The View Winery & Vineyard White Wines
Award Winning White Wines
Our gently sloped vineyard enjoys hot summer days with cool evening breezes. With our sandy loam soil and careful viticulture practices, our whites are ideally suited to express the complexity crispness, and freshness we expect from our cool climate whites.
The only one if its kind in North America, White Pinotage is a blanc de noir, a white wine made from our dark Pinotage grapes. With a beautiful rose gold hue, this savoury White Pinotage boasts notes of white stone fruits, berry and a subtle grassy herbaceousness. Lingering citrus and minerality round out an elegant, dry finish.
Our Pinot Gris shows a vibrant yellow gold in the glass and has aromas of citrus and stone fruit, with a slight nutty character from partial barrel fermentation. On the palate, the wine has a bright but balanced acidity, a luscious texture with flavours of lemon, pear, and apple.
Riesling 2017 asserts intriguing complexity with aromas of Granny Smith apples, white peach, kiwi and lime citrus. Pleasing notes of slate minerality are complimented by flavours of kiwi, pineapple and citrus. Our 2017 vintage is a Gold Medal winner in the Okanagan Life Magazine’s Best of BC Wine Awards 2018, Riesling category. Vegan Friendly.
Silver Lining White
A mouth-watering blend of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Ehrenfelser, Silver Lining Estate White opens with aromas of honeysuckle, peach, pear and melon. Flavours of baked apple pie and Asian pear give way to a zippy lemon-lime soda finish. This blend has earned medals four years running at the All Canadian Wine Championships, including a Gold for the 2016 vintage as well as Best in Class at the 2017 Alberta Beverage Awards. Our 2017 vintage earned Best White Blend at the 2018 BC Best of Varietal Awards.
Ehrenfelser has been compared to a lovely woman in a pretty sundress. Scintillating aromas of white flowers and fruit trifle are followed by succulent flavours of white nectarine, Anjour pear, and passion fruit. Notes of kiwi and zesty citrus create a well balanced, crisp finish.
Gewürztraminer has intriguing complexity with aromas of ripe tropical fruit, rose petal, orange blossom and honey. Round flavours of lychee, white peach and starfruit are beautifully balanced by a crisp citrus finish.
Well Heeled White
Well Heeled White is a fortified “Sticky” made from a blend of Riesling and Gewurztraminer grapes picked late in the harvest. Notes of fresh apricot, raisin and spice on the nose and palate make this a succulent and deliciously rich dessert wine. Well Heeled White earned a Double Gold medal at the China Wine and Spirits awards in 2016.
