Description

Vintage Report

Our vineyard estates throughout the Okanagan reported “excellent quality” in reds and whites, though the season was not without significant challenges: late bud break, cool, unsettled conditions during flowering and unseasonably cool summer weather. These particular stresses throughout the growing season meant that our vineyard crews were prepared for a late harvest and hard at work at all times to ensure uniform quality at moderately reduced yields. A challenging September dampened expectations even further, with some nights so cold that frosts were a real possibility. However, a dry and sunny October saved the season, making up for lost time – fully ripening grapes without losing their crucial acidity. Overall, flavour and balance ensured quality wines in all varieties, albeit in much smaller quantities. The whites are fresh and juicy while the red wines are concentrated and well structured.

Tasting Notes

A densely packed nose featuring cocoa, black cherry, tobacco and lavender. The palate is marked by red currants, coupled with classic notes of cedar, oak spice and wild herbs.
