TASTING NOTES

Fresh tropical fruit salad, guava, and passionfruit on the nose with light notes of pastry and a hint of ripe pineapple. This tropical aromatics are followed by fresh guava, pineapple, and passionfruit on the palate. This medium-bodied white wine is loaded with juicy tropical fruit on the mid-palate, balanced acidity, and light flavours of creamy honey appear on the finish.

PERFECT PAIRINGS // Pork loin roast with roasted vegetables. Roast chicken with a tarragon cream sauce. Corn chowder. Moroccan tagine.

FIELD REPORT

The 2018 growing season got off to a great start but in mid-July smoke from fires in the Pacific Northwest blocked much of the sunlight which slowed down ripening dramatically. This resulted in wines with lower alcohol levels, ripe fruit flavours and balanced acidity.
