Young and Wyse Collection 2011 Amber - 87pts

Young and Wyse Collection 2011 Amber (Osoyoos) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $19.90
Alcohol: 11.5%
Production: 1175 cases
Date Tasted: June th, 2012

Tasting Notes: A lively and cheerful blend of 43% Viognier, 37% Pinot Gris and 20% Gewurztraminer with apple crumble, papaya and sweet citrus aromas on the pleasant nose. The crisp palate follows with intense green apple acidity, lemon/lime flavours and cool minerality. A long finish with lingering tartness, light spice and a hint of edible flowers. Not as rich and textured as the 2010 version: an altogether different animal with the 2011 release serving as a tart, refreshing, low-alcohol summer sipper. Pair with seafood dishes or enjoy this tasty wine on its own on a sunny deck. Drink 2012-2014.
