Tasting Notes

This non-traditional blend of Cabernet Franc and Malbec was produced with fruit sourced from east facing vineyards in Osoyoos. Cabernet franc ripens well in the Okanagan Valley, but Malbec can be far more demanding to reach phenolic ripeness in many vineyards. Fortunately, the 2018 Cabernet Franc Malbec begins with ripe characteristics of plum, cassis, blueberry, mint, herbs and floral notes. The palate is ripe with dark fruit characters, moderate acidity, soft medium/full bodied wine followed by firm tannins, age in 30% new French oak for 17 months.


Pair this wine with, grilled meats, Peking duck, lamb tagine, Vegan Chili, roasted Romanesco, feta, goat cheese, goulda and machego.

How are Canadian Icewines made?

Whistler Icewines and Wasaridge Icewines at our Coastal Delight Fine Food and Drinks store are delicious fruity sweet Canadian icewines made from frozen grapes handpicked sometime between late November to mid January in freezing Canadian winters when temperatures fell between -10ºC and -13ºC.

The grapes are then cleaned and cold pressed. The juice are settled in stainless steel tanks, cool fermented for about 3 months, and then placed outdoors to stop fermentation and to complete natural cold stabilization before bottled.
