Select barrels were chosen from across our Estate vineyards to create a distinct and full-bodied red wine. Our 2017 Petite Cuvée is a true expression of the South Okanagan's unique terroir, showcasing a vibrant core of ripe fruit with plum and desert sage This wine is bright and juicy with red fruits and complexity in oak spices and aromatics. Fine-grain tannins carry through an impressively long and fresh finish - a tribute to the art of the blend.

Winemaker Notes
2017 growing season got off to a slow start with bud break occurring nearly two weeks later than average. But this was followed by a hot and dry summer that really allowed the grapes to fully ripen. This was also a year of reduced yields however, it resulted in small, concentrated berries that produced wines of pronounced depth and intensity.
Vineyard Notes
The Estate Petite Cuvée comes from two of our Estate vineyards: Becker vineyard on the Black Sage bench and Kobau vineyard on the Golden Mile bench. Becker Vineyard produces finessed, elegant wines from the upper terrace of the Black Sage bench while the southerly aspect of the Kobau vineyard allow the vines to bask in the early morning sun. On gravelly soils, wines from this vineyard are known for being mineral-driven, well structured, with a balanced ripeness and fresh acidity.
