This wine starts with a young block planted to the I-Block clone from our Oakville estate, which offers vibrant stone fruit, a hint
of minty herbs, and floral notes. It is blended with fruit from our other estate blocks, adding tropical fruit character and citrus notes. A small amount of Sémillon is added to complement the Sauvignon Blanc’s vibrant fruit and acidity, adding notes
of fresh apple and a creamy texture.

Overall, the 2022 vintage was a mild, dry, and very pleasant growing season through August. Temperatures then surged for a week in August. Our grape-growing and winemaking teams worked non-stop to keep the vine healthy and happy until temperatures cooled to a level more reasonable for early fall and we could resume picking. In spite of a few hot bumps in the road, this year’s wines are shaping up to be gorgeous indeed. The fruit for this Fumé Blanc was harvested by hand between August 16 and September 1. 

Sourced primarily from Sauvignon Blanc blocks in our Oakville Vineyard.
