Quick Overview

Hidden Terrace Vineyard

Sauvignon Blanc 2016

FLAVOUR PROFILE
Clear and bright with a fresh, tropical aroma of ripe peach, guava, passion-fruit, yellow plum, lemon grass and pink grapefruit.
This light to medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc has a clean mouth-feel and flavours of pink grapefruit, white peach and gooseberry.
Refreshing flavours, similar to the palate, plus an added note of lemon grass, linger on the finish.
A fabulous spring and summer sipper. Or pair with pan-fried fish filets with fresh herbs; herbed pasta salad; asparagus salads; cool refreshing gazpacho; basil pesto on pasta or chicken; halibut with a corn, cucumber and tomato relish; goat cheese appetizers; spinach quiche; spring pea risotto.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The spring began with a blast of heat and a quick start to the season. Summer and fall cooled slightly allowing a slow, long ripening season, ideal for red varietals, and for expressive aromatic whites. The valley saw slightly wetter than normal conditions; however, the vineyards remained healthy. The southern Okanagan Valley experienced 1635 GDD (Growing Degree Days), representing higher than average heat units.

WINEMAKER NOTES
“Located against the south face of Macintyre Bluff and rising 330 feet above the Okanagan River, Hidden Terrace Vineyard’s unique microclimate, slightly cooler growing conditions and sandy soil produce some of our most delicate fruit. This fourth vintage from Hidden Terrace Vineyard expresses the pure clean fresh fruit notes of classic Sauvignon Blanc.”
Wine Making The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand-picked from Hidden Terrace Vineyard in the cool of the early morning hours. Within moments of arriving at the winery, the fruit was whole cluster pressed. Special selected yeast was used to enhance varietal characteristics. 100% stainless steel fermentation and aging.
