River Stone Estate Winery 2013 Splash (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: May 29th, 2014
Tasting Notes: This blend of Viognier, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer (percentages not provided) makes a nice addition to the patio-sipping, white blend category whose wines, generally speaking, aim to be easy-drinking, refreshing and food-friendly. Splash goes 3-for-3, offering off-dry, apple, pear and tangerine fruit balanced nicely by mineral, citrus and light spice, while a good amount of body creates the textured palate experience that enhances many Pan-Asian dishes. Perhaps, 'complexity' is not on this wine's palmarès, but 'fun' and 'drinkability' certainly are. Drink 2014-2018.
