"Attractive fragrant scents of sage honey, apricot and flowers pave the way for a fruity mouthful of aromatic wine. Flavours start with herbs and peach pit and end on a lush off-dry note with strong Okanagan presence." Tasted June 2014 (NWAC) 88 Points

Our challenge for this harvest was to sort meticulously to deal with damaged fruit. With this accomplished, we whole-cluster pressed bunches to tank, where they cold-settled and clarified. After racking off sediments, the wine was inoculated and fermentation took place 100% in stainless steel to preserve the fresh fruit characteristics. This wine saw no malolactic fermentation, which also maintained the crisp nature of the wine. Post-fermentation the wine aged sur lie, which built mouthfeel and lends to the ‘lemon cream’ notes on the palate.
