Tupungato, Mendoza, Argentina   

This projecty was born from a great friendship between Gonzalo Tamagnini and Martin Sesto who met several years ago working together  for other projects.  Both agreed on ideals, styles and tastes so they decided to communicate and spread this passion they have for viticulture with their own wines.  In this process they have found many challenges, awakening a permanent desire for improvements, innovations and experimentation with new techniques to the point of becoming two “Desquiciado” (Maniacs) in wine.

Alberta CSPC +881894                 12 x 750ml per case               open stock

85% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc

Co-fermentation of the varietals to give more complexity to this wine. When it finishes fermenting, we aged the 40% of the wine in barrels for 8 months, 10% of the wine is aged in new french barrels. The final blend is made with 50% of the wine that was left in the stainless steel tank, without wood, to give it a more fruity aromatic profile and much kinder on the palate

91 Points –  Wine Advocate  “The fresh, varietal and fruit-driven 2021 Malbec is co-fermentation with 15% Cabernet Franc and indigenous yeasts.  It has floral aromas and an expressive nose of violets and red berries with a spicy twist from the nine months that half of the wine matured in oak barrels.  The palate is medium-bodied, with contained ripeness and 13.5% alcohol, with very fine tannins, focused and clean.”

91 points – James Suckling “Blackberries and walnuts with some stem and pistachio character in both the nose and palate. Medium bodied, round and flavorful. Drink now.”

90% Malbec with 10% Syrah.  Aged 20 months in 2nd use French oak barrels.

Microvinifications in plastic bins co-fermenting both varietals in proportions similar to the final blend. We made cold maceration for 4 days
in order to enhance the concentration of the wine, due the age and character of the vineyard, this permit us obtain more structure and character of the Malbec. Once the fermentation is finished, we made a post-fermentative maceration process that lasts approximately 20 days, according to tasting.

93 points ~ Wine Advocate – “The serious 2019 Salvaje Malbec was produced with grapes from La Consulta (different from before), which is an old vineyards in the process of being certified organic with low yields.  It has a lot of concentration and some 10% Syrah, with amazing balance.  It’s expressive and clean and has good ripeness and devlopment of aromas and flavours, juicy, very Malbec.  It is medium to full-bodied and has more depth; it’s longer and concentrated with good weight in the mid-palate with very good balancing acidity. It’s really an improvement from previous years.  3 000 bottles were filled in February 2022.”

93 points ~ James Suckling “Spiced plums and black cherries with blue flowers, cloves and cocoa nibs. Refined and velvety with a creamy tannin structure. Medium-to full-bodied, ripe and juicy with delicious dark-fruit and chocolate notes on the palate. Mild, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.”

“The 2022 Upper Awatere Sauvignon Blanc is delightfully aromatic.  Lifted notes of cool climate stone fruits, blackcurrant bud and gooseberries fill the glass.  There is an abundance of fruit weight on the palate which is structured and well balanced, with refreshing mineral acidity.”

Alberta CSPC +881900                 12 x 750ml per case               open stock               

Our style of Chardonnay is driven by the cool climate of the Awatere Valley and the use of older oak barrels.  The subtle oak flavours integrate beautifully with the citrus and lighter stone fruit flavours of the fruit.  Once ferment is complete, the wines are kept in barrel for several months maturing on the yeast lees.  Before bottling, the wines undergo Malo-Lactic fermentation, although this is kept to around 30% so as not to dominate the final wine.

92 points Cam Douglas MS – “The bouquet suggests a quietly spoken wine with subtly and charm.  Aromas of fresh white peach and vanilla, red apples flesh and pear with a whisper of quince and barrel toast.  A satin touch on the palate with contrasting acidity then white fleshed orchard fruits and lemon flavours coat the palate.  The oak is quiet and undersated yet attentive.  Well made and decent complexity, lots of texture and length.  Best drinking from 2023 through 2027.”

Alberta CSPC +845924                 6 x 750ml per case               open stock

“A powerful and concentrated wine that is packed with ripe stone fruit flavours and layered with exotic tropical aromas, created by the use of wild yeast and selective use of oak.  A beautifully balanced wine with exquisite finessse and harmony.  Enjoy this wine now or over the next 5 – 10 years.”

94 points – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit – “Wonderfully complex and engaging, the bouquet shows golden apple, grapefruit and roasted nut characters with nuances of mushroom and oatmeal. The palate delivers excellent weight and richness, brilliantly balanced by vibrant acidity. It’s richly textured and savoury with a lengthy mouth-watering finish. At its best: now to 2028.”

94 points – Bob Campbell MW – “Rich, textural, mouth-filling sauvignon blanc with guava, pineapple, grapefruit, nectarine and gooseberry flavours together with ginger and toast. A bold, complex wine with some honeyed bottle development.”

