With our Orange Vidal, our aim is to make an orange wine that is adventurous and quirky (as orange wines often are), while also enjoyable and still approachable for people who may not be familiar with the style.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A bright amber colour, with an expressive and evolving nose. On first look, the nose is all floral: jasmine, orange blossom and slight bergamot note. But as it’s swirled, layers of complex flavours are revealed, which seem to multiply with decanting. The citrus, tropical and stone-fruit (think apricot preserves & ripe peach) notes you expect from Vidal, mingle with exotic notes of candied ginger, orange marmalade and rosemary-infused honey. The palate is bone-dry with laser-like acidity and volume created by a touch of tannins on the palate.
Vineyard Notes
Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard, Okanagan Falls (gravels & coarse glacial till)
Production Notes
Fruit was sourced from our Vidal vines and Orange Muscat vines at our Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard. Hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness, the Vidal was hand-sorted, destemmed and fermented on skins in 3 stainless steel fermenters. After 3 weeks of skin contact fermentation with both indigenous and cultivated yeasts, the must was drained and gently basket-pressed into a stainless steel tank. The Orange Muscat was treated identically through fermentation but was pressed into one neutral Acacia barrel for ageing. The portion in barrel went through full malolactic conversion, while the stainless steel portion did not, in an attempt to hold onto the majority of the wine’s abundant natural malic acidity. Shortly thereafter, the pieces were blended together, filtered and bottled.
