2016 Reflection Point Pinot Noir
A reflection of Proprietor Anthony von Mandl’s vision from three decades ago, the Terroir Collection showcases
the Okanagan Valley's unique microclimates and diversity with each wine featuring a photographic image
echoing an aspect of its home.
The top 3% of our estate fruit is hand-selected for these wines by our winemaker and each individual lot is carefully
tasted throughout the winemaking process to ensure its quality level before the final blend. The first step begins
in the vineyards where we examine soil type, matching that with the clone by specific varietal, adapting to the
climate, vineyard altitude and aspect, and the intense vine devotion that is a result of our careful precision farming.
Because of this meticulous care, each offering is limited.
For us, the Terroir Collection is the heart of our passion.
On the brow of Mt. Boucherie, an inactive volcano in West Kelowna, is a steep vineyard.
This location presents a stunning view and is the inspiration for this small lot offering –
Reflection Point Pinot Noir. The name relates to the Lake’s reflection and the opportunity
to give pause to thought…be close to nature.
Image No.43 shows a grape cluster indicative of the careful and meticulous hand farming
approach we take with each of our vineyard rows. This 100% Pinot Noir is influenced by clone 115
from our West Kelowna estate vineyard that gives a solid structure to the wine, slight tannins, and
cherry, velvety fruit, and silky, polished texture. This wine is unfiltered, unfined, and wild
fermented. A very natural approach to our winemaking with this delicate and fickle grape.