Individual rows are chosen by hand and each parcel of fruit is carefully selected and kept separate throughout the winemaking process to preserve the unique flavours. Indigenous fermentations and time on lees allow subtle earthy flavours and a lovely texture to develop. The wines are rich and complex with a perfect amount of oak used in every wine to compliment the style.

“Deep ruby, with a fragrant, savoury, slightly herbal bouquet. Full-bodied, it has concentrated plum, herb and spice flavours, complex and savoury, fine-grained tannins and a lengthy finish.”

94 points – Wine Orbit – “Wonderfully fruited and gorgeously expressed, this stylish pinot shows dark fruit richness with vanillin oak, cocoa, smoked game and thyme characters on the nose. The palate delivers excellent concentration and supple mouthfeel, beautifully complemented by silky texture and fine, polished tannins. Complex and engaging with an impressively long refined finish.”

94 points – Bob Campbell MW – “Moderately dense, smooth-textured Pinot Noir with hazelnut, red fruits and classy French oak flavours. A seamless, sophisticated wine with a structure of fine, peppery tannins. Accessible now but should develop well.” 


Bordeaux, France   ~   Certified Organic       ~  New !  

Chateau Mille Roses came to life in 1999; born from several well-situated plots in Macau and Arsac immediately south of the Margaux Appellation.  Organically certified since 2013, Sophie and David Faure passionately tend to 5.5 hectares in the Haut-Medoc and 5.35 hectares located between two Grand Cru Classé vineyards within the appellation of Margaux.  Through high density plantings in the deep gravelly soils and strict vineyard management, yields are kept deliberately low, producing exceptionally high quality fruit which is harvested at the optimum ripeness with each vintage.

Alberta CSPC +887774                 6 x 750ml per case               open stock

Blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot

“The 4 plots of vines classified as Haut-Medoc appellation are right next to the Chateau.  This wine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon competed with a small amount of Petit Verdot (about 10% depending on the vintage).”

“Both blending and terroir give a crisp style (well-balanced with a lot of fruit notes) with a dense but very smooth tannin structure.  Aging in oak barrels, renewed by 25% each year makes Mille Roses, Huat-Medoc rounder and keeps all its fruity strength.”

Alberta CSPC +887777                6 x 750ml per case               coming soon

Blend of 55% Cabernet Savignon and 45% Merlot

“What a density for this single 4 hectare plot of vines!  Formerly classified as Haut-Medoc, it was ranked as Margaux appellation in 2007, acknowledging its excellent soil quality!  Its soil is completely what is expected from a top quality Margaux terroir.  Gravelly soil on a deep yellow clay is perfectly adapted to produce very good grapes.”

“Our Margaux is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.  The strong structure attained by the high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon becomes rounder by aging for a full year in oak barrels of which 30 to 40% are new.”

Winemaker’s notes: “Our Pecorino grapes grow in Ortona at 100m from sea level, facing South-East on clay-alkaline soil. Grapes where hand-picked in the second half of September. After the destemming, the grapes are pressed and the must is soon brought to 12 °C temperature to avoid uncontrolled fermentation. Fermentation is made under controlled temperatures in small steel tanks for about one month, using a unique ferment which gives to our wine its own personality. Wine is aged in small steel tanks for about 3 months at controlled temperature and in the absence of oxygen to avoid oxidation and at the end a short period in bottle.”

Tasting notes: “Straw-yellow color with some green highlights. Fruity aroma with citrus and exotic nuances blend in delicate notes of flowers. Well-bodied wine with good structure, slightly mineral finish.”

Méntrida D.O., Spain   ~   Organic

This project began in 2004 after searching for the best vineyards in the mountains of Toledo and Sierra de Gredos by two oenologist friends, Alfonso Chacón and Belarmino Fernández.  These wines are sustainably produced from old vineyards planted in the 1950’s and 60’s with a minimalist intervention approach and ongoing experimentation; they are unique and absolutely beautiful!

“I sampled a very fine collection of wines from Canopy. All the bottles kept the freshness in a warm and ripe vintage like 2015. The vineyards are organically farmed, and everything is fermented with indigenous yeasts; they use neutral barrels (and larger sizes) that do not mark the wines at all. They have reached a very good level, and the wines are transparent with the character of the vintage, the soils and the place. They have come a long way from the early days. Bravo guys!”

Jumilla, Spain   ~   Certified Organic   ~   Vegan Certified

The magic of this new project comes from the hand of Maria Jover, a 28 year old winemaker that has transferred her modern view in wine making to our wines. The organic Monastrell grapes come from very old vines (20-40 years old) maintained from the old system or “Terraje”.

