Just a few reasons I chose this winery to feature:
🍀 If you like aromatic white wines, we have a very special single vineyard Ehrenfelser available – only 300 cases produced. 

😻 The two red wines are big and juicy with a tremendous sense of value. These two reds over-deliver big time.

👌 Included is a terrific Viognier with a silly-small amount of 100 cases produced. You can be one of a few Canadians to have this outstanding bottle.

💖 Evolve Cellars is the sister winery of Time Winery and McWatters Collection, under the direction of Lynzee Schatz, a rising-star winemaker in Canada. I totally fell in love with everything she’s making.

Below you will find my notes on this winery and the wines offered in an exclusive tasting pack. 

Cheers,
Carl

Carl's Notes

Evolve Cellars is located in Penticton, BC and is under the ownership umbrella of Five Vines Cellars; along with TIME Winery and the McWatters’ Collection. 

With Evolve Cellars, my intention was to find friendly and approachable wines, providing a pure expression of the terroir of the south Okanagan.

From Osoyoos to the Similkameen Valley, to Penticton and Oliver, Evolve Cellars source grapes from local growers that can produce fruit-forward, crisp, approachable, well-balanced and affordable wines. The crisp flavour profile mimics the refreshing coolness of the Okanagan Lake, the same inspiration behind the turquoise paint strokes found on the labels. 

The single-vineyard Ehrenfelser is an aromatic white wine, a rare and delicious find! The two red wines in this pack over-deliver big time, and are big and juicy. The Viognier is another rare special wine – only 100 cases produced! Overall, I fell in love with all the wines that rising-star winemaker Lynzee Schatz and her team are producing.
Winemaker Lynzee Schatz was raised in the Okanagan and started her career in the cellar at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. There she became interested in winemaking, and this led her to Australia to start her formal wine studies. 

Schatz studied Bachelor of Wine Science from Charles Sturt University. She traveled extensively and completed vintages at several wineries including Pisoni Vineyards in California, Domaine Chandon, Yeringberg in Australia's Yarra Valley, Tawse, and Angels Gate in Ontario.
Lynzee returned to BC in 2014 and spent the next five years at Vancouver Urban Winery, Postmark Brewing and Okanagan Crush Pad until starting in 2019 as a winemaker at ENCORE Vineyards.
Now that Five Vines Cellars purchased ENCORE Vineyards, Lynzee leads the winemaking team for TIME Winery, Evolve Cellars, and McWatters Collection. Lynzee is carrying on the traditions of these three storied brands, to make wines at the highest standards, in handcrafted small batches.

One of my favorite wines of this portfolio. Lots of aromas and super bright aromatics of tropical fruit charge out of the glass.

2016 Shiraz
