Young and Wyse Collection 2010 Amber - 88pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Production: 589 cases
Date Tasted: April 12th, 2011
Tasting Notes: The first white wine to be released by Osoyoos winery Young and Wyse Collection is a blend of 47% Viognier, 38% Pinot Gris and 15% Gewurztraminer. Rich in aromatic and baked fruit aromas on the medium intense nose followed by a dry palate bursting at the seams with succulent pineapple, grapefruit and ripe peach flavours. The balance is ever-so-slightly "hot", but the richness on the palate generally masks the alcohol. Crisp citrus acidity, in turn, balances the fullness on the palate resulting in a very tasty wine with a moderate-plus finish and excellent texture. Drink 2011-2014.
