Dolcetto featured in Culinaire Magazine

Our 2019 Dolcetto has just been featured in an article by Tom Firth, in Culinaire Magazine out of Calgary.

 
Stag’s Hollow 2019 Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard Dolcetto, Okanagan Falls British Columbia

Dolcetto is a grape that is rarely seen outside of Italy, but there are a number of places it seems to be perfectly at home – including at Stag’s Hollow in Okanagan Falls. A fine balance of earthiness (and a whiff of smoke at first) on the nose with good support from black plums and spiciness. On the palate things start to sing with brightness to the fruits and a crisp, thoughtful finish. A fine alternative to a pinot noir this season. See full feature here.
