Black Hills Alias 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAlias is a new wine from Black Hills but hardly a new formula. The what’s-left-in-the-tank fruit salad white mixes 30 percent riesling, 28 percent pinot blanc, 19 percent gewürztraminer, 9 percent schoenberger, 8 percent muscat, 6 percent ehrenfelser that thankfully isn’t too sweet. Still, you can expect a tropical barrage of fruit flavours held by a candied orange, pineapple, guava and passionfruit. There is enough acidity to keep it all together in the finish. A beach white you can chill down and serve with spicy sushi rolls.Tasted: 06 November 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.65 winery direct and private wine shops Producer: Black Hills Estate WineryDistributors: Andrew Peller Import Agency
