Reviews by Anthony Gismondi

2017 Rosé
Their location in Lake Country puts them just off the major traffic map but they are making a compelling case for northern Okanagan fruit. Case in point, this perfectly fresh, light pink rosé that blends 85/25 pinot noir / zweigelt grown in West Kelowna and Lake Country. The harvest of these grapes are specific to rosé: earlier and at higher acidity. The style is juicy, clean and floral with rich red fruit and mineral notes; think strawberries, grapefruit and cranberries. Despite some healthy acidity it finishes just off-dry with 8.5 grams of residual sugar. A warm patio is the best match all summer. Super value.

2016 Zweigelt
Wow, I would say Arrowleaf has tamed the beast that can be zweigelt. Expect a bright, super juicy red wine that jumps off the palate with a bit of pepper and a whole lot of fresh, red cherry raspberry flavours. Clean and persistent this is an impressive bottle of bright, savoury, red wine red. Excellent grape growing and winemaking.

 

Review by Treve Ring

2017 Bacchus
I really like Arrowleaf's new labels: fresh, modern, natural, herbal. This is a sweeter aromatic white, with candied pink grapefruit, orange blossom and elderflower coating a shorter, somewhat citric tablet. Best well chilled and enjoyed on the patio.
