The Latest from Okanagan Crush Pad: October 8, 2014

Happy Wine Wednesday!

Wine critics have spoken – choose Haywire wines this Thanksgiving! Also, join us for a fundraiser benefiting PADS, participate in a winemakers dinner, and visit us this weekend for deals.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and wine critics have chosen Haywire wines to pair perfectly with your turkey (and non-turkey) feast.

Haywire-GamayNoir2012Haywire Gamay Noir 2012 with Stuffing as recommended by Kurtis Kolt at The Georgia Straight:

While there are many options for pairing with stuffing, let’s stick to some fairly common components like sourdough bread, fresh sage, hazelnuts, onion, celery, and a good dusting of salt and pepper. You have some distinct flavours going on here, but it’s the sage that’s catching my eye. When we talk South Okanagan terroir, there’s plenty of sage that grows wild, and with its aromatics in the breeze, it’s not uncommon for wines to express a little of this influence. Let’s put a red wine on the table but not get too heavy, since we don’t want to overwhelm any subtle flavours. Haywire 2012 Gamay Noir is a softer red that has a velvety texture and a slightly earthy side with wild mushroom, dried plums, currants, and a whisper of that telltale B.C. sage. Read the full article here.

Buy Haywire Gamay Noir 2012 at the following liquor stores, online, or contact Whitney.

Haywire-CVPinotNoir2011

Haywire Canyonview Pinot Noir 2011 with Salmon as recommended by Michaela Morris at Westender:

Homegrown wine is always appropriate when giving thanks. Here, crunchy red cherries and strawberries are punctuated by cinnamon and clove. Go uber-local and serve salmon. Read the full article here.

Buy Haywire Canyonview Pinot Noir 2011 (winner of 2014 Lieutenant Governor’s Award) at the following liquor stores, online, or contact Whitney.

The News
June 18, 2014 (Summerland, BC) Haywire wine, made at Okanagan Crush Pad winery in Summerland BC has been awarded a Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in British Columbia Wines for the Canyonview Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011 ($35).

Note to editors: Photo Opportunity
Mark your calendar: The Honorable Judith Guichon, OBC will visit Okanagan Crush Pad, home of Haywire, on Friday, July 25 @ 1:40 pm to present the award. An advisory with further details will follow closer to the date.


More Information:
The Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence in BC Wines was established in 2003 to recognize and honour excellence in the province’s growing wine industry and to elevate the image of BC wines. To be eligible for the competition, the wine must be grown and processed within British Columbia. The awards are supported by the Government House Foundation.

The Haywire Canyonview Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011 has been a favourite among critics since its release, and the winery is flattered that it has been recognized by the Lieutenant Governor.

“We’re honoured, especially since this is the first vintage of this wine,” remarks winery owner Christine Coletta. “We hope that this award is a sign of things to come, as we see great strides being made in our wine quality, year over year. We’re very proud of our winemaking team, Michael Bartier and Matt Dumayne, who have received accolades not only for our Haywire wines, but for wines they made for many of our custom crush clients.”

Bartier notes that this Pinot Noir started with low crop levels, extreme patience during harvest, and strictly regimented manual punch downs in the tanks. It was aged in old French oak barrels then moved into egg-shaped concrete tanks for further rest time. The wine has cherry fruit intensity, with soft, lush tannins and will continue to improve and evolve with bottle aging. The winemaking team suggests the wine pairs well with soft ripe cheeses, hearty stews, and game meats.

About Haywire

Haywire wines were launched in 2010 with a small offering of Pinot Gris grown on Switchback Vineyard. Since then, a Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Chardonnay, rosé and sparkling wine have been added to the 12,000 case portfolio. The winemaking team includes Italian winemaker Alberto Antonini, Michael Bartier, and Matt Dumayne.

The Latest from Okanagan Crush Pad: April 9

Happy Wine Wednesday! It’s time for our 2nd annual Rosé Smack Down!

The Gloves are Off for a Rosé Smack Down

Michael Bartier and David Scholefield are once again defending their favourite rosés. Michael Bartier is on team Haywire while David Scholefield is putting up a fight for Bartier Scholefield. Here’s what they have to say about their favourite rosés:

Bartier-Scholefield_BoxingMichael Bartier on the Haywire Rosé:

Wine should be judged on its ability to evoke and articulate its origin. The 2011 Haywire Gamay Noir Rosé is a wine of the Okanagan Valley, specifically the Secrest Mountain Vineyard. Being from there, we know it is grown in glacial till rich in minerals, with calcium carbonate, granite, and basalt present.
Our lexicon includes the words “fresh”, “pristine”, “beautiful”, “clean”, “bright”, “crisp”, “bountiful”, “refreshing”, and so on.
With the Gamay Noir Rosé, we have a wine with aromas of minerality, fresh berries and tree fruits, and with a remarkable and pristine refreshing structure. To conclude if this is a great wine or not, I’ll simply refer to a quote from a great man, “Great wine articulates, great wine evokes, and of course, great wine tastes great.”

David Scholefield on the Bartier Scholefield Rosé:

For us in the Okanagan, if place matters, rosé matters.
We believe that Okanagan rosé can be one of the world’s classic cool-climate wine styles, proving once and for all that rosé can be very much more than sweet, concocted ‘vino-pop’.
BS Rosé is 100% Gamay, always destined to be pink not red, with the belief that rosé is the highest and best use of this fruit. The wine is lipsmackingly crisp, with tangy, cranberry/raspberry fruit and a lovely leafy/earthy undertone. Like all great rosés, it has the tannic grip that proclaims seriousness; but it also has the astonishing glossy texture that makes great rosé such a joy to drink, and finishes with a sage-y savoury note that is pure Okanagan DNA.

Who will win this battle? You be the judge!

Haywire Baby Bub Press Release

Announcing the Arrival of Baby Bub

Jordan and Baby Bub

Winemaker Jordan Kubek crafted Haywire Baby Bub

The team at Okanagan Crush Pad is thrilled to announce the arrival of Baby Bub. On June 20, 2014 at 5:30pm 3,600 – 375 ml bottles, weighing 792 Kg appeared at the winery, in time to enjoy summer.

Baby Bub was crafted by Jordan Kubek, Okanagan Crush Pad’s cellar assistant with direction from chief winemaker Michael Bartier. “The Baby Bub is tasting fresh, fruity and fabulous”, noted Jordan, “and I am very happy with the results. We stayed consistent with the 2012 Pink Bub giving Baby Bub six grams of residual sugar. I love the texture as it has quite a bit of yeasty fullness. Although it is a new born, the bubbles are quite fine and you can see the direction the wine will take as it ages.”

The wine was made in the classic style using Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes with secondary fermentation occurring in the bottle. It was hand riddled and warm disgorged with a red wine dosage being added at final bottling. Like its bigger siblings, Baby Bub is closed with a crown cap ensuring that cork taint does not interfere with the wine.

This tiny bottle is a young, bright shade of pale rose and is packed full of raspberry, strawberry patch and lime zest character. Its singularly distinctive taste is gun flint which lends a smokey, stoney edge to the wine and keeps it in balance with its more berry salad side.

Baby Bub is being released this July long weekend at the winery and through the order desk exclusively. Priced at $13.90 and delivered in 12 – 375 ml bottle cases, sporting hot pink artwork, Baby Bub is sure to be a big hit this summer.

Winery Tasting Lounge Open for Easter!
