Blackwood Lane 2008 Vicuña Blanca - 87.5pts
Availability: Direct from winery. Private wine shops in BC
Date Tasted: January 31st, 2010
Tasting Notes: Top Fraser Valley producer Blackwood Lane focuses most of its energy on their exquisite "Sommelier Series" wines but also offer two excellent house blends: Vicuña Roja and Vicuña Blanca.
The Vicuña Blaca is a tasty blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chenin Blanc and Gewurztraminer which offer aromas and flavours of grapefruit, apricot and blossoms with good minerality. Crisp, refreshing acidity on the palate with a long, liguring finish makes this a great wine for a sunny, summer afternoon or to pair with spicy food. Ready to drink now.
