JoieFarm A Noble Blend 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFirmly seated as a BC classic, this blend of gewürztraminer, riesling, pinot auxerrois, pinot blanc, muscat and schoenberger is crafted in the spirit of Edelzwicker, the traditional aromatic white blend of Alsace. Sourced from vineyards across the Okanagan, this leads with perfumed white flowers, candied citrus and rosewater before a medium bodied palate of orchard fruit, lychee and a little swell of juicy acidity, impressive in warm 2015, the earliest vintage on record in the Okanagan. Much leaner and more streamlined than the lusciousness of years past though it works; this is a slimmed down vintage, and one to match with Pad Thai or green curry.Tasted: 25 April 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
