Availability: Direct from winery here, BCLDB and VQA stores
Production: 1258 cases
Date Tasted: May 15th, 2013
Tasting Notes: A truly delicious, summer-sipper with both rich orchard fruit and tangy citrus characters on the complex and long palate. Proceeded by an equaly complex and expressive nose of apple, pear, kiwi, gooseberry and flower aromas. This blend of 53% Chardonnay, 21% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Semillon, 6% Viognier and 3% Muscat sits beautifully on your palate with generous mineral and spice notes accompaning the fruit profile. The lengthy, balanced finish speaks to its quality and care taken during the blending process to deliver a fun and enticing white wine. Drink now- 2015.
