Intense tropical fruit and floral, perfumed nose. Light and fresh palate. A pinot noir/muscat/chasselas cross, this wine is an aromatic explosion. Can be paired with sushi, ceviche, or BBQ halibut with mango and cilantro salsa. Also delicious on its own as an aperitif.
On the southern edge of the Naramata Bench, this eight acre vineyard overlooks the city of Penticton and Okanagan Lake. The twenty year old ungrafted vines are deeply rooted in a mix of silt, organic matter and gravel. The gentle westward slope at the base of Campbell Mountain ensures good drainage and ideal exposure.
Whole bunches were gently pressed and the free run juice was settled overnight. Fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks. The wine remained on fine lees for five months before bottling.
