iNwine Wednesday: Silkscarf White Pinot
Silkscarf Winery is a favourite destination for wine lovers in Summerland. The Manoff family provides a warm, personal welcome for their guests, the kind of authentic winery experience that the Okanagan is able to still offer. Here is a place where you can chat and taste directly with the owners-winemakers and the tasting room is actually an extension of their own home, so really it doesn't get any more intimate than this.
When Covid restrictions lift, make your way to Silkscarf to meet the family.
The story behind the winery's name also offers intrigue. Roie Manoff was a pilot in the Israeli air force and the name is a tribute to the scarves worn by the celebrated men in the force.
The family creates a range of handcrafted wines from their estate. But White Pinot you say? Yes! In the new world of wine, this exciting manifestation of Pinot Noir as white instead of red is becoming more and more popular in B.C. Try it now by ordering from their website here.
2019 White Pinot $24.26
"Blurring the line between white and rosé, our original White Pinot blend gained its unique peach colour from the skin maceration of the Pinot Gris, while the Pinot Noir was vinified as a white wine. This blend displays a delicate nose of peach, white blossom, strawberry and a hint of sous bois. Medium bodied with a vivid acidity, this wine offers pronounced flavours of peach, bartlett pear and pomelo."
