Lake Breeze Vineyards 2009 Pinot Blanc - 90pts
Availability: Direct from winery. VQA stores.
Production: 2350 cases
Date Tasted: May 15th, 2010
Tasting Notes: A great example of BC Pinot Blanc at its most vibrant. Crisp, fruity and refreshing; a perfect wine for a hot patio or deck. Intense fruit aromas and flavours of grapefruit, orange blossoms, peach skins and ripe pears with tart citrus acidity and strong minerality. The soils of the Naramata Bench are well represented here giving this estate-grown wine a sense of place that lesser Pinot Blanc fail to deliver. Well-balanced with a long finish and vivacious mouth feel.
Look for this wine at your local VQA store in the Spring. Only 2350 cases were produced, so be sure to stock-up before they disappear.
Paired beautifully with the grilled-vegetable Panini I enjoyed at Lake Breeze's patio restaurant. This is a wine to be drunk now, not cellared. Enjoy 2010-2011. CSPC 500322
