This wine is reminiscent of a traditional white Bordeaux. On the nose there are aromas of lemongrass, gooseberry and guava, along with grassy and herbaceous notes. On the palate there are flavours of white pear, mango and lemon-lime. This wine is fresh and zesty, with a nice crisp finish.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from Lyndsay's sister, Eira Thomas' Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. The grapes for this wine were hand picked, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented slowly at low temperatures. (12°C) to preserve the aromatics. Fermentation too 28 days to complete. Post fermentation, the wines were blended together to make this wine reminiscent of a traditional Bordeaux blend.
