The Highly Anticipated Single Varietal Releases for Mother’s Day
What : Singletree Release of Grüner Veltliner
When: Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 14 (12-5:30pm)
Where: Singletree Winery (5782 Mt. Lehman Road, Abbotsford)
Just in time for Mother’s Day is the first chance to sample and purchase the Singletree 2016 Grüner Veltliner. (Retail price is $17.30 per tax)
Only 180 cases of the single varietal white wine were made, making it as exclusive as it is delicious.
This particular varietal, previously blended, was kept as a single bottling as it is special to the matriarch of Singletree Winery, Debbie Etsell, making the Mother’s Day launch that much more meaningful
This Sunday is the perfect time to taste and buy the wine, so stop by with your mom for a beautiful afternoon in the vineyard. The wine is stainless steel fermented, and the only Grüner made in the Fraser Valley.
One can expect fresh aromatics and lively acidity when tasting the Grüner. It’s a dry white wine with aromas of citrus, peach and honey. The wine is amazingly smooth and well rounded.
For members of the trade who seek an allocation, please contact Debbie Etsell | 604-996-2701.
Singletree Winery is in the Mt. Lehman area of Abbotsford, an emerging wine region in the Fraser Valley, the heart of agri-business in British Columbia. The Etsell family has deep roots in the agricultural community.
With careful attention to their land, they are committed to showing the world what the Fraser Valley is capable of: aromatic, crisp, and juicy wines that showcase their unique terroir. Their focused portfolio currently includes Siegerrebe (Siggy), as well as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir Rosé, a Late Harvest Kerner, a white blend called Homestead, and Harness, a Bordeaux-style red blend. New wines this year are a Wild Ferment Siegerrebe (Wild Siggy) and a Grüner Veltliner. A traditional-method sparkling wine will be released in 2018. The wines are made by second generation family member Andrew Etsell, in Summerland, under the guidance of winemaker Matt Dumayne.
The winery is now open daily for visitors, Wednesday through Sunday from 12 noon to 5:30pm.
