Stevens Block with warm roasted chestnut soup

Blanc de Blanc Sparkling
Our first 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine, made in the traditional champenoise style. The base wine was aged for two years, then underwent its secondary fermentation and 28 months of bottle-aging, before being disgorged with no dosage in the spring of 2019. This elegant wine is prêt à faire la fête!
Stevens Block Chardonnay
Our family-owned “Old Main Road Vineyard” is located on a terrace on the famed and recently approved Sub-GI, Naramata Bench. One of our four acres which was planted in 2006 with French clones 4 and 5; has the steepest slope and is the coolest part of the site. As the vines have matured this section of the vineyard has developed its own unique terroir and has justified its own designation of “Stevens Block”.
At the winery the fruit was fed directly into the press with an ensuing long gentle whole cluster pressing employed. Only the finest, purest juice from the early stages of the pressing was used for this wine with the more astringent so called “hard press” kept separate. A long, cool indigenous fermentation of two months occurred in a stainless-steel vessel, subsequently the wine was left on its fine lees for a further six months in older French oak barrels. A natural malolactic fermentation occurred.
McLean Creek Road Chardonnay
Originally planted in 1994, our family owned “McLean Creek Road Vineyard” is located in Okanagan Falls, BC. The vineyard has a predominantly steep southerly aspect with the soil comprised of alluvial and glacial deposits making up a mix of gravel and sandy loams. The Chardonnay is planted in two separate blocks, one on the far east side of the south facing slope and the other on the west end of the slope. The variation of east and west leads to differences in flavour development and in turn more complexity in the finished wine.
Drink this wine now or cellar up to 7 to 10 years.
McLean Creek Road Pinot Noir
We produced 1,000 cases of this single vineyard Pinot Noir from our estate vineyard on McLean Creek Road in Okanagan Falls.
For shipping outside BC please order by December 6; for shipping within BC please order by December 13. Earlier than later is always best.
