|Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Possibly Hester Creek Estate Winery's best Pinot Blanc yet, certainly the best Pinot Blanc I've ever tasted. The 2019 vintage is fabulously fresh, lush and creamy on the palate - a joy and a delight to drink.
Ultra-fresh on the nose with juicy pineapple, guava and pear aromas with same layered, smooth and mouth-filling on the palate. Medium-bodied and on this side of dry (6.2% residual sugar) this dangerously-drinkable summertime white continues with bright and concentrated stone-fruit, sage, green herbs, white pepper spice, spring-rain mineral notes finishing long, creamy and vibrant on the palate. Very delicious now and excellent value under $16. Chill and enjoy with quiche, brunch fare, patio time and anytime.
Produced from 50-plus years of age old-vines Pinot Blanc from the winery’s estate vineyard, Old Vines Block 4 on the Golden Mile Bench with some additional fruit from Block 9, planted in 1998 with Alsace Clone 54. Fermented in stainless steel tank (unoaked).

A vibrant, unoaked pinot blanc. Showcased plenty of attractive citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavours. Medium bodied with a pleasing moderate touch acidity. Overall, this is an impressive pinot blanc from the Golden Mile Bench sub-region with British Columbia’s renowned Okanagan Valley appellation. Enjoy.

Lovely and rich, but also nice and refreshing too! Fragrant, tropical aromas like pineapple and mangi along with hints of pear and citrus. Dry, medium+ bodied, smooth and creamy on the palate, but with a nice level of balancing acidity. Fruit notes are ripe and rounded, with a hint of spice and minerality on the finish. Enjoy with summer salads or light seafood dishes.
|Our estate Pinot Blanc is sourced primarily from our Old Vines Block 4 of our Golden Mile Bench Vineyard, dating back to the original historic planting in 1968. Some additional fruit is from Block 9 of our estate, planted in 1997/98 using Alsace Clone 54. An elegant, dry white with verve, this wine carries aromas of Okanagan orchard fruit, peach, nectarine and dried apricot framed with a light touch of sagebrush. The palate opens with mouth-filling peach, and light honey, leading to a fresh minerality.|
