Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Alluring aromas of grapefruit, white peach and a hint of passion fruit on the taste, while green zestyness is on the finish too. The fruit flavours make this a very refreshing but also three dimensional wine. It's DRY! If you had our Pinot Meunier Rosé before, this white wine will give you a déjà vu moment. ENJOY!
Vineyard Notes
100% Naramata Bench Vineyard Primarily stone-free soil with distinct organic matter-rich topsoils formed in silt loam glacial lake sediments. Gravelly soils occur at high elevations and on steeper slopes. Long frost-free periods due to moderating influence of Okanagan Lake and sloping aspect.
Production Notes
100% Pinot Meunier grapes, zero skin contact.
Winemaker Notes
Many people believe that red wine is made from red grapes and white wine from green grapes. They are wrong. When grapes are pressed, the juice is white, no matter what variety of grape is used. But if the juice is left in contact with red grape skins, pigments leach out of the skins and colour the wine. If red grapes are pressed and the juice is allowed to ferment after being separated from the skins, the result is white wine, referred to as “blanc de noirs” meaning a white wine from dark grapes. We even went one step further and used only Free-run juice (not pressed juice) to maintain the white "blanc" colour. A cold & slow fermentation ~12C intensified the fruity notes.
Food Pairing Notes
Think French style Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Anything you would pair with these wines will work for our Blanc de Noir too. When it comes to food this wine is simply a chameleon, as it will match any dish. Rich pasta dishes, explore with BBQ meals, roasted veggies, seafood, roasted chicken, any flatbread, tacos,... all this pairs beautifully with the Blanc de Noir.
2023 vintage will sell out earlier due to winter frost bud damage in Dec.2022 resulting in a smaller crop.
