Cost: $17 (Direct from winery) $21 (Private wine stores)
Date Tasted: September 4th, 2009
Tasting Notes: Another winner from Naramata Bench producer Lake Breeze Vineyards. Light intensity yet intriguing on the nose; notes of grapefruit, pears and butter. The soft nose lures you into taking a sip where your palate explodes with intense flavours and you fall victim to the likes of fresh peaches, canned-pears and citrus fruits. This is a well balanced wine with medium acidity and a very long finish that leaves your mouth happy and refreshed.
Sadly, the winery is now sold out of their 2000 cases of this wine. However, I have seen it at BC VQA stores recently, sold in the fantastic half-bottle size (375ml). I wish more wineries would produce the half-bottle size (appropriately priced). - LC
