This bottle is about C$30 in Vancouver, so I grabbed it at Safeway (!) the first evening we were in the US enroute to California. What llama doesn’t love a deal?
Clear and bright, pale gold with legs noted, on the nose it’s clean with medium plus aromas of lemon zest, leesy sweet oak, yellow apple and a crisp minerality. A youthful wine, on the palate, it’s dry with medium plus refreshing acidity, medium plus alcohol, medium plus body and medium plus flavours of Braeburn apples, lemon and lime curd. A little pineapple and guava added to the minerality, sweet oak and creamy butter and yoghurt. The finish is medium plus.
I enjoyed this wine – love the flavours and the wood while evident is not overwhelming; it’s nicely integrated. The wine has a lovely and full roundness about it – very satisfying and has great mouthfeel.
‘Very good’ wine. Take note of classy hotel ‘tasting glass’…Nothing but the best.
