Monte Creek Ranch 2014 Hands Up White (Kamloops) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $13.49 (including taxes)
Date Tasted: August 17th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A unique, tangy blend of hybrid varieties (Frontenac Blanc and LaCresent) and Viognier that will be sure to get your mouth pumping saliva with every sip. This lightly-bronzed wine, sourced from the winery's vineyard near Kamloops, opens with a candied apple and apricot nose, followed by an off-dry palate with melon, peach and pear flavours and major, citrus and green apple acidity.
The finish is sharp and a little overwhelming when consumed on its own. Pair with hard cheeses to add some equilibrium to the palate (aka, a protective coating). Then this truly unique wine can be appreciated to its fullest. Drink now-2016.
