The View's Silver Lining Estate Red
My wife is the true Red wine drinker in our Family. To say the lest she was very impressed by the View Winery $ vineyard newly released red the 2014 Silver Lining Estate Red. I liked it too! It is an easy drinking wine. We first experienced the wine in our hotel room at the Georgian Court in Vancouver,( They get a plug because it truly was a 5 star hotel) before diner. After diner we experienced the sensational Cirque du Soleil Kooza. We returned to the hotel ready for MORE great wine to top off the evening.
Sensational and 5 star are two words we can easy use to describe Silver Lining Estate Red. A blend of Baco/Pinotage and Merlot. Nice and vibrant with dark cherry, raspberry and hints of spice.
The View has 48 acre vineyards located in South Kelowna and command spectacular views of Kelowna and Okanagan Lake. The northern lake exposure and sandy loam soil create our site specific wines. The unique winery tasting room is located in the heritage packing house that also doubles as a cidery. It has been that has been in the Turton/Ward family for 5 generations. Historically, apples were grown on the property. In the mid 1990's a transition began and orchard rows were replaced with vines. Ward Cider is also produced here.
Two days after the bottle was emptied Barbara said to me " I like that wine from the View we have to get more"
