VINTAGE DESCRIPTION:

The 2006 growing season was ideal for the Okanagan Valley. A mild winter, with an early wet spring and good consistent heat combined with dryer weather throughout the summer, was finished off with warm fall weather. The resulting fruit was loaded with flavours and complexity. Harvest for the Ex Nihilo Riesling was October 18, 2006.

WINEMAKING:

Free run juice from gently pressed grapes was slowly fermented in Stainless tanks at maximum temperature of approx 15 c.

TASTING NOTES

Heady aromas of peach, apple and grapefruit tantalize the nose. The palate is loaded with flavours of passion fruit, lemon and gooseberry with mineral undertones. Crisp acidity gives the wine excellent structure with great cellar ageability
