CANADA’S TOP RIESLING
Nominated, 2020 Decanter Wine of the Year
From a blind tasting of 138 Canadian Rieslings, Martin’s Lane Fritzi’s Riesling was the joint highest scoring wine across the country.
Premier fruit selections reveal a bold wine of substance and power. Unique vessels yield a complex, harmonious wine.
“Martin’s Lane’s small-lot Rieslings from three diverse estate vineyards are well-defined, distinct and solid across the board, but my nod goes to Fritzi’s. The southeast-facing parcel sits at the foot of a dormant volcano and vines are now 25 years old. After giving it lots of air, this is awash with searing mineral strength. Exotically scented jasmine pokes through sunbaked gravel. Powerfully concentrated and tactile, it wraps up with a saline twist. Drinking Window 2022 – 2032.”
– Michaela Morris, Decanter –
THIS IS WINEMAKING ON THE EDGE.
The structure follows the natural slope and allows gravity to lead, eliminating mechanization entirely. Gravity-flow offers the gentlest handle of fruit allowing full site expression of our four distinct vineyards. With the tiers of the winery, all stages of winemaking can occur in five succinct movements. All this to create world-class Riesling and Pinot Noir.
MARTIN’S LANE WINERY.
Naramata Ranch Vineyard
A unique, single vineyard parcel harvested after an early period of sustained cold temperatures. The result: a complex, sweet wine that is rich, luscious and spicy.
With it’s sun-scorched earth and jagged rocky hillsides, the North Okanagan is a place where the elements reign. The area is blessed with warm days, cool nights and the lowest rainfall and humidity of any wine-producing region. Our unique latitude and altitude conspire to yield a dramatic viticultural landscape which produce intense and balanced fruit.
