2020 Platinum Border Vista Sauvignon Blanc
“This Sauvignon Blanc comes from a tiny west-facing slope in our Border Vista Vineyard, which shares a fence with Washington State. The hot afternoon sun and dry soils of pure sand produce small bunches with intense concentration and depth. Over the years, I’ve evolved my winemaking style to use French oak and Acacia to make a bigger, richer Sauvignon Blanc that truly reflects the vineyard.”
– Taylor Whelan, Winemaker
The 2020 growing season kicked off with periods of unusually cold and wet weather, which carried over into the early spring and contributed to a marginal fruit set. The cool spring progressed to a beautiful Okanagan summer, with consistently warm weather without any severe heat spikes. Perfect fall conditions followed, with warm days, minimal precipitation, and cool nights, producing beautifully balanced wines with intense fruit character.
