Howling Bluff SQ Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon Summa Quies 2013

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe mix is roughly 85/15 sauvignon blanc/sémillon and the style is attractive. It tastes a bit riper (sweeter) this year compared to the 2012 with lots of baked apple and honey throughout. The attack is fresh with light herbaceous undertones, definite mid-palate sweetness balanced by tangy, citrus, tropical fruit character that persists into the finish. C hill this wine down and serve it with any spicy curry or pan Asian dishes, if there is any wine left before the food arrives. The winery is sold out of this label but it is widely available in BC Signature stores for a change.Tasted: 01 October 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
