Region: Golden Mile Bench Okanagan Valley-VQA
Bottle size: 750 mL
Crafted from 50 year old vines, this vintage is bursting with fine floral scents along with aromas of ripe quince, green apple, pineapple and citrus. The expressive palate shows crisp apple, citrus, honeysuckle and Asian pear. A sliver of sweetness with mouthwatering fresh acidity leads to a long, crisp finish. Pair this with baked oysters and Okanagan goat cheese or fresh cod with an Okanagan apple/pear compote.
Winemaker: Robert Summers
Growing conditions: The 2017 growing season was one of marked contrasts overall, however, it was an outstanding year. The season commenced with above normal precipitation, resulting in rapid early vine growth which necessitated increased grapevine canopy management in late spring. The wet spring was followed by a classic Okanagan summer of hot, dry weather. This provided ideal growing conditions for superior vine growth and berry development and ensured the grapes reached full phenolic ripeness.
Winemaking notes: The only Trebbiano produced in the Okanagan Valley, the grapes come from the oldest vines on our estate. Planted in 1968 these vines display the pristine essence of the varietal. The fruit was hand-harvested and whole berry pressed. After settling, fermentation was in stainless steel at cool temperatures for four months to retain the vibrant stone fruit that the varietal is renowned for.
Sorry, *Old Vines Trebbiano is only available to Club members.
