Zinfandel adds jammyberries, with Syrah contributing plum and pepper.Together they make a bold wine with abundant berryflavours and rich tannin, making it an ideal base forsomething a little extra.

    In a Winexpert first, juice for this limited release was
    pre-oaked in-house, steeping for several months with
    whisky oak chips specially sourced from Wayne Gretzky
    Estates Winery and Distillery. During this 6-month
    steep, the juice absorbs flavours and tannin from the
    whisky oak, adding roundness to the body, elevating
    tannin, and infusing it with nuanced sweet spice, brown
    sugar and vanilla character. These whisky-influenced
    sweet notes round out a bold wine rich with flavours of
    blackcurrant, jammy wildberry and plum, underlaid with
    mocha, spice, and smoky toasted notes.


    Try aged cheeses, chicken mole, or bison burgers
    topped with roasted red pepper and caramelized
    onions. A great option for beef brisket, spicy sausage,
    or black bean chili.

  • About the oak

    Whisky oak is not included. INFUSION is steeped with whisky oak chips prior to being added to the craft winemaking kit, allowing the juice to absorb flavour from the wood over the course of several months, enhancing its profile.
