Le Vieux Pin Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe LVP sauvignon hails from the south Okanagan, with fruit coming off Osoyoos Lake Bench and the Golden Mile Bench. The style is fresh, the acidity brisk, and the texture is Euro lean. It spends only four months on its lees in a mix of stainless steel and puncheons. Battonage has added a touch of weight, but this is lean and mean on the palate with super bright, green apple fruit tempered with flecks of gooseberry, lemongrass and melon. Marlborough meets Leyda in the Okanagan. You can pair just about anything with this snappy white, and it will work.Tasted: 28 June 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct
