Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Succulent ripe white peach, lemon verbena and lime blossom are made all the more vibrant by a subtle hint of fresh spearmint and herb. While bright and refreshing, the mouth-watering fruit sits on the palate with a creamy weight and lingers on the deliciously long finish. 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 14% Sémillon
Vineyard Notes
2015 started warmer and drier than usual, without a drop of rain in January. The dry conditions continued well into April with some early irrigation in the vineyards. A cooler May reduced fruit set and provided the first signs of a lighter crop for the vintage. The harvest brought in fruit at optimal flavor maturity before a series of heat waves hit the valley. Overall, the 2015 harvest is one of the earliest on record. The sauvignon blanc and sémillon grapes for our Oakville District Fumé Blanc were picked between August 14th and August 24th.
Winemaker Notes
We hand-harvested the Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon in the cool, early morning and then gently pressed the whole clusters, minimizing skin contact, to retain freshness and vibrancy in the wine. For richness and complexity, we barrel fermented 90% of the wine in 60-gallon French oak barrels. The wine was then barrel aged on its lees (sûr lie) for nine months with hand stirring (bâtonnage) to integrate flavors and develop its creamy texture. A portion of new barrels (8%) contributes subtle oak spices to the fruit character. The wine was bottled in July, 2016.
91 Points

This shows lots of clean fruit character with white peach and light grapefruit. Some yogurt. Medium body, bright acidity and a freash and clean finish.
