Jill scored this wine: 88/100

A succulent dessert wine which shows warm notes of sun-kissed figs, raisins and ripe apricots on the nose and on the palate.

Frizzante Distraction

The View Winery Frizzante Distraction - 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
1856 days ago

Jill scored this wine: 90/100

This lightly effervescent wine is delightfully playful. Aromas of strawberries, cranberry and pomegranate float and bubble out of the glass. On the palate, summer’s red berry fruit fills your mouth, followed by a lingering honey finish.

The View Winery Riesling 2012

Okanagan Valley, BC V.Q.A., Canada
1856 days ago

Jill scored this wine: 92/100

This crisp mouth-watering Riesling bursts with aromas of citrus and apple blossom. Vibrant flavours of tart key lime and crisp green apples are followed by a pleasing minerality.
