Road 13 Honest John's White 2010

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe latest Honest John is a big jump up in quality with 58 percent riesling at the centre of the blend. The rest is a 5/18/4/12/3/ mix of sauvignon blanc, kerner, chardonnay, bacchus, and viognier. The nose is an explosive aromatic mix fruits that include melon and red grapefruit with a dash of honey. The palate is super fresh with more pear green apple and melon fruit with perfect tension between the acidity and sweetness. A wonderful wine for turkey.Tasted: 04 October 2011Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 17.00 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
