Castanet - Eight great red wines for the holidays - Moon Curser Syrah 2021

"Wine: Moon Curser Vineyards 2021 Syrah

Why drink it: Syrah grows so well in the Okanagan, and Moon Curser makes an excellent wine with it. Well-balanced, savoury and bold, it has flavours of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and blueberry, with notes of cinnamon and vanilla on the nose.

Pair with: Spicy sausages, spicy red pasta sauces (arrabbiata or puttanesca, perhaps), lamb or charcuterie."

"Moon Curser Roussanne Marsanne 2022 (Canada)

One of the most exciting wines in the current crop of Moon Curser releases, this white blend features roussanne and marsanne grapes that were co-fermented in a stainless steel tanks and some smaller French oak barrels to build complexity and texture. The style is rich and inviting, with appealing yellow apple, honey and citrus flavours and nice balance between the fruit, acid and alcohol. Vegan friendly. Drink now to 2028.

The Vancouver Sun - Anthony Gismondi: B.C. Wine Pick - Moon Curser Arneis 2022 - 91 points

Anthony Gismondi selects BC Wine Pick - Moon Curser Arneis 2022 91 points!

"BC Wine of the Week

Moon Curser Arneis 2022, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada

91/100

Arneis is a rare white grape from Italy’s Piedmont region that Moon Curser has successfully grown on the south Okanagan Valley Osoyoos East Bench in near complete obscurity. Arneis translates to little rascal, or troublemaker, in the Piemontese dialect, which refers to its problematic propensity to grow. Still, it hasn’t stopped Moon Curser from releasing some terrific bottles led by the latest 2022 label. The nose is incredible, mineral and saline all in one, while the palate is awash with restrained yellow fruit and kiwi with just enough acidity to finish with vibrancy. My favourite match is roast chicken stuffed with mushrooms, but it is also a magical sushi wine."

Nikki highlights Moon Curser in

"2. Treat yo self: Three bubbles to drink right now

Moon Curser 2021 Eclipse $34.99: I was absolutely convinced that this crisp, aromatic smasher of a sparkler was for wine-club members only, so imagine my delight when I just checked and yes, it looks like you can buy it online (honestly, it would be worth joining the club to enjoy it anyhow). This is a terrific traditional method bubble made with a rather less traditional Roussanne and Marsanne blend. Yes, please."

San Pellegrino’s Fine Dining Lovers - Out of the smoke in Canada’s western winelands

"It’s an hour and a half drive south to Osoyoos Lake, which Moon Curser Vineyards overlooks. Named for moonlight-evading gold rush smugglers, Moon Curser specialises in “clandestine” grape varieties like touriga nacional and tannat. I sip on their 2021 malbec which tastes like blueberry pie. Tannat is their bestseller and winemaker Christian Scagnetti aptly describes it as a “fireplace wine.”"
