White Wedding, Hidden Chapel Winery, Sauvignon Blanc – Viognier – Riesling, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, BC, 2011, 12.6% abv.

Purchased in summer 2011 during a foray to the Okanagan Valley, we hit a few wineries and picked this one up along the way.

It’s a pale lemon and has light legs with  stronger than average aromas of lychee, pink grapefruit, pear juice and lemon zest – like a fruit salad with a zing of citrus to keep this youthful wine lively.

With the slightest off dry palate, the wine has average acidity and alcohol with flavours of spicy tropical fruit including more lychee, some rambutan juice, lemons, bright, ripe peach  from the Viognier and a spicy pepper finish.

A WSET Good wine, drink it now; don’t age.  Enjoy with something a little spicy or some baked Christmas ham.  I paired this with ‘Barbara’s Jalapeno cheez puffs’.

Easy drinking, juicy, and doing its job.  As the name indicates, this would be a good wedding wine!
