Barrel Fermented. Barrel Aged. Trust us.
100% Pinot Blanc
The 2019 Pinot Blanc is made with grapes from our Conviction Ridge estate vineyard in Kaleden. With yields of less than two tons per acre, the grapes show incredible depth of flavour and aroma. Hand-harvested early in the morning to preserve the acidity, the grapes were lightly pressed and then the juice was fermented in neutral barrels. After fermentation, the wine was aged 10 months in barrel, with batonnage (stirring of the lees) twice a month to build body and texture.
This wine has aromas of white peach, fresh-baked croissant, raw almond and lemon curd with an enticing hint of musk. Look for rich, subtle palate notes of Okanagan pear, bright citrus and lightly toasted hazelnuts that are framed by a creamy texture and a long finish.
This is a highly versatile wine on the table. The textural complexity, medium body and crisp acidity enables our Pinot Blanc to pair well with many different dishes. Try it with a warm artisan brie cheese, or with Potato-Crusted Salmon (click for recipe).
