2019 Jagged Rock Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon

2019 Jagged Rock Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon

Jagged Rock Vineyard, surrounded by steep rocky cliffs at 1,400 feet elevation, is a remarkable spot. The sparse, sun scorched soils and heat reflecting off the cliffs provides an ideal viticultural environment. Each area of the vineyard has its own unique growing condition, allowing the winemakers to choose specific blocks to get the most out of the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon used to create this refreshing wine.

Production
The 2019 growing season began with near perfect seasonal conditions followed by a fall and winter of old extremes. The spring conditions carried through to the summer, with the consistently warm weather encouraging healthy vine growth, even flowering and an even fruit set. The ripening (veraison) period and harvest was not without challenge with unseasonal rainfall throughout the month of September and then a very cool to cold October. These challenges were navigated expertly by our viticultural and winemaking teams and, as a result, we were able to see fruit reach ideal ripeness. Crops were lower than average, allowing for flavor development and natural acid retention with balanced sugar accumulation in the berries. Our 2019 harvest concluded on October 29, marking a short, but beautiful vintage in the Okanagan, producing wines expressive of the region and the season.
