Tasting Notes
A blend of three classic Rhone varieties—Roussanne (75%), Marsanne (10%), Viognier (5%) with a dollop of Chardonnay (10%) added for good measure. This wine shows exceptional balance and purity of fruit; a versatile wine that is evocative of beachy summer days on Okanagan Lake.
Vineyard Notes
A cold Canadian winter, unusually wet spring, and dry summer yielded wines with excellent balance and distinct varietal flavours. Crops were lighter than normal, but the vintage will be remembered for unprecedented flood and drought conditions; and a persistent haze from nearby forest ?res. While not directly affecting our grape-growing areas, the haze blanketed the sun coverage, preventing the customary heat spikes and positively impacted the growing season by slowing down the grape ripening periods and flavour development. Ripening was assisted by the rigorous leaf plucking and bunch thinning of our dogged, never-say-die vineyard crew. Ultimately, slightly lower yields and phenomenal fruit quality delivered an excellent 2017 vintage, characterized by high flavour concentration, moderate alcohol, balanced tannins, complexity and natural acidity.
Winemaker Notes
Each varietal in this wine was processed individually and the final blend assembled with care and consideration. The blend is comprised of fruit that is 91% from Osoyoos, 6% from Penticton, 3% from Naramata vineyards. The result is a dry complex blend that shows energy and tension throughout. Only 375 cases produced.
