A lovely, floral, aromatic BC white wine made from the Trebbiano grape, traditionally from Italy. This grape has been planted in the winery's vineyards since 1968, and today it is still the only estate in the Okanagan Valley to make the wine. Medium-bodied with balanced acidity for seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Wow! What a great Expression of Trebbiano. Okanagan's one and only and block 16 at Hester Creek was planted in 1968. This old vines block is producing a mature full bodied expression. 2014 is well balanced, well integrated and full of complex flavours. Oily voluptuous texture. Canned mandarin oranges, blood orange, orange blossom, dragon fruit, hint of vanilla bean. Pair this beauty with roasted poultry, pan fried jumbo scallops. Easily drinking on its own. Tasted 2014 vintage in May 2017. 92 points. Bespoke Tastings
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intense aromatics and a flavourful palate. Prominent notes include citrus blossom, baked apple, and apricot puree. Mouthfeel is plump, rich, and buttery with a long finish. Enjoy this medium-bodied Okanagan Trebbiano with herb-roasted chicken. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | Bespoketastings.ca
