Bench 1775 Winery 2015 Sauvignon Blanc (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Wine club only. Direct from the winery here
Date Tasted: July 28th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Though a familiar blend of New Zealand and Loire Valley styles, the 2015 edition of the Bench 1775 Sauvignon Blanc displays a little less cohesion between the Down Under funk and the steely-French elements than in recent vintages. The nose is lifted and appealing with citrus, straw, green apple and melon aromas followed by a crisp, tangy palate combining citrus, stone and tropical fruit flavours and textures together with light herb and spice notes. To be enjoyed on its own or as a confident companion to seafood dishes. Drink now-2018.
