"Chardonnay, viognier and gewürztraminer bring plenty of aromatic notes on the nose of this Okanagan white — specifically red apple, peach, pear, melon, mango and spice. A dry, round (but vibrant) medium-bodied white, the Quest white offers peach, spice, red apple and pear notes, with decent length on the finish." 87 Points

Our challenge for this harvest was to sort meticulously to deal with damaged fruit. Once accomplished, I macerated the fruit, cold-soaking each lot for approximately a week before inoculating tanks with a yeast strain chosen to enhance individual varietals uniquely. The wines all went through malolactic fermentation and aged with a mixture of oak selected to complement the flavors of the different wines post-fermentation.
