ASPECT BLOCK 3 RIESLING 2020
Block 3 is an aged planting dating back to 1991. This wine was kept on the skins for 12 hours and aged half in stainless, and half in German oak. Ripe and deeply aromatic riesling this wine is definitely characterized by its intensity. Bright lime dominates with floral and candied citrus to follow. The palate has a bit of grip and a perfectly balanced sugar-to-acidity ratio.
ASPECT BLOCK 3 RIESLING 2019
Block 5 is at the top of the Kelowna-based Home Block Vineyard. This Chardonnay is built on a ripe foundation with bright and clean acids as well as a creamy texture. Notes of apricot, starfruit, and mango, with a persistent flint hint and moderate oak presence. The palate is light and pure with moderate volume and fresh acidity.
ASPECT BLOCK 2 PINOT NOIR 2018
The fruit is clone 115, fermented in concrete tanks, aged 14 months in French oak (18% new). This is a seductive wine, beginning with floral and strawberry aromas. On the palate, there’s a silky touch with fruit-forward flavors and a savory finish. A classic Pinot Noir layered with elegance.
ASPECT BLOCK 4 PINOT NOIR 2018
This wine is a tribute to the unique blend of clones planted on clay, silt, and stone. Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in French oak for a year to allow the different expressions of Pinot Noir from three different clones (115, 667, and 777) to marry into this intricate wine. The style is very savory with forest floor, dark, rich black fruits, game and mushroom flavor. The palate brings texture and soft spices. Overall a bold and voluminous Pinot Noir.
