2016 C# [Sharp] Aromatic White
33% Sauvignon Blanc | 22% Semillon | 15% Muscat | 15% Chardonnay | 15% Pinot Gris
August 26, 2016 - October 4, 2016 from our Jagged Rock Vineyard in Oliver, B.C.
Fremented in concrete egg, stainless steel barrels, oak barrels, and stainless steel tank.
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.
