Van Westen Vineyards Vivacious 2006

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA fine improvement over the previous vintage. The floral, mineral, lees aromas are still present but it's cleaner and fresher on the nose and palate. The palate is crisp with bright, okay "vivacious" pear/apple fruit. This 96/4 mix of pinot blanc and pinot gris hits all the right notes for summer.Tasted: 20 April 2008Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 17.90 winery direct and private wine shops Producer: Van Westen VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
