Stag's Hollow Winery 2014 Albariño - 88pts

Stag's Hollow Winery 2014 Albariño (Okanagan Valley) BC

: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $TBA
Alcohol: 12.8%
Date Tasted: November 6th, 2015

Tasting Notes: As Monty Python would say, "And now for something completely different." This single-varietal release of 
Albariño, one of only two in the Province, is both familiar and unlike anything else you have ever tasted before. Though, structurally similar to blend of Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc and Hunter Valley Semillon with its bracing acidity, a strong mineral backbone, citrus fruit profile and pungent aromatics, this wine is uniquely Okanagan thanks to tell-tale wild herbs notes throughout.

A welcomed break from the norm. Release dates and prices are not yet known. Contact the winery directly to find-out how to get hold of a bottle. Drink now-2017.
