Freudian Sip 2016



The fruits for this immensely popular blend were harvested from separate blocks in the fall of 2016.  Each variety of grape was crushed and de-stemmed separately, and was allowed 2-3 hours to sit on the skins with a selected enzyme to help extract the aromatic compounds.  From there, they were sent to the bladder press for a slow, low-pressure squeeze. Each variety of must was then transferred to stainless steel tanks to ferment separately.

A combination of  5 different yeasts were used in the different tanks of grape must to enhance the natural fruitiness of the individual grape varieties. Fermentation temperature ranged from 12-18 degrees, allowing the wine to slowly ferment and bring forward a full range of fruity aromas and flavors.

After alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wines were chilled to -2 for cold stabilization, and treated with a bentonite fining to provide heat stability. The wine was then left in stainless steel vessels to age and mature. The final blending process started in December, which allowed the different wines time to harmonize and settle before bottling on February 1, 2017.


An immensely popular wine with intense aromas of green apple, citrus zest, petrol and tropical fruit, that meld with the concentrated flavors of lemon rind, peach and red apples on the palate. The off-dry finish is balanced with mouth-watering acidity, creating an all around consumer friendly, approachable wine.

We have just moved to the Okanagan and I discovered this wine at a local grocery store. Was I surprised when I tried it! It has a lovely rich and fruity quality and is a wonderful blended white wine. It has certainly become my go to choice. I know I am not the only one who enjoys this wine as it is always cleared off of the shelf quickly every time it is restocked.

My husband and I love this wine- he’s not a fan of most wines but it’s the perfect blend of fruit, easy to drink and pairs well with almost anything! Therapy is always a stop for us when we are in the Okanagan! This last summer we also became big fans of their Port, a very different taste from most of the others we’ve tried! Very yummy!
