IN THE GLASS: cherry, raspberry, strawberry, clove, white pepper, tobacco, cedar, earthy; medium body.


This single vineyard wine comes from the Rubis Family Vineyard, on the Naramata Bench. This is a young vineyard that is gently sloping and west facing. It produces a bright, fruit forward Pinot Noir that is very indicative of the Naramata Bench. The grapes are hand-picked.


The grapes are processed immediately: de-stemmed, but not crushed, directly into small half ton fermenters where they were cold soaked for five days, before a wild ferment commenced. In total the grapes spent about 21 days on skins before being pressed. The wine was aged in French Oak barrels, 30% new, for 10 months before being bottled.

Residual Sugar: 2.8 g/L

Critic's Rating

Inviting aromatics of raspberry, red cherry and lifted herbal notes, then on to a palate of red fruit and supple tannins.
