2019 PINOT BLANC
Winemaking: Our estate Pinot Blanc is sourced primarily from Block 4 of our Golden Mile Bench Vineyard. The Old Vines Block 4 is from the original historic planting in 1968. Some additional fruit is from Block 9 of our estate, planted in 1997/98 using Alsace Clone 54. The lots were picked separately by hand, destemmed and pressed. The two blocks were then cold settled, racked and inoculated with select yeast strains prior to undergoing a long cool ferment for 25 days. Following fermentation, the lots were blended and aged for 5 months in stainless steel. Unoaked with an enticing streak of juicy freshness, the wine is a beautiful representation of the Golden Mile Bench
An elegant, dry white with verve, that carries aromas of Okanagan orchard fruit, peach, nectarine and dried apricot framed with a light touch of sagebrush. The palate opens with mouth-filling peach, and light honey, leading to a fresh minerality. Pair with BBQ bone in pork chops and orchard fruit chutney.
PINOT GRIS VIOGNIER
An enticing blend of Pinot Gris and Viognier, suggesting summertime echoes of key lime, pineapple, and lychee nut. The lush and refreshing palate is bursting with zesty citrus flavours balanced by wildflower honey. Unoaked and incredibly satiating, enjoy with friends, sunshine and light appetizers.
Our unique white blend of Pinot Gris and Viognier is crafted with fruit from select south Okanagan growers. The Pinot Gris grapes for this vintage are from our Vineyard Manager Iqbal Gill‘s Fairview vineyard and our Road 7 vineyard here in Oliver. The Viognier grapes are primarily from our long time growers Star Vineyard located in sunny, Osoyoos and Stone‘s Throw Vineyard on lower Black Sage.
Exclusively at select Save-On-Foods (BC)
Our roots run deep with half century old vines, rooted in the Golden Mile Bench‘s exceptional terroir. Blending sustainable vineyard practices and innovative winemaking, we craft wines of distinction that are an intensely flavoured expression of our historic vineyard.
