Schreiner reviews 2014 vintages

Okanagan Falls wineries come to town in 2016

John Schreiner | April 11th, 2016 |

91 Points – Meyer McLean Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

“The wine has aromas and flavours of cherry and raspberry with spice and even a hint of licorice on a full and silky palate.”

91 Points – Meyer Tribute Series Chardonnay 2014

“The fruit is from the mature vines on Meyer’s Naramata Road vineyard. All of the Tribute wines are dedicated to someone; this vintage is dedicated to Art and Viv Meyer, proprietor JAK Meyer’s parents. They are being honored with a superb wine: aromas and flavours of grapefruit, apple and tangerine. Bright acidity and good minerality add focus to this complex, age-worthy wine.”

 90 Points – Meyer McLean Creek Chardonnay 2014

“This is an intense Chardonnay with a crisp finish. It begins with citrus aromas. On the palate, there is a medley of tangerine and stone fruit flavours around a good spine of minerality.”

90 Points – Meyer Rosé 2014

“This may be sold out since the winery’s website is set up to pre-order the 2015. On the strength of the 2014 vintage, the 2015 would be a good bet. The 2014 has a good dark salmon hue, with intense aromas and flavours of cherry and strawberry. The finish is zesty and dry”

90 Points – Meyer Reimer Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

“The terroir of the Reimer Vineyard in East Kelowna is quite different from McLean Creek. This wine has a slightly lighter hue but, as is often the case with Pinot Noir, surprises with a fleshy and silky texture. There are aromas of cherry and strawberry, echoed on the palate with notes of strawberry and spice.”
