La Frenz Winery 2011 Alexandria - 88pts

La Frenz Winery 2011 Alexandria (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $20
Alcohol: 12%
Date Tasted: March 25th, 2013

Tasting Notes: This Muscat captures the paradox of the Naramata Bench on a hot, yet windy day when the sun would cook your shoulders if not for the cool breeze coming off the cold lake: sweet, ripe tropical fruit juxtaposed with tart, citrus acidity keeping the off-dry palate refreshing and balanced. Muscat wines have the ability to most closely mimic the experience of biting into a bunch of grapes; it's exciting, sweet and fun.

Not a wine to hold in your cellar for long - best enjoyed in its youth, on a hot, sunny porch. Drink Now-2014.
