Gorgeously aromatic, this vintage is a blend of 2/3 Pinot Gris and 1/3 Viognier from longtime farmers in the south Okanagan. The Pinot Gris grapes were handpicked from our estate vineyards and our vineyard manager’s property in Oliver. The nicely ripened Viognier was sourced from 3 select vineyards in Okanagan Falls, Oliver and Osoyoos. Following harvest, the grapes were sorted and whole berry pressed to best preserve the fresh, crisp flavours. A long cool ferment in stainless steel of 29 days at 12-13°C in stainless steel preserved the varietal’s bright characteristics. After fermentation the chosen lots were racked, blended, and further aged for 3 months prior to bottling. This was an exceptional year to ripen fruit in the South Okanagan, with the small berries and smaller than average crop making this a memorable vintage.
