Critic's Rating 92 pts

Blend of viognier, pinot gris and gewürztraminer. Off-dry in style with tropical aromas and flavours of passion fruit, guava, grapefruit and melon and a hint of spice. The wine is nicely balanced with a small amount of residual sugar giving a soft supple mouth feel. Serve slightly chilled.

Winemaker Notes: The grapes were hand-picked, at peak ripeness, then destemmed and pressed after a short period of skin contact time. The juice was then allowed to settle before transferring to another stainless steel tank where it is inoculated with yeast starting the temperature-controlled fermentation. Each wine is fermented individually with select yeast strains. Following fermentation the wines were racked off the lees several times over the next few months before blending, finning, filtering and bottling.

Aromatic nose and palate of peach, pear and lychee. Off dry with zippy acidity and citrus flavours on the mid palate to finish. Nice balance with a medium long finish. Tasted blind at NWAC June 2023.

  • Connoisseur Note(s):

    A vibrant aromatic white with tropical fruit aromas. Favours of passionfruit, guava, honeydew melon and grapefruit. A lovely textured mouthfeel with acidity and sugar in perfect balance. Make sure not to overchill so the tropical notes shine through. 91 Points — Julian Park, BC Wine Trends
