Reviews and Ratings

Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A lovely Canadian wine. A great white to have on an evening while chilling with friends. Can easily be drank alone or goes well with sushi. I felt it had a light smell of apple and a light acid taste of pear and pineapple.
Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This lovely fruit forward and refreshing patio sipper is vinified with the fruit from five distinct growing areas in the Okanagan Valley, ensuring high quality and consistency year after year.
The palate is of ripe apples, peaches and pears with a splash of citrus. Beautifully balanced with crisp acidity, it would make a great companion to grilled fish and summer salads or on its own as a delightful aperitif.
Ripe fruit with refreshing acidity is the hallmark of this Pinot Blanc. Intense aromas of yellow apple, peach and nectarine fill the glass, along with hints of spice. The palate is full of ripe fruit notes and is backed by citrus infused acidity.
