Prospectus, from the Latin word ‘prospicere’ – to look forward. For us, it represents our vision to create a Pinot Noir unlike any other in the Okanagan Valley. Thin skinned and ever so delicate, this Pinot Noir required constant care and attention in the vineyard.
Our 2018 Prospectus is distinctively Pinot Noir, with a core of dark cherry fruit and earthy undertones. This wine is concentrated and complex with fine tannins and a persistent finish.
The 2018 harvest began earlier than anticipated due to above average growing degree days in the spring. Summer arrived with cooler temperatures, encouraging the fruit to develop beautiful acidity and allowing more time for full flavour retention. One of the coolest Septembers on record followed, slowing down the sugar accumulation and allowing the fruit to fully develop phenologically. Harvest concluded on November 8, with the extended season yielding a crop of uniformly ripened fruit with mouthwatering freshness and acidity
