A unique style of wine to Vancouver Island, Symphony is ripe and surprisingly full bodied considering our mild climate. Wild berries, currants, dried tobacco and notes of coastal forests on the nose give way to structured tannins, cherries and exotic spices on the palate. Symphony is a blend of Cabernet Libre, Labelle and small percentages of other sparsely planted varieties unique to Vancouver Island.

BCVQA Vancouver Island
October 7-18, 2020
18 months in barriques, 25% new.
Aromas of cherry and herb notes on the nose, followed by flavours of spice, espresso and vanilla on the palate. It's brisk and structured and lends itself well with food.
The fruit for this wine comes from, Unsworth Vineyard and Wescott Vineyard.
Symphony is a unique blend. 51% of the blend is Cabernet Libre providing structure. 26% is Labelle which adds dark ripe fruit flavours to the blend. At Unsworth we are rare in that we work with several new varieties to the world of viticulture including 05-83 which makes up 20%. Although yet to be named, we are amongst a small handful of growers on Vancouver Island to work with this grape. 05-83 adds freshness and surprisingly ripe tannins given our cool climate. The remaining 2% is the white variety Petit Milo which adds freshness and floral notes to Symphony.
Food Pairing Notes
Symphony is great with barbequed game meats, or seared duck breast with mushrooms and beets.
