Mainly Roussanne (96%) with 4% Viognier, sourced from Similkameen’s Blind Creek Vineyard, ripened during one of the hottest and driest summers on record. Whole bunch pressed and partially oak barrel fermented (30% new French oak) with monthly lees stirring. Vibrant gold in the glass, forward honey, herbal and tropical notes before a luscious and voluptuous but structured palate of pineapple and citrus before a lengthy close. An excellent varietal expression for drinking now or in a few years.
