Wine Club Price: $20.61

This wine is presently showing tropical aromatics and flavors of goose berry, passion fruit, grapefruit, and melon. The wine has a mouthwatering acidity balanced with a small amount of residual sugar, giving a soft supple mouth feel and minerality reminiscent of other River Stone wines. Serve slightly chilled.
These grapes came from a neighbouring vineyard located just North of Oliver on the west side of the valley. Vineyard soils are composed of sandy loam deposited during the last glaciation. The vines were in their 11th leaf when the fruit was harvested on September 12th.
The grapes were hand-picked at peak ripeness, then destemmed. The grapes were then left to cold soak for several hours and then pressed to tanks. The juice was then allowed to settle before transferring to another stainless steel tank where it was inoculated with yeast, starting the temperature controlled fermentation. The wines were racked several more times over the next few months before blending, finning, filtering and bottling.

Wonderfully fresh and juicy wine. Beautiful with scallops and prawns and butter chicken. Always a favorite and consistently fantastic every year!

Just tried the Sauvignon Blanc. Delicious. A wonderful summer choice with buttery taste and citrus edges. It is dry and complex and as tasty as it's pretty colour. A fantastic Canadian wine. Even if it was winter!

This was sold out before I got up to Oliver to visit last September. Wasn’t taking any chances on missing out on this year’s cases. Did not disappoint. Lots of taste with just the right amount of crispness. Highly recommend.

Consistently blown away by this sauv blanc. As good as ever this year, does not disappoint. So fragrant, smooth and I also get a hint of peach.

Although each year is different, the Riverstone Sauvignon Blanc is the most delicious white wine at a reasonable price in all of British Columbia. In my and my wife’s opinion.

This wine has crispness and a bright taste without being floral. It is refreshing with balanced flavours. Overall an excellent BC Sauvignon Blanc.

Excellent choice. When you can’t visit the winery this wine will bring Okanagan at home in a unique way!

A beautiful example of Sauv Blanc, with mineral and citrus notes and an elegant mouth feel. It was delicious with pan-fried fish and a Jamaican mango chutney! Thanks for another house favourite from your portfolio, guys.
