A combination of fruit sourced from Seven Mountain Vineyards in West Kelowna and our estate in Southeast Kelowna.
The Riesling is entirely hand-harvested. 50% of the fruit is whole bunch pressed, while the other 50% undergoes maceration and cold soaks on skins for 24 hours. This process provides complex fruit aromas and increased mouth texture. The settled juice is then fermented in stainless steel tank.
Pronounced flavours of apple, nectarine, honeydew melon, and white floral notes are present on the nose. This is greeted by candied lemon, nectar, and vanilla on the palate. There is a hint of slate minerality, and the mouthfeel is soft, with a crème brulé finish. Enjoy now or cellar for 12+ years.

92. Half of the fruit was pressed directly. The other half was whole bunch pressed and – unusual for Riesling – stomped by foot to add texture and, as the winery explains, “to increase the complexity of aromas.” The wine is juicy on the palate, with aromas and flavours of lemon, lime and grapefruit. The bright acidity will support cellaring this wine for a few years. ~ John Schreiner on Wine
