Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaExotic, intense, complex, unctuous, mineral are all words you can use to describe this giant white wine. The nose is a mix of white florals that preview a fat sumptuous wine that is as big on texture as it is on flavours. The fruit is whole-cluster pressed and fermented in various containers including concrete eggs, stainless steel barrels and older French oak barrels. Look for rich, honeyed pear, pineapple, creamy lees, and vanilla sprinkled with brown spices. Lobster, crab, or roasted chicken work here.
