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)

Lively fruit nose, brimming with the scent of fresh rain on hot stones. On the palate, crisp green apple merges with zesty lime peel to create a bright and refreshing wine that belies a gentle softening sweetness.

2014 MILE'S EDGE WHITE

$19.00 (includes tax and deposit)

Fermented in stainless steel to enhance freshness, this blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier combines the expressive tropical fruit notes of warm climate Sauv Blanc with the uplifting structure of Viognier. An extended ripening season provided this wine with generous fruit flavours of grapefruit, pineapple, and crisp peach.

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. This is a wine to complement rich and exotic cuisine, from samosas to sushi.

2014 RESERVE SAUVIGNON BLANC

$25.00 (includes tax and deposit)

A richly textured Sauvignon Blanc, demonstrating elements of bright pineapple and candied fruit. Whole bunch pressed with free run juice fermented 35 days in new and neutral French oak barrels, aged on lees for 6 months, and blended with stainless steel Sauv Blanc. The tropical notes and seductive texture are supported by well integrated oak that lends a tone of grilled fruit to this gorgeous wine.

Depending on storage and temperature, harmless crystals ("wine diamonds") may form in the bottle.

2011 MILEPOST RED

$19.00 (includes tax and deposit)

100% Merlot harvested at peak ripeness in early November and made in a traditional method using small open vats. A bright and lively Merlot owing its crisp and refreshing nature to the cooler season in 2011. Elements of raspberry pervade through the mild oak and subtle tannins. A fresh and appealing red with a more delicate character.

2013 CABERNET FRANC

$25.00 (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 Xwine regulars and newcomers alike.

2013 ALLUVIA MERLOT

$29.00 (includes tax and deposit)

A limited production, single vineyard Merlot from Intersection’s estate vineyard. Deep rock and silt soils produce an age-worthy wine of purity, elegance, and structure with bold notes of dark wild cherry and licorice. A true example of how soil composition can deeply effect a wine’s flavour, as the much different “Silica” wine is made with the same grapes, only planted meters apart in different soil types.

2013 SILICA MERLOT

$29.00 (includes tax and deposit)

Estate grown Merlot rooted in sandy soils produces low yields and intense concentration. Pure ripe fruit with floral overtones on the nose leads to a generous palate, with seamless texture and velvet tannins. Single vineyard, limited availability. Try beside the “Alluvia” for an interesting exercise in how soil composition can imbue incredible difference in flavour.
