WineDiva's Review

Founded in 2001 by winemaker Ted Kane, River Stone is a small estate winery located in Oliver BC. It's comprised of two estate vineyards focusing primarily on Bordeaux-varieties and aromatic whites; the tasting room was opened in 2010.
Made from Merlot grown in the estate River Stone Vineyard, carbonation was added to the wine just prior to bottling.
A light red-salmony hue the wine delivers sour cherry and wild red berries, watermelon peel, charred orange zest, tobacco, rhubarb and faint spice aromas. It's a fizzy wine with notable structure and some grip in the mouth. Tart red fruit, tobacco, herbal and spice flavours dominate.
