2016 C# [Sharp] Aromatic White

2016 C# [Sharp] Aromatic White

Single Vineyard. Estate Grown.

An unbelieveable place.

Tucked in against the jagged rock cliffs at 1400 feet elevation, all five varietals are grown in this Single Estate Vineyard. Each area of the vineyard has different growing conditions, so the five varietals were carefully planted to optimize their unique characteristics. Sparse soils, long ripening days, and heat reflected off the cliffs. There really is no place like it. Amazingly vibrant, aromatic wines.

Crisp, fresh, memorable.

Production
The 2016 harvest lasted 76 days and set records for being our longest harvest ever on record. The weather was ‘optimal’ with an early start to the season. April and May were warmer than average and bud break was three weeks early. The lack of heat waves in the summer kept sugar levels and phenolic maturity in sync so that ripening progressed slowly and predictably. The berries were firm and had perfectly healthy skins and therefore vivid, deep flavours, great acidity and excellent freshness. The harvest concluded on November 9th, marking an exceptional Okanagan vintage, and producing stunning wines for the 2016 vintage.
