VINEYARD NOTES
The grapes for this wine are sustainably grown on our Thomas Vineyard – Tightrope Estate on the Naramata Bench & then hand-picked.

WINEMAKER NOTES
Sauvignon Blanc 85% Sémillon 15%
The Sauvignon Blanc was destemmed, crushed, then pressed, while the Sémillon was whole-cluster pressed. Fermentation started slowly at low temperatures (12°C) to preserve the aromatics and took 28 days to complete.  Post-fermentation, the wines were blended to make this wine reminiscent of a traditional Bordeaux blend.

Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I totally love this youthful, bone-dry, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon (2022) white wine blend from Tightrope Winery. So clean and zesty with aromas of sun-kissed white florals and pure fruit flavours of yellow apple, pear, soft peach, nectarine and lemon-lime citrus with a kiss of spice, a long flinty mineral finish wrapped up in mouth-watering acidity that just seems to go forever. Juicy x 10! I see grilled lemon buttery lobster tail rolls in its future. Yum! Tasted June 2023.

DECANTER 2023 - Lifted bouquet of lemon zest, melon and lilac, while the palate is graced with bright acidity and vibrant fruit.
