2016 Capture Chardonnay

The natural ferment contributes a lifted, aromatic and complex nose of lychee, sandalwood and peach. The palate opens with apple blossom, mandarin, honeycomb, spice and creamy stone fruits yet remains delicate with a long finish of sea salt and graphite.

Border Vista Vineyard

This single parcel, planted in 1997 to Dijon clonal material, is a mere ten metres from the BC-Washington border on the east side of Osoyoos Lake.

The vineyard, with Anarchist Mountain towering above it to the east, has​ a​ slight undulation​s​ characteristic​s​ of what was once the floor of a large glacial lake.

This elegant wine begins with aromas of peach and citrus. The palate echoes those fruits, along with spice notes.

94 Points, John Schreiner

Capture is all about texture and weight but with a light hand. The butter, apples and pears give way to spice, honey and tangerine before a lightly saline mineral finish.

92 Points, Anthony Gismondi
