CedarCreek Platinum Block 9 Single Vineyard Ehrenfelser 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Ehrenfelser was deemed Platinum worthy, coming off of their single stony Block 9, and 13-16-year-old vines. Eleven percent was fermented in neutral oak, with the remainder split between stainless tanks and stainless barrels. Four months on the lees provides texture and richness to the already concentrated grapes. Honeysuckle, tangerine, honeydew, ripe pear, key lime walks that fine line between sugar and acid, deftly balancing the 11 g/L RS with 8.1 TA, and held to a smart 12.5 degrees, leaving an impression of dryness and freshness. Orange lingers on the long finish. Impressive.Tasted: 18 July 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 winery direct Producer: CedarCreek Estate WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
