Haywire 'Baby Bub', Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Adorable, fresh, fragrant.
Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which with short skin contact, lends this adorable bubbly its cherry blossom pink hue. Expect aromas of cherries and strawberries, red apples and bubblegum with a hint of lilac and pink grapefruit. It has a delicate mousse with a kiss of sweetness to tame its tangy pink grapefruit, kumquat and crunchy fruit flavours.
Pair: a fresh baguette served with soft cheese and fruit compote on the side, brunch dishes or a patio and sun umbrella.

Haywire 'Canyonview Vineyard' Chardonnay, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Unique, creamy, mineral.
A Chardonnay that was fermented (in concrete) using wild yeasts of its vineyard and sees no oak but underwent extreme lees stirring.
Undoubtedly the lees stirring has an overall effect on this wine - citrus and crunchy white fruits give way to bread dough, nuts, vegemite and oxidative notes. The palate is creamy and rounded with ripe orchard fruits, citrus and complex mineral flavours. Very good concentration with a juicy but textural finish.
Probably not everyone's cup-of-tea, but unique and complex.
Pair: Roasted white meats, cream sauces, seafood, smoked cheeses, gourmet mac and cheese.

Haywire 'Canyonview Vineyard' Pinot Noir, Okangan Valley
Readers rated this wine:
Such an elegant, but thoroughly delicious Pinot Noir.
Black raspberries and cherry, saddle leather, violets and cocoa, dried sage and sweet spices with tealeaf. On the palate, tangy pomegranate leads the charge with spice, cocoa and vanilla. It boasts a silky palate and sweet high-toned fruit with a charming, juicy character and good persistence.

Haywire 'Crush Pad Red' Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:

The Haywire box trio offers you a fine selection of easy access wines, which have a handy tap. A box is worth four (count 'em, four) bottles - great for lazy people like me, or if you're off to the cottage!
The blue box, is a red blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and smells sweet and spicy. Black cherries, sunwarmed berries, vanilla, licorice and violets with a hint of orange peel and sweet spice. It is medium-bodied and juicy with plenty of the same berry and spice flavours you get on the nose.
An approachable red, great for a crowd, but don't serve it too warm, this is a wine, which benefits from just a little chill.
Look for the red box (a Gamay rose) and the green box (a white blend).
Serve with a party, with burgers, pizza, spicy sausage on a bun and the likes...

Haywire 'Crush Pad White', Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:

Here's a (not so) Haywire blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
This colourful box is equal to 4 bottles - just slide it into your fridge and you have your own tap!
Of course I love this concept - it's less packaging (good), less stockpiling (good), and perfect for lazy wine pourers like me (good).
It's a straightforward white, fresh and fruity with hints of honey, herbs, orchard fruits and even some spice on the nose. It's not lacking weight in the mouth - honey dominates the palate followed with citrus, nectarine, pear and apple flavours. It's a dry wine with a mouthwatering finish.
Look for the Crush Pad Red and Crush Pad Rose bag-in-box as well!
Sip solo or partner with: appetizers, cheese and olives, fish, salads... you get the drift...
