Growing Conditions

The 2014 vintage started well and was near perfect with some calling it the “best ever”! Winter and spring rains followed by encouraging July weather allowed the vines to focus on berry-set along with growing bunches. Hot weather in the summer months and an absence of rain saw the vine respond appropriately, with canopies in excellent balance, however, well thought out drip irrigation was a saviour this year, allowing the vines to maintain suf cient health to ripen. The dry, warm and hot summer produced good growth permitting all varieties to ripen with excellent balance. Cooler autumn months along with further assistance by rigorous leaf plucking and bunch thinning helped promote distinct varietal avours. When the Okanagan’s warmest and driest growing season concluded on November 4th, it was judged as challenging but ultimately rewarding. Vineyards lived up to their pedigrees producing outstanding wines for the 2014 vintage.

Nose

An enticing bouquet of Anjou pear, guava, and kiwi.

Palate

The mouthfeel is lush and crisp with white peach, apricot, and orange blossom honey avours intermingling with candied ginger and spice for a tangy nish. This unoaked Pinot Grigio is a perfect marriage of fruit and acidity. Delicious and refreshing on the palate.

Food Pairing

Pinot Grigio 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.
