Pale lemon with flecks of green. The nose is intensely aromatic – bright citrus, fresh pineapple, crisp apple, and hints of wild thyme and spring blossoms. The palate is light and dry with a fresh lime finish.

A pretty pale orange to golden hue in the glass with a fine and persistent bead. The nose presents variations on green apples – apple cider, baked apple pie – as well as deeper notes of orange marmalade and fresh baked bread. On the palate, the wine is lean and refreshing, showing hints of under-ripe strawberry and just barely there natural fruit sweetness. The long finish leads with the crisp acidity of pink grapefruit, a nod to the wine’s unique Fraser Valley terroir.

A warm, ruby hue of medium intensity greets the eye. Bright notes of violets burst from the glass giving way to aromas of black cherry, clove, and cedar. The palate is fresh, pure, and structured with a concentrated, juicy finish. A wine of both power and restraint.

Fresh, crisp and incredibly vibrant notes hit the nose. Just-ripe granny smith apple on the palate combined with stone fruits, pink grapefruit and lime zest. The finish lingers on the palate and contains just enough acidity to clean the palate for the next sip.

Bright ruby with shades of purple. Juicy red berries, black cherries, and a hint of South Okanagan sage. A medium, juicy palate with great length from bright acidity.

Pale salmon. Ripe strawberry, watermelon, lemon rind, and mint. Though light and refreshing, the palate shows a bit of weight from the naturally ripe fruit.
