Very pretty and floral! This vibrant Okanagan white wine has lovely aromas of field daisies, white peach and melon. Just a touch off-dry makes it a mouth-watering, tasty aperitif or able to handle light to medium curries and spices.

Food pairings: Thai curried prawns or a sweet chili mango chili.

Sauvignon Blanc 30%, Pinot Gris 22%, Viognier 21%,Chardonnay 15% Riesling 12%
Fruity and fresh aromas of pink grapefruit, passionfruit, mango, apricot, melon
and fresh cut grass entice the senses. On the palate, it is medium bodied with
the slightest touch of sweet honey to balance off the juicy mouth-watering
flavours of ripe apple, passionfruit, mango and apricot. The wine finishes
nicely with a subtle minerality showing on the length.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
