About this winery

Striking. Rugged terrain and a pristine, deep lake define our region. The Okanagan Valley, British Columbia is the wine world's best kept secret. Here, latitude and altitude synthesize to form something truly unique.

Product notes

FRITZI'S VINEYARD This tiny vineyard comprises one single parcel right at the foot of a dormant volcano. White rock, including quartz form the bedrock, imparting a distinctive minerality in the wines. Named after Anthony von Mandl's 102 year old mother, this heritage block faces south east, creating a sun sink which encourages intense fruit that is remarkably challenging to pick, but it then rewards us handsomely.

Winemaking notes

Spontaneous Fermentation, 17 months french extra tight grain oak.

Tasting notes

The fruit is dark fruited with round tannins that persist across the palate and through a very long finish.
