Black Hills Estate Winery 2012 Alibi - 90pts
Availability: Direct from winery here and select VQA and private wine stores
Date Tasted: October 18th, 2013
Tasting Notes: 'Effortless' comes to mind when appreciating this white Bordeaux-style blend delivering a harmonious, elegant expression of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. Subtle, aromatic notes and aromas of ripe white peach, grapefruit, orange blossom, green apple and slate come to life after a chance to breath and warm up slightly in the glass - be sure not to serve this wine too cold.
The similarly flavoured palate follows with a playful juxtaposition of a rich, creamy-textured body balanced by refreshing citrus acidity, keeping the mouth feel alive and vibrant. Handles its 14.5% alcohol like a champ, never feeling 'hot'. Drink now-2015.
