We are excited to make the following suggestions for your wine purchasing, including a Wine Club and #FavouriteThings exclusive!
2019 Heritage Viognier
Naramata Bench terroir and a long hang-time have created a wine with refined aromatic intensity. Think of this as a “summer chardonnay”. Our Viognier has intriguing fragrances of spring blossoms and honeysuckle, with hints of Chai spice.
Viognier pairs well with light pastas, fresh scallops and fragrant soft cheeses.
2019 Heritage Pinot Gris
Vineyard blocks were chosen for tropical characters to complement the spicy, floral oak flavours of Tokay wood. Given extended time in barrel sur lies with batonnage (stirring) to create a creamy midpalate.
Our classic Pinot Gris—luscious ripe fruit created scents of orange blossoms and vanilla mingled with tropical fruit aromas followed by a rich and supple mid-palate.
