JoieFarm A Noble Blend 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis BC classic varies widely every year, and the 2017 is on the leaner, streamlined side of the spectrum. This is based on the spirit of Edelzwicker, Alsace's traditional Germanic varietal blend. Just so happens that the literal translation of Edelzwicker is 'a noble blend', and fittingly, winemaker/founder Heidi's last name is Noble. Lime leaf, pear blossom, fine tight spicing lead this year's incarnation, a blend of gew├╝rztraminer, riesling, pinot auxerrios, pinot blanc, and muscat. Aromatically very pure, with rosewater, gingersnap, tight pear, lime peel, streaming along the palate, with a dusting of white pepper piquing the finish. Again, well done Noble.Tasted: 24 May 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.90 winery direct Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
