Culmina Family Estate Decora 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaDecora, from the Latin for beautiful, comes off Margaret’s Bench at 595 meters above sea level. The 2017 is a beautifully crafted style showing much more finesse than previous versions. It’s extremely delicate, with fleeting mineral floral undertones and scents of orchard fruits. The attack is stony with grapefruit pith and more mineral, chalky, stony notes. Not as intense as a great Mosel, but definitely tracking in the right direction. Very drinkable and well balanced; oysters on the half shell please. A super bargain, so back up the truck.Tasted: 08 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
