Same terrific wine available in bottles or cans!

Blend: Pinot Blanc, Vidal, Siegfried, Viognier. We never disclose our blend percentages it’s our secret recipe!

It’s seriously complex, and how could it not be with these four diverse grapes combined perfectly to be much more than the sum of the parts! So go ahead… grab a cooler of cold cans or a bottle and crack open this lovely unoaked white blend. It has a clean nose of peach, grapefruit and apricots. It’s round and fruity on the palate with peach, honey, apricot, ripe apple and just enough citrus on the finish to keep it fresh, followed by an after note of warm sugar. Siegfried is an uncommon grape and is not the same as, nor is it related to, siegerrebe. Siegfried has a varietal characteristic of warmed sugar / cotton candy, aroma and finish, even when the wine is not actually sweet this note comes through after you swallow, these notes are some of what makes our Heart of Gold so special. It is super easy to pair with food and the cotton candy note either complements a meal or disappears with others and is extremely quaffable without food – you should try to remember you’re drinking real wine if you’re sipping it from a can at a music festival, hiking or on an airplane!

Castoro de Oro

The Castoro de Oro Estate Vineyard, was planted with viniferous grape vines in 1980, though for over 40 years previous to that it was a table grape vineyard. There are still a few of the extremely old table grape vines on our property, one of which is at the entrance to our wine shop. Our vineyard has a unique soil combination from alluvial deposit, southeast aspect with excellent exposure to sunshine resulting in full flavour and aroma development. The vineyard slope with the lake at the foot, providing excellent frost drainage, keeps the vines safe from late spring or early fall frost problems, allowing the grapes to ripen fully. The vines are planted to the foot of a mountain, which provides evening shade, resulting in a rapid cool-off during summer, which prevents the grape acids from dropping and results in a fine balance between ripe, sweet fruit and firm, clean acidity. All of which is an ideal foundation for growing superior grapes. White and red grapes grow equally well in this class one grape growing terroir and enables the production of terrific wines of many types in a wide range of styles.
