Canyonview Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
SKU 845339 | 750ml | 515 Cases
pH 3.71 | TA 5.6 | RS 0.6 | Alc. 13.2%
This wine started with low crop levels, extreme patience during harvest, and slave-like 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 the hallmark cherry fruit intensity of the previous vintage, with soft, lush tannins and will continue to improve and evolve with bottle ageing. Pair with soft ripe cheeses, hearty stews and game meats.
Wild Ferment Pinot Gris 2012
SKU 75879 | 750ml | 200 Cases
pH 3.35 | TA 7.94 | RS 6.1 | Alc. 13.0%
The wine’s complexity and balance is the result of precision viticulture. Five distinct plots were identified in the vineyard and farmed separately. To preserve the unique characteristics of the dry lakeside environment where the grapes were grown, fermentation (which took place in egg-shaped concrete tanks) was reliant upon ambient native yeasts only, with no addition of cultured yeasts or enzymes and minimal winemaking intervention.
The result is a crisp and minerally wine with classic Okanagan aromas of tree fruits and herbs.

Switchback is the winery’s home vineyard with surrounding sage, bunch grass, Ponderosa pine, and fruit trees hallmarking the site’s aromas. The grapes were harvested and then processed in five separate lots, to create layered intensity in the wine. Fermented in our egg-shaped concrete tanks, the wine takes on minerality balanced with fruit, incredible complexity, and a round, creamy mouth feel.

Pink Bub is bottle fermented and aged using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes grown on cool vineyard sites in Oliver and Summerland. The grapes were harvested mid-September 2013 and the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, before bottling for secondary fermentation. Fresh and lively with nice warm bread aromas and a crisp green apple finish, which is a shining example of what the Okanagan does best. Pink Bub is proudly made by our sparkling winemaker, Jordan Kubek, who recommends pairing it with soft cheeses, fresh oysters, or simply enjoying it purely on its own.

Haywire is an old Canadian term that refers to wire once used for baling hay, which tended to tangle in a chaotic way. It is also an apt description of Christine and Steve’s transition from the city to owning a vineyard and winery. The learning curve was steep, but as the first wines hit the market (in 2010) it became apparent that the journey was the reward.
Since planting the 10-acre Switchback Vineyard, Christine and Steve have gone on to open Canada’s first purpose-built custom crush facility (Okanagan Crush Pad Winery in 2011) and are now getting ready to plant the first 20 acres of vines at their 312-acre Garnet Valley Ranch. Haywire is committed to crafting wines that tell the story of the new Okanagan.
