Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Ripe melon and windfall yellow apples fill the bouquet on the nose. On the palate this wine is dry with medium body supported by soft acidity and notes of cantaloupe, lilies and yellow apple.
Vineyard Notes
Zanatta was the first vineyard planted on Vancouver Island. The Auxerrois used for this wine was planted in the early 1990's and has become one of our favorite small production wines. The soils of Zanatta are a free draining sorted glacial till, meaning they don't hold water so the roots go deep, combine this with a terrific South facing gentle slope and it makes for very interesting wine.
