Growing Conditions

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 Septem- ber 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.

Winemaking

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.

Nose

Our vibrant Pinot Blanc begins with aromas of Golden Delicious apple and white peach.

Palate

Unfolds into flavourful layers of pink grapefruit, nectar and a lemon-lime crisp acidity throughout the bright mouthfeel.

Food Pairing

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.
