V

A complex and intense wine built to age. The nose is like a perfectly baked cassis, blackberry and mulberry pie along with subtle bacon and sweet tobacco. The concentrated and lively palate sings with juicy raspberry, sweet brambly fruit, prune plum, black olive, dusty cocoa and lingering dried sage flavours.\ \

Love what we do everyday! From grapes to glass! 3 generations and 60+ years of family tradition cultivating the soils of the Naramata Bench. From growing tree fruits since 1954 we have converted only 30% of our land to grapes since 1999.
