Production Notes

After a challenging growing season, this Gewürztraminer was handpicked off Cellarsbend Vineyard in Naramata on October 10th at 28 brix. The grapes were then gently whole bunch pressed before being transferred into a stainless-steel vessel where the juice was kept at a cool 2 degrees Celsius to allow for a 3-day cold soak. The juice was then fermented to 24 brix, allowing for the release of the initial aromatic precursors. The wine was then fortified with a grape derived spirit that was 93% alcohol to stop the fermentation and transferred to neutral oak vessels, where it aged for 23 months prior to bottling, 6 months of which it was aged outdoors in the Okanagan summer heat to help balance the overall profile of the wine.
