The Wine

An early budbreak, followed by one of the hottest years in BC history, led to the earliest recorded grape harvest. We began picking some of our grapes in August, a full month ahead of schedule. 2015 was all about trying to slow things down. Luckily, our cool South Thompson nights helped us to retain plenty of acidity and freshness in our white wines. Meanwhile, the intense heat created some of the most concentrated and deeply coloured red wines we have ever produced.

Okanagan fruit shines through with notes of dark berries and fruit cake, as well as more savory aromas such as coffee, hazelnut and forest floor. Structured and long, this wine should drink beautifully up to 10 years from vintage.
