Hester Creek Old Vines Block 16 Trebbiano 2011

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAt $23 trebbiano has arrived in the Okanagan. The only single bottling we know of in BC the vines date back to the early 1970s and are the oldest on the estate. The nose is an aromatic mix of bright honeysuckle and red apples. The attack is similar with ripe tropical undertones, apricots, white peach and lime rind. Think Pad Thai, spicy, grilled chicken or summer pasta dishes. Much better again under screwcap.Tasted: 05 August 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 23.00 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
