RESERVE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2017 BC VQA Okanagan Valley

Bright very pale straw colour. Youthful, slightly honeyed, yellow grapefruit-melon-apple aromas with some faint leesy notes. Dry, medium-light bodied, spicy, youthful, apple-lemon flavours with a very crisp, somewhat herbal-tinged finish. About 20 percent of the wine spends time in oak and concrete (split about 50/50) while 80% is aged on its lees in stainless steel. Has 12.8 % alcohol and 4 g/L residual sugar with a screwcap closure. Not quite up to the 2015 (**/**+) that was released on April 28, 2018 at $22.95. CSPC 57430

LCBO Note Status
Silver Medal winner at the 2018 National Wine Awards of Canada. TASTING NOTE: Punchy pink grapefruit, guava, fuzzy peach gummies in this potent, pine/sage flecked sauvignon blanc, one lined with a fine lining of creamy lees. Approximately 20 percent of the wine spends time in oak and concrete (split about 50/50) while the remainder spends time on its lees in stainless steel. Tropical, ripe and assertive, this requires something equally potent to match: think fragrant seafood or veg curries. Score - 88 (Treve Ring, winealign.com, July 18, 2018) Price $ 22.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
