Intersection Estate is a 10-acre vineyard planted at high density on Oliver’s Golden Mile. Grapevine varieties are matched to the varying slope, aspect and soil composition to allow even ripening and honest expression of fruit flavors and aromas. The vineyard is cultivated with natural, sustainable, and organic farming techniques.

Our winery is small, well-equipped, modern, and versatile. Gentle fruit handling and minimal intervention are key elements in winemaking informed by science, tradition, and constant observation.

Intersection makes wines with no compromise, and represents a personal and intellectual challenge to raise the bar of quality and authenticity for Canadian wines.

All listed prices include 10% PST, 5% GST, and bottle deposit


2015 RIESLING

$19.00 (includes tax and deposit)

A lively, aromatic minerality comes crisp and strong on the nose, intermingled with fresh green apple. On the palate, brief honey sweetness is swiftly cleansed by continued green apple and lime zest. A clean, refreshing finish leaves the mouth watering for more.

A bright, refreshing wine, the Riesling cuts through fat and cools the sensation of spice. Pair with goat cheese salad or oysters on the half-shell with grated horseradish.

2014 MILE'S EDGE WHITE

$17.00 (includes tax and deposit)

Bright, crisp pineapple presents on the nose, intermingled with grapefruit and ripe apricot. The tropical notes follow to the palate, maintaining a note of fresh citrus alongside a minty burst of yellow plum.

A supremely versatile pairing wine, the Mile’s Edge can accompany almost anything. Our favourites are light fare that carry a hint of richness, like sautéed scallops and bacon or baked pesto chicken.

2014 RESERVE VIOGNIER-MARSANNE

$25.00 (includes tax and deposit)

In this singular blend, the intense stone fruit and floral aromas of Viognier link to the orange peel citrus accents and ethereal texture of Marsanne. Whole bunch pressed, fermented in neutral French oak barrels, and aged on lees for 6 months to promote texture and complexity. 

A complex and delightful pairing wine, well-suited to drink alongside white meats, from grilled pork to oysters or sole. Try with sushi for a exciting combination.

2014 RESERVE SAUVIGNON BLANC

$25.00 (includes tax and deposit)

Luscious ripe mango and grilled pineapple on the nose are wreathed in aromas of creamy, toasted cashew. 6 months of oak ageing and lees contact develop a voluptuous texture that maintains a tropical theme carried by persistent, bright acidity. A long and complex finish echoes the roasted nut notes found on the nose.

Pair this wine with rich barbequed or seared dishes such as grilled halibut with chorizo, veal with sautéed wild mushrooms, pumpkin risotto, or honey garlic ribs.

2013 MILEPOST RED

$20.00 (includes tax and deposit)

First created during the cool 2011 season as a response to the temperatures producing fresher, lighter fruit tones, the Milepost is designed as a lively, fruit-driven counterpoint to the robust density seen in the Alluvia and Silica Merlots. While the 2013 season was significantly hotter than the seminal 2011 year, a precise harvest and moderate maceration time has again produced a wine that is juicy and lush, showing deep herbal licorice tones on the nose and soft, stewed dark cherry on the palette. 12 months in gentle French oak has added a subtle layer of complexity and warmth to the finish, and extended bottle ageing prior to release has softened the tannin levels to a full-bodied but gentle state.

2013 CABERNET FRANC *SOLD OUT*

$27.50 (includes tax and deposit)

Ample and voluminous, showing ripe black fruit, mineral, and savory spice notes. Elements of blueberry on the nose lead to a current and blackberry palate framed by fine tannins. An immediate favourite for both our Intersection regulars and newcomers alike.

2013 ALLUVIA MERLOT

$29.00 (includes tax and deposit)

In 2007 we planted one block of Merlot across two distinct soil types: a fine, thin plot of dry silicate sand, and the alluvial wake of an ancient creek system. For three years we created a unified Merlot from the block, until 2012 when we divided the field by soil and formed the Silica and Alluvia Merlots: twins in every way but one. Harvested in tandem and boasting near-identical winemaking, our labour is to isolate the single variable of soil in our flagship wines. Together, the Alluvia and Silica Merlots are paragons of all that we aim to achieve at Intersection: honest wines that truly represent a certain place at a certain time.

Dark wild cherry and licorice on the nose follows into a full, deep palate rich with dark berry and earthy tannin, concluded with a toasty caramel finish. With its full, integrated tannin and bold structure, the Alluvia is robust wine that pairs to excellent effect with seared duck breast or the finest, fattiest steak you can get your hands on.

2013 SILICA MERLOT

$29.00 (includes tax and deposit)

2013 was the second season of our separation between the Alluvia and Silica Merlots. This separation allowed for more specified vineyard management, which together with the consistently hot growing season, resulted in a beautifully stable and uniform crop of fruit. The thin sand caused strain upon the vines, resulting in stronger acid and tannin structure in the fruit. Upon harvest, the Silica is treated to 28 days of fermentation followed by ageing in tight-grained French oak, 30% new. This wine is gravity clarified, meaning that we rack the juice off of the settled sediment rather than pushing it through filter pads. This results in bolder structure, more density, and the designation: “unfiltered.”

A vibrant and concentrated red fruit nose leading into luxurious raspberry torte on the palate with a long, elegant finish. Excellent structure formed by an intermingling of crisp underlying acidity and full, firm tannin. A powerful and robust wine, the Silica pairs beautifully with rack of lamb or with pancetta and baked olives
