JoieFarm A Noble Blend 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNoble Blend was always pleasant, but a lot of sweetish white blends are. In 2017 the style shifted a bit and in 2018 we see a much more interesting electric white wine that is better suited to food. It’s still based on the Alsace classic whites of Edelzwicker, or Gentil. I love the freshness, the lime leaf, pure pear and spice that sits on the nose of this gewürztraminer, riesling, pinot blanc, pinot auxerrois and muscat blend. As good as the aromatics are, the juicy palate with its drier sheen and peppery finish is just so much more fun. Less cloying, more dramatic. Perfect for mussels, clams or fish tacos.Tasted: 17 July 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.90 winery direct Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
