The GOODS from JoieFarm
Naramata, BC | JoieFarmThe 14th vintage of our flagship wine, A Noble Blend, is now available to order online!
Our Noble Blend is made in the spirit of Edelzwicker or Gentil, the traditional Germanic varietal blend of the Alsace region of France. The literal translation of Edelzwicker is “a noble blend” – Noble, is also proudly Heidi’s family name. The original intent in choosing to produce this proprietary blend was the knowledge that many of the oldest plantings in the Okanagan Valley are Germanic varietals which have proven to be extremely successful in this climate. Blending allows us to utilize the different characteristics of each variety (or of the same variety from different sites) in order to help us achieve natural balance as well as adding greater complexity to the wine. This wine was created out of respect for old-world traditions while learning how to make wine in our relatively young, new- world winemaking region. The 2017 ‘A Noble Blend’ is a classic blend of Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc and Muscat.
This aromatic wine exhibits an intense nose of guava, nutmeg, and clove. This spiciness continues on to the palate and opens up with unctuous flavours of lychee, corriander and guava carrying through to a grapefruit-fresh finish. Overall, the flavours and texture of this wine are focused and intense.
