PDF Tasting Notes

“Nicely aromatic with apricot and lemon custard undertones. The palate is fresh and juicy, with complex flavours of nectarine, peach, tropical fruits and honeysuckle. This wine is soft and luscious with beautifully balanced acidity and alcohol. Pairs great with seafood such as halibut or delicious on its own.”
Graham Pierce, Winemaker

“A mild winter and extended spring in 2011 provided optimal conditions for accelerated growth and an abundant crop. Having abundant primary growth allowed us to choose the most desirable clusters and reduce the crop load sooner. Early crop reduction and precise viticulture practices showed desirable ripening through the season. Hot, dry weather at the end of August and through September produced excellent flavour development and complexity.”
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
