vuw_pinot-gris

vuw_merlot

Merlot 2013 – SOLD OUT

The VUW 2013 Merlot is deceptively easy-going. It disguises depth of character under a charming exterior. Hand-crafted from a single vineyard on the upper Naramata bench the wine layers bright black cherry fruit over a core of sweet spice. This is a go-to wine with lots going on.

Production: 80 Cases
Price: $16
Vineyard: Naramata Bench

Colab Series

Col – lab – o – rate (v.)
With so many talented winemakers in British Columbia producing award-winning wines, we decided to collaborate with these wineries to produce a portfolio of wines that reflect the people and land from which it is crafted. Each wine joins our unique urban winery in collaboration with a farm-based winery of BC to bring you a glass of premium BC VQA wine. Enjoy your visit.

colab_chardonnay

Chardonnay 2012 In Collaboration w/ ROAD 13 – SOLD OUT

Bright golden colour hints at the ripeness of the fruit. The nose is intense and layered. Notes of yellow apples, Meyer lemons, and quince paste overlay a well-integrated base of vanilla and toffee. The wine comes alive on the palate. Fresh, vibrant acidity runs through a rounded, slightly creamy mouth-feel. The lingering finish presents flavours of cantaloupe giving way to mouth-watering notes of preserved lemon. A well-rounded Chardonnay that marries purity of fruit with complexity gained from partial oak aging.

Production: 120 cases

colab_merlot

Cabernet Merlot 2012 In Collaboration w/ BC Wine Studio – SOLD OUT

In the glass, the wine shows a deep plum and ruby colour. On the palate, juicy raspberry and cherry notes paired with a slight velvet dark chocolate finish. With 15 months in 100 % French oak and 40% new oak, this juicy wine shows the perfect balance of oak and fruit.

Production: 70 cases

colab_gewurztraminer

Gewürztraminer 2013 In Collaboration w/ 3 Mile Vineyard

On the nose you find clean notes of lychee, white flowers and spice showing a classic BC gewürztraminer. This wine is delightful on the palate showing green apple, peaches, lychee with a refreshing and dry finish making it a perfect food wine. Though the 2013 vintage began late – with a cool, damp Spring – it made up for lost time with an exceptionally warm, dry Summer. Excepting a small patch of rain in September, the heat barreled through the Autumn, producing flavourful grapes with full phenolic ripeness and great complexity.

Production: 60 cases
Price: $18
Vineyard: Three Mile Vineyard (Naramata)
Variety: Gewürztraminer (100%)

ABV: 12.5%

colab_sparkling

Blanc de Noir Brut NV In Collaboration w/ Backyard Vineyard

A pretty pale orange to golden hue in the glass with a fine and persistent bead. The nose presents variations on green apples – apple cider, baked apple pie – as well as deeper notes of orange marmalade and fresh baked bread. On the palate, the wine is lean and refreshing, showing hints of under-ripe strawberry and just barely there natural fruit sweetness. The long finish leads with the crisp acidity of pink grapefruit, a nod to the wine’s unique Fraser Valley terroir.

Production: 100 cases
Price: $25
Vineyard: Backyard Estate Vineyard (Langley/Fraser Valley)
Variety: Pinot Noir (100%)

ABV: 10.79%

colab_pinot-gris

Pinot Gris 2013 In Collaboration w/ 3 Mile Vineyard – SOLD OUT

In the glass, the wine shines pale lemon flecked with gold. Fresh green fruit, pink grapefruit, and bright lemon dominate the nose with hints of sweeter stone fruits and spring blossoms. The palate neatly combines a slight richness characteristic of ripe fruit with a burst of vibrant acidity. The finish leaves a lasting impression of crisp citrus fruits run through by an undercurrent of stony minerality from the fruit’s source in a single, clay-rich vineyard.

Production: 215 cases
Price: 18
Vineyard: Three Mile Vineyard (Naramata)
Variety: Pinot Gris (100%)

ABV: 12.9%

Events

We host a few select in-house events each month. Our two main events are our popular Sunday School Series hosted by rock star sommelier’s David Stansfield and Lisa Cook and our Set List evenings hosted by the talented Francesca Carbonneau from FRANKIE.

Sunday School is a series of informal and irreverent wine seminars focusing on demystifying wine in an accessible and energetic environment. “Our goal is to pair a little education with a lot of wine, and even more fun” explains David Stansfield. “That’s the great thing about learning about wine. The best way to do it is to drink, and to talk about drinking.” Find upcoming seminars here: vuw.eventbrite.com.

The Set List is a live music night that features talented, local musicians performing in our lounge on select Monday nights from 7pm-11pm. Email us to find out our next Set List date or how you can get involved as an artist: setlist@settlementbuilding.com.
