2009 Sauvignon Blanc
We source the fruit for this wine from the steep north facing slopes of our Lumeno property by Osoyoos Lake and the south west facing slopes near Dead Mans Lake in Oliver. Stringent canopy management and timely leaf removal has resulted in a spectrum of varietal characteristics from tropical fruit flavours to classic gooseberry and grass. The cool nights of the Okanagan provide great natural acidity and structure while keeping the fruit profile zesty and vibrant. Borrowing a little old world flair from Didier Dagueneau we used partial oak ferment and aging for added complexity and texture.
Recommended Food Pairing:
Grilled oysters in the half shell topped with lemon and garlic or Frisee salad dressed with lardon and a soft boiled egg will compliment the bright flavours within this wine.
