The Market White, Sperling Vineyards, Okanagan Valley, BC, 2013, 11.6% abv, C$17

sperline 3Sign me up for more of this pleasing white made from Bacchus, Pinot Blanc and Gewürztraminer grown on the Sperling vineyards located in East Kelowna.

The colour is a medium lemon with aromas of springtime flowers, lychee, peach, nectarine, apricot and honeysuckle.    The palate gives an impression of being ever-so-lightly off dry with juicy acidity and more honeyed flavours of fresh stone fruit and a bit of pink grapefruit citrus and almond.

This is WSET Good plus – and a great deal at only $17 (at the winery).  Deliciously refreshing, its fruit is well balanced with the low alcohol, making it great to pair with just about anything, including brunch.  It’s also lovely to drink on its own.  Must buy more.

Available at stores and on lots of local wine menus throughout the BC Lower Mainland.  Try it next time you’re out at dinner or looking for something new.
