Our Available Wines

Generations

“Generations” L’Acadie Blanc is suggestive of Schatz’s essence and Hessenland’s journey – it is the story of family, community and heritage infused into every vine and vintage. Hessenland’s second generation owner-innkeepers, Frank and Liz, carry forward the traditions of their parents while working with their neighbours and innovating along the way.  Schatz Winery is a milestone chapter in this evolving story.  A wine with aromas of green melon, golden delicious apple, and floral notes of honeysuckle and fresh cut hay. The palate is nicely balanced with ripe tropical fruits, green spice and a fresh grapefruit note on the finish. Would pair perfectly with white fish, scallops, and creamy pasta dishes.

19-84

‘19-84’ is the second vintage in Schatz Winery’s inaugural collection.  Harvested in October of 2018, its namesake offers a double take in meaning.  The wine celebrates its release on Hessenland Inn’s 35th anniversary and the founding of the winery in 2019, while paying homage to the Inn’s founding year of 1984.  Crisp and clean with great balance; flavours are quite intense showing ripe yellow skinned apples, ripe pineapple and mango, with a spicy white pepper note on the finish. Great aperitif wine or would pair well with spicy Asian food or a roasted chicken dish.

Blume Vidal

“Blume,” meaning ‘flower’ in German, is the name given to this Vidal.  Named for Hessenland co-founder and Green Thumb Goddess, Christa Ihrig, this wine celebrates the glorious gardens juxtaposed, and lovingly tended to, alongside Schatz’s vines. This Vidal shows off fresh picked peaches on the nose with notes of apricot and citrus, pretty aromas with hints of white lilies and apple blossom. The palate has nice texture with flavours of ripe tropical fruit, with a clean citrussy finish. Enjoy on the deck, around the pool or garden side.

Sisters Rosé VQA

This beautifully blended Rosé is named for the two ‘goldschatz’ sisters taking up the youngest seats at the Ihrig family table. As with Frankie and Harriet, the daughters of Eric and Lauren, “Two Sisters” brings the unique attributes of the Vidal and Marquette varietals into a delicious blend of personality. 

 

A beautiful light salmon colour, aromas of strawberry, cherry, and mango with just a touch of ginger spice. The palate is all about fresh wild strawberry with just a hint of minerality, there is a wonderful freshness that leaves you wanting another sip. The finish is quite long and balanced with fresh citrus peel. The perfect wine with white pizza with a hint of spice or simply on its own.

Musuko Marquette

Musuko, meaning “son” in Japanese, is the name given to this Marquette harvested in 2018. The vintage name reflects the love owner-inn keepers Frank and Liz have for their beloved “Schatz”, Sebastian, while giving a special nod to his passion for Japanese martial arts.  Aromas of black currant, black raspberry, and blueberry with some sweet cherry notes on the finish, nice balance of tannin and acid with just a hint of pepper and black olives on a long finish.
