Oldfield Series 2Bench White 2014

"The 2Bench white is always rich and aromatic on the nose thanks to its creamy mix of Sémillon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Muscat. Tropical and tree fruits collide in a burst of floral blossoms with decent acidity and a modicum of dryness. Very food friendly: creamy pasta dishes, seafood, shellfish and cheeses will suit. Friendly, fun and ready to drink". - Anthony Gismondi, The Vancouver Sun, March 2016.

A beautiful, almost emerald hue, introduces you to the intriguing nature of this wine. The aromatics explode out of the glass with passion fruit, white and yellow flowers, white peach and a subtle smokiness. The palate is at first bright and zesty with passion fruit and lime, but as the wine builds it shows fresh apricot and nectarine notes, before finishing with lime freshness again.

Vineyard Notes
Hot and dry summer, typical of the Okanagan, but with a cool October allowing flavours to ripen without excessive sugar levels. Through intensive vineyard work, we have been able to increase our Semillon production and as a result it is a more serious contributor to the blend. The Viognier and Muscat were harvested last on the 23rd of October as the season came to an end, but we were able to achieve beautiful ripeness on both varieties and deliver a flavor that is outstanding.
Production Notes
This wine was made up of four separate wines that got blended together just prior to bottling. The Sauvignon Blanc portion was barrel fermented in new French Oak barrels with 100% native yeast. These barrels took over two months to ferment and the oak integration was beautiful, giving us a smoky, tropical component that gives this wine such a potent and splendid nose. The Semillon and Chardonnay were both tank fermented in stainless steel to give us a crisp refreshing balance to the mid palate. The Viognier and Muscat were left on skins in the press for a few hours and then fermented in Stainless steel barrels with native yeast only.
