A Newsletter from Spierhead Winery

JUNE 2013



This spring we released two wines which are new to SpierHead:  2012 Pinot Gris and 2012 Rose.  We’re delighted with the reception these wines have received.  Each is priced at $19.

The Pinot Gris has been given great reviews in the Vancouver Sun and in the Globe & Mail.  In the May 29, 2013 Sun, Anthony Gismondi called the wine “fresh and clean with ripe, red apple aromas and citrus throughout…Well done and affordable.”  In the June 1, 2013 edition of the Globe & Mail, Beppi Crosariol awarded our Pinot Gris 90 points.

Our 2012 Rose which is made from 100% Pinot Noir was a finalist in the Okanagan Spring Wine Festival and it won Double Gold as the top Rose in the competition at the 2013 All Canadian Wine Championships held in Ontario in May, 2013.  This wine was made in small quantity so we are only able to offer it for sale at our winery tasting room.


Drop by our tasting room this summer and taste our award winning Rose along with the rest of SpierHead’s portfolio.  Starting on the July long weekend we are open daily from 11 - 5:30 pm – weekends and by appointment until then. Our licenced picnic area is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of SpierHead.


We are offering our 2012 Riesling at a 10% discount to newsletter subscribers until July 31st, 2013.  Here's what Liam Carrier of ICON Wines had to say about it:

"Flinty with lemon-lime citrus notes aplenty, this balanced wine hails from East Kelowna yet adheres to the Niagra Riesling formula of matching sweetness to acid while keeping the alcohol low and maintaining a light and mineraly texture.  No clunky sugar and alcohol influenced palate here.  Just clean, crisp fruit and terroir driven flavours; a refreshingly honest approach.  Should develop unctuous nectar flavours if given time to mature, though tasting great in its youthful state today.  89+ pts"

Although we are not complaining, the fact is that we’ve learned that we have to allocate some of our wines.  SpierHead’s 2010 Pinot Noir was ranked as the top Pinot Noir in Canada at the Canadian Wine Awards in December, 2012, and our remaining stock of it sold out instantly.  Our plan is to use our Wine Club to ensure that SpierHead’s supporters get first access to our new releases and also the last opportunity to receive our scarce wines.  For example, our next wine club shipment, which is in July, will include our 2010 Pinot Noir and our 2012 Rose for those members who have selected the mixed red and white shipment or the all red shipment.  Learn more at

Hope to see you at the winery this summer.
