Unsanctioned Series Sauvignon Blanc
Unaltered. Uncompromised. Unsanctioned. Trust us.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
The aptly-named Slow Vineyard on the Naramata bench likes to take it’s time. With predominantly clay soils, the grapes get extended hang time that allows the flavours and aromas to fully develop. This was the last varietal we picked in all of the 2019 vintage…after all of our reds! The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and vibrancy of the wine. Only 90 cases produced.
This is an incredibly expressive wine. Absolutely bursting in the glass with aromas of grapefruit, lime, white peach and hints of flint. On the palate the vibrant Okanagan fruit notes shine through, with only a subtle hint of herbaceousness. The fruit is supported by a beautiful nervousness and tension on the finish. Crisp and dry on the palate, this wine has a roundness to the texture that softens the acidity you’d expect in a Sauvignon Blanc.
When in doubt, go green. Sauvignon Blanc makes a wonderful choice with herb-driven sauces over chicken, tofu, or fish dishes. Match with feta or chèvre, or pair with herb-driven Asian flavors such as Thai or Vietnamese cuisine.
