Hester Creek Old Vines Block 16 Trebbiano 2018

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of the most unique wines in Canada, and this year the 1968-planted, Italian-suitcased vines are showing as confident, and relaxed as can be. Asian pear, honeysuckle, yellow plum, vibrant lemon, ripe melon and subtle quince fill the medium-bodied, sharpened palate. Perfumed papaya lingers on the finish this year, intermingling with lime zest spicing. So much not Okanagan, but yet, so very right.Tasted: 04 May 2019Tasted by: Prices:
