Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh and crisp with a short to medium finish, this varietal tends to be richly aromatic and this wine is no exception. Notes of ginger, honey and quince dominate the nose, while the palate displays notes of pear and lime.
Vineyard Notes
Early Spring temperatures brought a rapid start to the 2016 growing season. Mid to late Spring saw temperatures cool off, bringing in a great deal of rain. This hampered berry development slightly but the warm summer days followed by cool summer nights more than made up for it. This temperature fluctuation allows sugar to develop during the day, with acidity that develops at night, resulting in whites with excellent fruit flavours and bright acidity. Red wine varietals benefited from an early growing season as well, which allowed them to ripen on the vine for much longer than a typical harvest. The cooler fall weather helped the grapes retain moisture which resulted in a more subtle fruit profile with supple, smooth tannins.
Winemaker Notes
Harvested on October 4th from our McIntyre Bluff Vineyard, the grapes were fermented to dryness with a specially selected yeast strain and stored in steel tank, accentuating the varietal character.
Food Pairing Notes
Baked rosemary pork chops with an apple compote, sweet and sour duck, Thai style green curry chicken (or pork), or honey, ginger and soy glazed chicken wings. Cheese: Triple cream Brie, cream cheese, cheddar, gruyere, chevre.

This 2017 is the very best I have ever tasted. Lovely peach hints. I will definitely have to buy more... before it is all gone.
