WineDiva's Review

Stoneboat, on the Black Sage Gravelbar in Oliver, is now owned by Rudy Verhoeff and Kyla Richey, former professional volleyball athletes. They also own Valley Commons, is a winery established in the District Wine Village in Oliver in 2021. Both wineries fall under the Verhoeff Group of Companies, which is headed by Paul Verhoeff, Rudy's father. The family also owns a flooring company, a brewery and restaurants in the Fraser Valley.

Pinotage is South African variety (Cinsault crossed with Pinot Noir) has its fans and its critics, but when you talk about this rare variety in British Columbia, Stoneboat is usually the first to spring to mind.
It's been a decade since I've tried this wine and it's remained true to it's past.
Expect notes of tar and cherries, black chocolate and leather, salted licorice and charred strawberries with toasted spice. It has a savoury palate; salty and herbal with cocoa,red berries, toasted spice, leather and bacon fat. Fresh with bitter undertones.
