You will taste:
- Confidence: 40% Pinot Noir / 30% Merlot / 20% Pinot Meunier / 10% Pinot Gris
Wild strawberries abound in this creamy frizzante wine. Crisp, fresh field berries mingle with a hint of pink grapefruit to make this a refreshing summer sparkler. Very easy to pair with “summer cuisine”, as an aperitif or drink on its own with a bunch of great friends.
- Integrity: 73% Chardonnay / 19% Pinot Gris / 7% Gewürztraminer
Notes of apricot & pear combined with a soft citrus on the nose. The palate explodes with honey, pineapple and more soft exotic fruit. All play nicely together with tiny bubbles and a never ending finish. A very versatile wine as it always works for brunch, lunch, dinner, or drink it on its own. (Also great as a foundation for Cocktails like the Bellini or Hugo).
- Riesling: 100% Estate Vineyard/ Okanagan Falls/ Rolling Hills Road
Intense fruit aromas which definitely lean more towards exotic fruits like passion fruit, mango, and pineapple greet your nose. Ripe pear, apricot & peach with an incredible balanced acidity rounds it up to a textbook Riesling example.
Pairs well with spicy, intensely flavoured food like Thai, Curry Dishes, Blue Cheese or just a book/patio combination
