Pale straw in color with brilliant clarity. Inviting aromas of fresh pear, cantaloupe, honey, marzipan, and tangerine. Fresh acidity on the palate balanced with a touch of sweetness, and a lengthy finish.
Vineyard sites from different VQA sub-appellations were selected and harvested at different stages to help bring different flavour profiles to the final wine. The grapes were cold-soaked on the skins for a short period before pressing and cold settling. Clarified juice was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel for an average of four weeks, and kept on light lees post-fermentation to help build richness and improve balance in the final wine. Blended, filtered and bottled in early 2011.