Since the beginning of its creation, the driving force of this winery is to be able to maintain the old system of the “Terraje” that consist of renting the vineyard to the farmers; they take care of the good quality of the vines and give back 7% of the production to the land owner. Almost all 80-90 year old vines in Jumilla are maintained this way but unfortunately, nowadays the owners of the land want to change the system to a more productive irrigated vineyard. The goal of the cellar is to maintain the old vines of the “Terraje” system by paying the higher price for this fruit and therefore maintaining the higher quality of those old vines.”

90 Points – Wine Enthusiast – Editors’ Choice “The aromas are nuanced, with notes of baked bread, lees, stone fruit and citrus zest. Fresh, clean flavors follow. It persists on the finish. Tasty stuff.”

What started in 2015 as a small project of personal interest to me has fast turned into one of the most anticipated and quickly selling wines we produce. Chalice Vineyard is well suited to the production of grapes for sparkling wine due to its high elevation and the generally cool conditions which prevail in the Lorane Valley. Cool growing conditions allow for ripe flavors to develop in the grapes with less sugar accumulation while maintaining higher levels of acid, all important factors in making world class, traditional method, sparkling wine. As with all of the wines we make at Iris Vineyards we carefully study and employ the methods used to make the highest quality sparkling wines in the world. The areas of the vineyard from which we source the grapes for this wine were selected prior to budbreak so the vines could be managed specifically to grow grapes perfectly suited to sparkling wine production. Once at the winery the grapes were gently pressed as whole clusters to minimize extraction of bitter phenolic compounds. The juice was settled in tank and then racked to barrels for a slow, cool fermentation. To maintain bright, fresh acidity we do not allow malolactic fermentation to occur. When the base wine is ready, we do tirage bottling at our winery and store the bottled wine for secondary fermentation and aging in tirage bins. We also perform all riddling, disgorging and labelling operations at our winery.

“This classic Pinot Gris is a brilliant platinum colour with aromas of Asian pear and pineapple with a lively balanced palate of guava and grapefruit. The versatility of this wine allows it to pair well with white fish, scallops, and Pad Thai. This release was carefully crafted from grapes grown in some of the finest vineyards of the Willamette Valley

“The colour of this wine is reminiscent of morning sunlight.  The nose is greeted by aromas of cherry blossom, orange zest, coconut and wild mushroom.  The wine is texturally complex, richness is balance by tightly wound acidity leading to a smooth finish.  In the mouth there are flavors of fig, almond peach backed by hints of mineral and oak.”

“Pomegranate, earthy spice and wild raspberry aromas are complemented by red plums and blueberry liqueur on the palate.”

Winemakers Notes: Each vineyard parcel was selected to compliment the overall blend of this wine. We harvested each vineyard separately, at peak maturity. A blend of Pinot Noir from Chalice Estate Vineyard, Hidden Rock Vineyard (24%), Barkin Dog Vineyard (23%), Robinson Vineyard (20%) and Ten Peaks Vineyard (12%) this wine showcases the quality and diversity of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir as it includes grapes from Chehalem Mountain, Eola Hills, McMinnville and Yamhill- Carlton AVAs. This is a versatile wine, which will pair well with a variety of foods. The fruit was gently destemmed, into stainless steel tanks and to 1.25 ton open top fermenters, to ferment as individual vineyard parcels. Once fermentation was complete, the tanks and fermenters were pressed separately and then barrel aged. After aging through July, the lots were blended together to build this complex, enticing wine.

Vintage Description: The 2020 vintage had slightly warmer than average growing conditions following a warmer than average 2019 and 2018. Budbreak occurred late in April which is typical for out vineyard. Bloom occurred with somewhat unfavorable weather in the last week of June which led to a much lower than average fruit set and small berry size. From there on the season was near average in terms of precipitation and temperature through August. The fall ripening period was marked by extreme wildfires among otherwise excellent weather conditions. In light of this challenge we made some necessary adjustments to our picking decisions and fermentation techniques to make the best of the grapes we were given.

All of the grapes for Areté labeled wines come from our Estate Vineyard and are selected from specific blocks which we take additional care in to maximize quality. Half of the wine in this blend of Pinot Noir clones was fermented in two new 500 liter puncheons with one head removed. The small size of the fermenter keeps temperatures lower, conserving more volatile aromatics, and the early exposure to new oak helps to fix colour in the wine as well as rounding out the palate. The puncheon fermented wines were then aged in new French oak barrels from Seguin Moreau Cooperage purchased specifically with this wine in mind. Very tight grained oak, and toasted over a relatively cool fire for a longer time to achieve a deep but light toast. These new barrels impart structure to the wine and very little new oak flavor. The other two barrels in this blend were selected from the best blocks of our vineyard to compose a harmonious, age worthy and complex blend.
