Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $17.49-$18.99
Alcohol: 13%
Production: 639 cases
Date Tasted: August 1st, 2011

Tasting Notes: This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc done in a weighty (almost chewy), Californian Fumé Blanc style, bursting with tropical and citrus fruit aromas on the nose. The dry, rich palate follows with intense pineapple, passion fruit, lemon-lime, melon and white pepper flavours.

Produced from fruit sourced from southern Okanagan Valley vineyards near Oliver and Osoyoos which benefited from the hot, late summer of the 2009 vintage, yet retained enough acid to create a refreshing, long finish with lingering mineral notes and spice. Has the weight and texture to hold another 2, even 3 more years, but I'm not sure why you'd want that lush fruit to sit around waiting to be opened. Drink 2011-2013.
