This unoaked Pinot Blanc delivers on the classic style…mouthwatering acidity with great fruit flavours.
This grape varietal thrives in the Okanagan Valley but still requires a delicate hand. Our vibrant Pinot
Blanc begins with aromas of Golden Delicious apple and white peach then unfolds into flavourful layers
of pink grapefruit, nectar and a lemon-lime crisp acidity throughout the bright mouthfeel.
2012 was a refreshing change from the 2010 and 2011 vintages. 2012 was much warmer throughout the
season starting with the usual spring rainfall. By June, the vines had plenty of water through careful
irrigation management on our estate vineyards to ensure healthy growth coupled with deliberate, but
light, pruning. The dry summer led to veraison under ideal warm conditions. Harvest began in September
for most of the white grape varietals and extended into early November for the reds, a constant
reminder that the Okanagan Valley is one of the world’s northern-most wine regions. 2012 bodes well
for riper, fruit-expressive wines.
Pinot Blanc is a crowd-pleaser with a refreshing taste profile.
Delicious with a plate of oysters, beet and goat’s cheese salad, sushi, creamy Brie with baguette slices, or
chicken with steamed broccoli.
