Introduction

Being known for more than their wines, Lake Breeze provides and escape in their Naramata, British Columbia winery and restaurant. Built in 1996 the winery is named after the winds that blow through the “Narmata Bench Wine Farm” year round. The term "wine farm" is part of the wineries South African influence from Cape Town born winemaker and president, Garron Elmes. Lake Breeze brings an influence of South African wines. Garron Elmes has been the winemaker at Lake Breeze since it's beginning and was born in Capetown, South Africa. The first vines on the property were planted in 1985, making them some of the oldest on the Naramata Bench. The current owners, the MacIntyre family, purchased the property in 2001 and have extensively invested in order to increase production from less than 3,000 cases a year to over 10,000. Serve within 2 years at 8 C.


How it looks

Soft, hay yellow with green reflections.

How it smells

Ehrenfelser falls within a group of wines that produce strong aromatics. Here, there are notes of dried peaches and apricots, offering a touch of sweetness with the concentration of fruits.

How it tastes

On the palate, medium-light bodied with a great balance of acidity. It is a complex wines with subtleties of floral notes partnered with rich stone fruits of plum, apricot, peaches and golden pear.

Recommended food pairing

The winery suggests pork based dishes, even bacon, or exotic pairings of spices and dried fruits. We think this channels Moroccan dishes.
