  • Tasting notes

    Pale lemon in colour, our Pinot Gris boasts aromas of stone fruit, white peaches, and soft jasmine. Pineapple and lemon zest excite the palate offering balanced acidity and enticing minerality. Apricot and nectarine linger on the finish. Truly the best representation of the Okanagan in your wine glass.

  • Viticultural notes

    2014 was a stellar year for grape growth in the Okanagan Valley. Due to the warm Winter and early Spring temperature, we welcomed a very early budburst that was recorded three weeks ahead of the normal average. In May, we saw rapid growth in the vineyards that did not let up until early August. This ample growing season gave the vineyard crews plenty of time to keep the vines trimmed and thinned to let enough sun and air reach the ripening clusters. Within a three week time frame, all of the estate vines showed great fruit-set and veraison. This short veraison window ensured even ripening of the fruit-set which resulted in the fruit reaching perfect balance in sugar, acid and phenolic composition leading to spectacular flavours. Once fruit selection finished and the vineyard nets were put up, the Poplar Grove crew waited three weeks before ramping up for harvest. In summary, 2014 was warm, lengthy and balanced with a mighty fine finish at the end.

  • Winemaking notes

    Our Pinot Gris is made from 100% estate grown fruit, 94% from our Naramata Bench location and 6% from our Osoyoos vineyard. The fruit was pressed after three hours of skin contact to extract additional aromatics and fermented cold to preserve the signature fruit flavours. The various parcels of juice were inoculated with four different yeast cultures in order to allow complexity and mouth-feel to develop without over manipulation. The final Pinot Gris blend was created to bring the most balanced profile of acidity, aromatics, and natural sweetness on the palate.
