The GOODS from Blue Mountain
Okanagan Falls, BC | We are pleased to announce that we are now 100% through bloom and looking forward to seeing the berries begin to form and grow. And with summer solstice behind us, it is now time to release the first of our 2013 white wines: the Pinot Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. The former displays complex flavours of stone fruit, white peach, and apricots with a touch of honeysuckle. A full mouth feel with peach flavours leads into a long finish. The latter displays complex flavours of citrus, boxwood and lemon/grapefruit, on the nose and palate. A full mouth feel with a lemon/grapefruit flavour leads into a rich long, finish. The structure of both wines will allow them to age beautifully for 3-5 years. Learn more about the winery after the jump… Read more

About Blue Mountain
Blue Mountain is a family run vineyard and winery located in the picturesque South Okanagan Valley, overlooking Vaseaux Lake. The Mavety family has farmed this fertile bench since 1971 and founded the winery in 1991, with a commitment to sustainable viticulture practices and using exclusively estate-grown grapes.
Blue Mountain strives to produce complex, age-worthy wines, consistent in style while allowing the expression of both the terroir and the individual season. The grapes that are harvested for Blue Mountain wines are sourced solely from its own vineyard. In the winery, Matt combines new technology with traditional techniques. The wines are handled minimally to ensure that the delicacy and intensity of flavours cultivated in the vineyard are expressed in the wine. French oak barrels are used in the cellar to soften and add complexity. All of these factors combine to result in a style and finesse fitting to the varietals. The 12,000-case yearly production consists of Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and a méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine, all from estate grown grapes.
