White Wines of Chatter Creek - Past and Present

White Wines
Tinhorn Creek Oliver, BC, Canada
      Chardonnay 2003

Kettle Valley Naramata, BC, Canada
      Pinot Gris 2001
      Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc 2001
            This wine comes from hand picked sauvignon blanc and
            semillion of October 2002. Well balanced and crisp with a fresh
            fruit flavour.
      Chardonnay Reserved 2001
            “A must try. The grapes were crushed and left on the skins to
            cold soak for 3 days prior to being pressed off. This wine is not
            oaky and is a must try if you like a good chardonnay.”

Chateau St Jean Sonoma, CA, USA
      Fumé Blanc 2001
            “Expect pleasant mineral, grapefruit rind, melon and fresh hay
            aromas. Round and fresh with delicate flavours of melon, butter,
            grapefruit with a chalky mineral aftertaste.
            Tasty grapefruit/orange finish with firm acidity and fine
            balance. Enjoyable, graceful wine”.

Trimbach Alsace, France
       Pinot Gris Reserve 2000
            This Pinot Gris Reserve has a perfect balance of fruit, acidity,
            and spice. It is a full-bodied wine made in a very ripe and
            harmonious style. Slightly tropical, ripe pear, peaches, hints
            of almond. Extremely versatile at the dinner table, serve with an
            array of seafood, poultry and/or white meat dishes”.
