Deep, rocky soils and old, gnarly vines combine to create a wine with an intense bouquet of passion fruit, papaya and lemon blossom. The palate explodes in the mouth, being round and fleshy, yet silky all at the same time.
– John Schreiner
"The nose is open with peach, apricot and honey, and showing some complexity. The style is more luxurious and rounder with flavours of butterscotch and apricot compote."
– Anthony Gismondi
"This single-vineyard selection is from what are believed to be BC's oldest Chardonnay vines, planted in the early 1970s. Almost entirely fermented with wild yeasts, it remains young, leesy and still a bit yeasty in the nose. Fresh apple, white melon and cucumber fruits are balanced and buoyed with moderate acidity. Aging 16 months in half new French oak barrels adds a toasty note. Tuck this away another year or two and it should continue to improve."
