Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Pinot Blanc Middle Bench Vineyard 2018

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of the standout pinot blancs in BC, and the 2018 Clos du Soleil follows suit. A light dusting of sage and thyme infiltrates pear, Asian pear, white peach and nectarine, with a cut of green apple acidity to sharpen. From Middle Bench Vineyard, in Keremeos, this was whole cluster pressed before a long, cool ferment and rest in stainless on the lees. Tight, energetic, spiced and bright, this rises blanc far beyond the blah.Tasted: 07 July 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.90 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
