Van Westen Vineyards Vivacious 2014

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2014 brings a riper version of this blend. Still fresh with green apple fruit but with a touch of honeysuckle. The attack is a juicy with peach, and ripe pear fruit with a slightly oily/candied lemon finish. Vivacious is mostly pinot blanc mixed with a dash of pinot gris (which may explain its flatter profile this year) all home grown on the Home Lot Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. Try this with a Thai curry dish.Tasted: 01 January 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.30 winery direct, private wine shops, restaurants Producer: Van Westen VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
