Quails' Gate Late Harvest Totally Botrytis Affected Optima 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOptima is hardly a household name in BC, but this Quails’ Gate label never seems to disappoint from its rich ginger, apricot, floral nose to its honey, ginger spicy lime/apricot fruit. The nose is weightier than this juicy dessert wine that dances on the palate with freshness and bright acidity. Impressive, mouth-filling and more complex than most icewines. Now that it's under screwcap this is a great candidate for the cellar where it should sleep effortlessly for years.Tasted: 04 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.99 375 BCLS AB 30.00 375 fine wine shops SK 30.00 375 MB 30.00 375 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
