The 2021 growing season is one that will be remembered for a long time. The season was marked by intense heat in the Okanagan. The resulting budbreak gave us berries
that grew to a small size and the clusters were loose. These small berries had a high concentration of flavour, colour, and tannins. The vintage started slow but by mid summer the vines were progressing well. The crop was light in general which allowed the quality to really shine.

wine profile

This vintage of Chardonnay offers aromas of ripe pineapple, lemon meringue, burnt sugar and ripe Williams pear. The palate is bright and juicy with mouth-watering acidity. The mid-palate adds notes of warm brioche with lemon zest. The wine is light on its feet and balances the fruit and oak with a long mineral finish.

Winemaking notes

This year’s Chardonnay grapes were sourced from some of the South Okanagan’s best sites, ranging from Okanagan Falls to Osoyoos. The grapes were fermented 78% in barrel and 22% in concrete egg with 20% being new French oak. The wine was aged 9 month sur lie and stirred, with a partial malolactic conversion allowed to occur.
