JoieFarm A Noble Blend 2011

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine has scored well over the years but we were always looking for that something extra: more pure fruit, and less of those rind-y bitter notes in the finish so prevalent in many aromatic Okanagan blends. The '11 NB puts riesling to the head of the blend at 38 percent the rest of the mix is 33/14/11/4 gewürztraminer/pinot blanc/pinot auxerrois/schönburger; the result is magic. So pure and fresh and focused with intense tangerine, guava and fruit aromas and flavours. This is a delicious bottle of wine.Tasted: 11 July 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 24.00 winery direct, private wine shops ON 34.00 Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
