Jason Parkes Customs Crown + Thieves Chenin Blanc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Jason Parkes pays homage to South Africa chenin blanc, referring to it as the ultimate wine geek white. Translation: adored by industry types but difficult to sell to the mainstream market. Parkes also references the Loire Valley chenin blanc suggesting the Okanagan has much in common with the Loire. This wine was tank fermented before spending ten months on lees in oak to build texture and mouthfeel. Its pretty delicious stuff, taut and super fresh with crisp green apple, green melon, stone and almonds. Impressive wine that is totally nerd worthy.Tasted: 08 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.99 winery direct, private retail, restaurants Producer: The HatchDistributors: Winery Direct
