Tasting Notes: One of the things the BC wine industry does very well is create budget conscious, over-achieving, white blends that deliver all the complexity, balance and ease-of-drink that you could possibly hope to get from a wine only a cough above $15.
This blend of 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 22% Pinot Gris, 21% Viognier, 15% Chardonnay and 12% Riesling ticks all the boxes with cool citrus and mineral flavours matched by tropical fruit and light lees notes. Off-dry levels of residual sugar are kept from overwhelming your palate with ample citrus acidity and a light hint of spice. Serve chilled. Drink now-2015.
