RIGOUR & WHIMSY
2016 PINOT BLANC
This wine is made from grapes grown just North of Oliver in the Okanagan Valley. This organic vineyard is planted at high elevations which exacerbates the diurnal temperature swing resulting in fresher grapes. The dry climate eliminates the need for harmful sprays. The grapes were harvested by hand and fermented as whole-clusters for two months, extracting a lot of flavour from the skins but not oxidizing. The wine was then pressed off into neutral barrel for an additional 18 months before being bottled with minimal sulphur.
