Trivino is a unique blend of aromatic whites created to celebrate the ITU Multisport World Championship races being held in Penticton this summer. Comprised of Gewürztraminer, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Muscat, and Riesling, it is a delightful taste of ‘summer in a glass’. Fragrant aromas of peach, rose petals, pear and mandarin. The palate is slightly off-dry with apricot, orange rind, spice and citrus, ensuring the right balance between acidity and sweetness. Enjoy after the race to refresh.
All varietals were cool fermented at 12°C over the course of approximately 21 days using specific yeast
selections for each grape to express each of their unique characteristics. Fermented in stainless steel for the fresh fruit flavours to shine through.
The 2016 growing season was one of the longest in the Okanagan, with spring commencing very quickly in the Valley. One of our earliest starts ever, had flowering 2 weeks ahead of normal and fruit set remaining on track. Many expected another record early harvest, however Mother Nature fortunately intervened. July and August were cooler than normal with more precipitation than usual slowing the ripening process slightly and the rain contributing to good vine growth. Mixed conditions in autumn saw a fantastic warm and sunny September with only intermittent rain, affording us good weather for harvest. October brought some additional rain and frost incidents in the south of the Valley at mid-month. We began harvest with Chardonnay for sparkling wine August 23, and brought in our last grapes November 3. It was quite an extended harvest with a 10 day break between harvesting whites and reds. On the whole, we picked some white grapes earlier than usual, but the reds stayed on average pick dates. Growing Degree Days in both Penticton and Langley totaled 1326 and 973 respectively, above their 23 year average of 1216 and 863. Overall, the season provided us flavourful fruit with balanced ripeness and nice phenolic development. An usual, but great harvest in our books!
