Availability: Direct from winery and VQA stores.
Cost: $17.90
Alcohol: 13.3%
Production: 598 cases
Date Tasted: June 26th, 2010

Tasting Notes: A refreshing white blend of Pinot Gris (22%), Pinot Blanc (25%), Viognier (12%), Müller Thurgau (9%), Kerner (16%) and Schönburger (16%), all stainless-steel fermented to near dryness leaving a touch of residual sugar. The sugar and concentrated flavours of tropical fruit, melons, and peaches is nicely balanced by the natural acidity and presence of good mineral notes.

This is an excellent, aromatic and juicy summer sipper. This wine is a must for your next sunny patio-party. Pairs beautifully with salad (perhaps a Fennel slaw with grilled prawns and mangoes). Drink young, 2010-2012.
