Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards The Mischief Pinot Blanc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2017 is similar to the juicy 2016, though this has spent a little more time on lees for added texture, and the fruit feels much richer and expansive on the palate. From their Greata Ranch estate, this underwent a lengthy three week ferment before time in neutral oak and stainless (55/45). Yellow fruited (apple, pear, apricot), with scented melon and a wee bump of RS, which is unnecessary though intended to counter the brisk acidity through the spiced finish. Medium+ bodied, this will have wide appeal.Tasted: 24 August 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.50 private wine shops Producer: Fitzpatrick Family VineyardsDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
