In our 2022 Winemaker’s Case, you’ll find:
1 x 2021 Borealis: A sipping favourite and the ultimate crowd pleaser, this vintage incorporates a touch of Pinot Gris into the light and floral Siegerrebe/Schonburger blend. Off-dry, with elderflower and lychee notes. A great wine to kick off an evening with friends. Serve with a roasted pepper and chili hummus for some fun back and forth between sweet and spice.
2 x 2019 Epic: Starting off bright and racy, this blend of Epicure and Ortega has taken a few years to slowly mature and develop more character in the bottle. Pear and green apple notes with a hint of honey, softer acids and a summery lemon tint. Try it with honey-miso roasted celeraic or a mild blue cheese.
1 x 2020 Ortega (Sold Out!): Proof that some good things did happen in 2020. This was Beaufort’s first vintage made with entirely estate-grown Ortega. We kept aside a few cases of this otherwise sold-out vintage for you to enjoy. The minerality and light salinity of our own terroir makes this bright and citrusy dry white wine one to savour. Enjoy a glass with pan-seared halibut with lemon and olives.
1 x 2021 Ortega: We love including different vintages of the same grape to show the changes that can come year to year in the vineyard. This 2021 Ortega is no exception. Honeydew melon notes lead the way in this light, clean and delicate 2021 Ortega. Dry and well-balanced, this is the perfect sipper to enjoy with scallops topped with an apple pan sauce.
1 x 2021 Petite Milo: This unique Island varietal has certainly captured the attention of local wine lovers. This 2021 small batch was a hit and we’ve stashed away the last few cases for our winemaker’s case. Dry and aromatic with notes of summer grass and guava. A more robust white in terms of flavour, structure and mouthfeel, this Petite Milo is a fantastic accompaniment to spicy meals, try it alongside a prawn vindaloo to give some kick to a chilly winter’s eve.
1 x 2021 Foch Nouveau: We hesitate to describe a wine as “crushable”, but if the cork fits… This light and bright red will show off some flashy colour and juicy, bouncy berry notes. The acidity makes it a fantastic meal date, washing down your grilled veggie pizza or cajun blackened turkey. Best served chilled.
1 x Cab Libre: Medium bodied and savoury – This Comox-grown Island hybrid had an extended oak-aging process that gifted some delightful coffee and tobacco notes in addition to rich cedar and tomato leaf. Drink this on a stormy evening with a roasted vegetable stew and hearty rye bread.
1 x 2019 Pinot Noir: A vibrant conversation between fruit and spice, this 2019 island-grown Pinot Noir has medium tannins supporting a union of plum and cherry notes alongside white pepper, nutmeg and a hint of pine. Aged in French oak. Allow this bottle to take you through a dinner of garlic confit chicken and into a spice cake dessert.
2 x 2019 Ça Beautage: Our flagship red blend continues along with its tradition of smooth and easy berry notes, a lovely deep hue and an earthy tone that reminds us of walking in the forest on an autumn morning. A year of aging in American oak added a lovely touch of smoke. Pair with a mushroom risotto and a good conversation.
1 x 2020 Ça Beautage (Pre-Release!): We’re keen for Beaufort fans to experience the evolution of our wines, which is why we’ve included a bottle of our 2020 Ça Beautage in an exclusive pre-release. Young gripping tannins and notes of cherry wood and red currant. Cellar for 2-4 years or open a ’19 and ’20 side by side and delve into the questions of age and wisdom.
