"Richly coloured, this unfiltered and unfined wine showcases the purest expression of southern Okanagan ‘bench’ fruit. Bright citrus fruit, buttered croissant, lanolin, and zesty minerality on the nose and palate."

96 points, Matt Steeves, Quercus Vino

"This Chardonnay draws fruit from five vineyards – two on Black Sage Bench, one on Osoyoos East Bench and two on the Golden Mile Bench. Eighty per cent was aged in Burgundy barriques and 20% in concrete. The wine begins with aromas of citrus fruits, caramel and coconut. The texture is full. The flavours are complex, with herbal and citrus notes and hints of wet stone and sea salt on the finish."

95 points, John Schreiner
