JoieFarm 2015 A Noble Blend - 91pts
Availability: Direct from winery here, BCLDB stores and VQA stores
Cost: $23.90 (including taxes)
Production: 6000 cases
Date Tasted: April 27th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Primarily a Gewurztraminer-Riesling blend (47%-32% respectively) with smaller portions of Pinot Auzerrois, Pinot Blanc and a splash of Muscat and Schoenberger; an artful assemblage seeking balance and joy. JoieFarm's flagship wine fulfils its purpose and will put a smile on the face of even the most serious of curmudgeons thanks to its irresistible combination of off-dry Tropical-exotic fruit, tangy citrus acidity, cool mineral and savoury herb notes.
Less unctuous than previous vintages from warmer seasons, the 2014 is all about balance and sits effortlessly, though not anonymously, on the palate. Drink now-2019.
