Lacking direct sunlight, this 0.5-hectare north-facing vineyard of Pinot Gris makes this the coolest, latest ripening site on the eastern shores of Okanagan Lake. Waiting for the right balance of freshness and concentration of flavours means these are our last-picked Pinot Gris grapes. In the winery, our winemaker uses certified organic yeasts and a selection of stainless steel, concrete and oak to highlight this northern Okanagan vineyard.

Average Okanagan spring temperatures began the 2020 growing season with periods unusually cold and wet weather. Colder periods progressed into the early spring contributing to a marginal fruit set, but as the season progressed into the summer months we regained our highly celebrated Okanagan conditions. The dry, warm and hot summer produced good growth permitting all varieties to ripen with excellent balance and incredible flavor intensity.
