An early harvest marked the 2014 vintage in the Okanagan, starting on September 2nd. As the harvest progressed with warmer than normal overnight temperatures in late September and early October we saw a slight delay in development but by mid-October, cool nights set in and brought things back on track, delivering very clean fruit with exceptional varietal character across all varieties and sites. The 2014 harvest brought in higher than anticipated crop levels with most of the increases coming from white varieties as well as Pinot Noir and Merlot. All grapes were in house by November 11th.
The 2014 Icewine harvest was November 11-12th 2014 with ideal temperatures of -10C to -12C. The grapes were machine harvested in the early hours of morning and the frozen grapes were basket pressed. Fermentation was carried out by a select yeast, known to enhance varietal character.
Food Pairing Notes
