The Pink One

2018

A bold, flavoursome style with lovely savouriness. Gorgeous rose-gold hue. Cracked wheat. Faint berry accents. Very classy. Higher dosage - finishes with sweet fruit.

Mid-depth salmon hue, fine bead. Intense bouquet of grilled toast and strawberry jam. Fresh and intense with excellent depth of toasty autolytic character, well-integrated mousse and finely judged dosage. Excellent length.

This is superb rose sparkling wine. It can be enjoyed on its own however it also has all the qualities of an excellent food wine. It has refreshing acidity, red fruit & pastry notes, finessed mousse, tangerine zest, and umami. It is beautifully balanced. It begs for a salmon wellington or mushroom bruschetta with toasted pine nuts. Drinking beautifully now or can hold 5-8 years.

Marzipan, sourdough, strawberry, grilled nut aromas. Sweet strawberry yeasty flavours, chalky lacy textures and fresh indelible acidity. Touch sweet at the finish.

This is a traditional method brut made with Pinot Noir. The wine, which was en tirage for 29 months, begins with a lovely pink hue. The aroma has notes of brioche mingled with strawberry. On the crisp, dry palate, there are flavours of strawberry and raspberry.

The Pink One is all Okanagan Falls and all pinot noir grown on the home site. Its secret to success is a mix of several clones (114, 115, and 777), planted in 2001 and 2008. It gets a brief four hours of skin contact to perfect its light copper colour before a cold fermentation and a long 29-month sleep on its lees. Like, The One, it has an intriguing complexity woven through its strawberry and freshly baked biscuit nose. The palate flashes red currants and citrus with a perfectly leesy/yeasty undercurrent. It struck gold at the National Wine Awards of Canada this year, never an easy task when tasted among the country’s best. Dry and ready to drink, you can take this to the dinner table.

Attractive sparkling wine with red berries and fruit and some yeasty character on the nose and palate. Light orange pink, with bottle and lees aging showing. Fine bubbles with a long red current and lemon peel finish.

2017

Clean. Refreshing. Chalky flavours up front provide a mineral profile, with the mid palate offering up fresh underripe strawberries, pink grapefruit pith and lime zest. It has a lovely mid palate weight with juicy citrus acidity, while earth and strawberry fruit continue through the back palate. This wine is elegant with a creamy uplifting mousse and displays refinement with tiny fine pin-point bubbles that persist right through the finish. This wine is harmoniously balanced and finishes dry.

A beautiful pink sparkling wine from Pinot Noir. Intense savoury bouquet of hazelnuts and toast. The fresh acidity and summer fruits complete this layered wine
