan wines and turned it into a new label, alongside winemakers and friends, Penelope and Dylan Roche. Grown in some of the best vineyard sites in the Okanagan Valley, their grapes are tended by hard working hands along with a ruthless attitude to grow quality before quantity. This approach in the vineyard enables a gentle translation in the cellar which produces honest and pure wines that are terroir driven. Production is extremely limited, and they plan to keep it that w

Amulet White         Naramata Bench, BC   2018          ½  glass 5.25       5oz glass 10       8oz glass 16      ½ ltr 32    btl  48                            

The wine is straw in colour with golden hues and a slight haze, very aromatic on the nose with notes of honeycomb, ripe apricots and fresh rainfall. The palate is focused with white peach, lemon oil, raw almonds and a dusting of white pepper. The finish, although having a gentle cushion of lees richness, remains bright and juicy with natural acidy. Expect some sediment to occur in the bottle. Pour gently or decant prior to drinking.

 

TINHORN CREEK

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards was founded by Kenn and Sandra Oldfield and Bob and Barb Shaunessy in 1993. What started with a couple of barrels in the basement of a house and a few acres of vines has grown into a thriving winery; attracting a group of talented people committed to making outstanding wines in the south Okanagan. We hold these values close to our hearts; to be responsible stewards for the land, our people, our community and the future. Through our ongoing commitment to that original vision we pay homage to our roots and the ideals on which Tinhorn Creek was built.

Nose give notes of blueberry jam, dried fig and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and textured, saturated with coffee and dark fruit before the tannins show up to end the party. A big tannin profile carries this structured wine for ages on the finish
