For the 2019 vintage we have brought back this white blend - a classic Rhône Valley combination of Roussanne and Marsanne grown and made on the Osoyoos East Bench of the Okanagan Valley. Roussanne and Marsanne are frequently blended together and produce rich and complex wines, with incredible structure and longevity.
This blend of Roussanne and Marsanne brings out the best of both varieties, while showcasing what these varieties are capable of in a South Okanagan terroir. The Roussanne Marsanne is a dry wine, with medium body and pale-yellow hue. The nose, while extremely delicate, is quite complex. The aroma invites you in with notes of apple blossom, pear, light brioche and wet stone. The palate follows suit with apricot and white flowers, carried by a creamy texture, and bright acidity and minerality to balance. This elegant wine with a crisp, lengthy finish is ready to drink now or can be enjoyed over the next three years if retaining the crisp, bright characters is the objective. Aging further will for allow development of more secondary flavour characteristics from the Marsanne such as marzipan, honey and caramel, and the light oak to surface.
