Product category: Okanagan Valley

2013 Merlot

This an oak-forward and fruit-forward big BC red with broad appeal. Glossy, sweet oak richly coats the fruitcake and chocolate-y merlot fruit, building a firm foundation for virile tannins. A slight green bitterness joins the oak and grape tannins giving a nice bite to the finish. True to flamboyant house-style, and good for more several years.

2014 Chardonnay

An engagingly fresh, ripe and full, modestly oaked chardonnay here from Burrowing Owl, with fine acid cut, nicely chiselled, and very good length. I'd cellar this for another 1-2 years to achieve full integration of flavours - should make for a compelling wine. One of the most compelling chardonnays from this producer in recent memory.

2014 Cabernet Franc

Clean, neat and focused but also quite sultry and reveling. Naturally appealing and very flavourful with little oak or manipulated feel. Certainly not straightforward, however, as the depth of its complexity revels itself slowly and seems to evolve sip after sip. Nicely ripened but also generous with a plenty of cabernet franc characteristic aromas such as dried herbal and floral notes. Really quite exceptional, don't miss out.

About us

Company details

Burrowing Owl’s main vineyards (130acres / 53ha) are located in a prime location on the eastern side of the Okanagan Valley between Osoyoos and Oliver, British Columbia. The Black Sage bench offers a favourable slope, good drainage, and ideal sun exposure. Grapes grown on this bench have already attracted local and international acclaim alike. Eva’s 30 acre (11ha) vineyard is located on a south-west facing above Osoyoos Lake and a stone’s throw from the US border! The Keremeos 10 acre (4ha) vineyard is planted on the gentle south western gravely slopes in cooler Similkameen valley and offers classic conditions for sauvignon blanc. All our wines are made from estate grown grapes. All our grapes are harvested by hand.

"Burrowing Owl’s wines shine with gastronomic delights. They appeal to food that enlivens the senses.” Dave Keeler – The Sonora Room Restaurant. The acclaimed success of the 9 varietals, including 5 of Bordeaux, reflects the outstanding growing conditions of the dry mesoclimate of the 3 vineyard locations. A wide range of grape varieties are produced, all displaying perfect balance of ripeness and structural acidity that enable them to age beautifully. All reflect the nature of those who so proudly produce them: consistent and gentle with genuine character.
