Our rule of thumb is to try to purchase one bottle per winery, since they all have to be brought back on the plane. We bought three here, everything but the Gewurz (I just can't bring myself to call it "goo"). We have a family vacation planned for the Okanagan in July; we may just have to drag the kids out to Cawston to scoop up a few more bottles.
- Gewurztraminer 2009 ($17)
89 points. Floral but not syrupy. Fresh.
- Chardonnay 2008 ($18)
90 points. Complex, sweet and tart, bright, good acidity balance.
- Pinot Noir 2008 ($19)
91 points. Only two other wineries had a 91 point wine on our tour - Fairview and Laughing Stock. That's pretty exclusive company for Eau Vivre. "Warm, smooth, chocolate and sweet tones. Wow." (That's a direct quote from my notes.) A preposterous value.
- Cabernet Franc 2009 ($22)
