JoieFarm A Noble Blend 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNoble Blend has been a success story not only for JoieFarm, but for British Columbia wine almost from its inception. In the spirit of Alsace's Edelzwicker (translated as 'a noble blend', founder / winemaker's surname), this is a blend of gewürztraminer, riesling, pinot blanc, pinot auxerrois and muscat, sourced from 11 vineyards across the Okanagan Valley. Fragrant and perfumed, this aromatic white charms with juicy rosewater, lychee, orange blossom, ripe pear, pink grapefruit with gingersnap spicing on the snappy finish. In 2016 there is a return to the lighter, leaner, nimble, fresher Noble Blend that we have grown to love over the years. Well done Noble.Tasted: 14 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 23.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
