Located in the heart of Okanagan Falls, with a breathtaking view of Vaseux Lake in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Liquidity prides itself on making handcrafted wines that express the individuality of the vineyard, variation of the season and varietal.
Winemaker Alison Moyes and her team are proud to add three new wines to Liquidity’s current award winning collection. Liquidity was recently recognized in the National Wine Awards of Canada by WineAlign with a gold award for its 2014 Pinot Noir Estate and two silver medals for the 2014 Chardonnay and 2015 Riesling.
Released on July 1, the three new wines include the 2014 Chardonnay Reserve ($42 plus tax). The 100% estate-grown Chardonnay features toasty notes and a rich nose of vanilla cream, pear, honeysuckle, lemon curd, apple peel and caramel. Flavours of Anjou pear, lime zest, lemon butter, nectarine, white currant and honeycomb linger in a long complex finish.
Building on a strong portfolio of Pinots, the new 2014 Pinot Noir Reserve ($42 plus tax) is a 100% Pinot Noir varietal that has a nose of dark cherry, chocolate and blackcurrant, with nuttiness, smoke, warm spice and earthy notes. This medium-bodied wine is well-balanced with silky tannins and flavours of Saskatoon berry, blueberry, damson plum, lingonberry, pomegranate and a hint of black forest cake; with some subtle smokiness and a long finish.
Liquidity’s small batch 2014 Pinot Noir Equity ($56 plus tax) is a complex and elegant 100% Pinot Noir wine that has concentrated aromas of strawberry, cherry, raspberry compote, marshmallow, warm spice, violets and tea. It offers rich flavours of blackcurrant, juicy dark cherry, liquorice, baking spice, brambleberry, smoke and vanilla, which is balanced with good acidity and bold dusty tannins.
