THE PLACE
On the southern edge of the Naramata Bench, this 8 acre vineyard overlooks the city of Penticton and Okanagan Lake. The 15-year old ungrafted vines are deeply rooted in a mix of silt, sand and granite, sloping west to the brilliant light of the setting sun. 

THE WINE
Hand harvested and pressed gently, this vivid colour is the result of just 3 hours in contact with skins. 93% Zweigelt and 7% Schonberger were co-fermented in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and exuberance of aromas. 

TASTING AND FOOD PAIRING
An irresistible nose of wild strawberry, red currant and pink grapefruit leads to bold cherry and pomegranate on the palate. The fresh pro le
and dry nish call for pissaladière, salmon, spot prawns, or barbecue pork on a hot afternoon.
