Tasting Notes: A fun, light brass colour greets you with this amazing Pinot Blanc from JoieFarm, an indication that you are in for something different, something memorable. The nose is gorgeous, feminine and round with rich orchard fruit and canned peach aromas. The texture is lush and creamy and sits in your mouth like a delicious tropical fruit tart dessert. The finish is very long, balanced and concentrated with lingering spicy apple sauce flavours. Absolutely the hallmark of an exceptional wine.
This Pinot Blanc is rich and sourced from mature vineyards in Kelowna and from the Naramata Bench, thus, the potential is there to develop further over the next few years, but why wait as it is tasting beautifully now. Drink 2012-2016.
