Latin for incomparable, unprecedented, or ‘only’, Unicus represents the Okanagan Valley’s first Grüner Veltliner. Harvested from Margaret’s Bench - one of the highest vineyards in the Okanagan - Unicus displays lifted mineral, herbs, citrus, and stone fruit aromas, combined with distinctive white pepper and grapefruit flavours, creating a wine of outstanding originality, interest, elegance, and style.

 

APPELLATION
Okanagan Valley

VINEYARD SOURCE
100% estate grown Grüner Veltliner from Margaret's Bench

WINEMAKING
Fermented in a combination of concrete egg (35%), concrete amphora (26%), stainless steel (22%), and neutral French oak (17%).

TASTING NOTE
Delicate floral notes of acacia, slivered almond, and leavening bread accompany classical ‘Unicus’ notes of chalk and citrus, with this vintage centring around white grapefruit pith and lemon-lime aromas. Focused and vibrant, Granny Smith apple and citrus flavours carry and support Unicus’ mid-palate weight right through to the subtly-mineral finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Grapefruit zest stringozzi with pecorino and fresh ground white pepper; poached wild Coho salmon with lemon balm hollandaise drizzle.
