TEXTURE PINOT GRIS “INOX” 2018

Kozier Organic Vineyard, Naramata Bench

Bright and crisp aromatics suggest lime zest and freshly cut gala apple. The palate is pure and persistent with fresh acidity and an underlying minerality. Wild BC salmon, grilled vegetables, or a selection of local artisanal cheeses come to mind, but this is a versatile wine with or without food.

TEXTURE ROSÉ 2018

Domaine Roche, Naramata Bench

Pale salmon pink in color, this wine is succulent and elegant with sanguinelli orange, rose petal, and acacia floral notes. The fresh profile and dry finish call for salmon, spot prawns, or barbecue pork. Also easily enjoyed on its own.

TEXTURE GEWÜRZTRAMINER 2018

Kozier Organic Vineyard, Naramata Bench

Our small lot Gewürztraminer is new to the Roche Wines portfolio. It displays succulent tones of lychee and Ripe nectarine with hints of Asian pear and white blossom. Beautifully balanced, this wine would be a perfect Pairing to a Linguine Vongole, Munster tarte, or even a ripe Camembert. This versatile wine would be the perfect pairing for most dishes and occasions.

TEXTURE PINOT NOIR 2016

Kozier Organic Vineyard, Naramata Bench

The nose reveals some juicy strawberry and cherry aromas with savoury spicy notes. On the palate, sweet but restrained fruit leads to moderate tannins and a long finish. This wine will accompany roasted chicken and grilled pork tenderloin with root vegetables, though the wine has the finesse to complement halibut or salmon.

Your first opportunity to sample the entire lineup is at ‘Meet the Makers’ on April 15th - see you there - RSVP NOW!
