Farmed on several blocks at our vineyard estate, the temperature swings in that region yield ripe fruit
with bright acidity. Perfect for Pinot Gris. Our wine entices your taste buds with ripe apricot and honeysuckle aromatics. Flavours of pear, pineapple, and white peach are balanced by a firm acidity that results in a wine with tantalizing harmony. In a word – crisp.
The weather in the Okanagan was quite favourable for most of the 2015 season, beginning with an early, mild spring. Budburst was early by two weeks and the continuing mild weather trend coincided with flowering and excellent fruit set in May and June. A hot, dry summer tested our vineyard crews who had to pay careful attention to irrigation regimes and leaf-to fruitratios. Once again, meticulous farming and investment of time, energy and money has assured wine quality. By the time harvest commenced, the season had recorded enough warm, sunny days to top the long-term average heat summation levels. In September temperatures cooled to near normal, especially at night, and rain mostly stayed away providing a long and unpressured harvest period which continued into the first couple of weeks of October. Overall, the extended harvest period allowed for uniform ripening and a very nice end to the season.
