2012 Riesling $21.87
This taut Riesling yields unmistakable flavours of green apple and lime.  Its zippy, citrus backbone is complemented by a clean steely finish.
“Flinty with lemon-lime citrus notes aplenty, this balanced wine hails from East Kelowna yet adheres to the Niagra Riesling formula of matching sweetness to acid while keeping the alcohol low and maintaining a light and mineraly texture. No clunky sugar and alcohol influenced palate here. Just clean, crisp fruit and terroir driven flavours; a refreshingly honest approach. Should develop unctuous nectar flavours if given time to mature, though tasting great in its youthful state today. 89+ pts.” Liam Carrier – ICON Wine

2011 Chardonnay $21.87
After full cluster pressing and low temperature fermentation, this estate wine was aged for ten months; 20% in new French oak barrels with the balance in stainless steel. Our Chardonnay shows hints of apricot and other cool climate orchard fruits. 250 cases produced.
“An appealing, fruit forward Chardonnay, this begins with citrus armonas, leading to flavours of lime, guava, melon and peach, with cloves on the lingering finish. 89 pts.” John Schreiner on Wine

2011 Pusuit $23.90
This Merlot based Bordeaux blend was aged in 100% French oak for 18 months.  Its ripe fruit flavours and soft tannins make it accessible now while maintaining the ability to age.  490 cases were produced.
