All of our fresh 2011 whites have now been released; Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Character White and our signature, Trebbiano round out the portfolio. Pinot Blanc is fruity with green apple and peach while Pinot Gris is lightly floral with pear and limestone; both have great citrus notes and are dry crisp offerings. Our Character White Estate blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Trebbiano is in its 2nd vintage and has fabulous tropical and orchard fruit flavours. Being an Estate blend, this wine really conveys the true "Character" of our land and our people.
The latest release is the Trebbiano, a precious part of our heritage. This year the slightly off-dry Trebbiano displays generous fruit flavours with minerality, apples and passion fruit. All four wines are available in the wine shop or online. Stop in soon to enjoy your favourite summer sipper on our patio.
To continue with successful wines, our firstcompetition results of the season are in. The All Canadian Wine Awards commenced the week of May 18th and we received a Gold medal for our 2010 Selected Barrels Cabernet Merlotand a Gold medal for our 2010 Late Harvest Pinot Blanc. Congratulations to winemaker Rob Summers, assistant winemaker Marie Hebrard and the whole team.
