Howling Bluff Sauvignon Blanc 2016Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAt thirteen-years-old, the vineyard is delivering more consistent fruit, as is winemaker Luke Smith. There is always a hint of sweetness to this wine, I think because his wife likes it that way, but it’s balanced with a rush of lime rind and grassy gooseberry/grapefruit flavours. Chill this down and head for a patio on a warm summer’s day and serve with some spicy tuna rolls.Tasted: 26 June 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
