Black Hills Estate Winery 2009 Alibi - 89pts
Availability: Direct from winery. Select VQA and private stores.
Date Tasted: July 3rd, 2010
Tasting Notes: A classic white Bordeaux-style blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon that offers good complexity and concentration of flavours.
The nose displays youthful fruity aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry, pineapple, grass and lemon with strong mineral notes of slate and flint. The palate offers refreshing, citrus acidity and the flavours of grapefruit and stonefruit. There is a pleasant, cool, steeliness to the wine that makes it an excellent summer sipper. The finish is very balanced and lingers for 20 seconds+. Drink now through 2012.
