Sperling Vineyards Sper...itz Organic 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis light and lively, slightly sper…itzy wine is a 50/50 blend of the obscure perle of csaba grape, and slightly more familiar bacchus. Anne Sperling, one of Canada's most famous winemakers, makes this from the biodynamically-farmed, limestone-laced Kelowna land that her grandparents settled more than 150 years ago. You can think of this as a local spin on northern Italy's Moscato d'Asti. Mid-sweet and light (only 7.9 degrees alcohol), this is all fragrant roses, perfumed honeycrisp apple, pink grapefruit and gingerale. Acidity is grapefruit laced and ample to keep this sweetie lively. Pair with pavlova, or sweeter brunch dishes.Tasted: 24 May 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Sperling VineyardsDistributors: Revelry Import Company
