WineDiva's Review

Perfumed, buoyant, stylish.
Grown on an ancient beach, a gravel plot sloping toward Okanagan Lake, it was aged 12 months in a series of new and second and third use barrels. 73 cases made (which is one-third of last vintages production).
A pretty wine, it is perfumed with violets and star anise, raspberry tea and cherries, baking spices and a core of forest floor. Silky and so wonderfully fresh it lights up on your palate. Buoyant and feminine, it is also persistently delicious.

Recommended Pairings
Good First Impressions, Cellar Keepers, White Meat Chicken/Pork, First Date, French Food
