6 x Assorted: Rigour & Whimsey – Okanagan Falls, BC

Winning Bid: $70.00

Item Value: $165


•3 Bottles 2019 Hyperdrive: The 2019 Hyperdrive is a short skip at lightspeed through hyperspace from the 2018 Flux Capacitor. They are the same but different. The Flux Capacitor was a co-fermentation of 6 grape varieties. Hyperdrive is a blend of 2 independently fermented varieties: Pinot Blanc and Viognier. The Pinot Blanc is the spine and structure of this wine with ample orchard fruit and acidity. The Viognier is the coaxium – the hyperfuel bending space and time at will. Highly unstable and explosive on its own, the Viognier has an impact on this blend that far outweighs its 30% fraction.

•3 Bottles 2019 Gamay Noir: This wine is everything people loved about the 2018 with amped up structural integrity. The texture is more robust from tannin and there is a slightly more sappy aroma and flavour; both of these are probably due to the greater time this wine spent with juice contacting the stems compared to 2018. Mostly, they stomped more. The other fact of note is that they tripled the production of this wine in 2019.

Rigour & Whimsy is owned by husband and wife team Costa & Jody Gavaris. They currently focus on amber or orange wines as well as Gamay and Syrah. The name Rigour & Whimsy is an homage to their shared commitment to seeking balance in themselves, in their relationships, and in the natural world.
Bottles must be picked up in Vancouver or Richmond.
