Growing Conditions

The 2012 vintage is a reminder that the Okanagan is one of the world’s northern-most serious wine regions. After a generally dry, warm growing season, the last few weeks of harvest cooled consider- ably. The summer ensured ideal fruit development. Veraison took place under nearly ideal conditions that lasted from mid-August through September. The continuation of mild autumn weather gave promise that the grapes developed thick skins and expectations of flavourful, extracted wines. Harvest began on September 13th with sunny skies and moderate temperatures, delivering the early ripening varieties. The night cooled drastically in late September, preserving the freshness of our top quality grapes bringing welcome respite after an incredibly dry growing season.

Winemaking

Our 2012 Late Harvest Vidal was completely sourced from a single vineyard on our estate in Naramata. This bench vineyard benefits from the moderating lake effect that extends the ripening period. The extra hangtime, when the weather conditions are perfect, create an opportunity for a late harvest wine to be created.

Harvest

Date: January 2013

Palate

A winery exclusive, our Late Harvest Vidal bursts with apricot, mango, lychee, and caramel flavours that are reinforced with enchanting citrus notes.

Food Pairing

A delectable way to end a meal, or enjoy with feta cheese or camembert, roasted nuts, dried fruits and cheesecake.
