Tasting notes

The wine opens with aromas of Asian spice leading into pear and ginger. Yellow peach flavours dance on the palate with lemon and lime, resulting in a wine with enticing harmony. In a word – crisp.

Viticultural notes

For many Okanagan vintners, 2016 extends a run of exceptional years to four in a row. The weather was ‘optimal’ with an early start to the season. April and May were warmer than average and bud break was three weeks early! The lack of heat waves in the summer kept sugar levels and phenolic maturity in sync so that ripening progressed slowly and predictably. The berries were firm and had perfectly healthy skins and therefore vivid, deep flavours, great acidity and excellent freshness. November 9th marked the final day of our longest recorded harvest – 76 days.
